Platelet-rich plasma therapy (PRP) is a proactive cosmetic treatment that uses the patient’s own platelet-rich plasma to improve the condition of the skin, as well as to advance the healing process after surgery and other procedures. Now available at Dermatology + Plastic Surgery, led by board-certified dermatologist Anita Saluja, MD, and double board-certified plastic surgeon Rebecca Novo, MD, the PRP facial provides a minimally invasive, all-natural cosmetic rejuvenation treatment for residents of Melbourne, Indialantic, Viera, Brevard County, the beaches, and surrounding areas.
Your blood is essentially made up of four components: red blood cells, white blood cells, plasma, and platelets. PRP therapy is a proactive cosmetic treatment that utilizes a patient’s own blood platelets, nutrients, and growth factors to trigger new cell growth, improving the condition and texture of the skin, as well as the hair (if used on the scalp). For hair health, we recommend Nutrafol supplementation at home with scalp treatments for the best results.
We combine microneedling or laser resurfacing with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy to achieve results without surgery. During this procedure, blood is drawn from the patient and then processed through a centrifuge machine to isolate the platelets with the understanding that platelets contain healing qualities and growth factors that rejuvenate the skin as well as connective tissue, such as tendons, ligaments, and cartilage. Once the plasma has been enhanced with platelets, this platelet-rich plasma is injected, needled, or lasered back into target areas in the face and neck, according to the individual’s specific concerns. As part of the body’s natural healing process, platelets and other components in human blood circulate to the treatment area. Platelets release numerous growth factors that respond to injury and initiate and promote the proper conditions for healing. With PRP, your recovery is speedy.
Clinical studies have shown that the increased concentration of growth factors in PRP can potentially speed up the healing process when platelet-rich plasma is delivered directly to a specific injury site, assisting with the healing of tendons and joints in that region. In much the same way, PRP solution can also be used to rejuvenate and heal damaged skin tissue in the facial region, restoring firmness, elasticity, and smoothness, diminishing the appearance of pores, while reinforcing the cellular structure of the skin. In the scalp, health is improved, and hair growth is more supported. PRP may be repeated every 3 months for optimal and ongoing results.
PRP therapy is making incredible strides in the field of cosmetic dermatology in many applications. By utilizing the healing properties of a patient’s own blood, safe and effective results become visible with a speedy recovery. The procedure is known for improving skin tone, elasticity, firmness, volume, and boosting collagen production, providing continued improvements to the skin. PRP is also known for its therapeutic and restorative benefits for scalp and hair health. PRP of the scalp is done when there is early hair loss, post-hair transplantation, or as a proactive measure to support hair growth.
PRP is a relatively inexpensive procedure in the cosmetic field for rejuvenating the skin, but prices vary according to the size of the treatment area. An estimated range is $600-$1200. To keep the costs of PRP therapy manageable for all of our patients, our office proudly accepts flexible payment options.

I have been to several Dermatology practices through the years, some in Florida, some in the Northeast. I started using For Your Best Self when they opened in Suntree. I use them for all my fillers, skin care products, skin cancer checks and facials. The physicians and all the staff are very caring and skilled. The hydro facial is wonderful. I highly recommend them. They will make you look and feel you best!
