Simple treatments can take years off your appearance and turn back the hands of time.

Schedule an appointment at SkinblvdLA by phone or online today to learn more.
PRP comes from a sample of your blood, as platelets are part of your body’s natural healing capabilities. Your SkinblvdLA provider extracts PRP after taking a blood sample from one of your veins. They spin it in a centrifuge to obtain a more concentrated source of platelets before applying the PRP with microneedling into your skin or scalp, or injecting the PRP.
PRP offers numerous aesthetic benefits, including:
If you experience thinning hair, PRP helps increase hair regrowth. It offers a younger look without invasive procedures, pain, or downtime.
To determine if you’re a candidate for PRP, your provider discusses your beauty goals and reviews your medical history. They examine your scalp, face, or other areas of your body before customizing a treatment that’s best suited for your needs and desired results.
During PRP treatment, your specialist takes a blood sample from one of your veins. They spin it in a centrifuge to obtain a concentrated source of platelets. Your provider cleans the treatment area, numbs it if needed, and injects PRP or applies it to the treatment area with microneedling.
Microneedling is a treatment that uses tiny needles to make microscopic tears in your skin to stimulate new cell growth without invasive treatments. Your treatment may last 30-60 minutes, depending on the type of treatment you undergo and the size of the areas treated.
After you receive PRP treatment, the treatment area may be temporarily sensitive, red, or swollen. Over the next few days, weeks, and months, you can expect thicker hair, a younger-looking appearance, fewer wrinkles, and skin revitalization.
A series of PRP treatments often produces the most effective results. Your SkinblvdLA provider determines which treatment best matches your needs and lets you know when to schedule your next treatment session.
