PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma) Injections in Etobicoke, Toronto

The experienced dermatologists and staff at Kingsway Dermatology & Cosmetic Centre are dedicated to providing you with the most effective and innovative cosmetic and medical dermatology services available, so you can achieve the aesthetic and skin care goals you’ve always dreamed of.

One of our cutting-edge cosmetic dermatology treatments is PRP: a natural treatment to soften fine lines on the face, neck, and chest, and even in areas around the knees and elbows to improve skin quality.

PRP is also a primary treatment to promote hair retention and growth for those that are experiencing significant hair fallout.
But what is PRP, and how does it work?

About PRP Therapy

PRP stands for platelet-rich plasma. For this treatment, the platelets, which are blood cells that promote the healing of wounds, are extracted from your own cells. A small amount of blood is withdrawn, and then the platelets in the blood are isolated using a centrifuge to extract them. Then, these platelets are injected back into the treatment areas.

These platelets release growth factors that stimulate the production of collagen and new tissue, so this therapy is also used to promote wound healing. As a cosmetic treatment, your body will respond naturally to these cells, and you will see improvement in your skin’s tone and texture.

How PRP Is Used

PLATELET RICH FIBRIN

Adding fibrin allows the PRP to form a clot naturally without addition of any chemicals and without red and white blood cells that normally present in a blood clot that are pro-inflammatory. Benefits include:

  • Long lasting growth factor stimulation – ie more stimulation of collagen synthesis and repair as the growth factors will be released slowly from the fibrin clot
  • Provides a ‘scaffolding’ : this is a 3-dimensional structure around which new collagen fibres will be layered down (like putting bricks up on the frame of a house)

REGENERATING COLLAGEN BOOSTER

Drench your skin in nutrients and growth factors with Kingsway’s signature transdermal application of your own blood platelets AND non-cross linked hyaluronic acid placed directly into the middle layer of the epidermis called the mesoderm. This megawatt treatment is optimal for hydration, healing, collagen induction, tissue repair and tightening.

PRP with MICRONEEDLING

Supercharge collagen inducing microneedling by adding PRP to boost collagen and help reduce inflammation in the skin.

All the staff at Kingsway are super friendly and the clinic is beautiful. I’ve been seeing Katie for laser treatments over the last year and am so pleased with the results so far. Katie is so lovely - she takes the time to explain everything, to discuss your skincare routines and is always open to collaborate and discuss what’s working or not working for you. She always checks in and is as excited about your results as you are!

I was very impressed with the quality and efficiency of the care I received, as well as how “patient-centred” the reservations, advice on where to park, together with the follow up activities of the clinic - a first class model of how to run a clinic! During my follow up appointment this week, Dr. Velykoredko was very efficient, pleasant to talk to and better still gave me a clean bill of health! It is so nice to see this clinic being so focused on the patient.

My doctor referred me to Dr. Poulos. On that visit, and since, the professionalism, genuine care and friendly support from Dr. Poulos, Kelly, Katie, Sanja and Chi have been exceptional. Their knowledge and attention to detail are impressive. The Centre itself is modern, clean, and well-maintained – a comfortable environment to be in. The state-of-the-art equipment and technology are reassuring and demonstrate their commitment to staying up-to-date with the latest advancements. Not to be excluded, the front office reception staff invariably provide timely and welcoming service and support. I highly recommend Kingsway Dermatology.

PRP is a proven treatment for those experiencing hair loss.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is PRP Treatment Right for Me?

PRP is a popular choice for patients seeking a more natural solution for their cosmetic dermatology needs, but it is not the right choice for everyone. When you come to Kingsway for your consultation, we’ll speak with you about your skin concerns, lifestyle, and habits, and review your medical history to see if you’d be a good fit for PRP. If not, we can recommend one of several other skin rejuvenation procedures we offer.

For hair loss, we recommend getting a diagnosis from your family doctor prior to coming in to discuss if PRP for hair retention and growth is right for you.

Does PRP Hurt?

PRP treatments are generally not painful. You may feel a prick of pain during the initial blood draw, and shallower pricking sensations at the injection sites. Depending on the sensitivity level of the treatment area, we may use a topical anesthetic to minimize discomfort.

Is There Downtime for PRP Procedures?

The length of your PRP session will depend on the treatment areas and other factors, but tend to run approximately forty-five minutes to an hour. After this, you can resume most of your daily activities, but some may be limited as your body begins its natural healing process. At your consultation, we’ll be able to give you a better idea of what your personal aftercare plan will look like.

When Will I See PRP Results?

Most patients see results from PRP injections within a few weeks, and will improve over the next 1 to 2 months as your body’s increased collagen production continues. Results tend to last for 1 to 2 years, but this may depend on external factors like sun exposure, age, hormone levels, and your cells’ natural rate of regeneration. Many patients choose to do a maintenance session once or twice a year to maintain their results and achieve continued benefits of PRP.
