For more than 20 years, Dr. Promila Banerjee has been helping men and women in Illinois meet their ultimate aesthetic goals. At Halo Laser & Aesthetic Medicine, we are happy to offer PRP therapy to men and women in Chicago, Schaumburg, Evanston, Northbrook, and the neighboring communities of Illinois.
PRP Case Study: "This May Be the Best I've Ever Felt"
You could say that Holly Shoumake is the “face” of Halo Medicine because she works at our front desk. But she's also had a PRP Facelift with beautiful results. Because she's so happy with the results she's seen, Holly wants to share her experience with PRP therapy.
Holly first became intrigued with PRP by witnessing the results in Dr. Banerjee’s clients. “I talked with happy clients daily who showed me before and after pictures with noticeably younger looking faces or thicker hair,” she says. “They looked fantastic. I got interested in the procedure and asked Dr. Banerjee about it.”
What is PRP Therapy?
PRP stands for platelet-rich plasma and is a part of a category of medicine called Regenerative Medicine. In simple terms, the process involves taking a small amount of your blood, concentrating your blood’s platelets, and then injecting the resulting platelet-rich plasma into an area of your body in need of regeneration.
At Halo, we use PRP therapy to:
- Perform non-invasive face lifts and breast lifts.
- Spur hair regrowth.
- Improve incontinence.
- Boost sexual function for woman and men.
After careful evaluation, Holly decided to proceed with multiple areas of PRP therapy, including PRP for facelift and hair regrowth.
How PRP Therapy Works
PRP Therapy begins with a simple blood draw that takes under five minutes. After the platelet-rich plasma is prepared, Dr. Banerjee injects it through a micro-needle into multiple places at the site of treatment. Holly said the procedure was not painful at all because the areas were numbed.
After treatment, it takes 4-6 weeks to start to see the results for the PRP facelift and 6-8 months to see the full impact of the PRP hair regrowth. The results last for up to 18 months.
Holly Sees and Feels ResultsIt has been several months since Holly’s therapy, and she says she's seeing an excellent response. After about a month, Holly could see the results on her face. Even better, people she knows started to comment that she looked younger and really refreshed—rejuvenated. She had not told many people about the procedure, which made it all the more validating that friends were noticing. “At about the 6-month mark, my husband looked at me one morning and asked if I had another procedure done," she recalls. "He was really seeing a difference! PRP therapy results get better and better over those first 6 months.” PRP stimulates the body’s natural collagen production, which is the “scaffolding” for skin. The additional, stronger scaffolding helps to reduce the skin’s laxity and reverse damage that contributes to wrinkles. Holly’s face looks smoother and tighter, while appearing very natural. At Halo Medicine, our philosophy is to help our clients look their best, and Dr. Banerjee carefully counsels each client on the expected outcomes of treatment options. Holly has also started to see new hair growth and is excited about achieving the full results in the future. “Dr. B. has helped me feel great inside and out," Holly says. "This may be the best I have ever felt. Everything she recommends is grounded in science, which I really like. I am really happy I did PRP therapy.”
