Hair loss and signs of aging are problems that both men and women have to deal with, and can begin at any age. Florida Skin Center offers PRP therapy to treat hair loss and signs of facial aging. We welcome individuals in the Fort Myers, Punta Gorda, Lehigh Acres, and Cape Coral areas of Florida.
What is Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy?
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy is a treatment that involves drawing your blood and separating platelets, growth factors and nutrients from the blood sample. The platelet-rich plasma is used to stimulate hair restoration as well as improve skin texture and promote healing on the face and other areas of skin.
How Much Does PRP Therapy Cost in Cape Coral, FL?
To determine the exact cost of your PRP therapy treatment, we invite you to schedule a consultation with one of our Florida Skin Center physicians. A customized treatment plan is created for each patient to satisfy his or her cosmetic goals. Once a treatment plan is created, we will be able to provide a clear breakdown of the costs associated with your PRP treatment. To make our services accessible to those who need them, we offer flexible financing and payment options, as well as insurance when applicable.
What Conditions Does PRP Therapy Treat?
PRP therapy is commonly used to increase the elasticity, firmness and the production of collagen in the skin. Specifically, PRP therapy helps promote healing in the face when it is injected under the skin as part of a facial treatment. PRP therapy is also used to support hair growth and hair restoration when it is injected into the scalp.
How is PRP Therapy Administered?
First, your blood will be drawn for a sample. The blood is then placed in a centrifuge to separate the platelet-rich plasma from other parts of the blood. Next, the PRP is administered to the scalp or skin through injections. When the PRP is injected into parts of the scalp that have hair loss, it supports the natural growth of hair. PRP can also be injected into the face as part of a rejuvenating facial treatment to reduce signs of aging such as lines and wrinkles, as well as improve collagen growth and volume.
How Many Treatments Will I Need to See Results?
Although results vary, you can expect to start noticing new hair growth after the second or third PRP therapy treatment. You may have multiple treatments given 2-3 months apart, but an exact treatment plan will be discussed during your consultation.
What is the Recovery Period for PRP?
Because we are using the platelets that help us heal, the downtime is very minimal. Patients can experience redness for about 2-3 days but will be able to return to work and daily activities following treatment.
At the Florida Skin Center, we offer PRP treatment in two major cases: as part of a treatment protocol for facial rejuvenation and as part of our comprehensive hair regrowth and restoration program. If your hair is beginning to thin, you are experiencing significant hair loss, or your face has lost some of its volume, elasticity or firmness due to aging, contact us today to schedule an appointment or to learn more about PRP therapy. Florida Skin Center offers advanced dermatologic treatments and services to the residents of Punta Gorda, Fort Myers, Cape Coral and Lehigh Acres, FL.
