PRP IN VANCOUVER, WA & PORTLAND, OR

A Healing System

your body's natural healing system

Did you know that you can use the resources in your own body to help rejuvenate your skin and/or your hair? Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is a therapeutic, non-surgical procedure that uses your own healing system for facial treatment or hair loss therapy. PRP plays an important role in your body's natural healing process that helps to repair facial issues and heal injured areas of your body like joints and muscles. PRP can be known as a vampire facial when it comes to the treatment of facial rejuvenation and getting a smoother and tighter appearance. It can also be used as hair loss therapy in men and women. In fact, PRP is used by several professional athletes, including Tiger Woods, who have benefited from PRP therapy. And there is no risk of rejection since PRP is drawn your own blood. Why not get one of the best PRP in Vancouver at The Workman Center For Beautiful Skin & Bodies?

What Is PRP?

effective with many different facial issues

Plasma is composed mostly of water and proteins and is the intermediate for red and white blood cells and platelets to circulate through your body while platelets are blood cells that can activate your body's natural healing process. The plasma is enhanced through an activation process that releases growth factors and then injected into a specific area where those factors trigger stem cells into the production of collagen and repairing tissues or stimulate growth in hair follicles. There are four types of PRP: pure PRP (low white blood count, anti-coagulated liquid), leukocyte-rich PCP (high white blood count, anti-coagulated liquid), pure platelet-rich fibrin (low white blood count, coagulated fibrin matrix), and leukocyte-rich PRF (high white blood count, coagulated fibrin matrix).

Platelet-rich plasma can be effective with many facial issues as well as hair therapy and common injuries. From a facial treatment point of view, PRP can treat acne or traumatic scars, fine lines and wrinkles, hair loss, hyperpigmentation, rough skin texture, and stretch marks. PRP can also address hair loss and promote the growth of hair. It may be possible for PRP to also help with the treatment of some conditions like knee osteoarthritis or tennis elbow or injuries like ligament tears or joint sprains.

The procedure of Platelet Rich Plasma

cellular treatments that trigger skin repair

The platelet-rich plasma application procedure takes between 30 and 60 minutes depending on the specifics of the procedure. A numbing agent can be applied to your face to help with discomfort. PRP can reverse skin damage in a holistic way by using and boosting your body’s active growth factors. A blood sample from you is harvested in our laboratory with the resulting serum applied to your skin in a concentrated dose through micropores or directly injected deeper in your skin to stimulate your body’s own stem cells. PRP treatments are cellular renewals that help to decrease the inflammatory processes of your skin and trigger skin repair.
