PRP Therapy – New Orleans
What if there were a procedure that could treat hair loss, acne scars, and the signs of age? It may sound too good to be true, but PRP therapy makes it all possible. Être is proud to be on the forefront of cosmetic dermatology by offering patients in New Orleans this exciting treatment.
PRP (platelet-rich plasma) therapy is a minimally invasive treatment that harnesses the regenerative properties of growth factors found in a patient’s. Injecting these growth factors or applying them topically delivers rejuvenating effects for the skin. PRP therapy works at the cellular level to produce real results, from reducing the appearance of scars to treating hair loss. And when performed with microneedling, the healing properties of PRP therapy are even more pronounced.

New Orleans PRP Therapy Explained
During a PRP therapy treatment, we’ll start by drawing your blood. This step will be familiar if you are a blood donor or have ever needed routine lab testing. Then, we’ll spin the blood in a centrifuge to isolate the platelets, which contain regenerative growth factor proteins called platelets. Finally, we inject this platelet-rich plasma apply it topically in the areas of concern.
Once injected, the reparative growth factors quickly get to work and stimulate skin cell regeneration. Platelets play a crucial role in tissue repair and regeneration, so PRP therapy essentially jumpstarts the body’s innate healing process.
PRP With Microneedling
When performed simultaneously, microneedling and PRP therapy are the perfect complement to each other. Here’s why: Microneedling creates controlled micro-injuries on the skin’s surface, which stimulates collagen production and rejuvenates the skin. Simultaneously, creates a direct pathway for the platelet-rich plasma to penetrate deeper into the skin. These benefits make the treatment more efficient and allows platelets to work where they’re needed most.

Ideal Candidates for New Orleans PRP Therapy
PRP therapy is minimally invasive, so it’s a suitable treatment for most healthy men and women. In addition, since the injections contain substances from the patient’s, the risk of a poor reaction is minimal.
Patients seeking PRP therapy in New Orleans typically want to address the following:
- Facial rejuvenation: PRP therapy stimulates the production of collagen, which can help soften fine lines and wrinkles, plump up gaunt areas, revitalize the undereye area, and produce overall facial rejuvenation.
- Reduce acne scars: When performed with microneedling, PRP therapy is an excellent method of improving skin texture and smoothing out skin indentations like deep-pitted acne scars.
- Treat hair loss: PRP therapy stimulates cell growth within the skin, which provides favorable conditions for new hair growth. When used for treating hair loss, PRP can help stimulate inactive or dormant hair follicles. When started soon enough, PRP therapy can stop hair loss in its tracks.
