Platelet-rich plasma, also known as PRP, is a powerful substance found within your blood that can help heal your body, promote hair growth, and rejuvenate your complexion. At Proper Eu Medical & Aesthetics Center in Grand Rapids, MI, we offer PRP treatments to help patients target complexion imperfections, hair loss, and hair thinning and help them reach their aesthetic goals naturally.
Some of the most effective cosmetic treatments are also the most natural treatments. Our PRP treatments rely on the healing powers found within the human body to repair damaged and dormant hair follicles, rejuvenate the skin, and improve the complexion. We offer PRP treatments designed to heal and restore hair follicles to encourage noticeable and healthy hair growth, stimulate collagen, and improve scarring.
What Is Platelet Rich Plasma?
Platelet Rich Plasma is a healing substance that contains concentrated platelets with growth factors and regenerative properties derived from human blood. It’s the basis of all of our PRP treatments, and we utilize it to force the body to heal itself while benefiting from all of its regenerative properties and abilities. All of our PRP treatments begin with a standard blood draw.
One of our medical experts will perform a standard blood draw and then run that blood sample through a device called a centrifuge. This device spins the blood to separate the platelet-rich plasma from the rest of the blood while simultaneously concentrating the platelets. Once separated and prepared, these platelets will be administered accordingly based on your area of concern.
Microneedling With PRP
Microneedling is an effective form of collagen induction therapy that creates small injuries on the surface of the skin to force the body to respond with a healing reaction and increase collagen and elastin production. We perform microneedling treatments with the SkinPen, and can take your results to the next level by implementing platelet-rich plasma into the treatment process.
Microneedling is an effective way to smooth lines and wrinkles, fight the more severe signs of aging, improve the appearance of acne or surgical scars, improve skin tone and texture, restore youth and volume to the skin, and combat textural irregularities.
How It Works
This treatment process begins with applying a topical numbing solution to the treatment area, followed by a microneedling session with the SkinPen microneedling device. This pen-like device contains sterile, tiny, hair-thin medical-grade needles that repetitively stamp the skin to create thousands of micro-channels. These micro-channels are also known as micro-injuries and act as pathways from the top layer of the skin into the deeper layers.
Anything you apply during and after the treatment process will be better absorbed by the body. Our specialist will apply the healing platelet serum to your skin during the process so that it can absorb into those micro-channels and create positive changes in the appearance and health of your skin.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect?
Patients often notice an immediate improvement in their skin following a microneedling treatment. The best results are most visible within four to eight weeks of undergoing the recommended number of microneedling sessions. Collagen production can take up to 12 weeks, so you can expect to see visible results within the first three months of the treatment process.
PRP FOR HAIR RESTORATION
PRP for hair restoration is a treatment process that treats balding, thinning, or receding hair, and it can help improve and restore hair growth in both men and women. If you’re looking for a hair restoration treatment that works, is natural, and won’t result in adverse reactions, you may be the perfect candidate for our hair restoration treatments.
HOW IT WORKS
The first step in this process is an initial consultation. One of our experts will evaluate your hair concerns and then create a treatment plan that helps you grow healthier, thicker, and longer hair. During the treatment process, after isolating your platelets and preparing them into an injectable form, we will administer them into some strategic areas on your scalp to treat the areas where you have experienced hair loss, hair thinning, or a receding hairline.
WHAT KIND OF RESULTS CAN I EXPECT?
Once you undergo the recommended number of treatments, you can expect to see improvements in the appearance and health of your hair within several weeks of beginning the process. Hair growth does take time, so the best way to track your progress is by taking weekly pictures of your treatment area.
In doing so, you’ll notice slow and steady hair growth as your body responds to the treatment process and heals the damaged hair follicles or restores those that have been dormant.
THE PRP FACIAL
The PRP facial is an effective cosmetic treatment that can improve the complexion on different levels. It promotes increased collagen production, thereby forcing the body to make more of the original and most natural dermal filler and, in doing so, plumps the skin and help smooth fine lines and wrinkles.
This treatment will also help the skin look and feel tighter, firmer, and healthier. It can create a more uniform skin tone, treat and smooth skin textural irregularities, and improve the skin’s moisture retention.
HOW IT WORKS
This facial involves a series of injections of platelet-rich plasma into some strategic areas of the face. Your esthetician will make precise, quick, and virtually painless injections into your problem areas, and then your treatment will be complete.
WHAT KIND OF RESULTS CAN I EXPECT?
You may notice some improvements in your complexion immediately following your facial. Still, the best results appear within the first six months post-treatment as your body produces more collagen and uses the platelet-rich plasma to heal the skin and perfect the complexion. Results can last up to 18 months, and follow-up treatments will help you maintain your youthful skin long-term.
