PLATELET RICH PLASMA
THE SCIENCE OF BEAUTY

PRP injections in Lakewood, Colorado

By drawing a small amount of blood, then placing it into our centrifuge, we spin it rapidly to create three separate layers: platelet poor plasma, platelet rich plasma, and red blood cells. The PRP layer, which appears to look like liquid gold and is sometimes called your body's "fountain of youth", is a condensed mixture of growth factors and miscellaneous skin nutrients. PRP is then injected or microneedled into the area discussed in your initial consultation, such as under your eyes to stimulate natural collagen production and to promote healing.

By the way, PRP is also known by other names, including platelet-enriched plasma (PeRP), platelet-rich concentrate (PRC), platelet-rich fibrin (PRF), and autogenous platelet gel

Most people first heard about Platelet Rich Plasma therapy several years ago, when athletes started receiving it to reduce inflammation in muscles and promote faster tissue healing from injuries.

Anyone experiencing hair loss is essentially a good candidate for PRP treatments, but those with early hair loss tend to respond best. Acute telogen effluvium is a non-scaring hair loss, usually occurs 3 months after the stressful event that causes hair shedding, and lasts up to 6 months. It can be associated with post COVID-19 infection. PRP is best used for patients with androgenic alopecia, which is a genetically determined type of hair thinning that typically occurs along the top of the head.In women, this might look like a widening part with normal hair thickness at the back of the head.

For best results, consistency is key. Treatments are typically performed once a month for the first three to four months, and then every three to six months thereafter, depending on the individual patient's response and results. Following this protocol, anticipated results can first be seen within two to three months.

The first result that patients usually note is decreased hair shedding, followed by early regrowth and increased length of hair. The general consensus is that receiving treatments every three to six months on a long-term basis are optimal for continuing to stimulate the growth factors and stem cells that are associated with regrowth and stopping hair fallout.

Important after a PRP injection where it is typical to notice some swelling, a bit of bruising, red puncture marks, soreness, or itchiness.
