Is PRP Right for Me?

Is PRP Right for Me?

As medical and aesthetic sciences have advanced, we’ve discovered more and more treatment options to move us toward our wellness and cosmetic goals. Interestingly, a lot of the latest treatments don’t rely on advanced technology or synthetic solutions. Instead, they harness our bodies’ own regenerative power to drive results. 

That’s particularly true with platelet-rich plasma (PRP), a leading-edge treatment for healing injuries and treating pain, as well as rejuvenating skin and regrowing hair. To give you access to this exciting, natural-based option, Dr. Peymon Zarreii offers PRP hair and skin treatment here at our Zarreii Medical and Aesthetics office in Delray Beach, Florida. 

Is it right for you? Let’s look more closely to help you find out. 

What PRP can do

PRP is a versatile treatment that can be applied to virtually any part of your body to drive regeneration there. Here at Zarreii Medical and Aesthetics, Dr. Zarreii provides:

PRP microneedling facial rejuvenation

By blending PRP with microneedling, another treatment that stimulates regeneration in your skin, Dr. Zarreii can address a broad range of cosmetic concerns — without the need for invasive surgery.

A PRP microneedling facial triggers your skin’s healing processes while giving it resources to support the creation of new, healthy, younger-looking skin cells. At the same time, this treatment encourages your skin to create new collagen, the protein that keeps it smooth and taut through the years. 

In other words, this facial gives you a way to fight aging and get glowing skin, all without any invasive procedures or synthetic injections. 

PRP hair restoration

Because PRP triggers regeneration wherever it’s applied, it can be a powerful way to reawaken dormant hair follicles. It also increases blood supply throughout your scalp. This helps to support hair follicles that are still active, encouraging them to grow thicker, healthier-looking shafts of hair. 

How PRP works

If you’re looking for more radiant skin or a fuller head of hair, PRP could be right for you. But before you make that decision for yourself, you might be wondering how it works.

The PRP treatment process starts with Dr. Zarreii taking a very small sample of your blood. He then places that into a centrifuge, allowing him to separate the platelets from the other components of your blood.

Platelets play a key part of your body’s natural healing response. Whenever you’re injured, for example, your body directs platelets to the area. They contain growth factors that help to repair damage and generate new cells. 

By creating a concentrated plasma rich in platelets, Dr. Zarreii harnesses that healing power. He then injects it into strategic locations on your face after microneedling (for the facial) or across your scalp (for hair restoration). 

At that point, your body goes to work, using the platelets to develop new, healthy cells in the area and repair damage. Ultimately, PRP treatment is a completely natural way to help yourself look your best.

If you think PRP might be right for you, don’t hesitate to make an appointment with Dr. Zarreii. To get started, contact Zarreii Medical and Aesthetics by calling our office or requesting your appointment online today.
