PRP Treatments – For Scalp & For Face
Learn More About The PRP Treatments
Unlike the traditional uses of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections for muscle pain, in Miami, PRP injections are also for clients who are seeking solutions to revive their youthful beauty.
What Is PRP?
PRP or platelet-rich plasma is a natural substance in our bodies that has high regenerative potential and can promote cell repair and new tissue regeneration.
This treatment is wonderfully natural because PRP is a naturally occurring component in our blood. Platelets are cells in our circulatory system responsible for effective blood clotting. When a tissue injury occurs, platelets are some of the first responders in our bodies, recruited to prevent begin immediate healing at the site. In addition to their clotting function, platelets release several growth factors and proteins into the liquid plasma portion of the blood.
More specifically, these factors and proteins are called FGF, PDGF, TGF-β, EGF, VEGF and IGF and are necessary for signaling stem cells to migrate, proliferate and differentiate to support proper tissue repair and growth. Platelets also induce new extracellular matrix deposition and neo-vascularization (creation of new blood vessels) from fibroblasts and endothelial cells, respectively. This means incredible healing and health potential wherever it is placed which is why PROP has been used for many years in the medical world and is now a top beauty treatment around the world.
How Is PRP Collected?
At Body by Craft in Miami, PRP injections are prepared with the most efficient and safe methods possible. Our clinic prepares the client’s small blood sample with the A-PRP RegenKit® which has a very low level of contaminants and a high platelet recovery of over 80%.
We collect a 10mL blood sample ( 2 teaspoons) from the client for preparations. The blood is placed into a centrifuge machine that separates the blood into its components. Typically, 5-6mL of platelet-rich plasma is found as a distinguishable layer that can be collected and readied for injection.
PRP Treatment For Hair Growth
As we age, it’s very common for both men and women to experience hair loss. Although there are many options for treating significant hair loss, we offer Miami PRP treatment as a natural therapy with regenerative potential that can effectively stimulate new hair growth.
The application of PRP to the scalp stimulates the hair follicle environment, increases blood supply and enhances cell proliferation, resulting in the regeneration of hair for men and women. The induction of this natural process can lead to strengthened hair that is more vibrant, colorful and bright.
The use of PRP for treating hair loss can be combined with other procedures and medications to slow hair loss and/or restore hair growth.
PRP Treatment Process For Hair Loss
At Body by Craft, PRP treatment for hair loss is a three-step, minimally invasive and non-surgical procedure.
Step 1 – The client’s blood is drawn from the arm using the A-PRP RegenKit® and processed with a centrifuge. This machine separates the blood into its many components based on densities.
Step 2 – After undergoing centrifugation, the blood is separated into three distinctive layers: platelet-poor plasma, platelet-rich plasma and red blood cells.
Step 3 – The platelet-rich plasma layer is drawn up into a syringe and prepared for injection with tiny needles into the targeted areas of the scalp to increase hair growth. Don’t worry- topical numbing agents keep the procedure comfortable and easy.
This simple, three-step process of PRP therapy for regenerating hair growth is most effective when completed every 3 weeks in 3 sessions. Optimal and long-lasting results can be maintained with PRP treatments every 4-6 months after the initial therapy.

Side Effects Of Using PRP For Hair Loss
The greatest advantage of using PRP is that it is an autologous procedure as it involves the client’s own powerful healing substance and this eliminates the risk of communicable disease. However, as with any injection therapy, there are some possible but rare side effects that should be considered.
- Calcification at sites of injections
- Scar tissue formation at sites of injections
- Adverse reaction to anesthetic
Candidacy For Hair Loss Treatment With PRP
PRP treatments are generally suitable for most clients that are seeking a solution to their hair loss problems. However, it is important to report all medical conditions and medications to our enhancement team prior to any procedures to ensure that it is safe. We may recommend alternative treatments for hair loss if the following conditions apply.
- Blood thinner medications
- Heavy smoker
- History of alcohol or drug abuse
- Acute or chronic infections
- Chronic liver disease
- Chronic skin disease
- Hemodynamic instability
- Metabolic disorders
- Platelet dysfunction or low counts
- Thyroid disease
The Cost For PRP Therapy
Effective PRP therapy for restoring full, luscious hair requires 3 sessions, 3 weeks apart. The costs of these initial treatments can range between $1,500-3,500 and can vary depending on.
- Geographic location
- Quality of equipment and sample harvest

PRP Treatment For Facial Rejuvenation
The natural aging process not only leads to undesirable hair loss, but it undeniably causes the formation of wrinkles, fine lines and other facial features that give away our age. At Body by Craft, we can restore firmness, youth and beauty to the complexion with PRP treatments for facial rejuvenation purposes.
When our skin ages over time, there is an imbalance between the rate of destruction and rate of renewal of our cells and collagen. The correction of this imbalance with PRP leads to natural tissue regeneration, improved skin quality and elimination of fine lines.
Unlike dermal fillers, the idea behind PRP therapy for facial rejuvenation is not to fill in the wrinkles but rather to stimulate the production of new collagen and components of the extracellular matrix including hyaluronic acid and elastin from fibroblast cells. These products secreted by fibroblasts are responsible for the youthful appearance of the skin. When we age, our collagen production significantly decreases, leading to the formation of wrinkles and fine lines. Therefore, PRP treatment that induces collagen production can counteract this phenomenon.
PRP treatment for facial rejuvenation can also effectively stimulate adipocyte pre-cursor cells, leading to the successful differentiation of an adipocyte or fat cell. These cells are natural fillers of fine lines and can contour the face.
Here’s What PRP Treatments Can Fix
Miami PRP therapy for reversing signs of aging on the face has been demonstrated through improved complexion, repaired skin and smoothened wrinkles. This leading edge treatment is also sufficiently powerful for repairing age spots and diminishing scars, including acne scars. Below are more detailed conditions that can be treated with PRP for skin and face rejuvenation.
1) Lighten dark circles: the area under the eye is a sensitive region that can appear with bluish coloration due to poor microcirculation. With PRP, the growth factors and proteins present in the plasma can improve the microcirculation, resulting in brighter skin under the eyes.
2) Wrinkles: fine lines and wrinkles of the face are often caused by the loss of volume. Injections of PRP can restore the lost volume and eliminate these undesirable signs of aging. Common areas that are treated with PRP for wrinkles include: nasolabial folds, cheeks, jaws, periorbital areas, crow’s feet, nose and forehead.
3) Acne scars: PRP therapy for facial rejuvenation has high potential to effectively diminish the appearance of facial scars, including any deep acne scars.
Overall, Miami PRP therapy for facial rejuvenation stimulates the production of new collagen from our cells, which ultimately causes an improvement in the elasticity, tone and thickness of our skin.
PRP Treatment Process For Facial Rejuvenation
The treatment process for facial rejuvenation purposes is very similar to the procedure described for hair loss therapy. However, the final preparation step involves preparing the injection of PRP into the targeted areas of the face, rather than scalp. The treatment is relatively quick and pain-free with the use of topical numbing agents and very fine little needles.
When To Expect Results From PRP Treatment For Facial Rejuvenation
Initial results from the PRP therapy for facial rejuvenation can be visible after even just a few weeks, post-injection, however, the skin continues to improve for many months after the treatment.
