Microneedling With PRP

Wellness at Century City

The Best Internist And Integrative Medicine Doctor In Los Angeles, CA

Unlock the key to regeneration and longevity medicine through the blood coursing in your veins. Using your own blood cells, Dr. Jessica Cho is an expert in using Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) to accelerate the healing process in specific areas.

What is PRP?

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a concentrated serum that comes from your own blood. Platelets, or thrombocytes, are named after their classic flat and round dinner-plate-like shapes. These cells are responsible for clotting together and forming a cohesive mesh to close wounds. Beyond clotting, your platelets hold even more untouched healing potential in the form of growth factors. Through their growth factors, platelets can trigger cell reproduction and stimulate tissue regeneration.

PRP Benefits:

● Repairs damaged tissue
● Alleviates joint pain
● Treats erectile dysfunction (ED) in men
● Boosts sexual function for women
● Stimulates new hair growth
● Promotes skin regeneration and elasticity

How does PRP work?

PRP therapy is fully customizable to your specific needs. First, your blood will be drawn to concentrate your platelets within your plasma. Once your platelets are prepared for reinsertion, you and Dr. Cho are ready to march forward in your journey to optimal wellness. Your next steps are in your hands.

How much does PRP cost?

The cost depends on the number of sessions and the target issue being treated. We are proud to offer a premier level of care at the right price. Please give us a call at (213)376-2927 to schedule your consultation with Dr. Jessica Cho.

Microneedling with PRP

As we age, our skin loses elasticity and regenerative ability, leading to stubborn sun damage, loose and wrinkled skin near the mouth, and translucency on the back of the hands. Microneedling is a minimally invasive treatment to stimulate your skin’s natural healing response and boost collagen and elastin production. By creating tiny pinpricks in the top layer of your skin to boost the absorption of your PRP, Dr. Cho can improve skin tone, reduce pores, and fade stretch marks and scarring.

What are the benefits?

● Reduce the appearance of acne scarring and scarring
● Correct hyperpigmentation and melasma
● Minimize fine lines and pore size

Am I a candidate?

Microneedling with PRP is ideal for any skin tone on the face, neck, chest, and hands. It is not recommended for anyone with active skin conditions like eczema or infection.

What should I expect?

This treatment typically takes about 60 to 90 minutes. Patients say they feel little, if any, pain. Here is the procedure:

● We draw your blood and place it into a centrifuge to produce the plasma-rich serum.
● Numbing cream will be applied to the treatment area.
● We use the CosmoPen handheld device to create tiny pin-pricks and deliver the PRP to your skin.
● You enjoy the benefits of your body’s improved healing capabilities. 

Treatment plans vary based on the individual patient. Three to five treatments are usually recommended to get the full benefits. You may even opt for maintenance treatments once or twice a year afterward.

Is there downtime?

You’ll have some redness, swelling, and sensitivity for about three to five days. Because microneedling creates tiny wounds, your skin will be more susceptible to anything you apply. Keep your skin extra clean, avoid makeup and harsh ingredients (like retinoids and exfoliating acids) for a few days, use gentle hydrating products, and protect your skin with SPF. Dr. Cho may also recommend ice packs or topical creams to soothe any minor discomfort.

Injections with PRP for Hair Loss

Using the latest technologies in anti-aging and longevity medicine, Dr. Jessica Cho is elevating the science of hair restoration. PRP promotes hair growth by stimulating the formation of brand new blood vessels to supply your scalp with nutrients. You deserve to regain the confidence that comes with feeling great about your full head of hair.

What are the benefits?

● Increase blood supply to the follicle
● Increase hair thickness
● Trigger and maintain the growth phase
● Decrease hair loss 

Am I a candidate?

PRP injections offer transformative benefits to men and women alike. There are many different types of hair loss that PRP may be effective for, such as androgenic alopecia, telogen effluvium, anagen effluvium, alopecia areata, traction alopecia, and more. This is the perfect partner therapy alongside other treatment plans such as hair growth peptides or supplements to improve any deficiencies in your blood test. It is not recommended for anyone with active skin conditions like eczema or infection.

What should I expect?

This treatment typically takes about 45 to 60 minutes. Patients say they feel little, if any, pain. Here is the procedure:

● We draw your blood and place it into a centrifuge to produce the plasma-rich serum.
● We inject your PRP directly to the scalp to target any thinning or baldness.
● You enjoy the benefits of your body’s improved healing capabilities.

Treatment plans vary based on the individual patient. Three to four treatments, about one month apart, are usually recommended to get the full benefits. You may even opt for maintenance treatments once or twice a year afterward.

Is there downtime?

You may experience some redness, swelling, and bleeding at the injection sites. Keep your skin extra clean and avoid harsh dyes or chemicals for 48 hours. New hair follicles typically take six months to one year to grow, but thinning may improve sooner.

Injections with PRP for Repair and Recovery

The benefits of PRP go even deeper than surface-level with injections. By supercharging your own healing process, Dr. Cho can help you regain function with a shorter recovery time.

What are the benefits?

● Heal and strengthen soft tissues
● Thicken tendons and ligaments to protect against future injury
● Reduce pain and inflammation

Am I a candidate?
