What is PRP Therapy?
At Nirvana Med Spa, our team is excited to provide platelet-rich plasma therapy (PRP) to help rejuvenate your complexion. PRP therapy is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in the aesthetic industry because of its natural methods and exciting results. Using a patient's plasma to stimulate the production of collagen, PRP helps reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. For optimal results, we can combine PRP with microneedling treatments.

We will happily discuss the benefits of PRP and how it can help improve your skin.

Who is an ideal candidate for PRP therapy?
PRP therapy is an exciting, natural treatment option for many patients. Using your platelet-rich plasma, we can inject it into different parts of your body to help you attain your cosmetic or sexual health goals. Because of the natural stimulation of collagen production, this treatment can address a variety of cosmetic issues, such as:
- Skin complexion – reduces hyperpigmentation, acne scars, fine lines, and wrinkles
- Sexual health – improves libido with the P-Shot or O-Shot
- Body contouring – enhances and shapes the buttocks or cleavage
- Hair loss – restores hair for patients with significant hair loss
During your consultation, please let us know if you have certain skin conditions, anemia, or blood disorders to determine if PRP therapy is safe for you. Additionally, this treatment is not ideal for patients who take corticosteroid medications and are pregnant or breastfeeding.
How does platelet-rich plasma therapy work?
Once you have relaxed in a comfortable treatment chair, we will draw blood from your arm and place it in a centrifuge machine. Generally, we take around four tablespoons or one vial of blood. After approximately 15 minutes in the centrifuge machine, the components of the blood start to separate and then we can inject the PRP. We will place the plasma into a syringe and inject it into the treatment areas. Usually, PRP treatments only take about five minutes, but this varies for each patient.
What can i Expect after prp therapy?
PRP treatments naturally stimulate the production of elastin and collagen to create tauter, more youthful-looking skin. Because it uses your blood, you have little to no risk of allergic or adverse reactions. Your treatment area may appear a little red after the procedure because small amounts of red blood cells may be in the plasma injection. You can use a cold compress on the treatment sites to reduce any discomfort or minor swelling. To maintain your results, we recommend scheduling follow-up treatments every 4 – 6 weeks.
PRP Therapy faqs
How much does PRP therapy cost?
Your cost for PRP therapy will depend on the size and number of areas being treated and if it is done with another cosmetic treatment. Your technician will come up with an estimated cost during your consultation at Nirvana Med Spa, then talk about any specials we are offering.
How long do results from PRP therapy last?
Visible results from PRP therapy may last for 4 – 8 weeks. The results will vary for each patient and depends on the area being treated. One of the benefits of this procedure is that it does not require incisions or significant downtime and is easier to afford.
Will PRP help replenish volume?
A treatment of PRP therapy cannot restore volume. While PRP therapy offers stunning results since it rejuvenates the appearance of the skin and stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, PRP treatments do not increase volume. If you want to contour areas on the face that have lost volume, you may add dermal fillers to your PRP treatment plan.
Is PRP therapy painful?
PRP injections feel similar to a dermal filler or BOTOX® injection but with the additional step of drawing blood to get the plasma. Generally, patients feel mild pressure or a pinch when the needle pierces the skin. If you are nervous about feeling pain, ask about including a numbing cream during your consultation.
With PRP therapy, your skin will look healthier and brighter than ever before! Producing a glowing, beautiful complexion, this treatment is ideal for men and women who love a natural treatment option for skin rejuvenation. The o-shot and p-shot can improve libido. PRP therapy may also help patients contour their buttocks or breasts and reduce hair loss. This highly versatile and natural treatment option is exciting for many patients. To receive additional information about this exciting procedure, contact our Little Rock, AR office to schedule a consultation with one of our skilled team members.
