Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy, also known simply as platelet therapy, helps reverse the signs of aging by using your body’s natural healing processes. Doctors use PRP therapy to stop joint pain, but PRP can also stimulate the growth of hair and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Platelets clot blood to stop bleeding, of course, but they also contain powerful growth factors that promote healing. The PRP therapy procedure involves taking your platelets, concentrating them in a centrifuge then suspending them in the watery portion of blood (plasma). As its name suggests, the process creates a plasma compound that is rich in healing platelets. Your cosmetic aesthetician then injects the platelet rich plasma into the areas of your face that tend to develop wrinkles and lines, such as near your eyes, mouth and forehead. The effects of fillers are immediate, and there is no recovery time involved.
