What is PRP?
The plasma in the blood contains red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets. In Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP), the plasma is centrifuged to remove the red blood cells. This leaves a greater concentration of growth platelets, which speeds the healing and rejuvenation process. PRP is now used in several specialties, including plastic surgery, orthopedics, dentistry, and dermatology.
Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy can be used for:
- Stimulating growth after hair loss
- Rejuvenating facials
- Treatment of sun damage
Using PRP in Dermatology Treatments
In skin treatments, PRP harnesses your body’s own natural healing abilities to stimulate collagen production and promote skin recovery. This treatment is effective for correcting a wide variety of imperfections caused by aging and environmental factors, such as fine lines, deep wrinkles, acne scarring, sun damage, and hair restoration.
At NorCal Dermatology Group, we perform:
- PRP injection with microneedling
- PRP with fillers
- PRP hair restoration
In addition to providing innovative treatments, we also want to share our knowledge with our patients. We take the time to evaluate your skin, discuss your goals, explain the treatment options, and work with you to create a treatment plan that is best suited to your needs. Our Berkeley PRP treatments are always personalized to meet the patient's unique goals.
