Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Treatment

At Balanced Skin Dermatology and Aesthetics in Newport Beach, our board-certified dermatologists offer platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatments to harness your body's natural healing power for skin rejuvenation and hair restoration. This cutting-edge treatment uses your own blood platelets to stimulate collagen production, improve skin texture and tone, and promote hair growth in a safe, natural way.

What is Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Treatment?

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a concentrated portion of your own blood that contains a high number of platelets, growth factors, and other nutrients essential for tissue repair and regeneration. When injected into the skin or scalp, PRP stimulates the body's natural healing processes, promoting collagen production, cell turnover, and new tissue growth.

PRP treatments are minimally invasive and can be used to address a variety of skin and hair concerns, including:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Uneven skin texture and tone
  • Acne scars and other types of scarring
  • Hyperpigmentation and sun damage
  • Hair loss and thinning hair
  • Overall skin rejuvenation

Our experienced dermatologists will assess your individual needs and goals to determine if PRP treatment is right for you and develop a personalized treatment plan to help you achieve optimal results.

The PRP Treatment Process

PRP treatments are performed in our state-of-the-art facility by our board-certified dermatologists. The process typically takes 45-60 minutes and involves the following steps:

  1. A small sample of your blood is drawn and placed in a centrifuge.
  2. The centrifuge spins the blood at high speeds to separate the platelets and plasma from the other components.
  3. The concentrated PRP is then extracted and prepared for injection.
  4. Your skin is cleansed, and a topical numbing cream may be applied for your comfort.
  5. The PRP is injected into the targeted areas of your skin or scalp using fine needles.
  6. A soothing cream is applied to the treated area, and you will be provided with aftercare instructions.

Most patients experience minimal discomfort during the procedure and can return to their normal activities immediately afterward. Some mild redness, swelling, or bruising may occur but typically subsides within a few days.

PRP for Skin Rejuvenation

PRP treatments can be used to rejuvenate the skin on the face, neck, décolletage, and hands. By stimulating collagen production and cell turnover, PRP can help to:

  • Reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Improve skin texture and tone
  • Minimize pores and acne scars
  • Brighten and even out skin complexion
  • Enhance skin elasticity and firmness

We may recommend a series of 3-6 PRP treatments, spaced 4-6 weeks apart, for optimal skin rejuvenation results. Many patients notice improvement in their skin quality and appearance within a few weeks of their first treatment, with results continuing to improve over time.

PRP for Hair Restoration

PRP treatments can also be used to promote hair growth in patients experiencing hair loss or thinning hair. When injected into the scalp, the growth factors and nutrients in PRP can help to:

  • Stimulate dormant hair follicles
  • Increase blood flow to the hair follicles
  • Strengthen and thicken existing hair
  • Slow down or prevent further hair loss

We typically recommend a series of 3-6 PRP treatments for hair restoration, spaced 4-6 weeks apart, followed by maintenance treatments every 6-12 months. Many patients notice improvement in hair thickness and density within 3-6 months of starting treatment.

Combining PRP with Other Treatments

PRP treatments can be used on their own or in combination with other cosmetic procedures for enhanced results. Some popular combination treatments include:

  • Microneedling with PRP (also known as the "Vampire Facial") for skin rejuvenation
  • Laser resurfacing with PRP for more dramatic skin renewal
  • Hair transplantation with PRP to improve graft survival and hair growth

Our experienced dermatologists will work with you to create a personalized treatment plan that addresses all of your concerns and helps you achieve your ultimate aesthetic goals.
