Platelet Rich Plasma in Philadelphia, PA

Use your body’s own healing properties found in Platelet Rich Plasma to stimulate hair restoration, facial rejuvenation, and other health benefits. Platelet Rich Plasma, or PRP, is offered in Bala Cynwyd, Pennsylvania, by board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Paul M. Glat to the residents of Philadelphia and South Jersey.

What is PRP?

PRP is a non-invasive, non-surgical treatment using the platelets in your own blood to stimulate growth and healing properties in your skin, scalp and other areas. Your blood is drawn and “spun” to separate the platelets into a rich gel-like substance that is infused with natural fillers. PRP has been used over the years to stimulate healing in both bones and soft tissue areas.

Benefits of PRP

There are many benefits to using your body’s own natural healing processes to treat certain skin, scalp and other conditions, including:

  • Non-invasive, non-surgical methods
  • All natural treatments
  • No side effects or down time
  • Little risk involved
  • Less expensive than surgery
  • Quick, painless procedure

What are the Different PRP Procedures?

Here are the specific PRP procedures performed by Dr. Paul M. Glat at his clinic in Bala Cynwyd:

  • PRP Hair Restoration – PRP therapy is a type of proactive, non-surgical therapeutic option for patients who are experiencing hair loss. Appropriate for male and female patients, PRP stimulates hair growth and can make a big difference in regrowth.
  • PRP Vampire Facelift – A Vampire Facelift is a non-surgical procedure that can reduce wrinkles and rejuvenate the face without the use of unnatural chemicals.
  • O-Shot – An O-Shot actually refers to an injection administered into the vaginal wall to rejuvenate it and stimulate growth. Aging, multiple pregnancies or certain medical conditions can cause women to experience incontinence or sexual dysfunction, and the O-Shot is an effective treatment.
  • P-Shot – A P-Shot is an injection given in the penis to promote healing and rejuvenation. Men may sometimes suffer from incontinence or a lack of sexual function after experiencing prostate cancer, being diagnosed with diabetes, or taking certain medications. The P-Shot can greatly reduce these symptoms.

How is PRP Performed?

Blood is drawn from your arm and put into a centrifugal spinner that separates the platelets from the whole blood. The platelets are then mixed with natural fillers, and this rich gel-like substance is then injected into the site for rejuvenation or regrowth.

Preparing for PRP

Since PRP is a non-invasive, non-surgical treatment, there is no specific preparation necessary for receiving these treatments. A local anesthetic will be applied to the injection location before treatment.

PRP Recovery

You might be numb at the site of the injection for an hour or so after the treatment, but there are no restrictions and you can go back to your regular schedule immediately afterward.

All skin rejuvenation treatments and procedures are available at the office of Dr. Paul Glat, or at his Youth Rejuvenation Center. Dr. Glat’s Youth Rejuvenation Center is located at the Camac Center at the 12th Street Gym in Center City, Philadelphia.

How Much Does Platelet Rich Plasma Cost?
