PRP Q & A

How does PRP work?

Your blood is full of platelets that have specialized growth factor proteins attached to them. These growth factors are capable of stimulating cell growth, promoting healing, and triggering tissue development.

When you have an injury, whether it’s a minor papercut or more severe trauma, blood rushes to the area, delivering a high concentration of growth factors with it. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatments harness this power by delivering platelets and thus growth factors to specific areas for optimal healing and tissue formation (including collagen).

The process of creating your signature PRP formulary at Passion Aesthetics NYC begins with a simple blood draw. Your blood is processed in a centrifuge, which separates platelets and growth factors, so they’re ready for injection when needed or applied topically for penetration with a microneedling tool.

What can PRP treat?

At Passion Aesthetics NYC, you can request PRP treatments to resolve just about any skin imperfection that bothers you under your eyes, around your chin and jawbone, and near your mouth (among other areas). PRP is effective for treating and minimizing the appearance of:

  • Injury, surgical, or acne scars
  • Uneven skin tone or texture
  • Lines and wrinkles
  • Smoker’s lines
  • Crepey skin
  • Sun damage
  • Dark spots
  • Crow’s feet
  • Skin laxity
  • Rosacea

You can even request PRP for all-natural hair restoration at Passion Aesthetics NYC. PRP promotes blood flow to your current hair follicles and stimulates the development of new hair follicles. Over time, you begin regrowing your own real hair.

When will I have results with PRP?

Since PRP treatments stimulate cellular functions and tissue formation, it takes time for you to experience optimal results. But rest assured, new tissues or even hairs are gradually developing. Depending on your specific PRP treatment plan at Passion Aesthetics NYC, it’s common to experience some redness, soreness, or swelling in the treatment area for one to three days.

You may begin noticing an improvement in your skin or hair within about four to eight weeks. For optimal results, your practitioner at Passion Aesthetics NYC could recommend a series of about two to four PRP treatments — four is common for PRP hair restoration — each spaced six to eight weeks apart to achieve optimal results.
