The PRP procedure components work to minimize lines and wrinkles, initiate collagen to produce firmer, suppler skin, and tighten and tone overall facial skin; it can also promote hair growth.

"I can’t recommend Dr. Ho and his staff enough. He is the only person I have trusted to touch my face with injections or fillers. He always keeps you looking natural but just like a better you! I don’t want to look like I’m "trying" too hard! I want to look like best version of me for my age. Recently I did a series of 3 Plasma Pen treatments. I am very happy with the results. He says I will continue to see results for a few months as things tighten and the collagen does its work. There was very minimal downtime involved and no pain. Within a few days I could cover the area with makeup and go about my business. All in all I highly recommend this treatment."- T.D. / Yelp / Apr 29, 2021

am i a candidate for prp therapy?
During a consultation, a medical professional will help determine if PRP procedures are right for you in order to achieve your goals. The ideal candidates for PRP injection therapy:
- Have aged skin with lines and wrinkles
- Want to tighten and tone their skin
- Want firmer, suppler skin
- Desire a natural look
- Prefer a nonsurgical approach for rejuvenated skin
- Desire increased hair density in the scalp
how does a prp procedure work?
With the PRP procedure, the medical professional will draw a small amount of blood from the patient. The blood will then be put into a centrifuge, where it will be spun around to separate out the platelets and other growth factors. These concentrated components become the PRP injection, or platelet-rich plasma, that will be injected into the face or scalp. The in-office procedure takes about 15 minutes to complete. The procedure is well-tolerated and minimal aftercare is needed. Patients should be able to resume normal activities immediately.
What is Suneva Medical HD PRP?
While PRP therapy can be an effective strategy in combating aging, not all treatments are created equal. In order to be as effective as possible, treatments must have increasingly high volumes and levels of PRP. Not only does Suneva® Medical HD PRP meet these standards of quality, but it is also able to streamline the entire procedure, making it the fastest and most productive treatment option available. From start to finish, the entire process is usually completed in about 20 minutes, which allows you to return to your day almost immediately. High-definition PRP injection therapy can be an excellent choice as a standalone procedure but is also used to complement other treatments.
how soon do you see results after a prp procedure?
After a PRP injection treatment, a patient might experience some redness, mild swelling, or bruising that usually subsides within 1 – 3 days. Since the PRP procedure uses the patient’s own blood, there is a low chance of adverse effects. Patients should see visible results of diminished lines and wrinkles, smaller pores, tightened skin, and improved tone and texture within 3 – 4 weeks after treatment. The results from PRP injections for PRP hair restoration take longer. The skin will continue to improve over time. For the best results, most patients need three treatments that are usually spaced out 1 – 2 months apart; patients undergoing injections for hair loss may require more treatment sessions.
To enhance the results of skin rejuvenation, some patients add microneedling to the procedure. Microneedling allows the platelet-rich plasma to reach further into the skin for maximum results.
PRP Therapy FAQ
How much does PRP therapy cost?
Total costs for PRP therapy will be dependent on the size of the area being treated, plus if it is performed with another cosmetic procedure. Your practitioner will give you an estimated cost in your initial consultation and discuss all your payment options.
How long do results from PRP therapy last?
Visible results from PRP therapy may last for 4 – 8 weeks. The results will vary with every person and will depend on where the treatment is used. One of the advantages of this procedure is that it doesn't require surgery or a long recovery period and is more affordable.
What are the risks and complications of PRP therapy?
Possible side effects for PRP therapy on its own are minor and include prolonged bruising and swelling. When microneedling is performed with PRP therapy, potential risks include infection, mild scarring, delayed healing, and pigmentation changes. That’s you should have cosmetic treatments done by an experienced technician who has studied the process.
Will PRP help replenish volume?
PRP therapy does not add volume in areas like your cheeks and lips. While PRP treatments offer stunning results since it rejuvenates your complexion and help promote the production of collagen and elastin, it is not meant to increase volume. If you would like to contour areas on the face, you may be a better candidate for dermal fillers.
Is PRP therapy painful?
Injections of PRP serum feel similar to a BOTOX® or dermal filler injection with the additional step of drawing blood to get the plasma. Generally, patients will feel a mild pinch or pressure during the injection. If you are nervous about feeling pain, request local anesthesia.
