Platelet Rich Plasma
For this Condition
Platelet Rich Plasma is often referred to as PRP and social media shows it is popular with celebrities. Blood is made up of plasma, red cells, white cells, and platelets. These platelets contain proteins called growth factors, which help in the healing of injuries. PRP is a plasma that contains more platelets than typically found in blood. We can increase the concentration of platelets in plasma, once separated from the blood, by a process called centrifugation. This plasma is then injected back into the bloodstream. It can also help to promote hair growth. You skin should feel boosted and more ‘elastic’ which will help with the appearance of wrinkles.
A sample of your blood will be taken and separated using a centrifuge. The plasma is then injected into the skin, promoting natural cell reaction to stimulate collagen and elastin production. As platelets work to improve injuries, any injured areas or areas of inflammation should be improved. The treatment also stimulates collagen production, giving your skin more ‘bounce’.
