What is Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)?
In recent years, aesthetic practitioners have learned to harness the body’s ability to heal itself to achieve beautiful and natural cosmetic outcomes. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) in aesthetic medicine takes advantage of the natural regenerative process and can harness those abilities to amplify the natural growth factors your body uses to heal tissue and stimulate collagen and hair follicle regeneration. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy uses a patient’s own platelets to complement microneedling treatments, as well as to achieve hair follicle and collagen stimulation when injected subcutaneously.
PRP injections are prepared by taking a small amount of a patients own blood and running it through a centrifuge to concentrate the platelets. These activated platelets are then used topically or are injected directly into areas where hair has begun thinning or falling out due to hormonal or nutritional deficiencies, or where the underlying collagen matrix needs stimulating (under the eyes or the backs of the hands, for example). This releases growth factors that stimulate and increase the number of reparative cells your body produces.
At Aesthetic Surgery Centre & Medispa we harness the power of PRP to achieve optimal aesthetic outcomes for our patients. Ask one of our providers during a free consultation if PRP would benefit your aesthetic goals

"I've been seeing Dr. Woodman since '08 for an eye condition called Blepharospasm. 12 years, 4x a year getting my getting shots on my eyelids and around the eye area. It's painful, however, they take time to make sure I'm as comfortable as I can be. I would highly recommend Dr. Woodman to anyone. He has an experienced staff as well."- M.M. / Google / Jan 02, 2021
"Dr. Ehret took out my old implants not knowing what size they were because I had them put in a long time ago by another doctor. I communicated with him that I liked my size but only wanted them a slight bit bigger and lifted. I was worried a little because we didn’t know the size of the implant that we were replacing until he took them out during surgery. They turned out absolutely perfect.. because he listens very well to what I wanted:) 5 stars!!"- S.S. / Google / Dec 19, 2020
