Natural Treatments for Skin and Hair
You may have heard of Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) as another natural treatment to combat aging and help reverse hair loss. It made headlines when celebrities like Kim Kardashian were having so-called “Vampire Facials” and it is becoming an increasingly popular treatment for thinning hair, especially in women.
PRP is a component of your own blood containing powerful cells and growth factors that show great promise in the area of regenerative medicine – the study of rebuilding human cells. It can be used as an anti-aging treatment for your skin, stimulating new collagen production. When used in the scalp, it has been shown to slow down or even reverse some types of hair loss by shortening the rest cycle and increasing the growth cycle of hair follicles.
After a simple blood draw, we separate the red blood cells from plasma using a centrifuge and then concentrate the ‘liquid gold’ PRP with a second spin cycle. Your PRP can then be used in a variety of ways, including with micro-needling for aging skin or acne scars, injected into wrinkles, crepy skin or into your scalp to fight hair loss.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is considered to be a safe, natural treatment because it uses cells and growth factors from your own blood, which cannot be rejected.
