What is PRP?
PRP is a natural product created from your own body. Platelet rich plasma (PRP) is concentrated blood plasma which contains approximately three to five times the number of platelets found in normal circulating blood. In addition, it contains growth factors, and healing properties that revitalize the skin by increasing blood circulation and stimulating collagen production, which results in facial rejuvenation and hair growth.
The PRP preparation takes about 10 to 15 minutes. A small amount of blood is drawn from you and placed in a sterile tube that is spun down in a centrifuge to separate the different components of the blood. Red and white blood cells are divided from the platelets and the plasma (the clear fluid). This plasma now contains a higher than normal number of platelets and is called platelet rich plasma, or PRP.
