PRP or platelet-rich plasma, is a therapy that uses a patient’s own blood to combat the process of aging skin. Growth factors are concentrated in platelets, and by imitating the generation of new collagen, these growth factors can help delay or even reverse some of the obvious indications of aging. PRP can be injected or micro-needled into the skin. This leads to a small amount of irritation, which starts the healing cascade. In order to aid in the healing process, platelets produce a variety of enzymes and growth factors. As a result, new collagen grows. In general, 3–4 treatments are recommended; however, for some people, more may be required. After the initial round of treatments, follow-up treatments may be performed roughly once a year to assist maintain and enhance outcomes.
A small amount of blood is taken from the patient.
1: The tube(s) are then put into a centrifuge, spinning the blood to separate the PRP from the red blood cells.
2: The PRP is then withdrawn into syringes and is activated by specific activator
3: The health care provider either injects or microneedles the PRP into the skin.
