What is PRP?
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is a non-surgical treatment that utilizes your own body’s healing abilities to stimulate skin healing, repair and recovery. It has the power to trigger your body’s own tissue regeneration potential. It is a natural treatment that uses the platelets from your own blood. When activated platelets secrete and release at least 7 different growth factors which enhance the natural healing processes. They also stimulate collagen growth of collagen to rejuvenate the skin, improve the blood supply to the tissues and can greatly improve skin tone and texture. It also reduces fine lines and wrinkles and can stimulate hair growth in the hair follicles.
PRP has been thoroughly investigated, and it is used for medical treatments. Doctors use PRP for nerve injury, tendinitis, osteoarthritis, cardiac muscle injury, bone repair and regeneration, plastic surgery and oral surgery. PRP helps treat sports injuries in professional athletes as well to stimulate healing for skin wounds and burns.
What does PRP treatment involve?
This innovative technique involves centrifuging a small sample of blood to separate it into different components. Your practitioner will extract the PRP component from the sample and prepare it for injection.
Using a small sterile needle, your practitioner will inject the PRP in and around the desired site.
Alternatively, some of our practitioners apply the PRP on the skin after a dermapen or dermaroller. This creates lots of tiny channels in the skin due to microneedling, which allows the PRP to penetrate into the tissues.
