The Benefits of PRP: Why Platelet-Rich Plasma Is a Game Changer

Dealing with aging skin, hair loss, and the aftermath of injuries can feel like an uphill battle for many. At Aesthetics Now, we offer a solution for our patients in Markham and Toronto, Ontario, that can address many of these concerns by targeting the root of the problem.

PRP therapy offers treatment for a range of conditions. It can help rejuvenate aging skin, promote hair regrowth, and much more. By using regenerative treatments, we can help your body to heal itself and give you a drug-free and surgery-free alternative for many of the concerns you face. 

What Is PRP Therapy?

PRP therapy is a type of regenerative medicine that uses the patient’s own blood to encourage healing and aesthetic improvement. By extracting and concentrating the plasma and platelet portions of the blood, we can take advantage of a substance that is rich in growth factors and restorative properties. Then we can use a variety of methods to enhance your aesthetics and well-being.

The Benefits of PRP Therapy

Enhancing Skin Rejuvenation

Youthful and vibrant skin can find an ally in the natural regenerative powers of PRP therapy. By using your body’s ability to heal, PRP treatments can reduce the signs of aging such as wrinkles and fine lines while improving skin texture and enhancing overall skin tone. A PRP facial involves injecting platelet-rich plasma into certain areas of the face to invigorate the skin’s rejuvenation processes, which can promote youthful facial volume and skin elasticity.

Promoting Hair Growth

For those experiencing thinning hair or hair loss, PRP for hair loss can be a good alternative solution. This method utilizes platelet-rich plasma to stimulate the hair follicles, encouraging new hair growth and increasing the thickness of the hair shaft. By directly addressing the root of hair loss, PRP hair treatment has become a sought-after option for individuals looking to restore their hair’s natural vitality and fullness without medication.

Enhancing Healing and Recovery After Cosmetic Treatments

Following cosmetic treatments such as microneedling, PRP can help the body heal and reduce recovery time. This combination amplifies the benefits of these treatments by promoting skin repair and collagen production and minimizes inflammation and discomfort post-treatment. PRP treatments complement many of our other cosmetic modalities and are an often recommended addition.

Treating Injuries and Providing Pain Relief

PRP treatments can provide a different approach to managing soft tissue injuries, joint pain, and inflammation. By concentrating the body’s healing agents and injecting them into the affected area, this treatment accelerates recovery, reduces pain, and improves function, often without more invasive procedures.

Treating Wounds and Speeding Up Healing

PRP therapy offers benefits in the treatment of wounds, especially those that are healing slowly or are at risk of infection. By applying platelet-rich plasma directly to the wound, this therapy speeds healing and can even reduce scar formation.

Improvement of Dark Circles

Dark circles under the eyes can detract from your appearance. PRP injections can improve blood flow and enhance skin rejuvenation in the delicate under-eye area, reducing the appearance of dark circles and leading to a more refreshed and alert appearance.

Application Methods for PRP

PRP Injections

PRP injections are a direct and efficient method of delivering the healing and regenerative benefits of platelet-rich plasma to specific areas of the body. When addressing hair loss, for example, these injections target the scalp, where they can rejuvenate hair follicles and promote hair regrowth as part of a PRP hair treatment. This technique is widely recognized for its precision and effectiveness in treating a variety of conditions by stimulating the body’s natural repair processes.

PRP With Microneedling

Combining platelet-rich plasma with microneedling can enhance the effects of both treatments. Microneedling with PRP involves creating microchannels on the skin, which, in addition to jumpstarting a healing process, can also make the skin very receptive to nourishing ingredients like PRP. During PRP microneedling, we apply platelet-rich plasma topically to the area after microneedling.


Transforming platelet-rich plasma into a gel form allows for its use in a variety of medical and aesthetic applications, making PRP therapy even more versatile. This gel can be applied topically to wounds or surgical sites to enhance healing, reduce recovery time, and minimize scar formation.

How We Prepare Our PRP

At Aesthetics Now, the preparation of PRP treatment involves a sophisticated process known as A-PRP® with Regen ACR. This technique carefully separates the platelet-rich plasma from the patient’s blood through centrifugation. This causes the blood to separate into a red blood cell layer and a golden PRP layer. The A-PRP® method enhances the efficacy of the PRP and optimizes it for all of these applications and more.

Why Choose PRP?

  • Non-invasive: Unlike surgical options, PRP treatments are non-invasive with short recovery times.
  • Uses Natural Substances: PRP uses your blood rather than foreign substances, which helps reduce reactions and side effects.
  • Customizable: Treatments can be tailored to address specific concerns and areas, ensuring targeted outcomes.
