PLATELET RICH PLASMA (PRP)

Healing & Cell Growth.

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) has been in use for eras and promotes healing when injected. Lately, significant research and clinical evidence support PRP’s regenerative characteristics for treating scars, hair loss, fine lines, and skin rejuvenation.

Plasma is a blood component containing special factors or proteins that help blood clot if a cell is damaged or cut. Platelets also contain essential proteins to promote cell growth. The platelets, one type of blood cells, encompass growth factors that trigger speed healing, cell proliferation and stimulate tissue regeneration in the treated area.

PRP is plasma that consists of a high platelet concentration typically found in the blood. PRP isolates plasma from blood and concentrates it. It is obtained by drawing a minute amount of your blood and centrifuging it to segregate the PRP from the red and white blood cells. Your own PRP is then reinjected for clinical or cosmetic treatments.

PRP treatment involves injecting PRP into damaged tissues that stimulate your body to promote healing and grow new, healthy cells. The therapy enhances hair restoration and other cosmetic plastic surgery procedures. It is becoming popular with hair transplants as it helps increase the growth of transplanted hair roots while thickening existing hair.
