Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)
PRP is blood plasma with concentrated platelets. These platelets contain proteins and growth factors that are vital to initiating and accelerating the body’s natural reparative processes. PRP is a ground-breaking biotechnology that has shown promise in the healing of soft-tissue, ligaments, tendons and bones, promoting the development of new blood vessels, activating new collagen formation, and stimulating the wound healing process. We now are applying it to hair, skin and sexual rejuvenation!
How does it work?
Platelets contain healing growth factors. Those growth factors are like signal callers that give instructions to your tissue to regenerate and multiply.
A special collection tube is used to draw your blood and is placed into a centrifuge.
After 10 minutes of centrifugation, the platelets are concentrated and drawn up into a syringe.
Using a small needle, the platelets are then injected into area that needs improvement on your scalp.
