What Is Platelet Rich Plasma Treatment?
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy involves the drawing of blood from the individual’s body, much like a blood test. The blood is then placed into a machine that segregates blood cells, platelets and serum; these elements are then reintroduced into the part of the body that needs treatment. This process is sometimes known as ‘Vampire’ therapy.
Growth factors are released by the platelets in the body, and they help to repair the body by triggering skin cells to produce fresh tissue as well as collagen. This improves skin health as it grows back full revitalised, appearing more radiant while the collagen also helps to improve the skin tone and smoothness. Depending on the patient, 2-3 treatments are recommended but this may vary and your doctor will consult you to determine a suitable number of sessions.
