PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma)
PRP or Platelet Rich Plasma is a therapy that promotes faster healing, a quicker recovery, and therefore less down time after aesthetic procedures. It contains growth factors and is safe for all skin types. It has been used in facial rejuvenation since 2006 by plastic and facial surgeons as well as in the aesthetic arena.
What is PRP?
Platelet Rich Plasma is a component of your blood that contains special proteins that promote your blood to clot. More importantly, it promotes cell growth. When applying your own PRP to your injured skin during an aesthetic procedure, it will stimulate your body to grow new, healthy cells. With these new, healthy cells, you will notice an improvement to your skin texture, tone, and wrinkles due to the collagen synthesis. Due to the concentrated amount of PDGF (platelet derived growth factors) that will be applied to your skin, it will also help promote faster healing allowing you to get back to your normal routine.
One small vial of blood will be drawn by one of our healthcare professionals during your appointment. It is then spun in a centrifuge to separate your red blood cells from your platelets. Once this process and your aesthetic procedure is complete, your Platelet Rich Plasma will be placed on your skin. The process is not painful and is quite soothing after your procedure.
