What is PRP?
Platelet Rich Plasma is derived from patients’ own blood. Along with the benefit of using your own tissue, there is the added advantage of mobilizing your own growth factors for your benefit.
Platelets and white blood cells exert a synergistic effect, resulting in the release of a variety of growth factors at the injection sites.
This promotes the production of collagen and wound healing, leading to an improvement in skin texture, fine lines and wrinkles.
Results are generally visible at 3 weeks and improve gradually over ensuing months with improvement in texture and tone.
The benefits to PRP include minimal downtime, safe with minimal risk, and most importantly, natural looking results.
