As we age, the elasticity in our skin reduces, leading to the formation of wrinkles and bags. The hair, under the onslaught of the environment, can lose its sheen and become dry and brittle, eventually breaking off.

While there are many surgical treatments to restore the youthfulness of the face and while there are multiple hair care products that give our hair the instantaneous brightness and strength it needs, these solutions are either too extensive or too temporary.

PRP FOR SKIN - BETTER THAN DERMAL FILLERS

The skin is plagued by wrinkles, fine lines, pockmarks, bags under the eyes, marionette lines, pigmentation and other dermatological conditions. While dermal fillers containing hyaluronic acid are used to fill in the sagging, hollow face and tighten the loose folds of skin, it can become challenging to address pigmentation and acne marks with them. Additional treatments like acid peels or laser treatments may be necessary, which can be painful for some. Additionally, the dermal fillers only offer temporary relief and may need to be supplemented with surgery if a more permanent solution is required.

All of this can take a massive toll on your skin, further ruining it. The PRP treatment, on the other hand, is the ideal solution to retain beautiful and healthy skin for years, without subjecting the skin to stressful cosmetic procedures.

The plasma in the PRP treatment stimulates the production of natural collagen and elastin in the face. The plasma fuels the repair and rejuvenation of the dermal cells, enabling your skin to become younger, fresher and more supple naturally. The PRP procedure, with its natural treatment, stimulates the healing of the skin, one fine line at a time, while also addressing the challenges posed by pigmentation, discoloration and acne scars.

As the plasma improves the volume and elasticity of your skin, any depressions formed on the face due to acne scarring will automatically reduce. The plasma will also improve skin tone and stimulate the production of vital nutrients and chemicals which make your skin more even-toned in appearance.

PRP for skin is ideal for anyone who wishes to reduce the appearance of aging and sun damage in the skin.

PRP FOR HAIR - SAY GOODBYE TO HAIR LOSS

Has your hair been falling uncontrollably in clumps? Is no medication or hair care treatment working its charm? Does shiny, thick hair last only a few months? If you’ve answered yes to any of these questions, know that the PRP treatment is right for you.

A common misconception amongst hair loss victims is that creams, lotions, and pills are effective on everyone. However, the truth is that topical medication often does not work on everyone. Getting a hair transplant also is no guarantee that you will regain the thick mane you were so proud of. There are times when patches of the newly transplanted hair fail to take root and fall out, leaving behind unsightly spots.

The PRP treatment for hair loss, on the other hand, is designed to stimulate hair growth in the scalp while reducing the amount of hair fall. The plasma when injected into the scalp, rejuvenates the hair follicles, stimulating the growth of new hair. The plasma increases the life cycle of the hair, increases hair count and improves thickness of the strands.

The PRP is one of the best treatments for people suffering from androgenic alopecia. The plasma reduces the effect of the condition by healing the hair follicles, fortifying and strengthening them. Additionally, anyone who experiences extensive hair loss should also consider this top treatment with PRP Brentwood relies on.

HOW IS THE TREATMENT PERFORMED?

Step 1: Consultation
The PRP treatment starts with the initial consultation where Dr. Kia will examine your skin and hair to identify the extensiveness of damage. He will then chart a treatment plan to address your condition.

The PRP treatment is a completely non-invasive procedure that doesn’t involve any risks. However, as a general rule, we request all those who are pregnant and expecting to inform the doctor of the same, as it will allow him to plan the treatment to suit your body’s needs.

Step 2: The procedure
First, blood is drawn from you in the required quantity and is then poured into a centrifuge machine. This machine separates the red blood cells (RBCs) from the plasma. Once the centrifuge is operated, and the blood is separated, the plasma is collected in another vial.

This plasma is then poured into an injectable and is injected into the part of the body being treated. During skin treatments, the plasma is injected into the specific areas of the face which require the most attention. For the hair, the plasma is injected into pre-decided points on the scalp and the hairline, which can offer a comprehensive effect on hair growth.

The number of injections will be decided by the doctor based on your unique requirements.

Step 3: Recovery
Post-treatment, you may notice redness and swelling on the areas treated. There will also be tenderness and pain in the location of the treatment, all of which will reduce within the next few days.

You should begin to notice the complete benefits of the PRP treatment 1-2 months after the injections and the entire results may also take a year to manifest. These benefits will last up to 5 years after the treatment.

Dr. Kia will provide a post-treatment recovery plan which needs to be followed with care. If you have any questions about the treatment or wish to schedule a consultation, feel free to contact us to speak with a member of our team.
