Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)

Skin rejuvenation using platelet-rich plasma (PRP) at our Mississauga clinic can help reverse damage caused by sun exposure, improve the look of wrinkles, and may even tighten skin with very little downtime. PRP therapy uses a patient's own blood and has an established track record of success in sports medicine, plastic surgery, and dermatology.

Another widely popular application for PRP is stimulating hair growth. For both men and women who are starting to notice hair thinning and loss associated with age, PRP has been shown in studies to improve hair re-growth, with noticeable improvement in thickness and improved hair volume.

We can use PRP therapy to improve the skin's tone and texture in virtually all areas of the face and décolletage. It's especially effective under the eyes, around the mouth, and in the cheeks. You can expect to see results about 3 weeks after your first treatment. We recommend 2 to 3 treatment sessions scheduled about a month apart to get the maximum benefits of PRP therapy.

A Better PRP Treatment

  • Technology – Dr. Weinberg uses the a double-syringe system that safely and efficiently prepares platelet-rich plasma using a small sample of the patient's blood.
  • Options – PRP skin rejuvenation therapy can be used as a stand-alone treatment or Dr. Weinberg can combine it with complementary procedures such as laser skin treatments, fillers, or BOTOX® Cosmetic.
  • Expertise – Dr. Weinberg and his team of aesthetic specialists are highly trained to perform a range of skin rejuvenation procedures safely and effectively. PRP at our practice is only performed after an evaluation with Dr. Weinberg and is performed under his instructions by our registered nurse.

Dr. Michael J. Weinberg is a Royal College certified plastic surgeon, and is committed to helping you achieve a youthful and vibrant appearance.

What Is PRP Therapy?

Blood cells called platelets have growth factors that help tissue heal and prompt the growth of new cells. Team doctors in professional sports use PRP to speed up the healing process for injured athletes. In the world of aesthetics, injecting PRP creates firmer skin, thanks to increased collagen production, and restores the skin's elasticity by increasing elastin.

The PRP Therapy Procedure

We use the Arthrex ACP Double-Syringe system that ensures an efficient and sterile treatment. Using the system, we can obtain the blood sample, spin it in a centrifuge to create plasma rich in platelets, and then use an inner syringe to inject the PRP. Patients experience virtually no discomfort during the procedure, but may feel some soreness during the first few days after getting PRP therapy. We recommend avoiding strenuous exercise for a couple of days.

Combining Treatments

Many patients can benefit from combining PRP with anti-wrinkle treatments such as dermal fillers. Injectable fillers such as JUVÉDERM® and Restylane® address different concerns than those treated with PRP. Fillers target specific lines and folds, while PRP improves overall skin quality. PRP treatments can also enhance the results of laser skin rejuvenation procedures. For hair loss, PRP may be combined with other therapies, such as oral agents and topical medications and shampoos.
