About PRP Therapy
Dallas plastic surgeons Drs. Thornwell Parker and Kevin Hanz are pleased to offer platelet-rich plasma therapy to area men and women. PRP therapy is one of the hottest cosmetic procedures on the aesthetic market right now because of its natural method and promising results. It utilizes your own plasma to reinvigorate your skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. PRP promotes quicker healing with other cosmetic procedures and increases hair growth in areas that are becoming thin. It can also be combined with microneedling for the popular "Vampire Facial." If you are interested in PRP therapy, call Elevate Medical Spa and Cosmetic Surgery in Dallas, TX to schedule a private consultation. Drs. Parker and Hanz will be happy to discuss all the benefits of PRP and how it can help to improve your skin.

"This review is well overdue, but now you can be certain I am certain of my results! My skin wasn't horrid, but as it turns out, it needed work. I would get the usual lady cycle breakouts (even at 31) and the occasional pimple here and there. It would take 2-3 weeks to clear up. Who has time for that?! And then I was introduced to Felicia. Felicia put me on a ZO regimen in July. It took about a month for my skin texture to change. I did not even know that was a thing! My skin texture was smoother, brighter, and tighter! The compliments were rolling in!Fast forward to 6-7 months in, and if I may be self indulgent, am in love with my face. I always secretly wanted to be able to walk out of the house with no makeup (always sunscreen!) and look fantastic. With Felicia's guidance, I have been able to achieve that goal. My makeup consists of a tube of mascara, as I am confident enough not to hide behind foundation, CC cream, etc. It wasn't an overnight change, there are days where my face is itchy, there have been series of days of constant peeling and redness. However, I stuck with it, Felicia was a constant support, and I am so thankful I did."- R.B. / Yelp / Mar 13, 2018
"One of the most talented plastic surgeons. Dr Hanz is truly a miracle worker. Cosmetic surgery skills are amazing. He recently performed a very difficult hand surgery for my father in law. Amazing results. Highly recommend."- S.L. / Facebook / Feb 22, 2018
"Always a great result - I've received Botox treatments from Dr. Hanz and it always looks natural and I receive many compliments. Very happy with my care... Im contemplating other treatments and I wouldn't go anywhere else. His bedside manner is very pleasant as well.."- C. / RealSelf / Feb 01, 2018
"Breast Implant Removal and Liposuction - The staff at Elevate was amazing from scheduling my consultation down to the actual procedure. I had two separate procedures performed by Dr. Hanz the first one being a breast implant removal and the second one was liposuction. Dr. Hanz and his staff were very helpful in answering all of my questions and concerns. My continued care after the procedures has been substantial as well. I would highly recommend Dr. Hanz and his staff for any of your cosmetic needs."- H. / RealSelf / Jan 30, 2018
Men and women who have dynamic wrinkles, volume loss, uneven skin tone, and droopy skin are typically ideal candidates for PRP therapy. Since it naturally promotes collagen production, it is also a great treatment option for those with tired or dull-looking skin. Individuals with certain skin conditions, blood disorders, or anemia might not be eligible for PRP therapy.
Once you are seated comfortably in one of our private treatment rooms, a small amount of blood will be drawn from your arm and placed in a centrifuge machine. After about 15 minutes, the different components of the blood will be separated and ready for different types of application. There are a variety of ways to introduce PRP into the skin, including microneedling, fractional laser, Aquagold, or injection.
What to Expect
We believe that platelet-rich plasma naturally promotes collagen production and elastin to create a tighter and younger look to the skin. It may increase vascularity by aiding hair follicle growth and speed healing after cosmetic procedures by shortening the inflammatory phase of healing. Since it utilizes your own blood, there is reduced risk of adverse or allergic reactions. Naturally, the face may be a little red after treatment as some traces of red blood cells will be included in the plasma injection. A cold compress can be applied to the injection site to ease any discomfort or minor swelling. We recommend patients receive treatments every 4 – 6 weeks.
