PRP Treatments

When it comes to rejuvenating your skin, why not trust your body’s own regenerative powers? With PRP (platelet-rich plasma) therapy at our Ankeny dermatology clinic and spa near Des Moines, IA, you can harness your plasma’s own growth factors and healing properties to give your skin and hair a natural boost.

How Does PRP Work?

PRP therapy works in 3 steps:

  1. Your experienced provider draws a small sample of blood from your arm, just like they would for a routine lab test.
  2. A centrifuge separates and purifies the plasma, also known as “liquid gold.”
  3. Your provider applies it to your skin or injects it into your face or scalp, depending on your treatment plan.

Because the plasma is taken from your own body, there’s no chance of an allergic reaction.

What Does PRP Treat?

PRP has many different cosmetic applications for both the skin and hair.

Facial Treatments

Sometimes called a “vampire facial,” a PRP facial stimulates collagen production in your skin to treat:

  • Fine lines
  • Laxity
  • Uneven texture
  • Scarring

PRP is an excellent addition to microneedling, which helps the PRP absorb more deeply into the skin and encourages faster and more effective healing.

Hair Restoration

When injected into the scalp, PRP’s growth factors encourage new hair growth for a fuller, healthier head of hair.

When Will I See Results After a PRP Treatment?

Some people may see results within a week, but it may take between 1 and 3 months to see the full effects of your treatment. Most people need about 3 sessions spaced a month or so apart to see the most dramatic results.

Where Do I Start?

What a wonderful place! Love coming here where I know the care and treatments are great and staff is well trained! Run don’t walk!

Love this place for many aesthetic services & dermatology. The customer service is amazing! Stef always treats me like family and does a great job! Stef has caught skin cancer early and I’m forever grateful. Jayden, the manager, is so friendly and has helped me get the best prices with Allē. Jayden even went above and beyond to help out a friend with saving money also! 5 stars!

Always enjoy going to Revive. The atmosphere and employees always make me feel welcomed and continue to produce results that make it the best med spa/clinic I've been to.

I love how much time this staff takes to answer questions. They are kind and very knowledgeable. I absolutely love working with Maria. She shows that she cares and always helps me with a smile on her face. She is just a genuinely nice gal who I trust and I know she always does her best to help me find what I need. She is not salesy and I appreciate that. I highly recommend Maria for your skincare needs.

Relaxed atmosphere with caring and hospitable staff. Procedures virtually painless with great results.

Tawnya was able to see me regarding some moles causing me concern. She removed the moles and sent them to the lab. As soon as my results were posted, she contacted me immediately with the news that everything was ok. I will be seeing her for regular checkups.

Dr Stef was absolutely amazing and went above and beyond to help our daughter out with some skin issues. I can’t recommend this place enough!
