Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is an injectable cosmetic treatment that uses your platelet-rich plasma to accelerate your body’s production of collagen and elastin. Platelets are components of your blood, and the main function of platelets is to stop bleeding. Platelets also have granules that, when activated, release growth factors. Growth factors attract more platelets to the treatment areas and stimulate collagen production and other processes that are great for healing. The result is an improvement in wrinkles, fine lines, textures, and tone.
Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF) is a fibrin matrix that includes platelet cytokines growth factors and cells that help promote skin rejuvenation, hair growth, and wound healing. PRF lasts much longer than PRP, and the platelets in PRF are thought to promote faster healing. PRF is innated into the face to fill folds and wrinkles, plump hollows under the eyes, and to improve texture and tone. PRF is also injected into the scalp to aid with hair restoration.
Microneedling used with PRF is the premier standard for skin rejuvenation. The treatment combines collagen induction therapy or microneedling with PRF. Treatments to the face, neck, and decollatage are non-invasive, quick, and require little recovery time.
Microneedling with PRP can be used as a masque procedure or injected directly into the skin to enhance anti-aging treatments.
PRP/PRF helps with the creation of new blood vessels and also regenerates tissues. Scar treatments with PRP injections minimize scars by stimulating connective tissue cells called fibroblasts. As skin-related cells are produced, new collagen is created.
PRP is injected into your scalp to increase blood flow and nourishment to hair follicles. PRP works with the stem cells in the hair shaft and helps to maintain hair growth or regrowth. PRP increases shaft size and thickness and helps to decrease hair loss.
