PRP Q & A

Orchid Aesthetics Medical Spa

What are platelet-rich plasma injections?

PRP is a concentrated form of plasma, containing a high volume of platelets. The concentrated serum is made from a sample of your own blood. The Orchid Aesthetics staff uses a centrifuge to separate the plasma and the platelets from your blood cells and then prepares the PRP serum.

Dr. Kerns injects this serum into the treatment area as part of a regenerative protocol for your unique needs. In most cases, the effects of PRP injections last 18-24 months.

How do platelet-rich plasma injections work?

PRP includes growth factors and stem cell proteins that encourage new cell growth. PRP stimulates your body’s natural healing response, helping to rejuvenate and revitalize your problem areas.

Dr. Kerns injects PRP into your body’s tissues to rebuild your skin and tissues naturally. PRP encourages natural collagen production, which adds volume to further firm your skin and build elasticity. This reduces the appearance of imperfections and improves blood flow to the area.

What types of things can platelet-rich plasma injections help?

Cosmetic imperfections

PRP treatments are designed to reduce the appearance of fine lines and scarring to improve your skin tone and texture. It also improves loss of volume in the skin to restore youthful fullness and elasticity.

Hair loss

PRP can stimulate hair follicles to improve hair regrowth. It’s a successful and cost-effective alternative to traditional treatment with minoxidil and finasteride.

Male rejuvenation

A specialized PRP formulation called P-Shot® can treat erectile dysfunction and heighten sexual satisfaction.

Female rejuvenation

For women, the PRP formulation O-Shot® can reduce vaginal dryness and painful sexual intercourse to regain or improve female orgasm.

Fat injections

PRP utilizes your own fat cells and platelets as fillers to smooth fine lines and wrinkles. PRP causes less bruising and longer-lasting results than other natural fillers.

What are the benefits of platelet-rich plasma injections?

PRP injections are a quick alternative treatment that delivers results similar to more invasive cosmetic treatments. In fact, most PRP injection sessions last only about an hour. Most patients return to their normal activities immediately after their treatment is over. Some mild swelling or redness is possible after injections, but these rare instances typically resolve within a few hours.
