PLATELET RICH PLASMA THERAPY (PRP)
Treat Hair Loss and Improve Your Skin's Appearance
Platelet-Rich Plasma therapy (PRP) can be used to treat scalp hair loss, improve facial tone, texture, and color, and more.
Dr. Steve Lasater harnesses the PRP technique to jumpstart hair regrowth, organically revitalize skin, and reverse the effects of aging, sun damage, harsh work environments, and other factors.
WHAT IS PLATELET RICH PLASMA (PRP)?
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) comes from your own blood. It’s drawn from your body and placed in a centrifuge to separate platelets from other components. These cells contain proteins, called fibrins, that aid in healing.
Running your platelets through the centrifuge separates the platelet-rich components from the rest of the blood. This increased potency makes PRP therapy a popular treatment option for injured athletes.
Dr. Lasater uses platelet-rich components to repair damaged skin. Instead of inserting unnatural materials into your body, platelets are used to recruit new stem cells that eventually produce fibrin and collagen.
HOW DOES PRP THERAPY WORK?
For hair loss, the injected platelets prompt inactive hair follicles to begin production again. The follicles enter an active growth phase and hair begins to grow again.
For skin rejuvenation, platelet rich components are used to repair damaged skin. Instead of inserting unnatural materials into your body, Dr. Lasater injects platelets, which then recruit new stem cells that eventually produce fibrin and collagen.
This new collagen production adds volume to skin that has begun losing its fullness, diminishes the appearance of dark circles, and helps clear up discolorations and breakouts. You’ll see a big improvement in your overall skin tone.
Dr. Lasater prepares for PRP treatment by cleaning the specific area and applying a topical anesthetic to relieve discomfort. He then injects the PRP at specific points.
