How does PRP Work?
- Plasma is a primary component found in blood and is made up of many other elements such as red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets.
- Vascular Endothelial Growth Factors (VEGF) are one of the most important PRP components which functions to increase blood flow, oxygenation leading to increased collagen growth, tissue healing, and skin regeneration.
- First, blood is drawn from the patient. Through a process called centrifugation, the platelets are separated from the other blood cells, which then increases the platelet concentration within the plasma.
- The use of a patient’s own blood eliminates any allergic reactions associated with blood transfusions.
- This newly formed platelet rich plasma is then injected into the specific treatment area, so your skin regenerates collagen and elastic fibers more efficiently.
- These platelets aid in the body’s ability to heal damaged tissue and promote new cell growth because they contain hundreds of natural growth factors. PRP is an advanced anti-aging and healing treatment.
