What is PRP Therapy?

West Houston, TX board-certified dermatologist Dr. Catherine Papasakelariou is excited to offer platelet-rich plasma therapy, also called PRP, at Houston Premier Dermatology to help rejuvenate your facial appearance and stimulate the growth of new hair. PRP therapy is one of the most sought-after cosmetic procedures in the aesthetic industry due to its natural method and exciting results. The procedure utilizes a patient's very own plasma to stimulate the skin to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It can also be used to stimulate hair follicles to help your thinning hair return to a fuller state. If you are interested in PRP therapy, contact Houston Premier Dermatology in West Houston, TX to schedule a private consultation. Dr. Papasakelariou is always excited to discuss all the benefits of PRP and how it can help to improve your appearance.

Who is an Ideal Candidate?

Those who would like to improve the texture and tone of their complexion or treat thinning hair are typically ideal candidates for PRP therapy. Since it naturally promotes collagen production, it is also a great treatment choice for rejuvenating dull-colored skin. Speak with Dr. Papasakelariou if you have any skin conditions, blood disorders, or anemia to decide if it's safe for you.

What is our Platelet-Rich Plasma Technique?

Once you are comfortably seated in one of our secluded treatment rooms, a bit of blood will be pulled from your arm and placed in a centrifuge machine. In most cases, we obtain around one vial worth of blood. After approximately 15 minutes on the centrifuge machine, the different components of the blood will be separated and ready for injection. We will place your concentrated plasma into a sterile syringe and inject it into the treatment areas. The procedure typically only takes about five minutes, but that can vary on a patient-to-patient basis.

What to Expect After PRP Therapy

Platelet-rich plasma naturally promotes collagen production and elastin to reveal tauter, more youthful-appearing skin. For the scalp, PRP helps to naturally stimulate the hair follicles to support them as they improve the quality of hair growth. As it uses your own blood, the risk of adverse or allergic reactions is very low. You can expect the treatment area to be slightly red and tender following the procedure as traces of red blood cells can make it into the plasma injection. A cold pack can be used on the treatment site to minimize discomfort or minor swelling. We recommend you undergo treatments every 4 – 6 weeks for optimal results.
