Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
PRP, also known as Platelet-Rich Plasma, is human blood that is spun down and separated producing a concentration of platelets above normal values. Platelets are the clotting cells of our blood, but they also have great potential in enhancing healing of muscle, tendon, and ligament. Growth factors released by platelets recruit reparative cells augment tissue repair, and accelerate soft tissue healing.
At TTMSpa & Markham Med Spa we Perform PRP therapy as a proactive therapeutic option for male and female patients experiencing hair loss. PRP is an exciting non-surgical therapeutic options for patients who require stimulation of hair growth for hair loss conditions such as balding. Doctors use a PRP serum that they formulate from the blood of every individual patient. They inject this serum into the scalp so that the hair grows back thicker and stronger with a better shine, luster, and richer coloring. The PRP serum contains a concentration of growth factors, mesenchymal stem cell, cytokines, and other elements.
At TTMSpa & Markham Med Spa we also excel in PRP facial rejuvenation, also called Vampire Facials and Dracula Therapy. PRP Facial treatments are relied on to rejuvenate their skin and erase signs of aging like lines, wrinkles, creases, and folds of skin. PRP therapy has the effect of restoring the layer of collagen and elastin under the skin so that it is more effective in supporting suppleness.
Our medical estheticians may choose to administer the PRP injection into the lines and problem areas. Alternatively, they may combine the treatment with microneedling. By using a micropen, they create minute pores and massage the PRP serum into the skin so that it regains its youthful glow.
