I had heard about PRP online and through social media – I thought it was just celebrity hype. Nothing prepared me for how much my skin would change for the better.
Platelet-rich plasma is derived from your own personal blood sample! Blood is drawn and then spun in a centrifuge to separate out the red and white blood cells from the protein-rich and platelet-rich plasma that is full of stem cells and growth factors. This plasma has powerful reparative properties which are why PRP injections have a long medical history (for decades they have been used to minimize inflammation and boost joint repair in athletes with injuries). In cosmetics, we apply the PRP topically and microneedle it into the skin. This helps speed up recovery from the microneedling procedure (collagen induction therapy) and helps stimulate skin repair and rejuvenation.
When combined with microneedling, PRP facial rejuvenation can address uneven skin tone and texture and mild to moderate signs of aging.
Most patients who are looking to improve the look, feel and health of their skin will likely benefit from PRP. The ideal candidates are patients between the ages of 18 and 65 (men and women), who are in good health and have no severe skin conditions or lesions.
