What is Pro Plasma?
Platelet Rich Plasma is a highly sought after in-office treatment for nonsurgical skin and hair rejuvenation.
Platelet Rich Plasma uses the patient’s own blood plasma through a concentration therapy in office to render a serum of bioactive proteins and growth factors that can help accelerate tissue repair and activate stem cells. The Pro Plasma treatment is commonly used with microneedling or post laser as well as an injectable therapy.
This treatments can also be used as an injectable application for thinning hair in both men and women. The Platelet Rich Plasma treatment has been proven through research to decrease cellular death and increase cellular growth for both hair and skin. Patients who desire a more natural approach may find Pro Plasma as a good treatment option.
What Can I Expect From a Treatment Session?
Recovery for this procedure results in minimal downtime. You can go back to your typical daily activities the day after a treatment. There may still be some redness and other signs of minor irritation. Cleanse once a day and moisturize as needed. We recommend avoiding alcohol-based products and exfoliants during the recovery stage. Proper sun protection is also very important. A post procedure protocol will be given to you in office.
Until your skin has completely healed, avoid rigorous activities that might cause excessive sweating and heat production (running, high-intensity workouts, ect.) Sweating may cause irritation and rigorous activity may increase the risk of swelling, bruising and hyperpigmentation. This usually should be avoided for at least 48-72 hours after your treatment.
