PRP Q & A

What is platelet-rich plasma (PRP) rejuvenation?

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatment uses your blood to encourage the growth of new cells and collagen. Doctors have used PRP therapy for more than a decade to speed up healing in damaged joints. Now, this treatment is successfully applied to stimulate hair growth and rejuvenate facial skin.

During PRP treatment, Dr. Zakariaei performs a standard blood draw and then places your blood in a centrifuge, where your plasma separates from your blood. The plasma, which is rich in white blood cells and platelets, is then re-injected into the target area, triggering new cell growth at the injection site.

What happens during PRP hair growth treatment?

During PRP hair growth treatment, Dr. Zakariaei carefully injects the plasma into your scalp at the level of the hair follicles. The injections stimulate the hair follicles to grow new hair.  Treatment usually takes about 30 minutes.

Patients come for injections monthly for the first three months. They then generally have treatments every three or four months for up to two years. The schedule depends on many factors, including the amount of hair loss, age, and hormones.

PRP is most useful for recent hair loss. It can bring back to life a hair follicle that has completely stopped growing hair. Usually, PRP regrows about 30% of missing hair when the hair loss is within five years.

What happens during a PRP facial treatment?

With PRP facial treatment, sometimes referred to as a “vampire facial,” Dr. Zakariaei injects the plasma into areas of your face that require rejuvenation. The plasma helps stimulate collagen production under the skin’s surface, repairing and regenerating damaged or aging skin. This results in a healthier and fuller appearance.

PRP facial treatment can reduce:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Sagging skin
  • Volume loss in the face
  • Crow’s feet
  • Dark circles under the eyes
  • Acne scarring
  • Rosacea

New collagen begins to grow 3-6 weeks after treatment, and you will continue to see improvement over 3-6 months. The results can last from 12 months to two years. There is no recovery time or any side effects from PRP treatment.
