Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
Platelet rich plasma (PRP) treatment is becoming a more popular option for giving a biological boost to the healing process.
Platelet-rich plasma therapy is a process whereby blood is drawn from the patient’s body in a manner similar to that of a blood test, which is then placed in a machine that separates the blood cells, platelets and serum.
The platelets help the body to repair itself by releasing growth factors, stimulating the skin cells to generate new tissue, in addition to improving skin tone as well as the rate of collagen production. This helps the skin grow back healthily, appearing more vibrant and plump.
How does it work?
PRP (Platelet- Rich-Plasma) blood being drawn from the patient and then put into a centrifuge machine which then separates the blood into 3 components- Red Blood Cells, White Blood Cells and platelets. We then extract the platelet component and inject it back into the face or area of body that needs rejuvenation.
Platelets release growth factors when injected into the skin which then helps it repair itself by stimulating cells to regenerate new tissue. This will in turn help with improving skin tone, texture and the overall condition of the skin. This treatment also promotes healthy skin growth and collagen production so the skin will appear healthier, more hydrated and plumper.
