Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections use components of your body’s own blood that contain a high concentration of proteins and growth factors. These proteins and growth factors are efficient in stimulating a healing response in damaged tissue areas. The body utilizes platelets, growth factors, and white blood cells to initiate and accelerate the growth of new tissue, and to repair injuries related to aging, sun damage, and other conditions. By adding to the platelet count, collagen and elastin production within the skin are stimulated, diminishing fine lines and tightening the contours of the face.
Injecting platelet-rich plasma into aging or damaged skin is an effective yet minimally invasive treatment option. By enhancing the body’s natural healing abilities, patients are able to enjoy a smoother, more youthful look and skin that is revitalized and refreshed.
