Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) for Facial Rejuvenation and Hair Loss
Dermatology Group of Carolinas utilizes the revolutionary Eclipse PRP system for platelet-rich plasma treatments. Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is a high concentration of platelets that is prepared from a small amount of your own blood.
The platelets in PRP are rich in growth factors, which send signals to cells and tells them to function. When used for hair loss, the growth factors in these platelets help to stimulate activity of the hair follicles and promote new hair growth. When used for injection into the face, the growth factors help to stimulate rapid cell replenishment and rejuvenation of healthy cells by promoting collagen and elastin production.
PRP for Facial Rejuvenation and PRP for Hair Loss are simple, in-office procedures that start with drawing a small amount of blood, which is then placed into the Eclipse® centrifuge that spins the blood at a very rapid rate to separate the platelets from the other components of the blood. The resulting product is the platelet-rich plasma, or PRP. Then, depending on the procedure, the PRP is either injected into targeted areas of the face, or into the scalp at the level of your hair follicles.
