What is Platelet Rich Plasma?
Platelet-rich plasma is a concentrated sample of platelets found in your own blood. Platelets are important for the healing process. Numerous growth factors and cytokines are also released by platelets. Together the platelets and growth factors play a key role in tissue regeneration and inflammation reduction.
How Does Platelet Rich Plasma Work?
The concentrated platelets release growth factors that signal your body’s stem cells to optimize healing and skin rejuvenation. The high concentration of growth factors and cytokines supports healing and tissue regeneration.
Injecting Platelet Rich Plasma for Facial Rejuvenation
By injecting platelet-rich plasma to specific areas, the concentrated platelets and growth factors collected from a patient’s own blood help stimulate stem cells. This results in collagen growth, natural healing, and tissue regeneration. Platelet-rich plasma for facial rejuvenation can improve texture, soften scars, smooth wrinkles and tighten the skin. Sometimes referred to as “liquid gold” the PRP injections provide regenerative power to increase the overall skin health. Our experienced professionals recommend 3 treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart.
