Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) from Manhattan Dermatology Specialists

Dr. Susan Bard

Dr. Susan Bard


Platelet rich plasma therapy, or PRP, is a treatment we offer in our Dermatology clinic in NYC that relies on your own blood. PRP treatment is used for treating age-related wrinkles. A PRP injection can also stop hair loss. PRP therapy complements a number of cosmetic procedures. Talk to your Manhattan dermatologist, Dr. Bard about a platelet rich plasma injection and how it might benefit you.

Platelet Rich Plasma
Celebrities seem to be chasing a trendy new treatment in cosmetic dermatology called PRP injections. Because your Manhattan dermatologist has vowed to stay up-to-date on the latest techniques, you now can receive platelet rich plasma injection treatments right here in New York City.

Platelet rich plasma therapy is not just a trend, either. It’s a proven treatment that relies on your own body for a constant supply of healing protein found in your blood. Platelet rich plasma injection treatment, often referred to as just PRP, when provided by a top dermatologist in Manhattan, is successfully being used to treat conditions such as:

  • Scars
  • Acne scars
  • Wrinkles
  • Volume loss
  • Hair Loss
The Ongoing Role of Platelets
Platelet rich plasma used in injections for cosmetic reasons is the same material that’s been successfully used by pain management physicians since the beginning of the 21st century. While the technique is still new to many physicians in various fields of medicine, more and more doctors are finding constructive uses for the all-natural substance. The plasma forms the liquid in your blood. Platelets are the blood components that are used for clotting.

Proteins by the hundreds are inherent in the platelets, many of which are called “growth factors.” The growth factors in your blood play an important role in self-healing; they automatically heal your soft tissue and your joints. When taken from your system and injected into damaged joints and soft tissues in other parts of your body, PRP treatment becomes a safe alternative to harsher chemicals and surgery.

In the past, PRP injections have successfully been used to treat:

  • Back pain
  • Tendonitis
  • Ligament and muscle injuries
  • Chronic neck pain
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Torn rotator cuffs
The Perfect Cosmetic Adjunct
PRP therapy now serves as a treatment for many of the cosmetic flaws you may be looking to correct. It also works well in conjunction with numerous treatments your cosmetic dermatologist already offers, including:

  • Neuromodulators
  • Fillers
  • Laser treatments
  • Microneedling
  • Facial rejuvenation
  • Body contouring
When performed by a trained expert, PRP treatment is completely safe. It provides exceptional benefits when used in conjunction with other aesthetic procedures. The platelets found in your own blood can so dramatically improve your appearance, you’d think that your face had gone through a real-life Photoshop.

A New Hair Loss Treatment
In 2017, one of the newest uses for a plasma rich platelet injection is to treat hair loss. The PRP therapy may counteract the effect that dihydrotestosterone (DHT) has on the hairs on your head with the DHT receptor. It also resets the follicles and, in some cases, reverses your rapid loss of hair. At the very least, the regenerative treatment prevents further hair loss. If you’re curious about using PRP therapy to treat hair loss, ask your Manhattan dermatologist about it.
