Thinning hair, fine lines, wrinkles, and collagen loss are common hallmarks of aging, but there are treatments that can help you build confidence in your appearance and skin health. At Paviol Dermatology in Charlotte, North Carolina, the experienced dermatology team offers revolutionary platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatments to revitalize your skin and stimulate hair regrowth. Call the office to schedule an appointment or book one online today.
What is PRP?
PRP (platelet-rich plasma) consists of a concentrated source of platelets taken from your own blood. The platelets improve your body’s ability to generate new cells, which produces an array of anti-aging benefits for your skin and hair.
To obtain the PRP used for your microneedling session or hair rejuventation, your Paviol Dermatology team member takes a sample of blood. This blood is then spun in a centrifuge to separate the PRP from the other blood components.
What are the benefits of PRP?
Is PRP right for me?
Your Paviol Dermatology specialist reviews your medical history and desired results to determine if you’re a candidate for PRP. They examine your skin and hair and personalize an anti-aging treatment plan for you.
Which PRP treatments are available?
You might need more than one kind of PRP solution to maximize your results. Some of the PRP treatments available at Paviol Dermatology include:
During PRP hair restoration, your provider injects PRP into areas of your scalp that contain thinning hair. You might also use Nutrafol® hair-growth supplements.
Microneedling with PRP
During microneedling with PRP, your Paviol Dermatology provider uses tiny needles to puncture the skin. The PRP is "microneedled" into the skin to further stimulate collagen and elastin production.
PRP injections into targeted areas of your face are another PRP treatment available at Paviol Dermatology.
After PRP procedures at Paviol Dermatology, there’s minimal downtime depending on which PRP treatment you receive. That means you can resume your routine immediately. However, you might have some swelling, redness, or tenderness at the treatment site for a short time. You might need more than one treatment to achieve the best results.
Over time, as treated cells regenerate, you can expect revitalized skin, a fuller head of hair, and a younger-looking appearance.
