What is PRP? It stands for platelet rich plasma, which comes from your own blood. Our blood is composed of white and red blood cells, plasma and platelets. Platelets help the body heal from injuries.
For years now, dentists, athletes, and reconstructive surgeons have been injecting PRP into joints to help the body heal from injuries. Now these benefits are increasingly being used in medical aesthetics as well.
Platelets help heal and contain growth factors; the yellow liquid in the plasma is full of proteins and nutrients. During your treatment, a few vials of your blood will be collected. This is then spun in a centrifuge which separates the plasma from the platelets.
Once separated, the plasma rich platelet is then re-injected into the specific areas of your face; this regenerates tissue, promotes collagen growth, and speeds up your skin’s natural repair process. The result is a thicker dermis with softened wrinkles, diminished scars, and a better skin tone.
