Platelet rich plasma (PRP) is a technique that has been used in other areas of medicine to assist with healing. Since platelets are the first cells to arrive at an area of injury, they bring many growth factors with them, they accelerate healing.
In cosmetic medicine, PRP helps with healing after procedures, speeding time for recovery and increasing the growth of collagen where needed. PRP is literally taken from your own body. A small quantity of blood is drawn and placed in a centrifuge to separate out the plasma and platelets from the red blood cells. The PRP is then used in several different techniques. These techniques include:
- Skin laser
- Micro needling
- To lift and fill wrinkles with or without regular filler
- Hair loss treatment
