PRP therapy is one of the most popular and innovative cosmetic treatments in the aesthetic industry due to its natural method and exciting results.
How is the treatment performed?
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatment consists in drawing blood from the patient which is then running through a specialized centrifuge. This process separates the blood from the plasma and platelets. This plasma contains three to five times more platelets, growth factors, and active proteins for tissue and injury healing.
When PRP is placed back into the skin by injection, it initiates a localized stem cell response. Following the treatment, this stem cell response attracts collagen-producing cells called fibroblasts. The fibroblasts replace tissue that has been damaged or lost through the aging process with healthy skin that looks refreshed and rejuvenated.
Also, PRP stimulates the skin to reduce the prevalence of wrinkles, and to prompt hair growth and restore hair volume and thickness.
There is not much downtime with the procedure, and typically not much discomfort. There is no risk for reaction or rejection since the procedure utilizes your own blood. PRP has many uses and may be combined with other treatments to maximize efficacy and results.
