Platelet Rich Plasma
The Platelet Rich Plasma is highly beneficial for in increasing collagen formation, skin tightening, connective tissue regeneration, and skin thickness rejuvenation. It is ideal for any wrinkling or sagging in the forehead, eye, chin, cheek, neck, or chest areas, and for the hands. PRP’s growth factors activate cells in the body to prepare for the healing and generation of new capillaries and collagen in the skin. In addition, the platelets initiate hemostasis (the stopping of bleeding) and balance the inflammatory response which is necessary during the healing process.
How it works:
The provider draws blood from the patient, the blood is then placed in a centrifuge, which spins for 5 to 10 minutes to separate the growth factors in the platelet-rich plasma from the red blood cells. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections promote faster healing and transferring these growth-factor proteins to other areas of the body essentially helping any damaged area.
