What is PRP Therapy?
Elysium SurgiSpa is pleased to offer PRP (platelet-rich plasma) therapy, one of the most popular and innovative cosmetic procedures in the industry because of its natural origin and promising results. PRP therapy infuses plasma directly from your own blood into specific regions of the face or body to manage problematic areas and achieve smoother, rejuvenated skin, as well as thicker, fuller hair. Often known as “liquid gold,” plasma from the blood includes platelets and growth factors that, as they're reintroduced into the skin, encourage the body's natural collagen and elastin generation.

How is PRP Therapy Performed?
PRP therapy is a quick treatment performed at Elysium SurgiSpa. We will draw a small amount of blood from one of your arms. The blood will be put into a centrifuge machine to separate the platelet-rich plasma, which takes about 15 minutes. We will then place your concentrated plasma into a syringe and inject it into the areas where you want to improve the health of your skin and/or hair. Plasma from PRP therapy naturally promotes collagen and elastin production to create younger, tighter-looking skin. Because it uses your own blood, there is virtually no risk of adverse or allergic reactions. You can expect your face to be a little red following the procedure as traces of red blood cells will be included in the plasma injection. Cold packs can be used on the injection site to ease any discomfort and swelling. For rejuvenated outcomes, we recommend follow-up treatments every 4 – 6 weeks.
