PRP Skin Treatment
A small amount of blood is drawn from you and placed in a sterile tube that is then spun down using a centrifuge. The centrifuge allows the components of your blood to separate. The red and white blood cells are divided from the platelets and the plasma.
Once centrifuged, the plasma contains the highest concentration of platelets and is called platelet-rich plasma, PRP.
The PRP is then placed or injected back into the skin and acts as a matrix that promotes your own collagen to grow as well as regenerates tissue thus leading to tightening of the skin. This skin tightening helps soften the appearance of wrinkles, creating a smoother skin texture and tone. The procedure itself is quick taking between 15-30 minutes and is relatively painless and requires no post-procedure care or time off.
