Platelets are a very important component in our blood. They help us with clotting and healing in our bodies. Platelets also carry multiple growth factors – important components for cell recovery and natural tissue regeneration. When injected into our own damaged skin tissue, growth factors can smooth away fine lines and wrinkles, soften scars and improve rough skin. This technology is called Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy or PRP. By using your own blood platelets, this procedure is considered very safe and is very well tolerated.
Anyone can benefit from PRP, making patients of all ages a good candidate. Younger patients in their 30s and 40s may want to use this procedure as a preventative option. PRP can significantly improve skin texture, tone and overall quality of the skin. The most exciting aspect is that it is your body, your blood and your plasma! Nothing artificial, nothing modified, making this technique the most natural way of rejuvenating your skin.
PRP is also widely used in sports medicine and for post-operative wound healing.
