Platelet rich plasma, or PRP, treatment is a regenerative medicine therapy. It uses concentrated plasma derived from your blood, to stimulate at least five times the growth factors you normally produce to help you heal and regenerate your skin. It is used as a stand-alone treatment or in post-operative care to jump-start healing. The treatment entails extracting a small vial or tube of your blood. We then spin the tube in a centrifuge at a high speed to separate the red blood cells from the plasma and platelets. The plasma containing platelets is a clear yellow fluid that once injected helps your body heal and focus on mending. We usually combine this procedure with some type of micro-needling or laser treatment to help reverse the unwanted skin conditions and to give the healing factors a focus to work on. The plasma with activated platelets is delivered into your skin by injection with a micro-fine needle or device that minimizes discomfort and/or bruising. Brown spots, fines lines, large pores, dull skin, loss of volume and acne scars can benefit from platelet rich plasma (PRP) treatments.
