PRP stands for Platelet-Rich Plasma; it is a treatment technique that utilizes a patient’s own blood to promote healing and rejuvenation in various aesthetic procedures.

Platelet-Rich Plasma is derived from the patient’s own blood through a process called centrifugation. The patient’s blood is drawn and then spun in a centrifuge to separate the plasma, which contains a high concentration of platelets, from the other components of blood.

Platelets are tiny cell fragments that play a crucial role in the body’s natural healing process. They contain growth factors and other bioactive substances that aid in tissue repair, stimulate collagen production, and promote cellular regeneration.


How is PRP used?

At Cleveland Plastic Surgery Institute, PRP is used in the following procedures:

Facial Rejuvenation

PRP can be injected into the skin or combined with microneedling to enhance skin texture, tone, and overall appearance. The growth factors in PRP help stimulate collagen and elastin production, leading to improved skin elasticity and reduction of fine lines and wrinkles.

Hair Restoration

PRP injections can be used to treat hair loss or thinning hair. When injected into the scalp, the growth factors in PRP promote hair follicle health and stimulate hair growth.

Scar Reduction

PRP can be applied topically or injected into the skin to help minimize the appearance of scars, including acne scars or surgical scars. It aids in the remodeling of the skin tissue and encourages the production of new, healthier skin cells.

What should be considered?

PRP treatments in aesthetic medicine are generally considered safe since the plasma is derived from the patient’s own blood, reducing the risk of adverse reactions. However, like any medical procedure, it is important to consult with a qualified aesthetic professional who can assess your suitability for the treatment and guide you through the process.
