Whether you’re seeking a non-invasive solution to rejuvenate your skin or want a safer method to restore hair growth, the HBH PRP (platelet-rich plasma) treatment is an effective option. Many patients choose this method to experience anti-aging benefits because there is no foreign solution used and there is no risk of treatment rejection. If you’re wondering how HBH works, here is some useful information on its benefits and what to expect from HBH PRP.
What Is the HBH PRP Treatment?
The HBH PRP treatment is a procedure that uses plasma from the patient’s blood to stimulate healing and cell regeneration when injected into the treated area. These platelets contain proteins that rejuvenate the skin: platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF), transforming growth factor (TGF), platelet factor interleukin (IL), platelet-derived angiogenesis factor (PDAF), vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), epidermal growth factor (EGF), insulin-like growth factor (IGF) and fibronectin. PRP is used to treat skin all over the body, although the most popular treatments are for hair regrowth and signs of aging on the face and neck, like wrinkles and sagging skin. Other areas being treated with PRP include arms, knees, thighs, and stomach, and it is also very effective for acne scars.
If you’re wondering what the benefits are of HBH PRP, there are many. Since it uses the body’s own physiological product, there is no risk of the patient’s body rejecting the treatment or reacting negatively to it. The procedure is natural and safe, eliminating any possibility of infections or allergic reactions. The results of tighter, glowing skin are long-term, and as the body heals, the rejuvenating process begins. Aside from the initial discomfort of the micro-needling gun, the procedure is not designed to cause any significant pain. Another benefit of this treatment is that it also works as a treatment for hair loss.
How Does the Procedure Work?
The HBB PRP procedure is fairly straightforward. First, a medical professional will withdraw some of the patient’s blood as if they were having a routine blood test. The blood is sealed in the tube and spun in a centrifuge, which separates the PRP from the blood. This PRP is extracted from the tube and prepared using a sterile apparatus that concentrates the platelets up to six times the normal value. The incredible benefit of HBH is the flexibility regarding the concentration levels, which goes from 0.9 over baseline (almost double the normal values, up to six times over baseline). Any particles that would interfere with tissue regeneration are removed to ensure the PRP is as pure and potent as possible.
Once the PRP solution is ready, the PRP is then injected into the area. Since the needle on the Mesotherapy gun is so fine, the procedure is virtually painless and no local anesthesia is required.
After the procedure, the patient can return immediately to their normal activities. One tip our specialist recommend is to avoid washing the area for at least four hours although waiting until the next morning is highly advisable to allow the healing to begin. During the first few days, the patient may experience a slight discomfort or minor bruising and swelling—this is completely normal and will disappear after two days. The patient will notice results over the course of the 12 weeks following the first procedure; however, it may take three to four sessions for optimal results to show.

Pros of Harvest PRP

- Option to do 30cc or 60cc to easily double the quantity, obtaining about 5 ml (from 30cc) or 10 ml (from 60cc) of concentrated plasma
- Harvest is the recommended system to treat alopecia or hair loss
- Harvest “Clear” is recommended for the face. (Harvest is too strong, so it requires an additional step called “Clear” to use the treatment on the face).
When considering the best treatment option for you, it is important to know that the higher the platelet concentration, the better the results will be.
