Platelet-Rich Plasma treatment (referred to as PRP) combines skin resurfacing with the application of blood-derived growth factors to significantly improve the surface of the skin, the appearance of acne scars, hyperpigmentation, stretch marks, skin texture, fine lines, and wrinkles. The two-step treatment first begins with Micro-Needling or Fraxel to stimulate the body’s own natural healing process to increase collagen production and replace damaged skin cells with fresh, healthy ones. This initial step is enhanced by application of your body’s own nutrient rich plasma, releasing several essential growth factors and proteins in the treated area. A minimum of eight growth factors are activated, which serve a wide range of functions including regulating cell growth, repairing damaged tissue, and promoting collagen production and healthy cell production. PRP is the perfect solution to reverse dull skin, revealing a smooth, glowing complexion.Book An Appointment

- How is PRP derived?
PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma) is derived from whole blood. During your visit, a small amount of blood is drawn from the patient, similar to a basic lab test. The patient’s blood is then placed into a centrifuge. During the centrifugation process, the red blood cells, white blood cells, and other inflammatory cytokines are separated from plasma, which contains platelets along with several platelet derived growth factors. Once the platelet-rich plasma is separated, it is drawn up into a syringe and either micro-needled into the skin, or applied directly to the skin post-Fraxel.
