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?

If you would like to stimulate your skin’s natural healing with PRP treatments at Revive, please request a consultation online or call (515) 965-5677 to get started. We look forward to seeing you!

Thank you so much for your kind review! We can't wait to see you again!

My fiancé and I are new to the Ankeny Iowa area and I needed to see a dermatologist. First and foremost, it is a fantastic environment. Not cluttered, clean, professional and polite. I saw Nikki Roetman the first visit. She was extremely knowledgeable and helpful. Very well versed outside of normal dermatology. The second visit I was blessed with the help of Dr Stef Gatica, she was very fun to work with. We were able to joke and have a good laugh. With the help of Aubrey I have had nothing but pleasant professional visits. Highly recommended to go hear and get taken care of the right way

Business Owner replied on Feb 9, 2022:

Hi, Megan. Thanks for taking the time to share your positive experience. We truly appreciate it!

I’m an NP that recently did a Botox training with Dr. Stef. She is very knowledgeable and skilled-an excellent resource for all things skin! I learned so much. I appreciated the 1:1 training. The day was fast paced which allowed for several opportunities for me to inject but also personalized enough for me to gain the skills to inject independently. I highly recommend.

Thank you Katie! I had a lot of fun with you and you did a great job! Can't wait to watch you grow in your skills!

Thank you Dr Stef for coming to our office to share your wealth of knowledge and skills. Your years of experience and technique methods that you offered during our training was amazing.

Thank you Melanie! It was so nice to meet all of you!

I had such a great day training with Stephanie on jawline and chin filler. It was my first time using cannula’s as well and she did an amazing job teaching and training. What a fun Friday

Thank you Lizzie! You have been a lot of fun to work with! - Dr. Stef

A friend with glowing skin recommended me to Revive to see skincare specialist Stephenie Ganske. I went in for my consultation, and began my skincare prescription. Within days my skin was already beginning to glow! Friends and family were commenting on my skin, asking me if I had on makeup ( I did not) what I was using! I coined the term "GanskeGlow" to describe my results. Stephenie is a guru, and I can not thank her enough for my renewed skin and of course that "GanskeGlow" 😉

Business Owner replied on Feb 18, 2022:

Vivette, thank you for your kind words! We love the term "GanskeGlow" that you came up with! Can't wait to see you soon!

I had a great experience at Revive! Dr Stef is very thorough and so easy to talk to about your skin health concerns. I am a permanent clinical Dermatology patient for sure!

Business Owner replied on Feb 18, 2022:
