When it comes to the outward signs of aging, wrinkles, sagging skin, and hair loss form a trifecta of forces that can quickly rob you of your youthful appearance. While we offer many effective services at Dr. Mei office to combat these signs of aging, PRP (platelet-rich-plasma) is unique, using a patient’s own blood from a simple blood draw, with advanced separating system to get purified PRP.   For skin treatment, you will experience firmer, revitalized, and plumper skin. For hair loss, it is a proactive therapy for both men and women. PRP stimulates the resting or inactive hair follicles into active growing hair follicles. 

 

At our Long Beach, California, practice, Dr. Weiping Sarah Mei is a board-certified physician who understands the importance of looking as young as you feel, which is why we offer a full array of cosmetic services. Through cutting-edge laser technologies and science-based products, we’re helping our patients glow with vitality. 

 

Here’s a look at how PRP can restore your aging skin and reverse hair loss.

The power of platelets

At the heart of our PRP therapy are your very own platelets, which we harvest from your blood. As part of the body’s capacity to heal itself, platelets release a variety of factors that respond to tissue injury which initiate and promote healing.  We use a superior technology (FDA cleared class II medical device) in a completely closed system to obtain your purified PRP – “liquid gold”. PRP treatment has been studied and offered in many major universities and medical centers, including Harvard, Stanford, Oxford, UCLA, etc.  For skin rejuvenation, PRP goes to your skin through microneedling, which is a quick procedure with minimum discomfort, which also induces collagen growth. For hair treatment, PRP is injected into, as well as applied to, the scalp. 

A series of treatments is recommended, initially spaced every 4 weeks for 3 consecutive treatments and then every 3-6 months thereafter for maintenance.  We’re excited to be part of this revolutionary treatment protocol.

 

Your results will be gradual as your body sets to work with the renewed resources that PRP provides.
