Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) treatment is a non-surgical procedure that helps to heal and regenerate the skin or the tissue. Plasma is the liquid portion of whole blood; platelets are blood cells, and their activation plays a key role in the body’s natural healing process.
PRP injections are prepared by taking from one to a few tubes of the patient’s blood and running it through a centrifuge to concentrate the platelets. These activated platelets are then injected directly into the injured or diseased body tissue.
This releases growth factors that stimulate and increase the number of reparative cells the body produces.
Improve the appearance of the skin’s complexion. Reduce fine lines, boost skin quality, and help the skin to be more even-toned.
