What Is Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy (PRP)?
Platelet Rich Plasma, or PRP, is a natural product from your own body. When blood is drawn and spun down in a centrifuge to separate the different component of the blood.
The platelets and plasma are separated from the red blood cells, the plasma now contains a higher concentration of platelets, hence Platelet Rich Plasma.

How Does It Work?
Platelets are the wound healing components of the blood. The PRP once injected into the skin acts as a matrix that promotes your own collagen to grow, regenerates tissue, and thus rejuvenates the skin. You can do PRP by itself, pair it with fillers, or add it to a fractional laser treatment.
What To Expect?
A small amount of blood will be drawn from you. While the PRP is being prepared, you will be topically numbed. Once the PRP is activated and ready it will be injected. The procedure is relatively painless. Mild swelling, bruising, and redness are typical after a treatment. The PRP is made from your own cells, virtually eliminating any type of allergic reaction.
Benefits When Paired With Fractional Laser:
22 women participated in a study, published by the American Society of Dermatological Surgery that combined PRP with fractional laser to analyze the effects on rejuvenating their skin. The results of the study showed that skin rejuvenation was better with PRP, healing time was faster, redness was decreased, and overall patient satisfaction was higher.
The goal of PRP rejuvenation is to improve tone, texture, stimulate collagen, soften lines and pores. Results begin to show 3-4 weeks after the treatment and continue to improve with time.
