Platelet Rich Plasma for Skin Rejuvenation

The beauty world's buzzing about a new anti-ageing treatment that may works wonders for the skin. Platelet Rich Plasma or PRP is an emerging treatment that offers a promising solution to rejuvenate skin naturally.

The science behind Platelet Rich Plasma is to utilize the body's natural ability to heal itself. Blood is made up of red blood cells, white blood cells, platelets and plasma. Platelets play a fundamental role in blood clotting and release healing proteins called growth factors. Platelet Rich Plasma is plasma that has been enriched with platelets via an FDA approved process known as centrifugation. As a concentrated source of platelets, Platelet Rich Plasma contains and releases many growth factors that accelerates tissue and wound healing. When Platelet Rich Plasma is injected underneath the skin, this healing process results in increased collagen synthesis.
