PRP is becoming a popular and natural way to enhance one’s beauty.  It has incredible results without surgery, chemicals (like Botox and fillers), lasers or other aesthetic procedures.


Platelet-rich plasma is injected through multiple tiny punctures under the dermis, with or without topical local anesthesia. Minimal swelling, bruising, and redness for the initial 12 to 24 hours are expected.  


When PRP is injected into the skin, it initiates a localized stem cell response, which over weeks and months, attracts collagen-producing cells (fibroblasts) to the area.  These fibroblasts replace tissue that has been damaged or has diminished through aging.  As this collagen matures, it begins to shrink and tighten and strengthen the skin as well as the tendons and ligaments of the damaged area – the result is a younger complexion!


PRP treatments can be used on all skin types and tones. 

  • Wrinkle therapy -  fine and deep wrinkles, crow’s feet

  • Under eye dark circles (skin tends to be too thin and there’s not enough muscle there for other fillers)

  • Décolleté or creepy skin (neck and chest)

  • Rosacea 

  • Sun damaged skin

  • Brown or red discolorations

  • Mild collagen and volume loss

  • Stretch marks

  • Acne scarring

  • Cellulite

PRP and its use in aesthetics has gained its popularity with the Vampire Facelift® technique used by Kim Kardashian.  PRP today is being used for ever-growing applications in aesthetics:

Overall improvement in skin hydration, texture and tone can be seen in a few weeks post injections. New collagen and blood vessels begin to form within three to six weeks, and fine lines and wrinkles are reduced and volume enhances over the next three to six months. The effects of PRP can last 12 months to two years, depending on the individual. 


Given the potency of the Harvest PRP, 1-3 treatments only may be required at 2-6 month intervals depending on the problem being addressed. Maintenance treatments are recommended every 12 to 18 months depending on your individualized aging patterns.
