What Is PRP?

PRP is a non-invasive regenerative technology that utilizes plasma from your own body to enhance tissue healing, it contains many factors essential for cell survival including nutrients, vitamins, hormones, electrolytes, growth factors, and proteins. Platelets from your own blood are used to stimulate collagen, elastin and cellular growth. PRP therapy can be used as a stand alone therapy or in conjunction with other treatments.

How it works?

PRP injections are prepared by taking anywhere from one to a few tubes of your own blood. It is then run (“spun down”) in a centrifuge to separate the blood into its various components: red and white blood cells, plasma, platelets, etc. The platelets are collected and concentrated to anywhere from 2 to 8 times their normal number. The platelets are then mixed into a blood plasma liquid base and injected directly into the target area. 

Benefits of PRP?

Because PRP stimulates the production of collagen and other proteins within skin cells, it offers many benefits, including: 

Improve wrinkles and fine lines

Improving the appearance of scars, sun damage, and dark spots

Improving textural damage with dull dry skin
