PRP can be used for both hair and the skin.  Facial Injections include reducing the prominence of scars, wrinkles, sun damage, and dark circles. Scalp injections are used for hair growth.

Both include a 3 step process :

Step 1

Your blood is drawn — typically from your arm — and put into a centrifuge (a machine that spins rapidly to separate fluids of different densities).

Step 2

After about 3 minutes in the centrifuge, your blood will have separated into in two layers:

  • platelet-rich plasma
  • red blood cells

Step 3

The platelet-rich plasma is drawn up into a syringe and then injected into areas of the scalp that need increased hair growth or injected to the face to reduce prominence of scars, wrinkles, sun damage, and dark circles.
