What is PRP?
Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy is a non-surgical treatment that uses your own body’s healing abilities to stimulate skin and follicle recovery. It is a natural treatment that uses the platelets from your own blood. These activated platelets secrete and release at least 7 different growth factors which enhance the natural healing process of the skin and hair follicles (if treating the scalp for hair loss)
During a PRP Therapy treatment, a small amount of blood is drawn from you into a sterile tube (just like when you have a blood test). The tube is placed into a centrifuge and spun to separate the plasma and platelets from the other blood components. The plasma (the yellow serum left at the top of the tube once spun) is then removed from the tube and re-introduced into the body at the site to be treated.
This is done using a small sterile needle or a state of the art fusion device that channels the serum directly into the skin. Once injected the PRP goes to work under the skin, boosting collagen production. It is the production of collagen that will brighten, rejuvenate and rehydrate the skin even after the first treatment. A course of 3-4 treatments are recommended to see and benefit the full effects of this rejuvenating treatment.
