At Skin Laser & Surgery Specialists, we use platelet rich plasma as a completely biocompatible rejuvenating treatment. Platelet rich plasma (PRP) is found in your own blood and promotes healing and blood clotting—because of this, it has been used in the medical field for many years to cultivate healing in patients. Due to its healing properties, it can also be used to rejuvenate aging skin or even scalp that is beginning to lose hair.

PRP: Rejuvenation with your body’s own platelets

The first step in PRP rejuvenation is drawing your blood. We then use a centrifuge to spin out the platelets from the red blood cells. Once we have isolated the platelets, they are then carefully re-injected into the target area where rejuvenation is needed. The platelets then go to work promoting cellular growth and repair, which cosmetically corrects wrinkles and fine lines, as well as skin elasticity and hair growth.

How do we use PRP to improve skin tightening?

With a myriad of benefits to its credit, PRP is also known for triggering collagen production, which improves skin tightening around the injection site. PRP is often used medically to speed the healing of tendons, ligaments and muscles. Those same properties can be applied to the skin, renewing not only skin elasticity, but overall appearance as well. Skin Laser & Surgery Specialists offer a PRP facial in NYC & NJ.

Can PRP really improve hair growth?

If you are suffering the results of mild hair loss, platelet rich plasma rejuvenation may be the answer. Its remarkable healing properties can even be applied to failing follicles, improving the strength and thickness of the strands. In using PRP for hair regrowth, you may need multiple injections to ensure an effective result. In some cases, you may opt to use local anesthesia to improve comfort during treatment. You and your dermatologist will thoroughly work out all details prior to treatment.

What are the steps of PRP rejuvenation?

  • First, a small amount of blood is drawn—similar to any standard blood test.
  • The harvested blood is placed in a centrifuge and spun down, allowing the platelets to separate from the red blood cells.
  • The pure PRP is re-injected into the target area, whether the skin or the scalp. This lasts approximately 15 minutes.

More details about the procedure:

  • The injection process is virtually painless for the patient, however, we may opt to use local anesthesia if you prefer.
  • The procedure is fairly casual, with no post-procedure medical monitoring required.
  • Because the platelets come from your own blood, there is almost no danger of an adverse reaction.
  • There will be some mild redness or swelling following the procedure which should resolve in one to two days.

A message from Dr. David Goldberg and the team at Skin Laser & Surgery Specialists of NY & NJ:

Dear Patients,

Our providers and staff recognize that we are all faced with difficult times as this pandemic continues to unfold throughout our area. However, the continuation of your care remains our top priority!

At this time, our New York City office is temporarily closed.

In our effort to provide you with the highest level of service, the Hackensack and Hillsborough NJ offices will remain open until further notice with limited hours of availability. We ask for your understanding with our protocols on hand washing and social distancing when you arrive for your appointment. Please do not come to the office if you are experiencing a cough, fever, shortness of breath, or other symptoms associated with COVID-19.

Should you prefer not to visit the office in person, our providers are now offering virtual office visits. This is commonly known as telemedicine, or in this case, teledermatology. Our dedicated concierge team will assist you in scheduling a virtual appointment with your provider, including those in the New York City office.

Currently, the government mandates that the only way to have these virtual visits is to communicate via FaceTime, Skype, Zoom, or WhatsApp video. This is because your medical providers needs to see you, and you can show the provider the problem area of your body that you are concerned about. You will also be able to discuss any other issues regarding your ongoing care or for any new skin concerns you may have. Your provider may tell you that an in-person visit may be required for testing or more in-depth examination. In that case, a concierge team member will reach out to schedule an in-office visit.

To schedule your in-person or virtual appointment, please call our office at 908-359-8980 or email [email protected] Our concierge team members will schedule a time for your medical provider to call you back. We have set aside times for all of our medical providers to call you for your virtual appointment.

Please be aware that virtual visits must be billed to your medical health insurance just as they would for an in-person office visit. If your insurance has recently changed, please have that information ready to provide to our team members. Depending on your insurance plan, you may have financial obligations such as co-pays, deductibles, and co-insurance just as you would for an in-office visit (at the present time, the government has only waived co-pays related to COVID-19 testing).

We understand that this is a stressful time, but we are here for you!

Stay safe and healthy,

Dr. David Goldberg and the team at Skin Laser & Surgery Specialists of NY & NJ
