What is PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma)?

Many people have asked “What is PRP and how can it benefit me?”

PRP stands for platelet rich plasma which is a portion of your blood. Whole blood can be divided into plasma, platelets, white blood cells, and red blood cells. Platelet rich plasma has many growth factors which are used to completely rejuvenate skin and hair. These growth factors directly stimulate collagen and elastin. Collagen and elastin are part of the fiber matrix that hold our skin up and provide volumeAfter the age of 20, your body slows down its production of collagen and elastin, which can lead to dull and sagging skin.

We use PRP in conjunction with fraxel, clear & brilliant, and microneedling. These procedures cause micro injuries to the skin, which in itself causes your body send out an immune response to heal the micro injuries by releasing growth factors adding to the stimulation of collagen and elastin. We then apply PRP directly to the open channels caused by the micro injuries which amplifies collagen synthesis, elastin synthesis, and sends stem cells to regenerate and repair tissue. This leads to improved skin vitality, and less down time!
