Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Q&A

What is platelet-rich plasma (PRP)?

Platelet-rich plasma is a concentrated liquid containing blood platelets and plasma. It comes from a small blood sample you provide. 

Your blood platelets contain active growth factors substances that stimulate healing and new cell growth. But your whole blood is less than 1% platelets. 

With PRP treatment, the Brooklyn Aesthetics team uses a special process to spin your blood sample at a very high speed. This concentrates the platelets within the plasma (the liquid carrier for your blood cells) and removes the red blood cells. 

What is platelet-rich plasma used for?

Brooklyn Aesthetics offers several PRP treatments in the office, including: 

PRP facial

PRP facials start with microneedling, which involves pricking your skin with tiny needles. This helps your body make fresh collagen for firming your skin and elastin for skin tightening. 

Then, the team spreads PRP over your face so it infuses all of the skin layers. The PRP jump-starts your collagen and elastin production even more. A PRP facial can lessen fine lines, shrink large pores, smooth rough skin, and improve skin tightness and firmness.

PRP facelift

A PRP facelift combines a PRP facial with dermal fillers. If you have more dramatic volume loss, like nasolabial folds, thin cheeks, and marionette lines, the PRP facelift can really transform your skin. 

The fillers provide instant changes in skin volume, and the PRP works over time to help your skin revitalize from below. 

PRP for hair loss 

The growth factors in PRP can stimulate new hair growth. They “wake up” hair follicles that quit growing hair, helping you grow strong and healthy new hair to fill in thinning areas. 

So if you can see more scalp than you used to, if your ponytail is thinner than it was, or if your part is widening, you could be a good candidate for hair restoration with PRP. 

How many PRP treatments do I need?

It depends on why you’re having PRP treatment. For a PRP facial, you generally need several treatments spaced over 3-6 months. 

For a PRP facelift, you typically need one treatment once or twice a month for 3-4 consecutive months. You can then maintain your facelift results with a single treatment once or twice a year.

For PRP hair restoration, you need a series of initial treatments. Once you reach your goals, a maintenance treatment every 3-6 months is ideal.
