Hair loss and skin concerns such as sun damage, aging, and general dullness are topics that are brought up often at our practice. While there are invasive treatments and prescription medications that can help with many of these problems, often our patients are seeking a more natural approach to hair loss and skin revitalization.
At Vibrant Dermatology, we offer PRP treatments, a naturally derived and non-invasive treatment that can solve many of these problems at their root. Directed by Dr. Joyce Imahiyerobo-Ip and Marissa-Leavitt, PA-C, we create customized plans to not only improve your appearance but also revitalize your skin and hair from the inside out, boosting the overall health of both.
What Is PRP?
PRP stands for platelet-rich plasma, a component of your own blood that’s rich in growth factors. These growth factors play a key role in healing and regeneration, making PRP injections a natural avenue for skin rejuvenation and potential hair restoration. In the PRP treatment process, a small blood sample is drawn from you, processed to isolate the platelet-rich plasma, and then reintroduced into targeted areas. This approach aims to accelerate natural healing mechanisms, offering a unique solution for various skin and hair concerns.
The Benefits of PRP Treatments
Promotes Hair Growth
If you’re dealing with hair thinning or loss, PRP treatments can help. The growth factors present in PRP can stimulate dormant hair follicles, leading to the potential for increased hair growth over time.
Improves Skin Texture
Looking to enhance your skin’s overall texture? The growth factors in PRP can stimulate collagen production, providing a smoother and more refined surface to your skin.
Reduces Fine Lines and Wrinkles
Aging inevitably brings fine lines and wrinkles, but PRP can act as a countermeasure. The treatment encourages collagen and elastin production, which can result in diminished appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
For those struggling with scars, PRP therapy provides a promising option. By accelerating your skin’s healing capabilities, PRP therapy aims to minimize the visibility of scars, making them less noticeable.
A healthier complexion is just another benefit to consider. PRP treatment assists in improving the balance of your skin tone, leading to a more uniform complexion.
Revitalizes Dull Skin
Lifeless, dull skin can be re-energized through PRP treatment. By promoting cell turnover and stimulating collagen, PRP aims to bring back the vitality your skin may be lacking.
Our PRP Treatments
PRP for Skin Rejuvenation
In the PRP for skin rejuvenation treatment, platelet-rich plasma is carefully injected into specific areas of concern on your face, neck, or other regions where skin improvement is desired. The goal of these injections is not only to stimulate collagen production but also to accelerate your skin’s self-healing abilities by using its own biological material. Over time, you may notice an improvement in your skin’s texture, a reduction in fine lines, and a more radiant, rejuvenated appearance.
PRP for Hair Restoration
When it comes to PRP for hair loss, the PRP injections are administered directly into the scalp, particularly in areas where hair thinning or loss is most prominent. The growth factors in PRP aim to awaken dormant hair follicles, potentially promoting new hair growth and strengthening existing strands for thicker hair. This treatment is an autologous option for those seeking to address hair loss without the use of medications or surgical interventions.
Why Choose PRP Treatments?

- Cost-Effective: In many cases, PRP treatments can be more affordable than surgical options.

Frequently Asked Questions About Our PRP Treatments
What Can I Expect From My PRP Treatment?
During your PRP treatment, the first step involves drawing a small amount of your blood. This blood sample is then placed in a centrifuge to separate the platelet-rich plasma from the other components. The isolated PRP is then injected back into the targeted areas, whether it’s your scalp for hair restoration or facial areas for skin rejuvenation.
How Many PRP Sessions Will I Need?
The number of sessions you may need varies depending on your individual goals and the condition being treated. A series of three or more treatments may be recommended to help you get the best results from your platelet-rich plasma. A consultation is our way of creating a treatment plan specific to your concerns.
How Long Does a PRP Treatment Session Last?
A standard PRP therapy session usually takes about 60 to 90 minutes from start to finish. This includes the time for blood draw, centrifuge processing, and the injection itself.
How Fast Will I See Results From a PRP Treatment?
The time frame for visible results can vary based on the area being treated and individual response to the PRP for skin rejuvenation or hair restoration. Some people notice changes as early as a few weeks, while others may need a few months to see noticeable improvement.
