Revitalize Your Skin Organically

Introducing Higdon Plastic Surgery's PRP (platelet-rich plasma) treatment, a rejuvenating solution designed to address many skin concerns. From fine lines and wrinkles to acne scars and uneven skin tone, to hair rejuvenation for patients with thinning hair – you now have a solution to help rid yourself of insecurities surrounding your skin and hairs’ appearance, which can deeply impact your self-esteem and confidence. Our practice understands these emotional struggles and offers PRP therapy as a safe, organic approach to skincare and hair care backed by scientific evidence. It is delivered with expertise and compassion to achieve natural, long-lasting results.

What Is PRP Treatment?

PRP treatment, or platelet-rich plasma therapy, is a cutting-edge regenerative procedure that utilizes the healing properties of a patient's blood to rejuvenate the skin. During the process, a small amount of blood is drawn from the patient and spun in a centrifuge to separate the platelets and plasma from other blood components. The resulting PRP solution, rich in growth factors and proteins, is then applied topically or injected directly into target areas of concern, such as the tear troughs or other areas of the face, to stimulate collagen production, promote tissue repair, and improve skin texture and tone. For patients seeking hair rejuvenation for thinning hair, PRP is injected into the areas of concern in most cases but can also be combined with SkinPen Microneedling as well. This natural approach harnesses the body's innate healing mechanisms to achieve visible, long-lasting results with minimal risk of adverse reactions.

The Benefits of PRP Treatment

PRP treatment at Higdon Plastic Surgery offers a multitude of benefits for skin rejuvenation and regeneration, including the following:

Enhanced Collagen Production

PRP stimulates the production of collagen, a vital protein responsible for skin elasticity and firmness, leading to smoother, more youthful-looking skin.

Thicker Hair

PRP addresses thinning hair by improving hair thickness at the hair follicle level, converting vellus hairs to more youthful terminal hair structures.

Improved Skin Texture

By promoting cell turnover and tissue repair, PRP helps to refine skin texture, reducing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and scars for a more even complexion.

Natural Results

By utilizing the body's healing properties, PRP treatment provides natural-looking results without synthetic fillers or chemicals.

Minimal Downtime

PRP therapy is minimally invasive, typically requiring little to no downtime, allowing patients to resume their daily activities shortly after treatment.

Long-Lasting Effects

With a series of treatments, PRP can yield long-lasting improvements in skin quality, helping to maintain a youthful appearance over time.

Is PRP Treatment Right for Me?

PRP treatment may suit individuals seeking natural rejuvenation, skin texture, and appearance improvement. Many of our patients are seeking PRP for hair rejuvenation to help turn back the clock in areas of thinning hair to restore a more youthful head of hair. Ideal candidates often experience fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, or dull skin tone and desire a non-surgical approach to enhance their skin's vitality. Additionally, those seeking to address specific areas like tear troughs may find PRP injections beneficial for rejuvenating the under-eye area.

What to Expect The PRP Treatment Procedure

During a PRP treatment at Higdon Plastic Surgery, the process typically begins with extracting a small amount of the patient's blood, usually from the arm. The blood sample is then processed using a centrifuge to separate the platelet-rich plasma (PRP) from other blood components. Once the PRP is obtained, it is prepared for administration.

Depending on the treatment area and your specific needs, PRP may be applied topically to the skin or injected into targeted areas using fine needles. Topical application may involve microneedling to enhance absorption and stimulate collagen production. The entire procedure typically takes about 30 to 60 minutes, depending on the extent of treatment and the areas being addressed.

The science behind PRP treatment lies in its rich concentration of growth factors and cytokines found in platelets, which promote tissue repair, collagen production, and skin rejuvenation. By harnessing the body's natural healing mechanisms, PRP treatment offers a safe and effective approach to enhancing skin texture, tone, and overall appearance.

PRP Treatment Recovery

Following PRP treatment, patients typically experience minimal downtime and can resume their normal activities immediately. Some individuals may notice slight redness, swelling, or bruising at the injection sites, which usually subsides within a few days. It's essential to follow any post-procedure instructions provided by our team, such as avoiding vigorous exercise, excessive sun exposure, or certain skincare products for a specified period. While results may vary depending on individual factors and the specific treatment area, you can expect skin texture, tone, and overall appearance improvements within a few weeks to months after the procedure. Follow-up appointments may be scheduled to monitor progress and determine if additional treatments are necessary to achieve desired outcomes.
