PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma) Therapy
Treatment for enlarged pores, fine lines, and thinning hair.
Are you looking to rejuvenate your skin and get that youthful, healthy glow back you’ve been dreaming of? One of the many anti-aging treatment options that can be used for both restorative and preventative treatments at our Burlington clinic is PRP. Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP), also known as the “vampire facial”, is a fast injectable treatment that can improve your pore size, acne scars, fine lines and wrinkles and make your skin look silky smooth.
Patients can also treat thinning hairlines or bald spots with our PRP treatments. The best part of PRP injections is that they are completely natural, and therefore produce very natural, beautiful results!
What Is PRP?
Platlet-Rich Plasma Therapy, or PRP, includes growth factors that enhance the body’s natural healing process. Applying a serum of concentrated platelets (taken from a small amount of the patient’s own blood) to the skin during a microneedling treatment stimulates the skin to repair itself by increasing the production of collagen and elastin. The tiny channels created during microneedling allow the PRP to penetrate deep into the skin. Cosmedica uses the advanced WorldPRP™ system because it increases the volume, density, and purity of PRP with its unique, hourglass-shaped device.
How Is PRP Produced?
Producing platelet-rich plasma involves drawing a small amount of the patient’s blood and then spinning it in a centrifuge to separate red blood cells and other impurities from the PRP. What makes WorldPRP the most effective method is that the centrifuge quickly and gently processes the blood so that platelets aren’t damaged. The process typically takes only 3 minutes.
Additionally, the patented hourglass-shaped device ensures the PRP’s purity and integrity. PRP treatments have a long track record of safety and effectiveness in many medical fields. It’s probably best-known for helping athletes heal more quickly following an injury.

What is a PRP treatment like?
Not sure what to expect with our PRP treatments? The process is minimally invasive and requires very little downtime. First, we inject a serum of concentrated platelets (taken from a small amount of your own blood) to the skin which stimulates the skin to repair itself by increasing the production of collagen and elastin. This result is a radiant youthful glow. Your skin will also look smoother and younger. PRP can also be done to stimulate hair follicle growth. Many men and women with thinning hair benefit from treatment and love the results!
