Platelet rich plasma (PRP)

Platelet-rich plasma, or PRP, is a substance that’s thought to promote healing when injected. Plasma is a component of your blood that contains special “factors,” or proteins, that help your blood to clot. It also contains proteins that support cell growth.

 

 

Procedure:

 

A healthcare professional will draw a sample of your blood. The amount of the sample depends on where the PRP will be injected.  The blood is then placed into a centrifuge. This is a machine that spins around very quickly, causing the blood components to separate. The separation process takes about 15 minutes. The nurse takes the separated plasma and prepares it for injection into the affected area.

Outcome:​

  • Reduction in fine lines and wrinkles

  • Enhancement of skin texture and tone

  • Tightening of skin and improvement in skin laxity

  • Improvement of crepey skin

  • Generation of new collagen fibers
