PRP Hair & Skin


PRP Hair

What is PRP therapy?

PRP (platelet-rich plasma) therapy for hair loss is a three-step medical treatment in which a person’s blood is drawn, processed, and then injected into the scalp.

Some in the medical community think that PRP injections trigger natural hair growth and maintain it by increasing blood supply to the hair follicle and increasing the thickness of the hair shaft. Sometimes this approach is combined with other hair loss procedures or medications.

There hasn’t been enough research to prove if PRP is an effective hair loss treatment. However, PRP therapy has been in use since the 1980s. It’s been used for problems such as healing injured tendons, ligaments, and muscles.

PRP therapy process

PRP therapy is a three-step process. Most PRP therapy requires three treatments 4–6 weeks apart.

Maintenance treatments are required every 4–6 months.

Step 1

Your blood is drawn — typically from your arm — and put into a centrifuge (a machine that spins rapidly to separate fluids of different densities).

Step 2

After about 10 minutes in the centrifuge, your blood will have separated into in three layers:

  • platelet-poor plasma
  • platelet-rich plasma
  • red blood cells

Step 3

The platelet-rich plasma is drawn up into a syringe and then injected into areas of the scalp that need increased hair growth.

There hasn’t been enough research to prove whether PRP is effective. It’s also unclear for whom — and under what circumstances — it’s most effective.

According to a recent studyTrusted Source, “Although PRP has sufficient theoretical scientific basis to support its use in hair restoration, hair restoration using PRP is still at its infancy. Clinical evidence is still weak.”

PRP Skin also known as “Vampire Facial”

PRP & Vampire Facial treatment is suitable for:

  • Tired and dry skin, laxity of skin, uneven pigmentation
  • Signs of skin ageing
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Overall texture and tone improvement
  • Certain types of alopecia or general hair thinning
  • Stimulates collagen growth and natural skin regrowth and renewal.
  • People looking for a natural treatment using the body’s own healing process
  • Stimulates collagen growth and natural skin regrowth and renewal.
  • Healthier skin that looks and feels healthier.

The Vampire Facial at at Maviva Spa– involves the use of Eclipse MicroPen for micro needling or collagen induction therapy. A certified nurse uses the Eclipse MicroPen to gently aerate the skin, and then topically applies serums or skin care products.  The tiny micro holes made by the Eclipse MicroPen allows for easier absorption of serum, product or even your own Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP); hence the name Vampire Facial.  The Eclipse MicroPen has proven extremely useful in the treatment of skin scarring, acne, sun damage and a host of other skin care procedures

The Vampire Facelift is similar to an injectable filler but instead of injecting a substance like hyaluronic acid or collagen, the procedure involves withdrawing a bit of your own blood so that it can be processed to concentrate the amount of platelets and other elements vital in tissue building. This processed blood is then reinjected to achieve the same volume-boosting results that any other injectable filler achieves, making the skin smoother and reshaping facial contours.
