About PRP Therapy
Chambersburg, PA board-certified dermatologist Dr. Rachel Day is pleased to perform platelet-rich plasma therapy (PRP) at OneSkin Dermatology to help refresh your appearance or help thicken your thinning hair. PRP therapy is one of the most sought-after cosmetic treatments in the industry due to its natural method and exciting results. The procedure uses a patient's very own plasma to stimulate your skin and hair follicles, concealing the appearance of wrinkles and improving the complexion or helping to stimulate hair follicles, depending on the goal of the treatment. PRP therapy can also be combined with microneedling for more dramatic effects. If you are interested in PRP therapy, contact OneSkin Dermatology to schedule a consultation. Dr. Day will be happy to discuss all the benefits of PRP and how it can help to improve your skin.
"I was so nervous and self conscious about going to the dermatologist for the first time and both Dr. Day and her staff were amazing!

"I cannot speak too highly of Dr. Day and her staff at OneSkin Dermatology. Everyone there is friendly, courteous, and helpful. I have been seeing Dr. Day for my annual checkup for several years and have been impressed with her thoroughness and professionalism. On an occasion when I needed minor surgery, she performed the procedure so quickly and deftly that she was done before I knew she had started. I also admire the confidence and determination she has shown to leave the big corporate healthcare world and start her own practice. In the past, I had tried several dermatologists before seeing Dr. Day. I am confident she is the finest dermatologist in this area."- D.N. / Google / Jul 03, 2020

"Dr. Day is AMAZING!!! I had a baby in November and my skin took a huge toll. Acne flared up and I didn’t know what to do anymore. So I broke down and made an appointment with OneSkin Dermotology. When I first met Dr. Day I was excited, when you see a young doctor you think of new medicine and new treatments. So I was really looking forward to see what my treatment plan would be. Not to mention, the office is BEAUTIFUL and relaxing! She made a wonderful plan for my skin and recommended drug store products that work just as good as the expensive ones! So far we are about a month and a half in and my skin is night and day difference and I am so pleased! We still have some work to do, but it looks amazing! Thank you to Dr. Day and her wonderful and kind team! 100% recommend! Worth the money, but honestly the price is totally affordable!"- C.S. / Google / Mar 06, 2020

PRP Therapy Ideal Candidates
Those who want to improve their skin tone and texture or thicken their hair are typically the best candidates for PRP. Since it promotes collagen production naturally, it's also a fantastic treatment choice for rejuvenating tired-looking skin. PRP hair therapy stimulates your hair follicles and can also help to thicken thinning hair on the scalp. Inform Dr. Day about any blood disorders, skin conditions, or anemia to determine whether it's safe for you to receive PRP therapy.
PRP Therapy Procedure Technique
After you are comfortably seated in one of our secluded minor procedure rooms, a bit of blood will be pulled from one of your arms and placed in a centrifuge machine. Usually, we draw around four tablespoons worth of blood. After about 15 minutes, the different components of the blood will be separated and ready for injection. We will load your concentrated plasma into a sterile syringe and inject it into the predetermined locations. The PRP procedure typically only takes about five minutes but can vary patient to patient.
What to Expect with PRP Therapy
Plasma from PRP therapy naturally promotes the production of collagen and elastin to create tighter and younger looking skin or thicker hair. Since it utilizes your own blood, the risk of adverse or allergic reactions is basically nonexistent. You should expect the treatment area to be a bit red after treatment as traces of red blood cells are included in the plasma injection. A cold pack can be used on the treatment site to minimize discomfort and swelling. We recommend you receive treatments in 4 – 6 week intervals to maintain results.
