Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Treatment Services in Plano
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is an advanced therapy that promotes cell regeneration and stimulates collagen production in targeted areas across the body. Most commonly used as a facial treatment, PRP helps to rejuvenate the skin and give a healthy and glowing appearance. At Beauti Science Med Spa in Plano, our specialists create a personalized PRP treatment for each of our med spa clients.
What Are PRP Injections?
PRP uses the client’s blood platelets to accelerate healing. In combination with treatments like microneedling, alopecia therapy and the O-Shot/P-Shot, the injections deliver benefits for fine lines, wrinkles, hair loss, acne, scarring, sun damage, skin sagging, age spots, loss of libido and more.
The treatment starts with the drawing of a small amount of your own blood. This blood sample is then processed in a device called a centrifuge. The blood is spun to separate the PRP from other elements in the blood, creating a solution with a higher concentration of platelets than normal. These platelets are incredibly useful for increasing cell reproduction and regenerating tissue. Therefore, when PRP is used in conjunction with other treatments, they can produce noticeable improvements to the target area.
What Beauty Treatments Use PRP?
PRP is widely used in fields ranging from beauty treatments to sports injury recovery. At Beauti Science Med Spa, we use the therapy in three main areas.
Microneedling is a popular beauty treatment that improves the complexion and texture of the skin. Fine needles make small punctures in the top layer of the skin to stimulate collagen production and provide a healthy, young and vibrant appearance. Microneedling with PRP is an advanced form of this facial treatment, involving the injection of PRP solution into the tiny holes.
The treatments work in combination to increase collagen production and stimulate the healing process. The process rejuvenates the skin, limits the signs of scarring and acne and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Patients can expect a healthy glow and tighter skin that continues to improve as collagen production increases.
Hair Loss Treatment
PRP has been used in various treatments for many decades. More recently, its application has been extended to hair loss therapy. The process is similar to the more common skin facial, but the plasma is injected into the scalp. Ultimately, the goal is to trigger hair growth and thickness through the injection of platelets into damaged follicles. Hair naturally grows thinner during the aging process, but PRP can potentially reinvigorate continued growth. In combination with other alopecia treatments, PRP could limit hair loss.
O-Shot and P-Shot
Additional treatments gaining interest from Beauti Science Med Spa clients are the O-Shot and P-Shot. The O-Shot can treat issues including decreased libido, stress urinary incontinence, Lichen planus, chronic interstitial cystitis and other conditions. The P-Shot, featuring the regenerative power of PRP, is used to address erectile dysfunction. If you need assistance with physical health and reproductive fitness, contact us about these treatments.

Common Questions About PRP
Is PRP treatment safe?
As PRP uses the patient’s own plasma, there is little risk involved. Treatments involving injections carry a small risk of infection, but at Beauti Science Med Spa we use safe, sterile equipment and our team is highly trained and skilled.
Is PRP an appropriate treatment for me?
Our licensed healthcare provider will discuss your options before treatment. While PRP is safe and effective for most candidates, it may not be suitable for patients diagnosed with cancer, or who have metastatic disease, blood infection, pregnancy or breastfeeding, platelet dysfunction syndrome, an allergy to lidocaine and other possible concerns.
How long do PRP results last?
PRP results will gradually improve as cells continue to grow. For this reason, it can often take three to six weeks to see major improvements. However, results will continue to improve and typically last for as long as 18 months to two years.
