PLATELET RICH PLASMA
Known as the “Vampire Lift” this treatment can be paired with hyaluronic acid filler and combined with laser resurfacing, skin tightening and micro-needling procedures.
Prior to treatment, a simple blood sample is extracted from the patient. The vile of blood is placed in the centrifuge for 15 minutes. Once in the centrifuge, a process of high spinning is started in a precise manner, once this is completed your plasma will be separated from your red blood cells. The rich platelets are extracted from the base of the plasma gel. Then the platelets are injected into the deep dermis or fat layer of the skin for the regeneration of fibroblasts and cellular renewal. Platelets will gradually increase collagen which can increase skin thickness and overall health of the skin.
ARE THE RESULTS IMMEDIATE?
Minor swelling and wound healing are obvious at first sight. However, collagen rejuvenation can take from 6 weeks depending on the condition of your skin, age, and lifestyle. More than one treatment will be necessary if the skin is mature. The recommendation is to have 3-6 treatments for optimal results. A personal assessment will be scheduled to customize your PRP treatment.

PLATELET RICH PLASMA THERAPY IN HAIR RESTORATION – PRP THERAPY
At the Goldberg med spa, we have been performing PRP therapy as a proactive therapeutic option for male and female patients experiencing hair loss. PRP is an exciting non-surgical therapeutic option for patients who require stimulation of hair growth for hair loss conditions.
HOW DO YOU PERFORM THE PROCEDURE?
Blood is drawn in our office as though you are having routine blood testing at your primary care physician’s office. The blood is spun in a centrifuge and the PRP is separated and removed from the rest of the blood.
The blood is taken from your body and is specially prepared by spinning down the blood cells to a high concentration. The centrifuge is a sterile system and the platelets are concentrated to 3X the normal blood values. A numbing cream is applied to the scalp so the patient does not feel any pain. The highly concentrated platelet rich plasma (PRP) is then injected into the scalp.
PRP contains many growth factors that stimulate the hair follicle’s growth. Patient’s will require a series of treatments performed every three (3) to four (4) weeks apart. Maintenance of once or 2 times a year depending on your assessment to further stimulate and sustain hair growth.
