What is PRP?
Platelet rich plasma (PRP) has increased concentration of platelets suspended in plasma after the red blood cells are separated from the blood’s plasma in a centrifuge. It works like this: The patient’s own blood is collected and centrifuged until it separates into 3 layers: platelet poor plasma (PPP), platelet rich plasma (PRP), and red blood cells.
PRP plays a fundamental role in skin rejuvenation, anti-aging and hair restoration. Growth factors from the PRP are involved in key stages of natural healing and regenerative processes. When injected or applied with microneedling, it stimulates cells to make collagen, and in hairy areas to produce more hair.
PRP treatment can be combined with microneedling procedures for enhanced skin rejuvenation and results superior to microneedling alone.
PRP can be injected into different areas of the face, such as under the eyes, on the cheeks, around the nose and around the mouth to improve skin texture and laxity, and, in combination with Juvéderm dermal fillers to improve skin volume.
PRP can be also injected into the scalp to promote hair growth. This procedure is safe for both men and women.
