Platelet-Rich Plasma for Hair & Skin

Platelet-rich plasma therapy, or PRP, is offered at Houston Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery for skin renewal and hair restoration. This therapy harnesses the nourishing capabilities of your body's own blood platelets to stimulate new growth in skin and hair cells.

What Is PRP?

PRP stands for "platelet-rich plasma," and it represents an innovative option for treating many common aesthetic concerns. Although PRP is new to the world of cosmetic medicine, it's been used for years in fields such as orthopedics, where doctors use it to help speed healing after certain types of injury. Your own blood platelets are rich in growth factors and other nourishing ingredients. And because the active ingredient in this treatment comes from your own body, it's exceptionally well tolerated.

Before any treatment with PRP, your provider at Houston Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery first draws your blood in a typical phlebotomy procedure. Your blood is then added to a special device that separates the platelets from its other elements. Once they've been isolated and purified, a process that takes only a few minutes, they can be used for skin rejuvenation or hair restoration.

Hair Restoration

How It Works

Using PRP for hair restoration at Houston Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery is a rather straightforward process that can yield big results. During this procedure, your provider injects your platelets into your scalp, where they go to work fortifying and stimulating your hair follicles. You can expect to return to your regular activities as soon as your office visit is over.

Your Results

PRP for hair restoration can be used as a complement to over-the-counter methods, such as Rogaine®, or on its own. Your results will likely take several weeks to develop and can continue to improve and last for 1 year after your initial procedure.

Skin Rejuvenation

3 Ways to Benefit

  • On its own: When administered as a solitary procedure, platelet-rich plasma can be used to add volume to certain areas of the face and reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles. This technique creates subtle results that are well tolerated.
  • With microneedling: This upgraded "facial" first primes the skin with microneedling, a nonsurgical treatment that uses the Eclipse MicroPen to create invisible channels in the skin that stimulate its natural regenerative abilities and make it more receptive to skincare products. When PRP is added to this popular treatment, your platelets are massaged into your skin during the microneedling procedure. The growth factors in your platelets are absorbed deeply into your skin and immediately go to work stimulating the development of collagen and supporting your skin's natural ability to heal itself.
  • With facelift: This is the most significant option. When added to your facelift surgery, PRP can support the healing process and improve your results, giving your new facial contours an extra boost and facilitating healthy cellular turnover in the days and weeks following your surgery.
