A therapy used mainly for natural and safe skin rejuvenation, by using injections of a concentration of a patient's own blood platelets.
Plasma is the main liquid component of blood, which contains platelets, tiny cells that naturally help our body repair itself because of the proteins they contain, called growth factors.
PRP is suitable for all skin types and because there is no application of unnatural substances, it involves no risk of allergies or assymetries.
The treatment starts from a process called centrifugation, during which a small amount of patient’s blood is obtained and platelets are derived in order to be used in the treatment. When the PRP is injected into the skin, a number of growth factors get released and cause a healing cascade around the area.
Over the next following weeks, more and more growth factors get released from the platelets, which then stimulates the production of collagen in the skin, adding structure and volume to the face, reducing fine lines and giving the skin a brighter, more youthful appearance.
As the result of aging, our skin collagen levels drop, therefore PRP treatment uses our own growth factors that not only help with tissue repair but also stimulate collagen production, effectively combating the signs of skin aging.
