Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
Platelet-rich plasma consists of two elements: plasma, or the liquid portion of blood, and platelets, a type of blood cell that plays an important role in healing throughout the body. PRP is microneedled into the skin to help heal wounds and produce extra collagen, as well as infuse vitamins and antioxidants back into the skin.
What is Platelet Rich Plasma?
PRP is a form of the body’s natural vitamins and antioxidants. It is spun down from blood cells. It is also a form of regenerative treatment that can amplify the natural growth factors your body uses to heal tissue and build collagen.
How is PRP used?
It can be used while microneedling or during any penetration of the skin. It can also be injected into parts of the skin that need extra collagen.
