PRP + IPL Therapy

PRP after IPL therapy

As we age, signs of oxidative stress begin to appear on our skin. This oxidative stress can lead to cosmetic concerns such as hyperpigmentation, discoloration, uneven skin tone, wrinkles, and inflammation.1 These signs are especially noticeable and bothersome when they occur on our faces.

Many physicians are using Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) therapy to address these problems in patients. IPL is a non-invasive skin protocol that treats sun damage, brown spots, freckles, inflammation, and unwanted hair.

Similar to lasers, IPL works by producing controlled thermal damage to the skin. It uses specific wavelengths, pulse intervals, pulse durations, and fluences in a pulsed burst of light.2 However, IPL penetrates to the second layer of skin without harming the first layer, so it’s less damaging to the skin than lasers. IPL can be used to remove or minimize the appearance of:

  • Wrinkles
  • Age spots
  • Sun damage
  • Freckles
  • Birthmarks
  • Tattoos
  • Varicose veins
  • Rosacea
  • Port-wine stains
  • Unwanted hair

The skin’s pigment cells absorb the light energy which is converted to heat. The heat destroys the pigment to minimize the unwanted darker areas of the skin. In the case of unwanted hair, the light energy penetrates the hair follicles where it’s converted to heat, destroying the targeted follicles.

While intense pulsed light therapy is usually well-tolerated, it’s common for patients to experience redness and swelling after the procedure. It’s also possible to experience bruising, blistering, or infection after IPL treatment.3 In addition, intervals of three to four weeks between IPL treatments are required to allow for adequate healing of the skin.4

Fortunately, the addition of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy to IPL treatment sessions can decrease some of these negative side effects and shorten the time required between sessions.

When used after IPL, PRP helps reduce IPL side effects like inflammation, as well as decrease recovery time.

How does it work?

PRP stimulates the body’s innate healing cascade. When we experience a soft tissue injury, our body responds by delivering a rush of platelet cells. When these platelets are activated, they release several types of growth factors, proteins, and cytokines that play a fundamental role in cell regeneration and tissue healing.

But PRP takes the natural healing response one step further by separating platelets from other blood components and concentrating them. This specially prepared platelet-rich plasma contains 5 to 10 times the concentration of platelets found in whole blood. The concentrated PRP is then delivered into and around the site of injury via injection, stimulating and significantly strengthening the body’s healing response.5

Since PRP is an autologous therapy, using the patient’s own blood product, there is no risk of cross reactivity, disease transmission, or immune reaction.


To create a platelet-rich plasma preparation, the following steps are performed:

  1. A small sample of blood is drawn from the patient and injected into the Dr. PRP blood tube.
  2. The platelets are then separated from the other blood components and their concentration is increased using the Dr. PRP centrifuge.
  3. The resulting platelet-rich plasma is then injected into and around the targeted site of the patient.
  4. The concentrated growth factors contained in the plasma trigger a mild inflammatory response which effectively jump starts and strengthens the body’s own natural healing response.

The entire process takes approximately one hour, including preparation and recovery time. For a complete demonstration of each step of the process, view our instructional video.

How To Use DrPRP Kits


The Dr. PRP is an FDA-cleared medical device, holding the esteemed 510K clearance, meticulously designed to prepare patients' blood for PRP therapy quickly and efficiently.

Our patented design creates high-concentration and high-quality platelet-rich plasma that can be used to stimulate the healing process. This results in tissue regeneration at the targeted site, effectively accelerating normal healing processes.




  • Completely closed, sterile system.
  • Outside air is blocked with a double safety cap.
  • Since the processing is completed within the closed system, there is no risk of the PRP becoming contaminated.


  • Each kit comes pre-packaged.
  • The clear chambers ensure that you can see all the components of the blood sample.
  • The buffy coat layer is easily seen in the neck of the device, allowing you to precisely separate the components into the type of PRP you wish to produce.
  • You can even eliminate red blood cells from your final PRP product.


  • The closed system allows for more treatments in less time.
  • Customize your final PRP composition for use in different situations.
  • The PRP can and should be administered as soon as you prepare it with our kit – no advanced preparation is needed.


  • One kit holds 20 cc of fluid (3 cc of anti-coagulant + 17 cc of whole blood) and produces 4 cc of highly concentrated PRP.
  • The platelet recovery percentage of Dr. PRP is higher than the minimum recovery percentage of other similar products from our competitors.


  • Platelets require red and white blood cells to survive long-term. Unlike gel separators that capture the platelets within the gel, our kit allows you to accurately create consistently efficient PRP at the concentrations you want.


  • Our kit can recover 90% of platelets from a blood sample to produce the highest quality PRP.


  • The kit is now proudly holding the FDA 510K clearance.


  • According to the ISO 13485, our kit is made with a thorough gamma-ray sterilization system.
  • Made only with biocompatibility-certification completed raw materials.
