Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy has been used safely and effectively in medicine for more than 20 years.
Platelet-rich plasma is known for its ability to spur soft-tissue growth. With this type of regenerative therapy, a PRP centrifuge concentrates platelets, which contain the natural growth factors the body uses to heal itself. With the correct PRP centrifuge and process, this is a quick and relatively simple procedure. PRP therapy has become increasingly popular with patients because their natural defenses stimulate the healing process.
PRP can be injected directly under facial tissue to promote collagen production. This is a natural way to add a small amount of volume and improve health of the skin. Common areas for PRP injections include undereye for dark circles and hollowness, face and neck & scars.
PRP with microneedling is a noninvasive facial rejuvenation that has little downtime with maximum results. Using PRP while creating channels with microneedling in the skin, allows for maximum absorption of growth factors and plasma. This promotes collagen formation and smoother skin. PRP with microneedling improves texture for fine lines, wrinkles and scarring. It also improves overall appearance and brightens the skin.
