PLATELET RICH PLASMA (PRP)

Platelet rich plasma (PRP) is a therapy that utilizes a patient's own blood to stimulate a healing response within a damaged tissue or joint. This form of therapy takes cutting edge technology and combines it with the body's natural ability to heal itself.

PRP is made by taking a small sample of a patient's own blood and spinning the sample in a centrifuge for fifteen minutes. This process concentrates platelets and white blood cells in what is called a "buffy coat" that is extracted and delivered to the injured area. Growth factors in the platelets recruit and produce cells necessary for healing.

At Esteem, we use PRP as an add on with our Genuine Dermaroller™, EDermastamp™ and Pixel treatments.

Dr. Jezdic is also offering PRP for Hair Loss. If the hair follicles or hair roots are healthy, the growth of the hair is healthy. Hair follicles survive on the nutrition they get from blood supply. If we introduce platelets by administering platelet rich plasma (PRP) in the area of damaged hair follicles, it amplifies the body's naturally occurring wound healing mechanism. PRP can be used to stimulate the growth of hair follicles, preventing hair loss.
