What's the Difference Between PRP and High Def PRP?

Dr. Vu Ho


Double board-certified facial plastic surgeon Dr. Vu Ho offers the latest aesthetic treatments at Beyond Beautiful to men and women. Some of his most popular therapies include platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and high-density PRP (HD PRP) by SUNEVA® Medical. These solutions are widely known in both the medical and aesthetic industries for their natural regenerative properties. Both use a patient’s own blood supply to gather concentrated forms of essential proteins and minerals to rejuvenate the skin. If you want to refresh your appearance without undergoing a surgical procedure, contact our practice in Plano, TX to book a consultation.

What is plasma?

Our blood is made up of several components: red blood cells, white blood cells, platelets, and plasma. Simply put, plasma is the clear, liquid portion of the blood that remains once these elements are separated. Plasma is the largest part of human blood and consists of water, clotting factors (platelets), antibodies, nutrients, and proteins (albumin and fibrinogen). Plasma is responsible for carrying all parts of the blood throughout the body and helps remove waste.

What is PRP?

Platelet-rich plasma is the concentrated form of plasma. When blood is placed into a centrifuge machine, it separates the different components of the blood. This process is called plasmapheresis. It allows Dr. Ho to collect the nutrient-rich plasma.

What is HD PRP?

HD PRP is a highly concentrated form of platelet-rich plasma. It usually consists of roughly five times the normal level of plasma. This highly dense form of PRP provides a greater potency than lower levels of PRP. It also releases more growth factors over time for longer-lasting results.

What is HD PRP good for?

HD PRP is an excellent treatment option for men and women who want to:

  • Prompt collagen production for a more youthful and glowing profile
  • Diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Boost the overall health of their skin
  • Tighten mildly lax skin

How is PRP therapy performed?

When you visit Beyond Beautiful, we’ll have you sit comfortably in one of our private treatment rooms for your PRP treatment. One of your arms will then be gently cleaned with a cotton swab and antiseptic solution. Next, Dr. Ho will extract a small amount of blood with a sterile needle. Your blood will then be placed into a special machine that will spin and separate the different elements of the blood. This process only takes a few minutes. Then, Dr. Ho will draw the concentrated form of platelet-rich plasma and inject it into the target area. The most common treatment areas include the cheeks, jowls, forehead, and areas around the mouth.

Most patients experience little to no pain during treatment and will be free to get back to their usual activities once their procedure is complete.

I love Dr. Carruth and his staff! I’ve had a couple of procedures and have been very happy with the results! His staff always helps to ease my anxiety and make me feel very comfortable and he thoroughly explains the entire procedure and makes sure I understand. He truly cares about me and makes sure I’m 100% happy.

I am thrilled to share my exceptional experience with Dr. Brownlee's office! From the initial consultation to the post-operative care, Dr. Brownlee and her staff have demonstrated an unparalleled level of attention to detail and dedication to their patients. What sets Dr. Brownlee apart is her personal touch - she takes the time to meet with you individually for each visit, ensuring that you are informed and comfortable every step of the way. Her meticulous nature is evident in every aspect of her practice, from the thoroughness of her consultations to the precision of her surgical technique. I recently underwent surgery with Dr. Brownlee a few days ago, and I can already tell that I made the right decision in choosing her. Her genuine concern for her patients' well-being is palpable, and she went above and beyond by calling me personally the day after surgery to check in on my recovery. Having her personal number to reach out to with any questions or concerns has been incredibly reassuring. Dr. Brownlee's commitment to her patients is evident in every interaction, and I feel grateful to have her guiding me through this process. I highly recommend Dr. Brownlee to anyone considering plastic surgery - you will be in exceptional hands with her!
