Platelet Rich Plasma
PRP or Platelet Rich Plasma is used to help renew and replenish cells. It is obtained by taking your own blood through a needle stick, spinning it down in a centrifuge to separate the red cells from the white cells, and using as much of the middle layer as possible that contains the platelet-rich plasma. The plasma can then be applied topically during a microneedling/Collagen Pin procedure or injected similar to filler to stimulate cells from within.
PRP can also be used as an injectable on the face to help restore volume and collagen formation. Other uses can occur on the scalp to help with hair growth, or into the joints to help with joint regeneration.
