Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy is an innovative, natural, non-surgical treatment that utilizes the healing properties of platelets from your own blood for facial and skin rejuvenation. This process helps improve complexion, skin texture and can restore lost facial volume.
Blood is composed of these key components: red blood cells, white blood cells, plasma and platelets. During this process, we extract your blood and encourage separation of the blood cells from your plasma and platelets in a process called centrifuge. This is then re-injected into the skin to stimulate collagen and new skin cells. This stimulation of collagen-producing cells, called fibroblasts, replace tissue that has been damaged due to the aging process with healthy skin that appears refreshed, replenished and rejuvenated. PRP harnesses the beneficial functions of the patients own platelets and therefore there is no risk of allergy or rejection of the treatment.
Blood will be extracted from your arm and filtered in a test tube. The PRP is then injected into lines and wrinkles. The remainder of the plasma is then injected over the surface of the skin.
Some people may experience slight swelling, redness or heat in the area of treatment. These are common side effects and are part of the activation of your platelets. Because a volume of fluid has been administered, swelling may naturally occur. Bruising also may occur. These effects are temporary and will dissipate within a few days.
