PLATELET RICH PLASMA

PRP or Platelet Rich Plasma is a rich source of Growth Factors. PRP is derived from stem cells in the bone marrow. PRP promotes collagen growth, and skin healing. PRP has been used also in operating rooms for several decades to help with wound healing.

A small vial of blood is taken from your arm – less than that normally taken for routine blood tests. The blood is then placed in a vial and spun in a centrifuge to separate the red blood cells and plasma. The process concentrates the platelet count to about 4X normal. It is this platelet-rich plasma – often called “liquid gold” – that is then activated and injected into the skin – or applied topically in a surface regeneration action.
