When it comes to reducing the effects of aging, there are scores of options available to people. The trouble is, many of them require surgery and have long recovery times. Thankfully, PRP is an alternative treatment that has grown in popularity in recent years.
What is PRP?
PRP or “platelet-rich plasma” is a form of treatment that is both minimally-invasive and has little to no risk for infections and allergic reactions. PRP is a type of regenerative therapy that uses the body’s own blood.
Plasma is the liquid part of the blood and contains water, proteins, and growth healing functions. It’s also the catalyst for moving red and white blood cells throughout the body and accelerates the healing process for injured muscles, joints, tendons, and ligaments.
The Laser Skin Care Center comprises a cooperative team of dermatology specialists who are both skilled and fully qualified to deliver PRP treatments. Our dermatologists have received extensive training and accreditation from UCLA and UC Irvine. Based at a 13,000 square-foot treatment center, the Laser Skin Care Center offers comprehensive solutions for all your PRP treatment needs.
Available PRP Treatments
We offer two forms of PRP treatments: one for facial rejuvenation, and the other for hair restoration.
The facial rejuvenation treatments are customized to each patient’s specific needs. They address individual concerns and simultaneously restore younger, firmer-looking skin. The process uses PRP to create collagen and elastin, resulting in long-term anti-aging effects.
For hair restoration, PRP is ideal for combating the effects of early-onset hereditary hair loss. It’s a quick and straightforward procedure that can be used on both men and women experiencing thinning hair or hair loss.
When used for facial rejuvenation, PRP administered by injections can get delivered to precise areas on the face. It allows targeted areas to mimic surrounding tissue and create smooth, long-lasting, and firmer skin.
PRP Hair Restoration
Thinning and loss of hair is part of the aging process. The good news is those effects can get reduced with a simple three-step PRP hair restoration process. PRP gets injected into the scalp, resulting in improved hair quality and increased hair follicles.

Benefits of PRP
Compared to other cosmetic treatments, PRP or platelet-rich plasma treatments are minimally-invasive. The process involves drawing a small quantity of a patient’s blood and injecting it at targeted locations.
There is no surgery involved with PRP treatments, and the results are both exceptional and visible within one to two weeks. Most PRP treatments only take a few minutes, and there is minimal downtime involved (typically one to three days).
Am I a Candidate for PRP
Virtually everyone can enjoy the benefits of PRP treatments. Each treatment uses a patient’s own blood, reducing the risk of allergic reactions and infections. It’s also safe for use on all skin types, textures, and tones.
