PRP, or platelet rich plasma, has been getting a lot of attention recently in the plastic surgery and dermatology worlds. Baltimore PRP specialists use this treatment to help with:
PRP is created by taking a small amount of blood from a patient, isolated the part of the blood plasma with numerous amounts of platelets, and then using this substance for aesthetic purposes. It is thought that platelets release a growth factor that can help when it comes to hair growth and facial aesthetics. The process takes about an hour with typically only a few hours of recovery and minimal discomfort.
For facial rejuvenation, PRP has been known as the vampire facial treatment. The purpose is to improve the recovery after microneedling and to help promote collagen growth. Dr. Schreiber has seen some remarkable results with this treatment in his office.
When it comes to restoring hair, nothing is better than an actual hair transplant at this point. However, PRP has been shown is several studies to improve the look of the hair and hairline in men and women with thinning hair and some hair loss. Patients with advanced hair loss can actually benefit from both, a hair transplant combined with PRP injections.
Fat grafting is very useful for facial contouring and breast aesthetics. When combined with PRP, the fat has been shown to have better overall results.
Lastly, laser therapy like IPL and CO2 can help to improve the fine lines and wrinkles of the face. The recovery can involve several days to weeks of redness and bruising, but with the addition of PRP to the skin after the treatment this recovery can be significantly reduced.
