PRP INJECTION THERAPY
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) injection therapy is a cutting edge treatment used to rejuvenate the skin by injecting a patient’s own platelets, growth factors, and naturally occurring products to turn the tide on the aging process in the areas of skin that are treated. These mediators stimulate collagen production, increase the strength and thickness of the skin, improve drooping and wrinkles, and greatly enhance the surface appearance of the skin. The goal of aesthetic PRP therapy is to repair and improve deficits created by the aging process.
The procedure involves drawing the patient’s own blood, processing the blood in a specialized centrifuge, collecting the PRP component, and injecting the product into select areas of the skin that may benefit from the therapy. Popular treatment areas include saggy and wrinkled lower eyelids; wrinkled, puckered and aging skin surrounding the mouth; the drooping neck; and hair loss in the scalp (alopecia). PRP may also be combined with micro-needling to increase the benefits of micro-needling.
