What Makes PRP So Effective?

Posted By: Lic. Silvia Derasner | February 26th, 2020 | Blog

If you’re looking for a way to restore hair loss caused by pattern baldness or if you want to rejuvenate the appearance and health of your skin, the platelet-rich-plasma (PRP) treatment is the solution for you. What makes PRP so effective? How is PRP effective for hair rejuvenation? Here’s all you need to know about this groundbreaking, non-invasive treatment.


PRP for Your Skin or Hair

How Does PRP Work?


The PRP procedure works by withdrawing some of the patient’s blood, similarly as one would have done during a routine blood test. The extracted blood is spun in a centrifuge and as the plasma separates, it is removed from the rest of the blood. The plasma is specially prepared using a sterile medical apparatus that concentrates the platelets at different levels compared to the normal blood values. Then, after eliminating any particles that hurt tissue regeneration, the formula is ready. Finally, the concentrated PRP solution is injected.


The treatment essentially nudges your skin or hair follicles to start over. The platelets send growth factors to the sites to signal your skin or scalp cells to remodel. As a result, new, fresh skin or stronger hair grows in the place of the inactive cells. For people who suffer from thinning hair, acne scars, bumpy skin, and other imperfections, they can get better hair coverage and beautifully renewed, smoother, toned, and firmer skin complexion.


It will take a few months before optimal results appear, and you will be happy that you made the decision to prolong the youth of your skin or hair.


Why Is PRP Beneficial?


Gradual Results


Is PRP really effective? Definitely! Unlike invasive surgery or injections like Botox, the PRP treatment produces gradual and natural results. It is ideal for people who want gradual improvements in their skin or hair regrowth, to draw less attention to themselves. The PRP treatment uses the body’s own platelets to strengthen existing hair, growing new hair, restore a youthful appearance, tighten skin, and create a clearer complexion.


Safe and Natural


The PRP treatment is completely natural. It does not include any additives or chemicals and there are no synthetic elements. Each treatment is created from each patient’s own blood, so there is no risk of allergic reaction or infection due to treatment rejection.


Long-Lasting Results


It may take a few treatments to get optimal results, but the PRP treatment is designed to last a long time. This is because the plasma stimulates the stem cells to make more collagen, create new cells, and renew the scalp and skin. As a result, you will notice better hair coverage, glowing, firmer, toned, clearer skin, with a reduction in the appearance of wrinkles.




The PRP treatment is non-surgical, which means there is no to very little downtime. The treatments can be performed every few months to maintain results, and it is mild enough that you can get right back to business after your session.


What Is PRP Useful For?


Face Lift


The PRP treatment is very effective and commonly used as a non-invasive facelift. Since it stimulates collagen and elastin that the body naturally produces, patients notice a significant lift on their face that looks natural and toned.


Hair Growth


These simple PRP injections can also be applied to the scalp for hair rejuvenation and restoration. For those who suffer from early hair loss and want to get fuller, thicker hair, the PRP treatment can help. It promotes hair growth by stimulating the growth factors in the cells on the scalp.


Who Is a Good Candidate for the PRP Treatment?


If you are suffering from hair loss, you may be a good candidate for this treatment. However, this only applies if you are in the early stages. If your hair loss has occurred for several years, it may be more difficult for the treatment to restore the growth factors of your hair follicles.


It is also important to note that patients who are in general good health, non-smoking, and who have realistic expectations are the best candidates for the PRP treatment. Since the procedure is not transplanting hair to the site and encourages the skin’s natural growth factors, there is no guarantee it will work for everyone or produce the level of results you expect.


Additionally, good candidates for the PRP treatment for skin improvement are those that have noticed early signs of aging. Before this time, the treatment will not be very effective, and it may not be as effective on seniors.


PRP is not recommended for:


  • Pregnant women
  • People using non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAID) or other medications that thin or coagulate the blood
  • People with major illnesses such as cancer, blood-borne diseases, current infections, cerebral palsy, or Parkinson’s disease
  • People who have been told by their medical advisor not to undergo this procedure
