Platelet Rich Plasma Injections in Calgary
What if we told you that one of the best skin rejuvenation ingredients was within your own body? Well, it’s true! Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injection treatments are one of the fastest-growing skin and scalp rejuvenation treatments available, using the healing properties your body naturally produces. The benefits of PRP are scientifically-backed and proven to work, you may have noticed a few notable celebs having the treatment too.

What Is PRP?
Platelet-rich plasma is derived from your own blood, separated from red blood cells by a centrifuge. The platelets contain growth factors, which are substances that stimulate cell growth, proliferation, and healing. When applied to certain areas of the face, neck, chest, and even the scalp, they stimulate growth and improvement in those areas, leading to healthy, firm, smooth skin on the face and hair follicle stimulation on the scalp.
What Are The Benefits?
PRP injection treatments stimulate cellular regeneration to improve skin quality and minimize fine lines of the face, neck, decollete and hands. Platelet-rich plasma contains growth factors that stimulate the microcirculation in the under-eye area, resulting in a brightening and smoothing effect for dark circles under the eyes. PRP injections for deep wrinkles help to enhance the results of laser, radiofrequency, and dermal filler treatments over nasolabial folds, cheeks, jawline, neck, decollete, around the eyes, around the mouth and upper lip.
PRP injections can also be used for:
- Acne/surgical scars
- Fine lines
- Volume loss
- Enlarged Pores
- Hair restoration for alopecia; male pattern balding and female hair thinning
What Does The Procedure Look Like?
Prior to the start of the procedure, we’ll ask that you discontinue all blood-thinning medications at least a week before the procedure if possible. Blood-thinning medications like Ibuprofin and Motrin interfere with platelet function, reducing the effectiveness of the procedure.
The PRP facial process begins with blood being drawn and spun in a centrifuge. This process isolates the platelets and growth factors that will provide all the benefits. Once the PRP is separated, we then reinsert it back into the designated areas for the facial with the U225 PRP Meso Gun. We also pair PRP injections with microneedling to improve the absorption of the PRP. The process is relatively fast, taking less than an hour to complete.
The same process can be done for the scalp to restore hair loss associated with male pattern balding and female hair thinning.
What To Expect After The Procedure?
After the procedure, the treatment area may be red, dry, tight, tender and swollen for 24–48 hours. We will also provide post-care recommendations that include skincare for you to use, focusing on gentle, moisturizing products to help the skin heal.
PRP injection facials can be done once every four to six weeks, and usually, a package of 3 will provide exceptional results. Paired with other skincare products and treatments such as microneedling, PRP injections can breathe new life into your skin!
