Platelet-rich plasma therapy is one of the most popular aesthetic treatments available today—and for good reason: PRP injections can help erase fine lines and wrinkles, restore fullness to thinning hair, ease pain and inflammation from osteoarthritis, and much more.

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is blood plasma infused with the proteins, platelets, and other growth factors found in blood that your body uses to heal wounds and help cells regenerate. Platelets are particularly essential to this process because they allow the blood to clot, which activates the body’s natural healing processes.
PRP injections can be administered to the face, scalp, joints, or wounds to stimulate collagen production, help wounds heal faster, reduce swelling, and alleviate pain.
BEYOUth Med Spa +Wellness offers platelet-rich plasma treatments administered by our experienced and fully licensed MSN, Anna Kryuchkova.
To prepare the serum used in PRP therapy, we first collect a small blood sample from new patients. The sample is then processed in a centrifuge to separate the plasma, platelets, and proteins from the rest of the blood components.
This platelet-rich plasma is then processed into a serum which can be injected into the patient’s skin or joints to promote collagen production and increase stem cells, which encourages healthy cell growth in the treatment area.
PRP has proven to be effective in treating a wide variety of aesthetic conditions, from smoothing away fine lines to treating hair fall. It’s also an effective medical treatment for overuse injuries, particularly those related to the joints and connective tissues.
As individuals age, their skin produces less collagen and begins to lose elasticity. Platelet rich plasma injections help lift and smooth skin by introducing regenerative blood compounds into targeted areas. This process nourishes your skin and helps restore its elasticity while also giving you a youthful glow.
PRP is growing in popularity as an effective treatment for thinning hair. PRP serum contains a high concentration of healing proteins and growth factors. These compounds have also been shown to stimulate follicles to restore fullness to your hair naturally. Patients see an improvement to the health and thickness of their hair.
Athletes and those with high-activity jobs—such as nurses or construction workers—are at risk of developing knee osteoarthritis. This condition occurs when the cartilage between the joints in the knee wears away from overuse.
Symptoms include stiffness, swelling, pain, and reduced range of motion—all of which can be improved with PRP therapy injections.
Plantar fasciitis results from the strain or overuse of the plantar fascia ligaments that stretch between the heel and the base of the toes. When these ligaments are overworked, they become inflamed and cause sharp pains and stiffness in the foot and even up the leg.
Platelet rich plasma therapy helps alleviate this pain and inflammation by helping the plantar fascia to heal more quickly.
PRP injection therapy helps wounds heal faster and more completely by infusing the area with a concentrated dose of the components essential to healing and wound repair.
Physical therapy helps individuals heal from injuries by using specific exercises to strengthen their muscles and joints, and improve range of motion (ROM). PRP makes physical therapy more effective and helps individuals recover more quickly.
Injecting platelet-rich serum into an area that’s inflamed or injured floods that area with plasma, proteins, and platelets essential for healing, which helps injuries heal faster and reduces inflammation in orthopedic injuries.

Yes—PRP therapy can safely be combined with aesthetic treatments like Botox, dermal fillers, and microneedling. If you’d like to combine PRP therapy with another procedure, our aestheticians can provide more information on which treatments can be combined.
If you are a patient undergoing PRP therapy, you should abstain from drinking alcohol for at least 72 hours after receiving the injections. Since alcohol thins the blood, it can make your bruising worse and slow the healing process.
PRP is a quick, outpatient procedure with little risk and very few side effects. However, as with any medical procedure, some patients may experience mild side effects while they recover.
Common PRP side effects include:
In very rare cases, some patients may have sharp, sudden pain in the treated area. If you experience this side effect, seek medical attention immediately.
