Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) has been used for many years to facilitate wound healing and has also played an important role in orthopedics, plastic surgery, and dentistry. It is frequently used to expedite the healing of sports injuries. In recent years, PRP has been used to treat hair loss and has come to be recognized for its ability to improve skin quality.  

PRP is a concentrate of blood, enriched in cells called platelets which have an important role in the blood clotting process. Platelets contain a number of natural growth factors. Once introduced into the skin the platelets release their growth factors which stimulate the production of collagen and enhance the blood supply to the treated area.

The Rosenthal Clinic uses the Harvest SmartPrep system since the PRP produced is of the highest quality and with the optimal concentration of platelets for tissue regeneration and stimulation of hair growth.

PRP treatments are safe, natural and usually very well tolerated.

 

PRP for Hair Loss

Both men and women suffering from thinning hair to pattern baldness may benefit from treatment with PRP.  PRP contains many growth factors that stimulate the development of new hair follicles and improve the health of existing ones. We recommend doing 3-4 treatments, one month apart, with maintenance treatments semi-annually to prolong and maintain results. The earlier these treatments are started the better the outcome in terms of slowing the hair loss and stimulation of healthy hair growth.  

Annual PRP treatments are also recommended as a maintenance treatment after hair transplantation.

PRP for skin rejuvenation

PRP has been used for facial rejuvenation throughout the world since 2006. It is especially valuable for treating fine lines around the eyes. We prefer to add PRP when treating the skin with microneedling, fractional laser or radiofrequency as it enhances the results. Similarly, PRP can effectively improve outcomes when used in combination with other treatments such as mesotherapy. It can also be combined with filler injections.

Conditions

Large Pores

Decreased elasticity is the main cause of enlarged pores. To help control oils and encourage the pores to stay clean, we recommend using BHA (Salicylic Acid). We also recommend a custom daily skin care regime. This could include retinoids, antioxidants and growth factors to keep the skin tight and...

Stretch Marks

In areas of stress on the tissues, breakdown of the skin’s collagen and elastin result in stretch marks. For example, during periods of rapid growth or weight gain. Stretch marks commonly appear on the buttocks and upper thighs of adolescent girls, over the breasts and abdomen in pregnancy, and over...

Acne scarring

Acne scarring is the result of inadequate treatment of active acne. Eventually, it tends to become more noticeable as our skin ages.
Consequently, acne scarring can appear in the form of skin discoloration, deep pits(ice-pick scars), rolling scars, broader depressions, and thin flat or lumpy scars.

Wrinkles and Fine Lines

Wrinkles, fine lines, and skin folds are a result of changes in the skin that develop naturally with time but are significantly accelerated by sun exposure and cigarettes. The skin becomes thinner and drier from the effect of the loss of collagen, elasticity and moisture retaining proteins. Changes in the...

Hands

Turn back the "hands of time". Unless you wear gloves at all times, your hands will show the telltale signs of aging.  Age related changes to the hands include brown spots, dehydration, thinned and sun damaged skin, as well as the loss of fat - making bones, tendons, and veins...

Dry or Rough Skin

The appearance of dry or rough skin is due to the irregular shedding of the cells of the upper part of the skin (epidermis).  As we age, dead cells tend to ‘clump up’ rather than being evenly shed. The skin looks dry and rough because it no longer reflects light...
