About PRP Therapy

PRP stands for platelet-rich plasma. For this treatment, the platelets, which are blood cells that promote the healing of wounds, are extracted from your own cells. A small amount of blood is withdrawn, and then the platelets in the blood are isolated using a centrifuge to extract them. Then, these platelets are injected back into the treatment areas.

These platelets release growth factors that stimulate the production of collagen and new tissue, so this therapy is also used to promote wound healing. As a cosmetic treatment, your body will respond naturally to these cells, and you will see improvement in your skin’s tone and texture.

Dr. Fisher has been my dermatologist since I had cancer 12 years ago. What knowledge and what kindness! She explains everything in details, using at times analogies and drawings to educate patients. This is going beyond the call of duty to help patients understand their conditions. She is a great professor with considerable expertise in her field. I highly recommend her as a dermatologist and as a human being.

The Kingsway Dermatology team are excellent and very professional. I have been going here for some years now to address all of my skin care issues. I am especially pleased with the results from Halo treatments with Katie. All the staff and both medical and cosmetic are exceptional. Highly recommended.

My experience at Kingsway has been nothing but short of amazing. The clinic itself is extremely clean and all the staff members are very professional and helpful. Emily has been treating my skin since April. I always look forward to seeing her as she is very knowledgeable, kind and gentle with my treatments. She always ensures that I am comfortable and always checks to see if I am happy with my current results. I feel so confident coming here that my skin goals will be achieved with the understanding and caring that Emily always provides!

I went in to Kingsway Dermatology for a consultation and I was so happy with the appointment. Nadia was my consultant and she was so helpful and positive. She answered all my questions before I even asked them and she really listened to all my concerns. I felt like she really just got it. Probably one of the best consultations I've had. I really recommend talking to her for your consultation.The clinic is very clean and the staff was very friendly. The location is very easy to get to. There's also paid parking above ground and underground.

I cannot say enough good things about Kingsway Dermatology and Dr Ruppel. The results I get from my treatments with Dr R are second-to-none and she always has a way of making me feel incredibly at ease and comfortable. She’s a wonderful clinician and has an absolutely lovely bedside manner. She will go the extra mile to make sure you don’t feel rushed, that you feel welcome and that you’re more than just a number. I would recommend her twenty times over and I’m just thrilled that I found such a caring knowledgeable dermatologist. The clinic staff are also lovely, friendly and welcoming. Highly, highly recommend.

Conditions Treated with PRP

PRP injection treatments are ideal for areas on the neck, face, décolletage and scalp. Some of the most popular areas include fine lines around the eyes and mouth, volume loss in the cheeks, and tone, texture, and wrinkles in the neck and upper chest area. PRP is a proven treatment for those experiencing hair loss.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is PRP Treatment Right for Me?

PRP is a popular choice for patients seeking a more natural solution for their cosmetic dermatology needs, but it is not the right choice for everyone. When you come to Kingsway for your consultation, we’ll speak with you about your skin concerns, lifestyle, and habits, and review your medical history to see if you’d be a good fit for PRP. If not, we can recommend one of several other skin rejuvenation procedures we offer.

For hair loss, we recommend getting a diagnosis from your family doctor prior to coming in to discuss if PRP for hair retention and growth is right for you.

Does PRP Hurt?

PRP treatments are generally not painful. You may feel a prick of pain during the initial blood draw, and shallower pricking sensations at the injection sites. Depending on the sensitivity level of the treatment area, we may use a topical anesthetic to minimize discomfort.

Is There Downtime for PRP Procedures?

The length of your PRP session will depend on the treatment areas and other factors, but tend to run approximately forty-five minutes to an hour. After this, you can resume most of your daily activities, but some may be limited as your body begins its natural healing process. At your consultation, we’ll be able to give you a better idea of what your personal aftercare plan will look like.

When Will I See PRP Results?

Most patients see results from PRP injections within a few weeks, and will improve over the next 1 to 2 months as your body’s increased collagen production continues. Results tend to last for 1 to 2 years, but this may depend on external factors like sun exposure, age, hormone levels, and your cells’ natural rate of regeneration. Many patients choose to do a maintenance session once or twice a year to maintain their results and achieve continued benefits of PRP.
