What is High Concentration PRP?
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) is a concentrated preparation of platelets and growth factors in a small volume of plasma. Platelets are a natural source of a number of growth factors in their natural and biologically-determined ratios. PRP is obtained by phlebotomy (drawing of blood from your arm, just like when you get labs drawn) using a specialized collection kit.
How it Works
Upon activation, platelets release growth factors and other molecules. These growth factors are regeneration-promoting signaling molecules, such as Platelet-Derived Growth Factor (PDGF), Transforming Growth Factor group (TGF), Epidermal Growth Factor (EGF), Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor (VEGF), Fibroblast Growth Factor (FGF) and others. These molecules are shown to regulate the healing cascade, including inflammation and cell proliferation.
What is Better about High Concentration?
High Concentration Plasma delivers a more potent volume of platelets and growth factors. This allows you to receive a more advanced treatment with better results and fewer side effects.

What areas can be treated with High Concentration Plasma?
Common areas treated with High Concentration Plasma include the scalp (restores natural, healthy hair growth), the face (restores volume under the eyes, in the cheeks and naso-labial folds) and for a natural breast lift! If you have other concerns, you can certainly discuss these during your consultation.
Who is a good candidate for High Concentration Plasma?
Because the plasma is obtained by drawing the patient's own blood, almost everyone is a good candidate for this procedure! However, if you have platelets that do not function properly, low platelets, any type of blood disorder, bruise easily or take blood thinners, you should discuss the treatment with your healthcare provider first. We offer many alternatives if this treatment is not ideal for you.
