    Platelet Rich Plasma, or PRP, uses concentrated injections of the patient’s own plasma cells for skin rejuvenation and tightening. This is done by drawing a sample of blood, and spinning it down in a centrifuge to make the blood components separate. The platelet-rich plasma layer is then isolated and injected into the skin. PRP stimulates the treated tissue causing mild inflammation that subsequently triggers the healing cascade. As new tissue is generated, new collagen is formed, which tightens and strengthens the skin, improving skin texture and tone. The effects of PRP can be noticed within 3 weeks, but full collagen regeneration takes 3 months to occur. PRP can be injected directly into treatment areas or combined with other treatments, such as microneedling, for an additive effect.
