PRP Therapy (Platelet Rich Plasma)

What is PRP Therapy?

PRP Therapy: Platelet-rich plasma is a concentration of your own platelets that will be injected into the skin to accelerate the rejuvenating and repairing of your skin. This therapy is highly safe with no side effect, resistance, and infection. PRP injection is prepared by taking your own blood and running it through a centrifuge to concentrate the platelets containing growth factors. These activated platelets are then injected into the face, particularly the areas with wrinkles, cheek grooves, and acne scars. It also helps rejuvenate facial skin by stimulating collagen production, allowing for the elimination of lines, folds, wrinkles, uneven skin tone, and dark under-eye circles. The results from PRP therapy are natural looking and subtle.
