WHAT IS PRP?
PRP therapy is when your platelet-rich plasma is inserted below the skin’s surface. This stimulates collagen and elastin production. PRP therapy is ideal for people with fine lines and wrinkles around the eye, but can be used anywhere you may need rejuvenation.

PRP FOR HAIR LOSS
If you are searching for a non-surgical, minimally invasive hair loss treatment, call our office at Cross Hudson Plastic Surgery! Dr. Mordkovich offers PRP hair restoration treatments alone or in combination with your hair transplant. PRP for hair loss uses your body’s platelet-rich plasma to re-engage your hair follicles and move them into the active growth phase. Since PRP Therapy uses your body’s own plasma, there is no risk of rejection or side effects that can be typically seen in other treatments. Depending on the extent of hair loss, one or more treatments may be required. PRP Therapy tends to be most effective with thinning hair from male/female pattern baldness as opposed to areas where hair has completely fallen out.
PRP THERAPY VS MICRONEEDLING
Both PRP Therapy and Microneedling use very fine needles which are inserted under your skin’s surface. When used together, they are an effective combination for skin rejuvenation.
PRP Therapy involves taking a small sample of your blood, spinning it in a centrifuge, and reinserting just the platelet rich plasma to promote the production of collagen and elastin. Results of PRP Therapy typically last 12 to 18 months.
Microneedling works by penetrating the top layers of your skin with tiny needles to create pinpoint “injuries” into the deeper layers of the skin. Microneedling stimulates your body’s natural healing process, and promotes the formation of new collagen and elastin. Results of this process typically last 1 to 3 months.
RECOVERY FROM PRP
PRP Therapy is a relatively painless treatment, however, you may experience some discomfort and redness in the areas treated for up to 48 hours. As your skin heals, you will notice a restored radiance and glow that improves over the next few weeks.
