Facial Platelet Rich Plasma or PRP works on the simple basis is that of utilizing your own natural platelets to instruct the body to create new collagen for tauter, smoother and better-toned skin. Utilized in various ways, with or without fillers, the platelet solutions can be introduced with injections or by using an automated microneedling or as a topical addition to resurfacing.
What is PRP?
PRP– which stands for Platelet Rich Plasma – to enhance facial shape and volume. It is a simple in-office nonsurgical procedure which uses a concentrated serum processed from your own blood to call in the natural collagen building process.
How does it work?
A small vial of blood is taken from your arm – less than that normally taken for routine blood tests. The blood is then placed in a vial and spun in a centrifuge to separate the red blood cells and plasma. The process concentrates the platelet count to about 4X normal. It is this platelet-rich plasma – often called “liquid gold” – that is then activated and injected into the skin – or applied topically in a surface regeneration action.
