What is PRP Therapy?

Platelet-Rich Plasma, also known as PRP, is a popular treatment used for cellular regeneration and restoration. PRP contains many natural growth factors that the body uses during the healing process. At Alford Facial Plastic Surgery in Houston, TX, PRP can be used in a variety of non-surgical procedures to promote skin rejuvenation and hair restoration for both men and women.

What Areas Can Be Treated with PRP Treatment?

At Alford Facial Plastic Surgery, PRP is often used to treat thinning hair as well as an active ingredient in an Aquagold Facial, also known as a “Botox Facial”. In other cases, it can be applied topically after a laser or facial procedure to help facilitate healing and reduce downtime.

Common areas to treat include, but are not limited to, the:

  • Scalp
  • Brows
  • Face
  • Neck
  • Chest

Benefits of PRP Treatment

PRP therapy has become very popular among medical and aesthetic industries due to its impressive results using a patient's own tissue.

Benefits of PRP:

  • Little to no downtime facial treatment
  • PRP is platelets from your own blood – not a foreign substance
  • Boosts natural collagen production and cellular regeneration
  • Improves skin tone, texture, hyperpigmentation, scars, acne and pore size
  • Restores volume and reduces fine lines & wrinkles
  • Stimulates new hair growth in dormant areas
  • Can be used in conjunction with other spa treatments and fillers such as Aquagold Facial

Who Is A Candidate for PRP Treatment?

People who are interested in rejuvenating the elasticity, feel, and condition of their complexion may be ideal patients for PRP treatment at Alford Facial Plastic Surgery. Platelet-rich plasma stimulates elastin and collagen production, which will help scale down the existence of fine lines and wrinkles, lax skin, scars, acne, redness, large pores, alopecia, and additional cosmetic insecurities. At your appointment, Dr. Alford will review your health records and concerns to decide if platelet-rich plasma therapy is a suitable treatment for you.

How Does the PRP Treatment Work?

PRP treatments are performed in the comfort of our office located in the Texas Medical Center. After a small amount of blood is collected from you, we place it inside a centrifuge where it will be spun for approximately 10 – 15 minutes allowing the blood to be separated into 3 different layers:

  1. Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)
  2. Platelet-Poor Plasma
  3. Red Blood Cells

PRP, known as “liquid gold,” due to the natural healing properties and gold translucent color, will be extracted into a syringe for Dr. Alford to use on the identified treatment area. The procedure takes approximately 30 – 45 minutes to complete depending on the area being treated. To schedule your PRP Treatment today, call our office in Houston, TX!

What Can I Expect Following PRP Treatment?

Someone from our Houston, TX team will explain at-home care information, as well as what to anticipate as you heal after your PRP procedure. It is natural to detect trace amounts of blood on the skin and to see effects like redness and tenderness, which can be eased with ice on the treatment areas. Seeing that PRP treatment makes use of your blood, there is barely any uncertainty of allergic or negative reaction, offering a reliable treatment for skin revitalization. Many patients begin to notice improvements in their skin about one week after their session and softer, more radiant skin after approximately 1 – 2 months.

PRP Treatment FAQ

How many PRP treatments will I need?
At our office in Houston, TX, we evaluate every platelet-rich plasma procedure according to our patients' specific needs, skin irregularities, and desires. Dr. Alford might recommend platelet-rich plasma treatment every 1 – 2 months, depending on your unique skin needs. At your initial appointment, we will generate a distinctive treatment plan for you and review the number of sessions you may require to achieve your desired results.

How long do PRP treatment results last?
The results of platelet-rich plasma treatments are usually prominent after about four weeks, as the body’s innate healing process works to restore the skin. With suitable care, the results of platelet-rich plasma therapy could be seen for around a year and a half. Style of living, including diet, skin care practices, smoking, and alcohol consumption, might alter the length of your outcomes. Dr. Alford wants to help tailor a custom plan to help you preserve your cosmetic outcomes.

Is PRP therapy uncomfortable?
Platelet-rich plasma therapy is a minimally invasive approach to rejuvenating the skin. Our team ensures that our clients are at ease. Though some patients find PRP treatments to inflict minor soreness, we offer a topical numbing agent to help make sure your treatment is as pleasant as possible.
