Is PRP Like Botox?

By | Platelet Rich Plasma, PRP Injections

Botox is one of the oldest and most well known cosmetic injections on the market. Platelet rich plasma, or PRP, injections are among the newest. With many patients considering non-surgical cosmetic procedures, they want to understand the difference between the various options. Let’s look at one of the questions on this topic, “Is PRP like Botox?”

Platelet rich plasma injections are more comparable to dermal fillers than Botox. Botox is a type of injection known as a neurotoxin that temporarily relaxes targeted muscles to prevent and treat the formation of wrinkles. While there is a small collagen response, this is standard with any injection and is not the main part of Botox.

With PRP injections though, it heightens the collagen response that is generated from the injection itself. Over time and with multiple sessions, this helps build up the natural collagen in the treatment area. This is most often used under the eyes and for acne scars.

Recovery After A Non-Surgical BBL In Seattle

By | Platelet Rich Plasma, PRP Injections | No Comments

A non-surgical Brazilian butt lift does not require surgery or general anesthesia. However, it does necessitate a short recovery period and some instructions to promote the best results. Your plastic surgeon will make sure you understand the instructions for your recovery after a non-surgical BBL.

Firstly, you will need someone to drive you home after the procedure. Some patients choose to take an oral sedative, which impairs their senses enough that they are unfit to drive. Even if no sedative is taken, patients should not drive as it may be uncomfortable immediately following the procedure.

Secondly, you should refrain from sitting on your buttocks for at least 24 hours. Your plastic surgeon can provide the ideal timeline based on your procedure. It takes time for the PRP, filler, or other components to settle and sitting could cause them to become misplaced.

Thirdly, some side effects from the injections are expected and normal. These can include: swelling, bruising, redness, and pain at the injection site. Based on the size of Zombie BBL or non-surgical BBL you wanted, there may be some immediate results. This will vary by patient and results should become more visible in the coming months.

Benefits Of PRP Facials

By | PRP Skin Care | No Comments

Platelet rich plasma facials come in many forms. Microneedling with PRP as well as more traditional facials all feature many benefits. At PRP In Seattle, we offer microneedling with PRP and our proprietary zombie laser facial to help rejuvenate your skin. 

In general, PRP facials can supply benefits like: skin texture improvements, acne scar treatment, reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and a more even skin tone. Arguably the best benefit, however, is that the PRP technology in our facials stimulates collagen production. 

Collagen is a protein that supports your skin and makes it supple and bouncy. PRP facials increase cell turnover and collagen production, a similar process to wound healing. This leads to your skin looking rejuvenated and can help smooth out acne scars and other similar skin concerns. PRP facials also have anti-aging benefits.

Overall, our master estheticians work to cater your PRP facial to your skin type and tone. To schedule a consultation with one of our master estheticians at PRP In Seattle, call us at 206-279-2112 or contact us online.

5 Tips To Prevent Hair Loss

By | Hair Restoration, Platelet Rich Plasma | No Comments

Hair loss happens naturally from age and in our daily lives. Most of the time, new hair regularly replaces shed hair. However, some people experience more hair loss or their genetics dictate larger amounts of hair loss. Regardless of the cause or amount of hair you lose, there are some ways you can minimize and prevent hair loss. 

If your hair loss is unpreventable, or has reached the stage where prevention tactics can only manage hair loss, PRP In Seattle offers many PRP hair restoration methods to help grow new hair.

#1: Eat A Nutritious Diet & Stay Hydrated

Not getting enough nutrients can cause or worsen hair loss. While vitamins and supplements can help, the best way to get all the nutrients your body needs is to eat nutrient rich foods. Additionally, keeping hydrated is known to help your skin and is important to healthy bodily function.

#2: Avoid Over Brushing

Brushing your hair too much can cause hair breakage and extra loss. While it is obviously necessary to brush your hair, do so gently and with a wide toothed comb to minimize trauma to the hair.

#3: Stop Smoking

Smoking causes constriction of the blood vessels which can shrink hair follicles and lead to hair loss. Avoiding or quitting cigarettes can prevent current and future hair loss.

#4: Avoid Constrictive Hairstyles

For people with long hair, tight ponytails or hairstyles can pull on the hair or scalp which can lead to hair loss. Especially if worn consistently, some may begin to see thinning hair near the sites of the most constriction.

The Process Of Creating PRP

By | Platelet Rich Plasma | No Comments

Platelet rich plasma, or PRP, exists naturally in our bodies. However, it is one of hundreds of components that make up our blood. Therefore, a specialized process must be performed to isolate PRP for procedures like PRP hair restoration and microneedling with PRP

The first step in creating PRP is drawing your blood. Once drawn, your provider will place the blood into our state-of-the-art centrifuge. This will spin the blood at a consistent speed for around twenty minutes. This separates out the different cells and particles of the blood, allowing the yellowish PRP to rise to the top of the vial. This is the standard for creating PRP.

At this point, your provider will extract the PRP from the vial and mix it with ACell, placenta, or use PRP on it’s own for your chosen treatment. The great thing about platelet rich plasma is that to isolate it requires no foreign substances or additives, which makes it safe and low risk to inject into the body.

Platelet rich plasma is a natural, regenerative substance used for a variety of medical and cosmetic benefits. This includes hair restoration to combat hair thinning, skincare procedures like microneedling, and even non-surgical Brazilian butt lifts. PRP is also sometimes used in surgery to aid in the healing of tissues and incisions. Other medical uses of PRP include treatment of arthritis, torn tendons and ligaments, and other muscle and joint injuries.

PRP With ACell: How They Work Together

By | Hair Restoration | No Comments

During some hair restoration techniques, platelet rich plasma is combined with ACell. PRP comes from the patient’s blood on the day of treatment. ACell is a type of stem cell derived from pig bladders. When injected into the scalp, these two regenerative tools can provide visible results and hair growth. 

Platelet rich plasma acts as fertilizer for your hair follicles. When injected, it tells your body that there has been an injury. Your body then sends defenses such as white blood cells and proteins to heal the microscopic injury. Additionally, PRP itself contains growth factors and hormones that support hair growth. This can help heal damaged hair follicles and promote the growth of new hair in the treatment area.

ACell provides the topsoil for your new hair. When your scalp has damaged (but not inactive) hair follicles, skin issues, or your hair loss is more extensive, ACell can bond with your existing skin to provide a new, nutrient-rich environment that can better support hair.

When you choose to combine PRP and ACell during your hair restoration treatment, you receive the most advanced injectable hair restoration procedure available. To schedule your consultation at PRP In Seattle, call us at (206) 279-2112 or contact us online.

Microneedling with PRP in Seattle, Bellevue and Kirkland

The Unparalleled Benefits Of Microneedling With PRP

By | Platelet Rich Plasma, PRP Skin Care | No Comments

Microneedling is one of the hottest skin care treatments on the market for the past few years. It’s ability to restore a more-youthful appearance is remarkable without entourage procedures. However, when this powerful collagen induction procedure is combined with the regenerative powers of platelet rich plasma, it can offer exponentially better results. 

Hyaluronic acid serums have traditionally been used after microneedling sessions, as the microscopic punctures allow for deeper serum penetration. Substituting PRP for traditional serums has been shown to supercharge microneedling procedures, further increasing collagen production. The end result is more supporting tissue below your skin and less wrinkles on the surface.

PRP encourages cell regeneration. This allows you see faster results, possibly with fewer treatments than if you chose traditional microneedling. Adding PRP to microneedling is common in the treatment of deep acne scarring and may help provide an improved result when treating surgical scars.
