In some cases, PRP therapy can also be used for breast lifts. Dr. Bushore can use PRP to enhance the shape of your breast, smoothing the skin and reducing the appearance of wrinkles.
To begin the procedure, Dr. Bushore typically draws a vial of blood. The blood is placed in a centrifuge, where platelets and growth factors, such as fibrin, are separated and collected.
He then injects the PRP into the designated treatment areas to increase collagen production and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, improving your skin’s tone and texture. The whole treatment takes approximately 20 minutes.
Results become visible in 3-5 weeks, and within 4-7, the maximum benefit is reached. Results may last up to 18 months.
In some cases, Dr. Bushore and his team can use PRP therapy to stimulate hair growth and thickness. If your hair loss is caused by inactive hair cells, PRP therapy works to energize the cells, improving their health. This, in turn, restores hair growth.
Although multiple treatment sessions are recommended, many patients see results after just one treatment.
