Cellular Therapy Treatments for Facial and Body Rejuvenation in Asheville, NC
Platelets help your blood to clot when you are injured, but they also play a key role in healing tissues because they contain what are called growth factors: Platelet Derived Growth Factor (PDGF) and Transforming Growth Factor-Beta (TGFß). The growth factors not only facilitate healing, but also help encourage skin and collagen regeneration.
At Mountain Radiance, we use platelet rich plasma (PRP) derived from your own blood to perform a number of treatments that harness this healing capacity.
How does platelet rich plasma (PRP) therapy work?
For your comfort during treatment, we numb the area where blood is drawn (usually the arm). If you are having PRP injections for joint pain, we also numb the area being injected; if you are undergoing microneedling or hair restoration, we numb the treatment area, as well.
Next, we drawn your blood, spin it in a centrifuge that is made to concentrate platelets, then either inject or apply the extracted PRP for your treatment. To extract the PRP for your treatment at Mountain Radiance, we use the most advanced platelet concentrating system: Harvest Terumo BCT, a system that concentrates platelets six times more than the next leading brand of equipment.
What are the benefits of Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy?
The benefits of PRP are an improved healing process and skin regeneration. In practical terms, you may enjoy these benefits from the different PRP treatments we offer:
- Treats mild to moderate arthritis of the knee or shoulder
- Promotes regrowth of hair follicles
- Stimulate collagen and new skin growth
PRP treatment is revolutionary in its capacity to heal skin, bone, and joint tissues. It works by harnessing the healing power of your own cells. This is why we call it “cellular therapy.”
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Facial with Microneedling
If you have fine lines, wrinkles, or scars (such as acne scars), microneedling with platelet rich plasma (PRP) offers major results that rival those of CO2 laser skin resurfacing—but without the downtime.
What are the benefits of Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Facial with Microneedling?
After a PRP facial with microneedling, you will see long-lasting improvements: a firmer skin texture, reduced appearance of fine lines, smoother wrinkles, better skin elasticity (tightness), healthier-looking skin tone, and diminished appearance of blemishes and scars.

We apply a topical numbing medication to the skin to help you feel comfortable during treatment and eliminate any pain from microneedling.
Improvement can be seen within 1 month and continues to improve over time.
The beneficial results (tightened, brighter skin) of PRP microneedling come from new collagen growth that happens below the skin’s surface. As such, the results are very long-lasting, barring the natural aging process. Carefully protect your skin from sun damage to extend your results.
After PRP microneedling, your face will appear red for about a day. Unlike CO2 laser, which requries a 10-day recovery for aggressive treatment, you will recover within about 48 hrs, and can apply makeup after 24 hrs.
Your face will be red for about 2 days after the PRP microneedling facial.
If you see signs of aging and are hoping to recover a youthful tone and texture overall, the PRP facial may be a very beneficial treatment.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy for Hair Loss
Thinning hair is one of the most common cosmetic concerns, regardless of gender. Platelet rich plasma (PRP) therapy helps to increase the number of active hair follicles and thereby enhance hair growth. If you have an area of thinning hair, then this treatment will likely provide excellent results for you. (Unfortunately, PRP therapy does not work in areas where the scalp has lost all hair and the skin is shiny.)
What are the Benefits of Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy for Hair Loss?
The benefits of PRP over other treatments include:
- Treatments are performed in our office (no need for you to apply products at home, unless you are supplementing the treatment)
- Completely natural treatment, using your own cells
- We take measures to reduce your discomfort during treatment
At Mountain Radiance, we use local anesthetic to numb the scalp prior to treatment. Then, we apply the PRP by both injection and microneedling. For some patients, hair regrowth can be significant with PRP microneedling; however, results require patience. Results require at least 2 treatments and a wait of about 9 months before patients begin to see results. Also, PRP can can stimulate follicle regeneration in locations where the hair is thinning, but it will not regrow hair where the scalp is “shiny” with no hair follicles.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy for Hair Loss- Before and After
PRP Hair Restoration
While some providers do not offer anesthetic to reduce your discomfort during this treatment, we always use both a numbing cream and a local anesthetic block to reduce your discomfort. Our patients report that the treatment is very tolerable.
In our experience, it takes a minimum of 9 months before results are visible. The before and after images above show a patient 14 months after their first treatment; the patients underwent 2–3 treatments spaced approximately 2–3 months apart.
Hair restoration after PRP treatment lasts approximately 5 years, although some clients choose to have periodic re-treatments in between.
There can be mild post-procedure discomfort that may last several hours. The scalp is usually pain-free by the day following the procedure. You may shampoo the next morning.
You may return to work after the procedure, but most patients choose to take the rest of the day off.
If you have thinning hair, PRP will likely be an effective hair restoration treatment for you. It is effective no matter your gender, although we recommend some patients supplement treatment with oral or topical medications, as well.
Unfortunately, if you have areas that have lost all hair, then PRP therapy will likely be ineffective.
Knee & Shoulder Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Injections
For knee, shoulder, and minor tendon pain, platelet rich plasma (PRP) can provide relief that is longer lasting than cortisone. If you are considering surgery, such as arthroscopy, for knee pain, consider discussing your case with Mountain Radiance to see if PRP is right for you.
What are the benefits of Knee & Shoulder Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Injections?
PRP can provide longer lasting pain relief than cortisone injection. And it is natural; it uses your body’s own healing power to repair the issues causing pain in the joint (rather than laboratory-prepared gels or cortisone). Note that cortisone can have a deleterious effect if used too often.
In our experience, the pain relief from PRP may last over a year. PRP may need to be re-performed periodically, but not as often as cortisone injection. Not everybody needs re-treatment, and sometimes the beneficial results are particularly long lasting. One scientific study found that PRP on average lasted 6 months, with some patients experiencing relief that lasted over a year.

PRP For Hair Restoration
Generally there is mild discomfort during injection. Following the procedure, however, there is little to no discomfort.
Some patients find that their knee or shoulder begins to feel better the very next day after treatment; the pain should continue to improve for up to 6 months.
Beneficial effects of joint injection can last 6–12 months or longer.
Mild discomfort at the injection site may last a day or two.
There is little to no downtime, and there is almost no risk of any kind of adverse reaction to the procedure. PRP therapy uses your own cells to promote healing.
You may want to consider scheduling a consultation with us if you have either knee or shoulder pain that has led you to consider surgery.
