We use PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) in our practice to soften fine lines, wrinkles, texture, and tone of skin all while boosting your bodies own collagen and elastin in the area. Adding the PRP helps with faster healing time, essentially turbocharging your treatment and results. The goal of PRP therapy is to resolve pain through healing, it could prove to have lasting results. Initial improvement may be seen within a few weeks, gradually increasing as the healing progresses. Research studies and clinical practice have shown PRP therapy to be very effective at relieving pain and returning patients to their normal lives. Both ultrasound and MRI studies have shown definitive tissue repair after PRP therapy, confirming the benefits of this healing process. The need for surgery can also be greatly reduced by treating injured tissues before the damage progresses and the condition is irreversible.
PRP Is Commonly Used With:
- Hair restoration

"I had surgery just one week ago with Dr Haydon. I don't put alot of weight on Yelp reviews but after seeing the previous ones I feel like I wanted to tell everyone just how great my surgery is going. I had an implant exchange with a lift and liposuction on my abdomen and back. Its still not quite a week postop, but I couldn't be happier. I am sore and very black and blue but already the results exceeded my expectations. His staff is wonderful and his ambulatory center is state of the art. Can't wait to be fully healed"- H.G. / Yelp / May 23, 2018

We obtain the PRP by first drawing your blood and using the centrifuge to separate the plasma from your red blood cells. The plasma can then be used in addition to several services that we offer here like micro needling, halo, diva, oshot, hair restoration, and injections. For the PRP facial, we start by applying the PRP topically to the skin and perform micro needling over the area to create microchannels.
PRP stimulates collagen growth for facial rejuvenation that helps to improve wrinkles, puffiness under the eyes, as well as enhancing the overall skin tone, texture, and elasticity. Patients may experience mild swelling, redness, and bruising for the first 1-3 days after the procedure. Improvements to the skin usually appear 3-4 weeks after treatment and can last 6-18 months.
