What is Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)?
PRP, or platelet-rich plasma, is a part of the blood that is high in growth factors and platelets. When extracted from the blood and applied to the skin, it releases enzymes that help heal the damaged area, inducing collagen production, and jumpstarting natural processes that slow with age. This translates to a tightening effect on the skin, revealing a healthier and younger-looking complexion.
PRP is used in combination with micro-needling, RF Microneedling, or Moxi Laser treatments. Before treatment begins, a blood sample is taken from your arm and placed into a specialized centrifuge machine, forming a concentration of PRP that is then applied to the skin during treatment. The growth factors and platelets work to speed up the wound healing process from the micro-injuries created with micro-needling, effectively regenerating the skin.
