On this episode we discuss all about your own blood, also called Platelet Rich Plasma or PRP. Here are some of the questions we answer:
1. What is PRP, and how is it beneficial for healing and anti-aging?
2. What can be the downsides of PRP, and why is it not consistent across all kinds of applications?
3. The preferred way to use PRP as an anti-aging, vampire facial, and hair rejuvenation technique
This week my guest is Dr. Farhan Taghizadeh, who is the founder of Arizona Facial Plastics. An accomplished plastic surgeon based in Phoenix, AZ, he completed his ENT training in 2004 at the University of Rochester, and journeyed to Switzerland for a fellowship specializing in facial cosmetic surgery to study and deepen his understanding of the complexity of the facial structure.
Fun fact, Dr. T has done over 3,500 facelifts.
This is a really interesting episode where we get to go a little under the surface, and behind the marketing of PRP and understand how it works a bit more. In addition, there is discussion of various other biological products that can be used alongside PRP for more enhanced results.
