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
"Dr. Gorman and his staff are absolutely amazing! They are genuinely nice people and go above and beyond to answer all your questions and make you feel comfortable with getting your surgery. I have never been at a doctor's office that is so warm and inviting. I am so glad I found Dr. Gorman and highly recommend him. I would also like to recommend Lauren for your Botox needs. She is absolutely amazing and so sweet and gentle. I love her so much! Thank you Dr. Gorman and staff! Y'all are the best!"- M.W. / Facebook / Feb 06, 2017
"Dr. Gorman and his staff are wonderful. I was very anxious before my first appointment. I had implants in 1982 and really had no problems with them until some pain in 2017. I was nervous that they would be shocked that I had not had them replaced in all those years but instead from the moment I walked in the office I was put at ease....everyone made me feel that it was no big deal and they would take care of me. And that’s exactly what they did. I’ve waited 3 months to write this review I wanted to see if ‘the honeymoon’ was over....quite the contrary I am happier than ever. My surgery was beyond my expectations. I feel like one of the family....Dr. Gorman, Margaret, Megan, Lauren, and Helen have all been wonderful taking care of all my beauty needs."- G.B. / Google / Jul 26, 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.
