Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Treatment
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is a cutting-edge advancement in Regenerative Medicine in which the body's own cells are utilized to facilitate natural processes to heal itself. PRP can be used in both facial and bodily rejuvenation.
Platelets are an important part of a body’s healing system that prevent blood loss and repair blood vessel injuries. These platelets contain many proteins known as growth factors which are important in cellular healing. This in turn rebuilds the tissue and restores collagen and elastic fibers, which improve a healing wound.
The objective behind PRP therapy is to increase the platelet count in injured or damaged area in order to facilitate the body's own healing abilities and accelerate cell rejuvenation. Platelet-Rich Plasma therapy extracts these amazing healing platelets from the body and reintroduces them into specific body parts to promote healing, and tissue rejuvenation.
