Did you know Platelet-Rich-Plasma aka PRP Therapy can stop and even cause hair growth in those suffering from hair loss? Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy is useful for facial rejuvenation, sports injuries, post-operative surgery recovery but also has been proven to be highly effective for halting hair loss and even causing hair growth.
At LMC’s Plasma Clinic, we offer both RegenLab PRP and Harvest® PRP to successfully treat hair and skin concerns. LMC’s Plasma Clinic has been offering PRP Therapy since 2013 for those in Newmarket. LMC is renowned for offering excellent and visible results at the most reasonable price in your city. Because we know that results matter.
Harvest® PRP Treatment for Skin & Hair Rejuvenation in Newmarket
When compared to other invasive methods for hair restoration, Harvest® PRP Therapy has several benefits. The Harvest® PRP Treatment takes about 45 minutes, with no downtime and has been rated as a 2 out of 10 in pain by our clients. More importantly, PRP Hair Restoration may provide you with freedom and you will no longer have to deal with uncomfortable wigs, irritating scalp formulas filled with harmful chemicals and bothersome hats.
As a highly effective hair loss solution, PRP Therapy stimulates growth factors in the cells of your hair follicle. This stimulation promotes hair growth in the cells that seem dormant. PRP Therapy is natural and therapeutic, using your own blood’s growth factors. This means there is virtually no risk of your body rejecting the platelet-rich-plasma or reacting with an allergic reaction to it.
Harvest® PRP is considered to be a superior PRP Concentration compared to 12 other leading PRP methods on the market because it can achieve a higher concentration of platelets. When PRP is injected into the scalp, hair growth is promoted. PRP produced using the Harvest® SmartPrep® Multicellular Processing System delivers the highest concentration and yield of platelets when compared to a multitude of other systems, as shown here.
The PRP procedure has also become a popular skin rejuvenation method, with celebrities like Kim Kardashian relying on thee PRP Facial prior to red carpet events. At LMC’s plasma clinic, we perform the “PRP Facelift” aka the “Vampire Facial” or “Vampire Lift”, to provide our facial rejuvenation clients with glowing and younger-looking skin. Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy triggers the natural process of collagen production which results in diminished fine lines, plumper skin and brightened under eyes. At LMC’s Plasma Clinic, we prefer using an advanced medical micro-needling gun to inject the platelet-rich plasma to the treatment area. Our mesogun allow tiny droplets to be delivered into the treatment area at an accelerated pace with controlled depth, volume, and great precision. Using a mesogun allows us to omit the use of numbing cream (which can impact the end result by impairing blood circulation in the treatment area). Perhaps more enticing, using a mesogun also allows the procedure to be virtually painless.
Two of the biggest benefits of PRP therapy are natural results with minimal to no downtime. It’s natural because the your own blood is used for the treatment with no fillers, harm chemicals or irritants involved. Your blood contains valuable fundamental protein growth factors that aid the body’s healing processes. This procedure has minimal to no downtime because PRP is completely non-invasive. The PRP Therapy treatment process can be compared to undergoing a traditional blood test. However, pain and downtime can also vary from patient to patient as pain is highly subjective to the individual. Post-treatment, patients are provided with instructions to follow in order to achieve the best results.
We all know blood contains platelets that are key in clotting & healing wounds. However, many don’t know that blood also contains fundamental growth factors designed to recover and heal. Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy harnesses these regenerative growth factors by activating them to promote natural healing. This enhancement is done by stimulating the underlying tissue to speed up tissue and collagen production to create smoother/plumper skin and fuller hair.
What areas can PRP & PRF treat? PRP & PRF For Facial Rejuvenation (PRP Facial/Vampire Lift)
Since 2006, PRP & PRF therapy has been used in facial rejuvenation around the world. PRP & PRF therapy provides visible results by:
Smoothing and plumping along the forehead, cheeks and eyes.
Minimizing smile lines around the nasal folds.
Tightening and lifting along the neck/jawline and décolleté.
Improving the appearance of skin and minimizing acne scars.
Improving the appearance of the hands by minimizing age spots and tightening skin.
Results may vary with each individual, though typically you may see noticeable improvements in skin tone and texture within 3 weeks of treatment. Improvements may continue for several months after post-treatment. Combining PRP with other treatments (Laser Treatments, Mesotherapy treatments, etc.) may prolong results.
Hair growth is a popular treatment choice for PRP. PRP stimulates hair follicles to produce a healthy environment to strengthen and thicken current hair follicles. PRP also speeds up the growth of hair transplants for clients who have done that procedure. Post-treatment, you may return to normal activity immediately; though the scalp may need protection from sun exposure and excessive irritation.
Please note, not everyone is an ideal candidate. Patients with an active infection related to the scalp area, history of a viral infection (shingles, blood-clotting disorder), on blood-thinning medications (aspiring, immunosuppressive drugs) would not be ideal candidates. As well, if the hair follicles are completely lost, this procedure is less likely to assist in producing viable results.
* Please note: While PRP treatment has a high success rate, patients should note that treatment will not be effective for everyone despite our best efforts.
As the patient’s own blood is used to prepare PRP, the risk of disease transmissions, allergic reactions, toxicity or rejection is avoided. Other contraindications include patients:
Who have haematological disorders or concurrent infections;
Who have immunosuppression;
Suffer from poorly controlled chronic medical conditions;
Are pregnant or breastfeeding.
Anyone with underlying disorder such as thyroid disease or lupus or diabetes aren’t likely to have good results because these conditions will continue to cause hair loss over time.
