Platelet Rich-Plasma Therapy

Aloupis Dermatology offers a wide range of dermatological procedures including medical, surgical and cosmetic dermatology.

Treatments

Overview

At Aloupis Dermatology, our Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy (PRP) is used for various cosmetic enhancements, including the treatment of fine lines, wrinkles, discoloration, and “crepey” skin. PRP therapy activates the body’s own healing properties by utilizing plasma cells from the patient’s blood to treat the effects of aging. 

 

Under the direction of Dr. Aloupis, PRP therapy can be applied topically or injected into the skin to naturally smooth and tighten it. The procedure is highly popular amongst our patients due to its ability to accelerate the healing process and boost collagen production. Dr. Aloupis also injects PRP directly into the scalp for hair loss. Patients with certain types of hair loss see dramatic results with significant hair growth.

Frequently Asked Questions

 

Who is PRP for?

At Aloupis Dermatology, our specialized PRP therapy is ideal for patients looking to naturally reverse the most noticeable signs of aging skin. It can also be utilized for hair growth when injected into the scalp.

What is the treatment process like?

PRP therapy is a simple procedure. During each treatment session, a small sample of your blood is drawn, and the platelets are then separated. If you are utilizing PRP for hair re-growth on the scalp, the platelets are injected directly to that area. For microneedling, the platelets are applied to the skin before the treatment begins. The PRP treatments are virtually painless, whether we are treating the skin or utilizing for hair regrowth on the scalp.

How does PRP work?

PRP therapy utilizes the healing properties of your own blood platelets to stimulate natural growth factors. When the platelet-rich plasma is injected into the treatment area, the platelets begin working to produce collagen and elastin, ultimately revealing younger-looking skin and triggering growth in hair follicles and thickening of the hair shaft.

What are the treatment benefits of PRP? Both skin and hair loss?
Unlike many hair loss treatments and anti-aging therapies, PRP is a natural alternative that does not require the use of synthetic ingredients. It is safe and commonly used by physicians to treat healing of tendon, ligament and muscle injuries. Dr. Aloupis utilizes this similar protocol to improve the skin and or/stimulate hair regrowth.  For skin rejuvenation, PRP provides a natural way to remedy fine lines and wrinkles in the face with minimal discomfort or downtime. It is commonly used to expedite the post-procedure healing process. For hair loss, PRP therapy is a revolutionary treatment that regenerates hair growth. Proteins and growth factors in the plasma help increase circulation to the hair follicles, stimulating growth, thickening hair and reversing receding hairlines. PRP treatments require little to no downtime and cause minimal discomfort.
Do I need to fast?

It is not necessary to fast in preparation for your treatment.

How long does the treatment take?

Each procedure can typically take between 15 to 30 minutes depending on the treatment area.

What are the benefits of combining PRP and microneedling?

By combining PRP therapy with microneedling, you’ll enjoy more visible results in less time. Injecting the platelet-rich plasma into the skin during the microneedling process will boost the production of collagen and elastin to quickly repair the skin.

When can I expect results when using PRP for hair loss?

While results vary by patient, after an initial round of treatments, you can expect to see anticipated results in a timeframe of about two to three months.
