Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy (PRP) in Westchester County, NY

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy became part of the mainstream conversation when several A-list athletes began using it to treat their sports injuries. It did not take long for doctors and researchers to start exploring other potential benefits of PRP therapy, including making aesthetic improvements. At CSNY MediSpa, we offer this leading-edge procedure to patients seeking hair restoration or rejuvenated skin through microneedling.

How Does PRP Work?

While blood is primarily composed of liquid, it also includes tiny, solid bits: white cells, red cells and platelets. The platelets, which are abundant in proteins, aid in rejuvenating the skin and body.

In PRP therapy, our experts will draw your own blood and then start centrifugation. This process involves separating out the platelet rich plasma also known as “liquid gold.” Later, this highly active serum will be injected or infused into your own body so the platelets can do what they do best: stimulate cells and aid in the rejuvenation process.

PRP for Hair Loss

PRP Hair loss therapy in Westchester CountyPRP therapy has become a popular choice among patients who are losing their hair. This non-surgical procedure aims to not only prevent further hair loss, but also re-stimulate hair growth in areas where hair has fallen out. The idea is that the platelets activate cells in the (once) dormant follicle, so the hair starts to grow again.

The procedure is performed in under an hour. Best of all, you will be able to go to work, exercise and engage in other everyday activities immediately following your treatment. Most patients will need to return for multiple treatments, with several weeks separating each session. Usually, PRP therapy is combined with another hair restoration procedure to maximize the effects.

Not all hair loss patients will find PRP therapy useful in their pursuit to regrow hair. During a consultation, our experts will let you know if you are a good candidate.

Microneedling with PRP

PRP microneedling in Westchester CountyOn its own, microneedling is a popular procedure that uses tiny needles to stimulate collagen production beneath your skin. As the collagen increases, your skin becomes firmer, and unwanted flaws like wrinkles, acne, scars, stretch marks and sun damage start to vanish. While it is most commonly performed on the face, microneedling is a technique that can be used on most parts of the body.

More recently, some patients opt to include PRP therapy along with microneedling. PRP is believed to not only enhance the results of microneedling, but also achieve these results more quickly. Rather than injecting the PRP directly into your body, our expert team will rub the platelet-rich plasma into the treated area following your microneedling treatment. The existing miniature puncture wounds are sufficient to absorb this custom-made plasma.
