Platelet Rich Plasma PRP/Collagen
“PRP” or Platelet Rich Plasma, is a treatment that stimulates cellular growth and regrowth. Platelets contain hundreds of proteins called “growth factors” that signal cells to function more efficiently.
It is an ‘autologous” procedure, which means your own blood is drawn and the PRP extracted from the red blood cells by a centrifuge. The PRP is then applied to the skin and “needled” into the upper layers of the dermis with a device resembling a pen.
PRP/Collagen Induction Therapy is an excellent treatment for improving skin texture (large pores, acne scarring) pigmentation and fine lines.
PRP can also be injected, similar to dermal filler, into the superficial areas (tear troughs, nasolabial folds) of the face to stimulate recollagenation and volume restoration.
PRP is also used for hair restoration, injecting tiny amounts of PRP into the scalp with a fine needle can stimulate hair regrowth where you are thinning and can thicken existing hair.
