If you’d like to achieve a younger look without surgery or fillers, call or schedule a consultation online with Robert Milanes, MD, to find out more about PRP treatments today.
Platelet-rich plasma, or PRP, is derived from your own blood. Platelets are the component of your blood that allows it to clot and heal your wounds, and they’re derived and concentrated to create PRP.
PRP contains growth factors that promote regeneration and youthfulness when applied to your skin. It can also promote hair growth in bald spots. If you have injuries, PRP helps to speed up the healing process.
PRP can treat a variety of conditions and unwanted features, most of which come with age. These include:
During an initial consultation, Dr. Milanes assesses your goals, needs, and habits to determine if PRP treatments are your best option. Then, he works with you to choose which treatment can be most effective for you.
Luminary MD offers several treatments that use PRP to achieve optimal results. You can choose:
Microneedling is a procedure used to reduce the appearance of scars, acne, wrinkles, and other skin conditions.
During the procedure, tiny needles prick your skin with minimal discomfort. Each prick stimulates the production of collagen, a protein produced by your body to give your skin structure, vivacity, and elasticity.
Vampire facials, also known as PRP facials, involve microneedling coupled with PRP derived from your own blood. After the microneedling, Dr. Milanes spreads the PRP across your face to promote a youthful complexion and fresh, healthy cells.
The O Shot™, also known as the orgasm shot, uses extracted PRP that Dr. Milanes injects into your vaginal area. It can treat urinary incontinence, vaginal dryness, pain during sex, and other vaginal issues.
Platelet-rich fibrin matrix (PRFM) treatments restore volume to a sunken face and fill the lines and wrinkles that come with age. PRFM contains a higher volume of platelets than regular PRP.
PRP can be used to treat hair loss or baldness. After your blood is drawn and the PRP is extracted from it, your provider injects it into the areas of your scalp that lack hair. The PRP restores blood flow to your follicles, encouraging them to supply your hair with nutrients and promote its growth. PRP works best for hair loss when combined with other hair restoration treatments.
