What Are PRP Treatments?
While many patients turn to fillers, we think it is important to offer an alternative for those who would prefer to combat aging naturally. In recent years, studies have shown that by utilizing the growth factors found in blood, it is possible to activate cell growth and repair to achieve younger-looking skin. Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) injections are treatments that involve drawing a patient’s blood, processing it so that only the enriched cells (platelet-rich plasma) remain, and injecting it into the facial tissue.
PRP contains growth factors that stimulate fibroblast activation (cells that start collagen production) and induce the synthesis of collagen and other components of the extracellular fibrin matrix, a scaffold that collagen builds itself upon. The PRP is harvested by placing a tube of blood in a special machine to separate the red cells and plasma.
