WHAT IS PLATELET RICH PLASMA (PRP)? Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is an innovative treatment that uses blood plasma containing high concentrations of platelets to rejuvenate and revitalise skin. Injecting the skin with PRP helps accelerate the process of tissue regeneration and repair. This new-age procedure has beneficial effects on acne scars, wrinkles, facial folds, crows feet and fine lines.
HOW DOES IT WORK? The treatment involves collecting blood from the client using specially designed tubes which are then centrifuged for 10 minutes. During the centrifugation a patented gel within the tubes isolates the PRP from the other required cells within the blood. Depending on the indication for its use, PRP is then applied by injection or topically in a combination with other treatments.
