Platelet Rich Plasma therapy is a process that utilizes the platelets in our blood, which are teeming with growth factors, to help promote the natural growth of healthy, normal skin and hair.
This process is minimally invasive, natural, virtually pain-free and has been clinically proven for nearly 30 years to be highly effective at rejuvenating the skin to a more vibrant, youthful state. Because it is so natural and successful at promoting healthy skin, it is often used in addition to other procedures, such as microneedling, as a catalyst for proper skin rejuvenation.
The History Of Platelet Rich Plasma
The procedure was developed in the 1970s, however it was not mainstreamed until the 90s because the equipment was too expensive. The first recorded medical PRP treatment was in Italy in 1987. From then on it has gained traction and been used in nearly every medical field due to its natural proclivity to promote growth factors.
In 2009, the USDA approved two methods of preparation. Since 2009, 100s of the world’s most elite professional athletes have endorsed the healing abilities of PRP including, Hines Ward, Tiger Woods, Rafael Nadal and Kobe Bryant.
What To Expect For Your PRP Procedure
PRP for skin rejuvenation is a quick and simple procedure that should take about 1hour and will require no recovery time.
The first step is to take a simple blood draw. This blood will then be inserted and spun in a centrifuge to isolate the platelets which contain a plethora of growth factors, such as collagen. Before the drawn blood is finished with the centrifugation process and ready to be reintroduced into your body.
Once the skin is clean and the centrifugation process is complete, your physician will then reintroduce the PRP with an injection into the desired area in which you want the PRP to be most effective.
The Regenerative Benefits Of PRP
By using the natural growth factors within the blood, PRP is able to aid in the success of most cosmetic procedures. Patients may elect to combine PRP with another desired beauty treatment for the best possible chance of achieving their beauty and health goals.
