Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
Platelet Rich Plasma, or PRP is quickly becoming one of the top treatments for skin rejuvenation as well as wrinkle reduction.
It is also being successfully used in conjunction with Micro-Needling to treat hair loss, remodel acne scars, and reduce the appearance of stretch marks. Not only is it popular, it’s highly effective!
What is PRP?
PRP is your body’s own platelet rich plasma. These platelets, when injected under the skin, cause a cascade of collagen and elastin producing actions that give you a more vibrant youthful appearance. And the best part is it’s all natural! Platelet Rich Plasma is made from your own cells, virtually eliminating the possibility of negative side effects.
How is PRP done?
First, a small amount of a patient’s blood is drawn into a sterile tube by one of our physicians. The tube is placed in a special centrifuge that spins and separates the bloods components into red blood cells, white blood cells and platelet rich plasma. While your Platelet Rich Plasma is being “spun”, your skin will be gently cleansed and prepared for the treatment. The Platelet Rich Plasma is then injected into the skin, or used in conjunction with Micro-Needling to deliver unsurpassed, non surgical facial rejuvenation, scar revision or hair restoration.
