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.

"Dr. Day and her staff were very welcoming, helpful and thorough during my recent first visit. It was so nice to be able to get an appointment within the next day. I love the technology they use such as iPads and a texting feature which allows you to send pictures/messages to the nurses and staff if needed. I had a question after my appointment and Dr. Day personally called me back in regards to my question which truly meant so much as a patient. For a Doctor to take time out of her busy day/schedule to personally return a phone call to a patient isn’t very common these days and it did not go unnoticed. It is very apparent that Dr. Day cares about her patients. Continue to treat with your heart and you will never go wrong! I will definitely be back!"- S.L. / Google / Aug 28, 2020

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.
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
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.
