PRP Therapy in McAllen, TX
What is PRP Therapy?
Platelet-rich plasma, known as PRP, is a substance that is part of the blood. The plasma contains a high concentration of proteins that promote cell development and growth. PRP has been used in the medical field for patients who suffer injuries as a mechanism for enhancing the healing process and shortening downtime and recovery. In the cosmetic field, the benefits of PRP therapy are used to stimulate cell development in the skin to complement other treatments.
What Are the Benefits of PRP Therapy?
- Speeds healing
- Reduces downtime
- Improves treatment outcomes
- Used in combination with a variety of treatments
Who is a Good Candidate for PRP Therapy?
Because PRP is derived from your own blood, it is a great option for most patients. Dr. Ayala may recommend PRP therapy to complement your medical spa treatments when appropriate.
What is the Procedure for PRP Therapy?
PRP therapy is secondary to your primary treatment. A small amount of your blood is drawn and processed to separate the PRP from other blood components. The PRP is loaded into a syringe and injected into the treatment area.
The introduction of PRP into the skin is clinically proven to stimulate the development of new skin cells to help with skin damage that may cause wrinkles and other concerns.
What is Recovery Like After PRP Therapy?
PRP therapy requires no specific downtime or recovery. It may reduce the downtime and recovery from the primary treatment compared to the same treatment without PRP therapy.
PRP Therapy for Hair Loss
Although there's no definitive research confirming PRP therapy is effective for hair loss, many patients experience positive results when PRP is injected into areas of the scalp that have lost hair. Treatment typically includes scalp injections every 4 to 6 weeks, followed by maintenance treatments every 4 to 6 months afterward. Results from PRP therapy for hair loss can include new growth and the restoration of hair to areas of the scalp where treatment is completed.
