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, which then accelerate healing. PRP is literally taken from your own body. A small quantity of blood is drawn from your arm and placed in a centrifuge to separate out the plasma and platelets from the red blood cells. This is drawn up into a syringe and used in various parts of the body to accelerate healing.
In cosmetic medicine, PRP helps with healing after procedures, speeding time for recovery and increasing the growth of collagen where needed. At True Vision Center in Hawaii, PRP is used in several different techniques, including:
- Skin laser to increase and accelerate collagen formation
- Micro needling, also to increase and accelerate collagen formation (In other offices, this is called the “Vampire Facial”.)
- To lift and fill wrinkles with or without regular filler
- Hair loss treatment, as it helps heal damaged follicles
PRP is a great option to be sure that your procedure has the best results possible. Be sure to ask about it when scheduling your next treatment at True Vision Center!
