Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) treatment has been safely used in sports medicine, orthopedics, cosmetics, surgery, and urology. Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) injection was first used in 1987. Many famous athletes like Tiger Woods, tennis star Rafael Nadal, and others have received PRP for various problems.
In Cosmetic Medicine Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) treatment is used to slow down the aging process, improving the skin tone, texture, and minimizing fine lines and wrinkles. This technology uses a part of our own blood (plasma) enriched with platelets and growth factors. PRP accelerates normal healing process via new collagen formation at the injected area.
Because your own plasma is used, there is no need for allergy testing. Platelet Rich Plasma is a ‘bioactive’ stimulator, NOT a filler, so the improvements in skin thickness and the texture are gradual. Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) injections are effective for treating the eye area, face, neck, décolleté, hands, and hair growth stimulation.
PRP’s most exciting feature is that it is YOUR blood and YOUR plasma which is a most natural and safe way of rejuvenation.
During the PRP treatment 20-25 milliliters of blood get drawn, like in standard blood test taking. Thereafter the blood get separated into its ingredients by centrifugation.
PRP is then injected under the skin. A single PRP treatment will take approximately 30-40 minutes. PRP can also be mixed with a filler prior to the injection, and the procedure is known as “Vampire Face Lift”. The adverse reactions are minimal and usually resolve in 2-3 days.
The most common problems are bruising, swelling, and tenderness. Aspirin, Aleve, Ibuprofen, or fish oil supplements should be avoided prior to the procedure to prevent bruising. The results of the treatment will last up to twelve months. Call us to arrange your complimentary consultation.

At age 65, I thought I had done everything possible to regain a more youthful appearance. I had recently undergone a facelift, eye surgery, and a hair plant procedure, and I was faithfully following a facial cream regimen. But still, the hollowing of my cheeks and the wrinkles on my forehead were tell-tale signs of aging, and I was not truly happy with my appearance. After literally one visit to Dr. Avakian, I had regained a youthful look I never thought I would ever see again. I just can’t ... Read more »
