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

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!
