What is PRP?

PRP, also known as platelet-rich plasma, is an anti-aging procedure offered at Favia MediSpa. The treatment stimulates new cell generation and hair regrowth. PRP uses platelets which are separated from your own blood and then injected into your scalp to give you a fuller head of hair without surgery.

What are the benefits of PRP?

The main benefits of PRP for hair restoration include:

  • Natural-looking hair regrowth
  • Fuller head of hair
  • Younger-looking appearance
  • Healthier hair
  • No surgery
  • No downtime

PRP is an all-natural treatment for thinning hair due to aging. It can give you dramatic anti-aging results after just a few treatment sessions.

Is PRP treatment right for me?

To find out if you’re a candidate for PRP at Favia MediSpa, your medispa specialist discusses your medical history, asks about your desired outcome, and examines your hair and scalp. 

They let you know what to expect during the procedure and tailor a hair restoration treatment plan that’s best for you.

What happens during PRP treatment?

During PRP treatment at Favia MediSpa, your specialist takes a sample of blood from a vein in your arm. They place the sample in a centrifuge and spin it to isolate the platelet rich plasma (PRP) from the rest of the blood.

Your provider then injects the PRP right beneath the skin at targeted spots in your scalp. The procedure is simple and fast.  Once the PRP is ready to be injected, the actual treatment takes about 10 minutes. 

What should I expect after my treatment?

Because there’s no downtime associated with PRP treatment, you can resume a normal routine immediately afterward. You may notice some redness, swelling, or tenderness at the injection sites, but these side effects are temporary.

Favia MediSpa recommends a series of four PRP treatments at 4-6 week intervals for hair restoration. This regime allows for clients to see the most benefit from the procedure. Over the next few weeks and months, you can expect thicker, younger-looking, healthier hair.
