Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) isn’t a traditional drug: It’s a formula of components from your blood that help your body heal and rejuvenate naturally. Specifically, it contains two essential parts:
Blood plasma is the yellowish liquid that carries your red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets through your veins and arteries. It consists of water and various proteins.
Platelets are a type of cell in your blood that, when activated, helps rebuild your tissues after an injury. They clot together and release growth factors to kick off the healing process.
The team at Amélie is excited to offer many enhancements using PRP to promote cell regeneration and youthfulness. Your options include:
PRP can help if you have a receding hairline or a growing bald spot. With three initial rounds of PRP injections and maintenance treatments after that, you can regrow your natural hair instead of using plugs, wigs, or hairpieces.
By combining dermal fillers with PRP, you can boost your skin’s natural collagen production for long-lasting, natural facial enhancements.
Often mistaken for a PRP face-lift, a PRP facial is a microneedling treatment with a PRP infusion. It boosts collagen and elastin growth in your skin to make it firmer, smoother, and tighter.
Aquagold is a microinjector device that uses gold-plated steel needles to create channels in your face. During an Aquagold treatment with PRP, the injector infuses a formula of PRP, dermal fillers, Botox®, and/or vitamins into your skin to improve the appearance of scars, wrinkles, and fine lines, and lost volume.
The V-Shot is an injection of PRP for your feminine functioning. The shot revitalizes the tissues in your vagina and clitoris to improve sexual response and treat urinary incontinence.
PRP provides a number of benefits when compared to various medications and treatments with similar intentions. The main advantage of using PRP, besides its ability to stimulate cell regeneration, is its lack of side effects. Since the substance comes from your own body, you have little to no chance of rejecting it or getting an adverse reaction.
