PRP Injections in Mishawaka

Long Lasting Rejuvenation

Platelet rich plasma is derived from your body’s own blood. For a PRP injection at our Mishawaka clinic, a small amount of blood is drawn and placed in a centrifuge to separate the components of blood. Plasma and platelets are divided from the red and white blood cells, creating platelet-rich plasma or PRP.

Platelets are known to contain large quantities of growth factors which attract stem cells and stimulate the healing of damaged tissues. Clinical work over the last several years has established the safety and usefulness of platelet‐rich plasma (PRP) for tissue repair and healing.

PRP for Aesthetics

Since platelets help tissue heal and grow new cells, the PRP is injected into the specific areas of tissue the patient would like to rejuvenate. The PRP injection helps stimulate collagen production, regenerates tissue and ultimately smooths and tightens skin.

PRP injections are different compared to other injectables like Restylane and Juvederm which relies on Hyaluronic Acid to fill and plump fine lines.

While hyaluronic acid fillers can be used in conjunction with PRP, PRP can be used on areas of the skin that are not safe for Restylane and Juvederm. Other injectables are good for 6-18 months whereas PRP injections result in permanent changes to the body’s tissues and increased longevity of results.

Platelet Rich Plasma skin rejuvenation at our clinic in Mishawaka, Indiana aims to improve skin tone and texture, soften lines, tighten skin and reduce the appearance of scars, blemishes, or effects of trauma. Results usually show within 3-4 weeks after the treatment session and will continue to improve over time. There is no guarantee and sometimes additional treatments may be indicated.

PRP for Hair Growth

PRP stands for platelet rich plasma which is derived from a patient’s own blood. Once the blood is processed and separated, only enriched cells, or PRP remains. Since platelets are what help tissue heal and regenerate, it is now being utilized to help in numerous cosmetic applications

The PRP is injected into the scalp to help stimulate natural hair growth. Unlike other hair growth drugs, there is minimal risk. 

Because PRP injections involve the use of your body’s own platelets it virtually eliminates the risk of allergic reactions. There is minimal discomfort and downtime unlike receiving hair plugs or other costly hair treatments.

Results can usually be seen within the first two to eight months which is attributed to the growth cycle of the hair follicle itself. Treatments may need to be repeated and for best results combination therapy with red light therapy, hormone optimization and topical hair growth medications is recommended.
