What is PRP?

PRP in New York City and Long Island is a cutting-edge treatment that utilizes a patient’s own blood to promote natural healing and rejuvenation. In PRP therapy, blood is drawn from the patient and processed to isolate the platelet-rich plasma, which is then injected or applied topically to target areas such as scars, hair loss, under eyes, and even for procedures like the “Vampire Facial.”

  • Scarring: PRP therapy for scarring utilizes platelet-rich plasma to promote tissue repair and regeneration, helping to improve the appearance of scars. By stimulating collagen production and enhancing skin healing, PRP can lead to smoother and more even skin texture, reducing the visibility of scars.
  • Hair Restoration: PRP also works amazingly for hair restoration, as we inject platelet-rich plasma into the scalp to stimulate hair growth and improve hair density. The growth factors in PRP nourish hair follicles, promote new hair growth, and help maintain existing hair, leading to thicker, fuller hair over time.
  • Under Eyes: Say goodbye to tired eyes, PRP for eye bags involves the application of platelet-rich plasma to the delicate skin under the eyes to address concerns such as dark circles, puffiness, and fine lines. This natural treatment harnesses the regenerative properties of PRP to rejuvenate the under-eye area, promoting collagen production and improving skin texture and tone.
  • Vampire Facial: The well-known Vampire Facial is a cosmetic procedure performed by our own Nurse Maris. The PRP is applied to the face after microneedling, stimulating collagen production and promoting skin rejuvenation. This treatment is popular for its ability to improve skin texture, tone, and overall appearance, giving the skin a youthful glow.

Expectations on the day of PRP treatment

On the day of your PRP treatment, you can expect a personalized approach to address your specific concerns.

For scars, the first step involves cleansing the treatment area and applying a topical numbing cream to minimize discomfort. Next, our team will draw a small amount of your blood and centrifuge it to separate the platelet-rich plasma (PRP). The PRP is then injected directly into the scar tissue to stimulate collagen production and promote healing.

For hair restoration, the treatment typically begins with cleansing the scalp and applying a local anesthetic to ensure your comfort. After the PRP is prepared, we will use a series of injections to deliver the PRP directly into the scalp, targeting areas of thinning or baldness. This helps to nourish the hair follicles, improve circulation, and encourage new hair growth.

When addressing under-eye concerns, such as dark circles or hollowing, the process begins with gentle cleansing of the under-eye area. The PRP is then carefully injected into the targeted areas to stimulate collagen production and improve skin texture and volume, resulting in a more refreshed and youthful appearance.

Additionally, if you opt for a Vampire Facial with Nurse Maris, she will begin by thoroughly cleansing your face. Once the PRP is prepared, she will use a microneedling device to create tiny punctures in the skin and then apply the PRP topically. This allows the PRP to penetrate deeper into the skin, enhancing collagen production and improving overall skin texture and tone. Throughout the treatment, Nurse Maris will ensure your comfort and safety, providing a relaxing and rejuvenating experience.

PRP Recovery

After any form of PRP, you may experience some redness, swelling, or bruising at the injection sites, but these symptoms typically subside within a few days. It’s essential to stay hydrated and maintain a healthy lifestyle to support the body’s natural healing process. Most patients can resume their regular activities immediately after PRP treatment, although you may need to avoid certain skincare products or treatments for a short period; we will create a post-procedure plan that includes these products.
