Platelet Rich Plasma has a protracted history of being applied in dentistry, reconstructive surgery and orthopedic medicine. Today, it is also being used in other branches of medicine including dermatology, cosmetic facial rejuvenation and skin wound healing. Scientific studies ever since have proven that PRP generates new collagen when infused into the skin and recent studies reveal that PRP can ease sun damage as well as aging skin problems.
PRP is a natural product produced from your own body. Through a simple blood draw, a little amount of blood is drawn from an individual to be placed into a unique centrifuge machine, the blood is spun down in order to take out and concentrate the stem cells, growth factors and platelets that are very important for tissue healing. This little amount of blood with a high concentration of platelets and growth factors is referred to as Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP).
