What is PRP?
Platelet-rich plasma, or PRP, is derived from your own blood. Platelets are the component of your blood that allows it to clot and heal your wounds, and they’re derived and concentrated to create PRP.
PRP contains growth factors that promote regeneration and youthfulness when applied to your skin. It can also promote hair growth in bald spots. If you have injuries, PRP helps to speed up the healing process.

PRP can treat a variety of conditions and unwanted features, most of which come with age. These include:
- Wrinkles and lines
- Hair Loss
- Sun damage
- Urinary incontinence
- Vaginal dryness
- Stretch marks
- Erectile Dysfunction
During an initial consultation, Dr. Milanes assesses your goals, needs, and habits to determine if PRP treatments are your best option. Then, he works with you to choose which treatment can be most effective for you.

"I was so impressed by the outstanding service I got during my visit to Luminary MD. I purchased a PRP with micro needling. I was impressed with the outstanding results!! I am an easy bruiser, and expected to have a few after this procedure. BUT I did not have a single one! I will be back for more PRPs. They offer SO many amazing procedures, I will be trying others too!"- C. / Office Visit / Apr 01, 2020
"I went in today for information on various treatments they offer as well as the a PRFM Facial. Aside from being extremely friendly and knowledgeable, the no pressure atmosphere was a pleasant surprise by both the doctor and his nurse. I was advised on the benefits of the various treatments I inquired about in a "good, better,best" scenario. Loved and appreciated the honesty and I was able to make my decision decisively. Dr. Milanes uses the latest, state of the art equipment and has the research information to back it up. I did the PRFM Facial w/ injections. Looking forward to seeing the results within the week. Dr. Milanes concentrates on complete wellness, as well as physical appearance. I am beyond excited to find a provider who specializes in both. I will now be a loyal and lifelong client!"- j / Office Visit / Dec 07, 2019
"I had a good experience here today with Dr. Milanes and Hanan. They explained my PRFM facial with microneedling thoroughly prior to the treatment and were listening well to any questions I had. I did not feel rushed at all or pressured to buy anything further today, which I have found to be the case at other places. I liked their comfortable vibe and clean office. I will be back!"- t / Office Visit / Nov 07, 2019
"I have been struggling with my acne scars for years, and I had done alot of treatments because of it. In the past, I've done 6 sessions of microneedling, and I see a slight improvement. However, after just one time treatment with Luminary I see a better improvement. My scars are more lifted, and even my coworkers thinks my skin m Is more glowy and smoother."- A.S / Other / Dec 07, 2019

What is PRFM?
PRFM stands for Platelet-rich fibrin matrix (PRFM) which is derived from PRP then Calcium is added to it converting it to PRFM. When PRP is converted into PRFM, it becomes a long acting version of it. This means that your hair follicles or any target area being injected gets a longer exposure to the growth factors thus reaping the benefits longer.
How is PRFM different from PRP?
Longer Life: Because of the longer life, the treatment areas are exposed to the growth factors for much longer. When PRP is injected, the growth factors peak at 12 hours and the product dissolves in 24 hours. With PRFM, the growth factors peak at 72 hrs, and the product dissolves in 7 days. This is like taking an injection for a medication weekly vs having to take it daily.
