PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma)
PRP performs by using your very own platelets to provoke the body to create new collagen. plasma contains molecules and proteins that provide nutrients to the skin’s cells, so it’s the healthiest, most natural way to improve the appearance of wrinkles, scars and other effects of aging.
What is PRP?
PRP Rejuvenation often incorporates fillers with PRP – which stands for Platelet Rich Plasma – to enhance facial shape and volume. It is a simple in-office nonsurgical procedure which uses a concentrated serum processed from your own blood to initiate the natural collagen building process.
How does it work?
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 that is then activated and injected into the skin.
The Key to Success –Tricking the cells into thinking there is injury
The serum is activated by the addition of simple calcium chloride. The activated plasma serum behaves the same way the body would respond if there were an actual injury – healing platelets rush in to create a rich fibrin mesh. This fibrin mesh in turn calls out to natural healing cells, releasing growth factors* and stimulating the process of the cells that create collagen to energize and heal.

PRP with Microneedling
When PRP is used with microneedling, it penetrates your skin through the tiny channels the microneedles create. The PRP maximizes the benefits from microneedling. PRP also addresses under-eye puffiness and dark circles, and lines to give you a more youthful, rejuvenated appearance. PRP is centrifuged using your own blood, limiting almost any side effects.
