To help understand platelet-rich plasma, it’s first helpful to understand the main component of this solution: platelets. Platelets are one of the elements in your blood. Whenever you’re injured, your body directs platelets to the area. They help your blood clot and bring growth factors to the area, fueling regeneration.
PRP is a solution that Dr. Sandhu derives from your blood. She first takes an incredibly small sample of your blood, then places it in a centrifuge. Using the centrifuge, she separates the platelets from the other components of your blood, leaving her with PRP.
Using that PRP, she can direct platelets into your skin, triggering regeneration and rejuvenating the appearance of your skin.
To allow the PRP to penetrate deeply, Dr. Sandhu prepares your skin by microneedling it. During microneedling, she moves a device over the surface of your skin that makes tiny pinpricks in your skin’s surface. On its own, microneedling is an effective skin treatment because it jumpstarts your body’s healing processes and triggers the production of collagen, the protein that keeps your skin even and elastic. But when combined with PRP, it’s especially effective.
The microneedling creates tiny channels in your skin. When Dr. Sandhu applies the PRP after microneedling, the platelets travel through these channels into the deeper layers of your skin, delivering optimal results. You’ll see your full results within a month once the PRP has had the opportunity to go to work in your skin.
Dr. Sandhu chose to offer PRP at New Image Medical Spa for two reasons. First, because the PRP is derived from your own body, it’s a safe and natural way to transform your skin. Secondly, it’s highly effective. She uses PRP treatment to address:
She can also combine PRP with Botox® and dermal fillers to help you turn back the clock. With this combined, minimally invasive face-lift, she reduces the appearance of the signs of aging and leaves you looking refreshed.
PRP is also effective at reversing hair loss. By injecting it into your scalp over a series of treatments, Dr. Sandhu reactivates hair follicles that have fallen dormant while encouraging strong, thick hair shaft growth in all of the follicles across your head. If you want a way to naturally restore your hair, don’t hesitate to ask Dr. Sandhu about PRP treatment.
