What is Plasma-Rich Platelet (PRP)?
Plasma is one the primary components of blood, which is made up of red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets. We start by drawing the blood, and then we centrifuge it to separate the plasma from the red and white blood cells.The use of the patients own blood eliminates the chance of allergic reactions that are associated with blood transfusions.
PRP Therapy vs. Microneedling Alone
The use of PRP helps aid the bodies ability to heal damaged tissue and promote new cell growth. It is an advanced anti aging treatment.
Benefits of PRP include:
- Increased Collagen production
- Reduces fine lines and Wrinkles
- Tighter, Firmer Skin
- Improved moisture retention
You’ll likely look as if you have a sunburn following treatment. This can last the rest of the day, to several days or a week depending on treatment depth. Treat your skin gently and refrain from acid-containing products for a week or longer if advised by Dr. Riboni.
