“Dr. Grodberg suggested we add PRP to my microneedling treatment and I loved the results! The healing time was extremely fast and the PRP seemed to turbocharge the procedure.”—RS, Tenafly
“Platelet-Rich Plasma, also known as PRP, is a high concentration of your own platelets in a small volume of plasma. It is obtained by drawing your blood and then centrifuging the blood to concentrate the platelets. Platelets contain a variety of growth factors that may help with healing and enhance results when applied at the time of a procedure.” —Dr. Michele Grodberg
“The blood draw takes a couple of minutes, followed immediately by a 10-minute centrifugation. Application time varies based on the procedure.”
"Since the Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) is produced from a patient’s own blood, there is virtually no risk of an allergic reaction or rejection."
“The process of PRP extraction and certain treatments using PRP have been approved by the FDA. PRP treatments for hair regrowth, acne scarring, and facial rejuvenation have not yet been specifically approved by the FDA and are currently the subject of numerous scientific studies and research with very promising early results.”
Dr. Grodberg brings her extensive experience and deep physicians’s knowledge to follow-up care and has designed standard guidelines as a starting point for most common procedures. If you are planning to add PRP to your skin rejuvenation procedure make sure to drink plenty of water the day before and the day of our procedure since hydration facilitates blood drawing and the amount of plasma available
