At Skin Smart, we feel it’s important to reach out to the community and spread the word about how ordinary people can obtain healthy, radiant skin. That’s why we’re so excited to be featured on the cover of the June/July issue of Bucks County Women’s Journal! This magazine focuses on subjects that real women want to know about—topics like careers, culture, of course, quality skin care.
Learn About Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy with Dr. Toby Shawe
The magazine specifically features an article by our own Dr. Toby Shawe on hair restoration through platelet-rich plasma therapy, or PRP. PRP is a cutting-edge technique for treating androgenetic alopecia, or as its more commonly known, hereditary hair thinning. With PRP, your body’s natural resources are utilized to stimulate your hair follicles, resulting in thicker, healthier hair.
During the procedure, our registered nurse withdraws a small amount of blood from your arm. Using a centrifuge, we extract plasma loaded with protein-heavy platelets. The nurse applies a topical anesthetic to your scalp and the plasma is injected with a very thin needle. As you can see, the procedure is largely non-invasive, and since the plasma is taken from your own body, there’s no risk of experiencing an adverse reaction.
We recommend our patients receive four PRP therapy treatments spaced four weeks apart to achieve peak results. Your may notice reduced hair loss after your first treatment. After you’ve completed two or three treatments, your hair should be healthier and thicker.
