Are There Side Effects Of PRP Injections?

By | Hair Restoration, PRP Injections

PRP injections, or platelet rich plasma injections, have many cosmetic and therapeutic uses. Patients often worry about the side effects of the injections prior to treatment and ask: are there side effects of PRP injections? Like with any medical treatment, PRP injections do come with side effects that may affect some patients. 


Any injection–whether a routine vaccine or BOTOX–can cause side effects like swelling, pain, or redness. Usually, these side effects are minor and clear away within a day or two. The most commonly experienced side effects after PRP injections are these same minor ones. 


For patients who undergo PRP hair restoration, they may experience tightness in the scalp and redness similar to a sunburn. This is because patients receive a large amount of injections at once and the treatment takes place in a relatively sensitive area. 


One of the biggest advantages of PRP is that allergic reactions are extremely rare, if not impossible in most patients. Since PRP is derived from a person’s own blood, the body does not view it as a foreign substance.

The Zombie Laser Peel: How Our PRP Laser Peel Works

By | Platelet Rich Plasma, PRP Skin Care

Laser resurfacing and chemical peels are two of the most popular professional skincare procedures. Combined with platelet rich plasma, these procedures are supercharged. At PRP In Seattle, our proprietary zombie laser peel combines all the benefits of these treatments into one. 

When you come in for a zombie laser peel, your Seattle master esthetician will prepare the PRP and prep your skin for the peel. They will create the peel and apply it to the skin. Once fully applied, they will use a laser to slowly remove the skin peel. This leaves your skin feeling rejuvenated and holds many benefits. 

Using targeted laser beams, the laser latches onto the pigment in the peel and powerfully resurfaces the skin as it removes the peel. The facial peel itself, like with a traditional chemical peel, works to reveal a fresh layer of skin and provide nourishment to your face. When the laser hits this new skin, it creates skin that looks healthier and more youthful. 

The combined efforts of PRP, chemical peels, and laser technology come together to offer a unique skincare treatment in Seattle. To schedule a consultation with a master esthetician at PRP in Seattle, call us at 206-279-2112 or contact us online.

Skin Benefits Of Platelet Rich Plasma

By | PRP Skin Care

Platelet rich plasma, or PRP, has become one of the leading skin treatments in the past few years. In 2020, this plasma will continue to take over the beauty and cosmetic industries. PRP offers many benefits when used in esthetic skin treatments. 


Most commonly, PRP is used for those who suffer from deep acne scarring. Platelet rich plasma stimulates collagen and elastin production which can help fill in the pits of boxcar acne scarring. Collagen and elastin are important proteins for your skin and contribute to the growth of new skin when healing a wound. Esthetic procedures utilizing PRP helps instigate this process and correct damaged skin. 


Additionally, PRP can help improve the overall tone and texture of your skin. Again, using it’s powerful regenerative properties, PRP stimulates the production of renewed skin. While this can help fill in acne scarring, it can also generally enhance your skin quality. Adding PRP to a procedure like microneedling, can improve and prolong your results.
