PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) Facial Treatment
PRP naturally utilizes your own platelets to create new collagen for tighter and younger looking skin and has no risk of allergy or rejection with this treatment. It can be used with fillers for a more dramatic full look or just by itself. When done with fillers, the normal lasting time of the fillers is extended do to the PRP.
What is PRP?
PRP is a nonsurgical in-office procedure. A small amount of venous blood and isolates the red cells from a platelet concentrate, embedded in its own plasma. The entire process takes less then 10 minutes. Then we use your concentrated platelets from your blood to increase the volume and rejuvenation of the cheeks, lips and other fascial areas.
How PRP works?
The platelets contain hundreds of proteins called growth factors which are very important in the healing and regenerating tissue. PRP is plasma with many more platelets than what is typically found in blood. The concentration of platelets — and, thereby, the concentration of growth factors — can be 5 to 10 times greater (or richer) than usual.
The growth factors will help create the younger fuller looking skin..
