PRP treatment has been used in modern medicine to stimulate the regeneration of tissues in order to avoid major surgery from conditions ranging from degenerative joint disease to tendon and ligament repairs. PRP is a small portion of your own blood, which has been expertly prepared to contain a concentration of platelets that are rich in what science calls “growth factors.” Whenever we are injured, the platelets in our blood containing these growth factors, rush to the wounded area to begin the healing process.
How does PRP work?
The aesthetic experts first draw a small amount of blood. Your blood is spun to separate the red blood cells, leaving a concentration of platelet-rich plasma. The PRP is then injected back into your body, applied directly to the area of treatment to deliver a concentrated dose of these super-healing platelets to cells that have been damaged.
By stimulating the regeneration of new, healthy cells in the areas where PRP is injected into your body your natural healing properties, effectively accomplishes the following:
- Stimulates hair growth
- Improves the appearance of acne and scarring
- Smooths the appearance of cellulite
- Rejuvenates skin on the face
- Reduces the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and sun damage
