Rao Dermatology offers platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatments at our Atlantic Highlands office for patients who are interested in treating hair loss or who are looking for a complete skin rejuvenation to help combat the visible signs of age. PRP is an autologous treatment that is comprised of high levels of platelets, the tiny blood cells that play an important role in the body’s natural healing response, and can be used to repair and regenerate damaged tissues and cells and stimulate circulation in a treated area. PRP is created by drawing a small amount of blood from the patient and placing it into a centrifuge to separate the platelets from the plasma. Once the platelets and plasma have been separated, the PRP is reinjected into the designated treatment area and the platelets and other growth factors begin to work to improve the treated condition at a cellular level.

PRP for Hair Loss
Hair loss typically occurs as a result of damaged hair follicles that are no longer able to produce hair normally. PRP can be used to help repair and regenerate damaged hair follicles that have resulted in hair loss. The growth factors found in PRP also help stimulate circulation in the treatment area, which improves blood supply and brings important nutrients to the hair follicles that help them function normally. Over time, PRP can help restore thicker, fuller, healthier hair regrowth and can yield results that are comparable to hair transplants.
The results of PRP treatments for hair loss develop gradually as the platelets work to repair the damaged hair follicles. Most patients begin to see visible improvement in hair growth within three to six months of their PRP treatment. Many patients will require at least three treatment sessions in order to achieve optimal results of this hair restoration method. Individual results may vary.
PRP for Skin Rejuvenation
When used for skin rejuvenation, PRP can help address the visible signs of age, including fine lines and wrinkles, loose or lax skin, and loss of facial volume. The PRP stimulates the body’s natural production of collagen, elastin, and other skin support structures, which helps improve the overall quality of the skin. Over time, patients will see a visible improvement in the tone and texture of their skin and a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles. PRP can also be used as an alternative to injectable dermal fillers for patients who are not candidates. Multiple treatment sessions may be required in order to achieve the patient’s desired results. Individual results may vary.
