Platelet rich plasma, or PRP, is a completely biocompatible treatment, as the PRP is derived from your own blood. Platelets are a factor in human blood that are responsible for promoting blood clotting and healing and have been used in the medical field to foster wound healing for decades.
In more recent years it has been discovered that platelets can also be used to rejuvenate aging skin or scalp due to the high concentration of growth factors in PRP that encourage growth and renewal. At Calabasas Dermatology, we deliver some of the best results in PRP Westlake Village and its surrounding areas have to offer.
You can trust our team of healthcare providers at Calabasas Dermatology Center. Every member of our staff is highly-trained and professional, and all treatments are under the guidance of our award-winning, board-certified dermatologist, Dr. Hal Weitzbuch. Expect your treatment to produce remarkable results, as we use the most advanced equipment and treatment procedures.
PRP is prepared by drawing the patient's blood and using a centrifuge to separate out the platelets from the red blood cells that make up most of the blood. The process takes only minutes.
The high-platelet solution is then injected into the area where new growth and renewal is needed. Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy is the practice of injecting this regenerative product into the skin to promote cellular growth and repair and treat wrinkles and lines, as well as increase natural skin elasticity, or to promote hair regrowth.
PRP therapy has been established as an effective way to trigger collagen production, naturally tightening skin surrounding the injection site. It is becoming a popular treatment for skin renewal and regeneration and is commonly used in the medical field to speed the healing of injuries to tendons, ligaments and muscles.
Why not use your own body’s natural healing factors to rejuvenate and restore your skin or hair?
Our PRP therapy in Malibu also provides a solution and treatment for hair loss by stimulating follicles to produce hair, particularly when the strength and thickness of the strands has diminished. PRP usually requires multiple injections, and local anesthesia may be used if patients find the injections uncomfortable. It can take several sessions to produce optimal results in hair restoration or skin rejuvenation.
The Calabasas Dermatology Center offers PRP therapy as part of a wide array of cosmetic therapies. However, it is different from other anti-aging cosmetic treatments such as Restylane and Juvéderm, some of the most popular injectable fillers. The procedure uses the patient's own blood for platelet extraction and injection, offering a natural alternative to injectable fillers.
If your facial skin has begun to show the signs of age, with lines, wrinkles and creases beginning to develop, it is possible to bring back the glow of youth without the need to inject synthetic substances. Many of our patients have a high interest in this treatment, as it is both safe and effective. We often advise PRP therapy in conjunction with microneedling to help your skin look smoother, younger, and fresher.
Rather than treating individual wrinkles and lines with a filler, why not help your skin regenerate naturally? Talk to us about our PRP therapy in Westlake Village.

Your skin is in a condition unique to you. Only a full evaluation of the problems you are experiencing will help us determine which treatment, or combination of treatments, will produce the improvements you envision. You will have minimal downtime after PRP therapy, although your skin may have mild swelling, appear red, or be slightly bruised, all of which usually disappears within one to three days, with minimal risk of side effects.
