What is PRP therapy and where can I get PRP in Boston?

Platelet-rich plasma, or PRP, therapy has many cosmetic applications, including the treatment of hair loss, acne scarring, surgical scarring, stretch marks, fine wrinkles and pigmentation. PRP therapy uses a preparation of your body’s own platelets and regenerative growth factors in concentrated blood plasma to stimulate skin rejuvenation and healing. PRP treatment also stimulates the body to produce more collagen, helping to plump up the skin, increasing volume and minimising the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

To obtain PRP, your doctor will take a small sample of your blood from your arm, just as they would during a routine blood test. This blood sample is then spun down in a centrifuge to separate the platelets and other healing factors from your red blood cells. The concentrated PRP solution is then injected directly into your targeted treatment area.

So, now that you know a little bit more about what PRP therapy is, where can you go to get PRP injections in Boston?

It is important that you choose a reputable medical spa for your PRP treatment, which is staffed with highly qualified and experienced board-certified doctors. Doctors at a top medical spa in Boston, such as Evolution MedSpa will be highly skilled at providing patients with PRP to treat a number of cosmetic issues. When choosing a medical spa for your PRP in Boston, be sure to read through reviews and testimonials from previous patients to get a good idea about the quality of the clinic. You should also ask to see the MedSpas portfolio of before and after pictures to get a better idea of the quality of results that you can expect to achieve.

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy can be used to stimulate the body’s own healing process, improve the skin’s texture and even to regrow your hair. In this article, experts from Boston’s best Medical Spa discuss where to get PRP in Boston.

How can PRP be used with microneedling in Boston?

PRP can be used in combination with microneedling in Boston, in a procedure known as a ‘vampire facial’. During this procedure, your doctor will roll a microneedling tool, consisting of fine needles, over your skin to create tiny puncture wounds. He or she will then apply the PRP solution over the skin to stimulate healing and collagen production. Boston microneedling and PRP treatment are more effective when used together, amplifying their benefits and reducing healing time.

Most MedSpas will offer an attractive deal when combining microneedling and PRP treatment, so it is definitely worth considering 

Hair restoration therapy: Does platelet-rich plasma therapy work for hair loss?

Hair loss can significantly lower your confidence, causing feelings of insecurity and affecting our mental health. Hair loss may be a natural result of aging or occur as a result of conditions, such as alopecia, anemia or hypothyroidism.

When injected into areas of the scalp, PRP activates previously dormant stem cells within your hair root. PRP therapy for hair loss stimulates new hair growth and strengthens and thickens your existing hair. 

Platelet-rich plasma therapy for hair loss has been shown to have a high success rate, providing patients with excellent results. Platelet-rich plasma for hair loss can help to treat both male and female pattern baldness and slow or stop the progression of hair loss.

If you are considering ‘PRP for hair restoration’, or ‘PRP for women’s hair loss’ make sure that you choose a board-certified doctor who has experience in using this innovative treatment for hair loss. 

Where can I find a hair loss dermatologist in Boston?

If hair loss is quashing your confidence and self-esteem, then you are probably searching to find a dermatologist who will provide PRP therapy for hair loss in Boston. If you have carried out a quick search online for a “hair loss center in Boston”, then you have probably been overwhelmed with options. So, how do you choose the best clinic to provide platelet rich plasma therapy for hair growth in Boston? 

It is important that you seek treatment from a provider who has experience of using PRP therapy for hair loss specifically as the techniques required differ from those used to treat other areas of the body. At Evolution MedSpa Boston, our highly skilled, board-certified doctors, Dr. Eric Cappiello and Dr. Mariam Cappiello, have extensive experience injecting PRP into the scalp and have achieved fantastic results for their many happy patients. 

What should I expect after PRP treatment?

While PRP therapy can be highly effective, it does take some time to achieve your optimal results. Therefore, it is important to have realistic expectations of what to expect after PRP treatment.

Your PRP treatment session will typically take between 60 and 90 minutes, depending upon the amount of injections that you require. Your procedure will also take a little longer if you are combining it with microneedling.

After your treatment, you may notice some localised redness or bruising at the injection site, but this should resolve quickly. PRP is not considered to cause any adverse effects as it uses a natural solution, taken from your own body.

Your PRP results should appear gradually over the next few months, with most patients reporting visible results by about 3 months. Most patients require 2-3 PRP sessions to see maximum results, spaced at 4-6 week intervals. With PRP treatment, patience is essential – it takes time to regenerate cells and grow new ones! While the results of PRP therapy are long-lasting, you will need maintenance sessions every 12 months.
