Rejuvenate Your Skin and Stimulate Hair Growth with Your Own Plasma
As we age and experience hormonal changes, or as a result of genetics, our face, body, and hair can change in unexpected ways. Our eyes and cheeks can appear sunken in. We develop vertical lines around our mouth, commonly mistaken for “smokers’ lines”. Our hands start looking bony and our buttocks flatten. We experience thinning hair, receding hairlines, and bald spots. All of these changes are a result of lost fat, lost tissue, and declining growth factors.
At Chernoff Cosmetic Surgery in Santa Rosa, CA, Dr. Greg Chernoff offers Platelet Rich Plasma and Fibrin (PRP and PRF) and Biotin infused PRP to help turn back the clocks on your face, body, hair, and complexion without surgery or downtime! This procedure uses your body’s plasma to help prevent hair loss, create healthy hair growth, and regenerate and restore healthy skin, anywhere on the face and body. PRP treatments can also help prevent some aging before it begins.
Clinical research demonstrates that our own Platelet Rich Plasma and Fibrin have the power to heal and regenerate tissue in all areas of our body. PRP and PRF treatment uses your own platelets, rich in growth factors, to generate new collagen and blood supply. The treatments help to repair and regenerate damaged skin and reverse the signs of aging. PRP infused with Biotin is a natural and effective treatment to regenerate healthy new hair growth and prevent hair loss. Biotin (Vitamin B7) stimulates keratin production and the rate of follicle growth.
Prior to any treatment or procedure, Dr. Chernoff or one of our trained and certified Health Care Providers determine if you are a candidate, review the risks and benefits, and provide all possible treatment alternatives.
What Is Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) / Platelet Rich Platelet (PRF)
Platelet Rich Plasma or Fibrin (PRP / PRF) is an all-natural anti-aging solution that can remedy the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles as well as improve skin texture. PRP and PRF are created within a small sample of blood withdrawn from you at the time of your appointment.
Research demonstrates that our own Platelet Rich Plasma and Fibrin have the power to heal and regenerate tissue in all areas of our body. Platelets are the cells in the blood that help tissue to heal and grow new cells. When Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is applied topically to specific areas of the skin, it promotes your own collagen growth and naturally soothes and tightens the skin. Studies document that PRP softens sun damage and other aging skin issues.
What Is A Growth Factor?
A growth factor is a naturally occurring substance capable of stimulating cellular growth, proliferation, and cellular repair. Our bodies produce natural growth factors. They are found in high concentrations in our own fat and our own blood/platelets. Growth factors in our fat and Platelet Rich Plasma or Fibrin (PRP or PRF) can help prevent and improve our aging skin and underlying tissue. We are able to separate growth factors by separating our red blood cells from our platelet-rich plasma.
How Is Platelet Rich Plasma (PRF) / Platelet Rich Platelet (PRF) Prepared?
Once the sample has been taken, it is inserted and spun in a centrifuge. Blood plasma, white and red blood cells, and other growth properties bond as the sample spins, creating the PRP formula. The PRP solution is purified and the platelets are preserved, creating PRP and PRF.
PRP / PRF is a safe procedure since it uses your own blood. PRF rejuvenation may be good for men and women who desire an all-natural, non-surgical treatment to address and correct age lines and uneven skin texture. Dr. Chernoff and his professional staff will evaluate your medical history in order to determine if you may be a potential candidate for this revolutionary anti-aging treatment.
Why does Chernoff Cosmetic Surgery offer PRP with Biotin for Hair Growth & Health?
We use Platelet Rich Plasma with Biotin to provide the best possible stimulation for hair follicles. The PRP with Biotin supports a steady release of growth factors over a 7–10-day period. Biotin (Vitamin B7) stimulates keratin production and the rate of follicle growth.
What Results Can You Expect?
- PRP / PRF Skin
Since PRP comes from your own body the results vary for each person. Our patients have noticeable improvement in the tone, texture, and overall quality of their skin. They have been impressed with the results. Results begin to show 3-4 weeks after the treatment session and continue to improve with time. 1-6 treatment sessions are generally required for optimal results.
- PRP / PRF Hair
For PRP hair restoration, patients can see results in 2-3 months. More prominent results are reported 6 months after treatment. Typically, a series of treatments must be performed for optimal results.
Can PRP Be Combined With Other Procedures?
PRP and PRF can be combined with a variety of treatments and procedures to enhance results. Many patients combine PRP with laser skin tightening, laser skin rejuvenation or microneedling to enhance the results by the growth factors applied topically to the skin. This process improves the overall quality, tightness, and texture of their skin.
Patients can also improve the thickness and health of their hair with PRF applied topically to the scalp. Ask Dr. Chernoff how PRP / PRF can help you with your skin rejuvenation and hair renewal goals.
