What is Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy?
Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy is a non-surgical treatment that utilizes 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.
During a PRP Therapy treatment, a small amount of blood is drawn from you into a sterile tube in the exact same manner as a standard blood test. The tube containing your blood is placed into a centrifuge and spun to separate the plasma and platelets from the other blood components.
After a few minutes, the PRP layer is removed from the same tube and re-introduced into the body at the site to be treated. Using a small sterile needle, your practitioner will inject the PRP in and around the desired site.
The production of collagen-induced by the PRP will brighten, rejuvenate and rehydrate the skin even after the first treatment. A course of 3-4 treatments is recommended to see the full effects of this pioneering technique.
