What is PRP?

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a blood product created from a sample of your own blood that contains a high concentration of platelets. 

When you have an injury, your blood sends platelets to stop the bleeding. Platelets also contain specialized proteins and growth factors that initiate the healing of the injury.

PRP contains a high concentration of your own platelets. Health care providers use PRP to stimulate or support your body’s natural healing process.

PRP facials

For PRP facials, Dr. Thampy combines microneedling with PRP. Microneedling is a cosmetic treatment that creates tiny puncture wounds on the surface of your skin, activating your skin’s healing process.

Combining PRP with microneedling enhances the rejuvenating effects of the microneedling treatments. Dr. Thampy often uses PRP following microneedling for scar treatment. 

PRP fillers

PRP fillers combine dermal fillers with PRP. Dermal fillers are gel-like injections that add volume under your skin to smooth lines and wrinkles and enhance natural features.

Adding PRP to the dermal fillers improves your skin’s natural strength and elasticity and may prolong the rejuvenating effects.

PRP for hair rejuvenation

PRP for hair rejuvenation helps reactivate dormant hair follicles that cause balding and hair thinning. Dr. Thampy injects the PRP into the scalp, stimulating and prolonging hair growth and improving hair thickness and health.
