Platelet Rich Plasma Injection Therapy

“The use of platelet rich plasma (PRP) is an expanding phenomenon based on success in skin revitalization and hair regrowth. Our experienced specialists at the Youth Corridor Clinic have been in the forefront of maximizing these natural growth factors.”

Gerald Imber, M.D.

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Injection Therapy is the latest advancement for the treatment of facial aging. Originally used to treat orthopedic injuries, like Rotator Cuff and Tennis Elbow, PRP dramatically rehabilitates the injury and improves healing time.

Most recently, PRP has entered the esthetics and plastic surgery field, and has proven to be a successful treatment for sagging skin, fine lines and wrinkles, skin tone and scarring.

This is a game-changer and should be considered by anyone looking to prevent or reverse signs of aging.

“I am thrilled with the fast and obvious results from my PRP injections. My skin looks plumper and much more rejuvenated.”

What is PRP?

Platelet Rich Plasma is a high concentration of growth factors and stem cells from your plasma, and when injected into skin encourages cell growth, tissue repair and collagen production.

To harvest PRP, a Registered Nurse collects blood in a test tube and then places it in a centrifuge that separates the platelet rich plasma from red blood cells, concentrating the growth factors.

Why do you need PRP?

When it comes to aging skin, the goal is to prevent the breakdown of collagen. When collagen breaks down, signs of aging begin to show. Our solution, PRP.

Introducing growth factors at a deeper level of the skin, repairs damaged cells, strengthening collagen as it renews itself. Stronger collagen results in tighter, toner, smoother skin.

What does PRP treat?

PRP Therapy can benefit most individuals and can be used to treat a variety of aging concerns, including but not limited to:

  • Facial Aging
  • Fine Lines
  • Hair Thinning
  • Dark, under eye circles
  • Lip Lines
  • Scarring
  • Skin Laxity
  • Stretch Marks
  • Uneven Skin Tone
  • Acne Scars

Everyone responds differently to treatment, so we suggest starting with a series of 3 treatments spaced 1 month apart. We continue to analyze skin during the treatments to review progress.

“I feel like the darkness and puffiness around my eyes had diminished significantly, my skin is smoother all over but especially where I had some acne scarring, and I have more elasticity, I look like I did 20 years ago, but better!”

What treatments are available?

Microneedling with PRP: 
During this treatment, PRP is painted onto face and then a tool is used to make micro-wounds on skin that heal rapidly tightening and rejuvenating skin.

PRP Injection Therapy: 
PRP is injected into skin to encourage collagen growth within the dermis. It is particularly effective in reducing acne scarring, wrinkles and lip lines.

Microneedling with PRP Injections
This treatment combines injections with microneedling, to treat skin cells on the inside and the outside.

How does PRP help hair growth?

PRP treatment for hair thinning and loss has proven to be the best new tool available. When PRP is used for hair restoration, your growth factors and stem cells work together to reverse the miniaturization of the hair follicle, helping to jumpstart the dormant hair back into the growth stage. Hair growth is stimulated.

What else do I need to know about PRP for Hair Regrowth?

Not all patients are candidates for this treatment so we recommend scheduling a consultation with Dr. Imber to discuss your concerns and medical history. Everyone responds differently and there may be a short recovery period in areas that are treated.

Hair regrowth can take anywhere from six months to a year due to the growth cycle of hair follicles. We recommend starting with a series of 3 treatments spaced 1 month apart.

“Harnessing the growth factors in Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) has changed the face of skin care technology.”
