Rejuvenate with PRP

Monday, October 05, 2015

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) rejuvenates skin and tissue, improves texture and fine lines, promotes collagen, and accelerates healing.

Platelet Rich Plasma comes from your own blood and contains several different growth factors and cytokines that stimulate healing. Once PRP is injected, it repairs and regenerates the tissue. Some of the growth factors and other cytokines present in PRP include:

  • • platelet-derived growth factor
  • • transforming growth factor beta
  • • fibroblast growth factor
  • • vascular endothelial growth factor
  • • epidermal growth factor
  • • Interleukin 8
  • • keratinocyte growth factor
  • • connective tissue growth factor

A small amount of blood is drawn and collected into a special tube that is then placed in a centrifuge. The PRP is separated from the red blood cells. It can then be injected into the face at the same time as facial fillers or applied directly to skin after SkinPen Micro-Needling or Laser Treatments like ProFractional or Halo.
