PRP: Platelet-Rich Plasma is a more natural approach to cosmetic injectables with long-lasting results (12 to 18 months). With this procedure, we collect the patient’s blood into a special blood collection tube (just like a regular blood test). The blood is then spun in a centrifuge at high speed, which separates the red blood cells from the plasma and platelets. The red blood cells are then separated from the plasma and the platelets.
The plasma and platelets’ clear yellow fluid is drawn into a syringe and injected it directly into the patient’s skin. Ultimately the growth factors released by the platelets will stimulate the fibroblasts in the skin that work to produce new collagen, which will improve the skin’s overall structure and firmness.
