What is PRP Treatment?

PRP is a current regenerative therapy that uses a patient’s platelets (blood cells) to aid the healing of injured tissues and organs, with applications in skin repair, hair regrowth, and more.

PRP, also known as self-regulating plasma, is a concentration of platelet-rich plasma extracted from whole blood and centrifuged to separate plasma from red blood cells.

The biotech-enriched new platelets are injected into damaged ligaments, joints and tendons to accelerate tissue repair. This helps promote hair regrowth, stop hair loss, and reduce facial rejuvenation and scar correction.

PRP was created more than 20 years ago and was initially used in periodontal therapy, orthopedics, and sports medicine. However, in recent years, it has become more and more popular in the usage of dermatology. Hair and skin companies have seen the benefits of using PRP for wound healing, acne scars, skin rejuvenation, fat grafting and hair regrowth.

The blood is composed of 93% red blood cells in a regular blood sample, while the rest contains 6% platelets and 1% white blood cells. When blood is centrifuged, many red blood cells are removed, leaving about 94% platelets and 6% red blood cells in platelet-rich plasma (PRP). 

These high levels of growth factors and cytokines aid in tissue rejuvenation and healing. A platelet concentration of about 1 million platelets/μl, nearly five times the average platelet concentration, exhibits wound healing and tissue repair effects.

Platelets have a large store of more than 800 proteins, and when they are secreted, they act on many targets, such as stem cells. Other essential components of PRP include fibrinogen and leukocytes. The benefits of PRP can be obtained from platelets and a combination of growth factors and components.

PRP Treatment For Hair Loss

Numerous studies have shown that using PRP treatment for androgenetic alopecia is helpful. The procedure involves Injecting PRP into the scalp using a micro-needling device. Growth factors in PRP involve supporting hair follicles and maintaining the anagen or active phase of the hair cycle. 

Mean hair density, hair diameter, and terminal/vellus ratio were indicators that showed statistically significant improvement, and the majority of patients were satisfied with the clinical outcome.  LEARN MORE ABOUT PRP TREATMENT FOR HAIR LOSS

PRP Therapy for Vampire Facial

PRP treatment in dermatology has grown significantly in recent years due to its beneficial effects on wrinkles and fine lines, surgical scars, skin tears, stretch marks, and acne scars. Thanks to Kim Kardashian, the regeneration of PRP facial cells has become very popular in recent years. 

In 2013, the term “vampire facial” became a trending topic on Instagram, having Kim Kardashian take a photo with a bloody face, then her followers asked, “What is this weird new skincare product?” 

The idea of a treatment that could make a person’s appearance look younger and disappear after years of aging quickly became popular. Today, PRP is one of the most popular skin rejuvenation treatments.  

PRP therapy is also effective in treating acne scars, surgical scars, hyperpigmentation issues, and uneven skin tone, besides skin rejuvenation.

How long will PRP injections last?

PRP lasts anywhere from six to nine months, which will continue to aid in healing the soft-tissue injury.

Is PRP covered in Ontario?

How Much Does PRP Injection Therapy Cost? PRP is not covered by OHIP. An injection of PRP is $950-1200, depending on the injection site and whether ultrasound is necessary during the procedure. At Laser Skin Clinic, our PRP cost ranges between $397-$597, depending on your package. We do PRP mainly for hair loss and skin rejuvenation treatments.

What are the risks of PRP?

Because PRP is derived from your blood (“autologous” transplantation), there is no chance of having an allergy or immune reaction. Indeed in the literature, side effects or complications of PRP injection are extremely rare. The main risks include local infection (< 1% chance) and pain at the injection site.

Is PRP worth the money?

Although it is not as effective as hair transplants, and you can combine treatments like Propecia and Rogaine, PRP is an effective treatment for androgenic alopecia. This goes for both, whether male-pattern hair loss or female-pattern hair loss.

Is 1 PRP session enough?

We recommend that to enhance the success rate of the PRP treatment, patients should undergo about three to six distinctive sessions, each positioned every month. After this, patients should undergo a single effective therapy every 3-6 months to sustain the therapy effects for longer.

The O-Shot® procedure begins with a simple blood draw from the arm. This sample is put into a special centrifuge to produce the Platelet-Rich Plasma. Once the PRP is extracted from the blood, it is injected into the numbed area near the clitoris and upper vagina.  LEARN MORE ABOUT THE O-SHOT
