The PRP is abbreviated by the initials of the so-called “platelet rich plasma”. PRP is a non-surgical alternative in aiding against hair loss and skin rejuvenation (especially for face). The procedure on average takes around 45 minutes. The result of spinning the blood in a centrifuge with a special protocol is obtained. As a result of this processing, the cells in are sorted in layers. A special section of these cells is taken and injected into the scalp or face skin.
PRP is also a facial rejuvenation treatment that uses your own plasma to stimulate collagen production and cell migration, allowing for the elimination of lines, folds, and wrinkles. Results from PRP therapy are natural looking and subtle, and they can last for as long as a year. What’s more, PRP is minimally invasive, has no risk of allergic reaction, and can be used to treat nearly any area of the body without risks of side-effects, making it ideal for patients who are not interested in or are not good candidates for injectable fillers.
