What is PRP therapy?
An innovative technique that uses the plasma from your own blood to help rejuvenate your skin, Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) treatments can help regenerate tissue by stimulating the body’s natural healing processes. A small volume of blood is drawn from you and placed in a centrifuge to separate the contents into red blood cells, Platelet Rich Plasma, Platelet Poor Plasma, and what’s known as the buffy coat—a collection of white blood cells and plasma. The Platelet Rich Plasma and buffy coat are minimally processed to create the rejuvenating formula. This fluid is then administered into targeted areas via injection. As a result, collagen production is stimulated, stem cells and growth factors flow to the area, and tissue remodeling begins. Over the next few weeks and months, the skin in the treated area should become firmer, smoother, and more youthful-looking. PRP treatments can be used to rejuvenate the face, neck, jawline, chest, décolletage, back of the hands, arms, and to boost hair growth on the scalp.
PRP therapy has been in use in the medical industry for over 20 years to enhance wound healing and to repair damage. PRP treatments are a popular healing options because they use the patient’s own tissue to repair the concern, all but eliminating the risk of an allergic reaction. Some of the reported benefits of this procedure include reduced fine lines, enhanced skin texture and tone (particularly with “crepey” skin), improved appearance of scars, and increased volume through collagen stimulation. PRP therapy requires little to no downtime, as it is an injection-based treatment, and the outcome can be very natural-looking.
