Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a form of regenerative medical treatment that harnesses the body’s natural healing capabilities. Derived from a patient’s own blood, PRP is a concentrated solution of platelets, which are essential for tissue repair and regeneration. The process involves drawing a small volume of blood, which is then spun in a centrifuge to separate and concentrate the platelets. The PRP is then re-injected into the targeted area, stimulating cellular growth, collagen production, enhances skin elasticity, and accelerates the body’s natural healing process, leading to rejuvenated and younger-looking skin.

In addition to skin rejuvenation, PRP is also used to treat hair loss. The growth factors in PRP stimulate the hair follicles, promoting fuller and healthier hair growth. When injected into the scalp, PRP rejuvenates miniaturized hair follicles, which are often responsible for thinning hair and balding patterns. This procedure not only increases hair thickness but also improves the overall health and vitality of the scalp. For individuals grappling with hair thinning or loss, PRP offers a natural approach to restoring hair density without the need for invasive surgical procedures.

At RAAC, we also offer specific PRP treatment to address sexual health concerns for both men and women. Read more on P-Shot (Priapus Shot), O-Shot (Orgasm Shot).

PRP stands for Platelet-Rich Plasma, a component of blood that contains a high concentration of growth factors beneficial for tissue repair and regeneration.

A small amount of the patient’s blood is drawn and processed to concentrate the platelets. The PRP is then injected into the target areas to promote healing and rejuvenation.

Most patients experience minimal discomfort. A topical anesthetic can be applied prior to the procedure to reduce any potential pain.

The entire process, from drawing blood to completing the injections, typically takes about 30 to 60 minutes.

The number of PRP sessions required for optimal results varies depending on the individual’s goals, the condition being treated, and the severity of the issue. On average:

For skin rejuvenation and addressing signs of aging, most patients benefit from an initial series of 3 to 4 sessions spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart. After the initial series, maintenance sessions can be done every 6 to 12 months.

For hair loss, it’s common to recommend an initial series of 4 to 6 sessions spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart.

Maintenance treatments might be needed 2 to 3 times a year to sustain results.

Initial improvement can be seen within a few weeks, with maximum results visible after 3 to 6 months.
