Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Facials and Injections
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy uses injections of a concentration of a patient’s own platelets to accelerate the healing of injured tendons, ligaments, muscles and joints. In this way, PRP injections use each individual patient's own healing system to improve musculoskeletal problems. It can also be used for facials to promote healing, collagen and elastin formation and to reduce the appearance of scars, lines and pigmentation. Another great use if for the treatment of hair loss.
What is Plasma?
Plasma is the golden liquid that is left behind after the red and white cells are removed from blood. It is comprised of proteins and antibodies and are essential in the body's immune response. The platelets and growth factors initiate the repair and rejuvenation properties of the body.
It works by taking a blood sample which is then spun in a centrifuge. This separates the plasma from the white and red blood cells. Following the Microneedling procedure, the plasma can be applied on to the skin, scalp or injected into joints, ligaments and muscles.
