Platelet Rich Plasma Injections

Platelet rich plasma, or PRP, is blood plasma with concentrated platelets and other growth factors. The concentrated platelets found in PRP contain huge reservoirs of bioactive proteins, including growth factors and signaling proteins that are vital to initiate and accelerate tissue repair and rejuvenation. In response to injury or tissue damage, your body naturally recruits platelets and white blood cells from the blood to initiate healing response. To prepare PRP, a small amount of blood is taken from your arm. The blood is then placed in a centrifuge. The centrifuge spins and separates the platelets from the rest of the blood components. The entire process takes less than 15 minutes and increases the concentration of the platelets and growth factors up to 600%. From your own blood, the separated platelets are taken and re-injected into the targeted area. Depending on the severity of your area of concern, one to four PRP injections may be required to achieve your desired outcome, scheduled four weeks apart. Platelet rich plasma therapy has quickly become a favorite among celebrities, including actress Angelina Jolie and reality TV star and socialite Kim Kardashian, because it offers quick and lasting results with literally no downtime. PRP’s most exciting feature is that it is your body, your blood, your plasma. Nothing artificial, nothing modified and therefore 100% safe. Here are just a few of the areas that can be effectively treated with PRP:

  • Eye area
  • Décolletage
  • Crepey neck
  • Back of hands
  • Full face rejuvenation
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Improves skin tone and texture
  • Rejuvenation for other areas of the body
