How does PRP therapy improve my skin?

PRP therapy is helping to revolutionize skin rejuvenation for both men and women.  It is a simple, natural process that uses the body’s own healing system to tackle cellular issues that contribute to the aging of the skin.  But how does PRP therapy improve your skin.

What is PRP Therapy?

Platelet rich plasma (PRP) therapy is a procedure in which platelets from the blood are used to promote tissue repair, and stimulate cell regeneration.

The plasma preparation is made by drawing a small amount of blood from the patient, which is spun in a centrifuge at high speed, to isolate the platelets.  The PRP is then injected into the patient’s skin.   

How does PRP therapy improve the skin?

  • Enhances skin tone and texture

The growth of new skin cells tightens and firms the skin, thereby enhancing skin tone and texture.   PRP gets rid of discoloration and dullness, and reduces scars and blemishes.

  • Reduces wrinkles

PRP also stimulates the production of collagen, which is a vital protein that keeps the skin plump and hydrated.  Increasing collagen levels therefore reduces the appearance of wrinkles, and restores the youthful appearance of the skin.

  • Increases skin volume

PRP adds volume to the skin, so it’s an effective way to fill in sunken facial areas such as the cheeks, and below the eyes. 

PRP therapy improves the health and quality of the skin because the platelets contain growth factors that nourish the skin, and encourage the regeneration of new cells.  PRP can be combined with microneedling for even greater skin rejuvenation benefits.
