PRP Skin Rejuvenation
What is platelet Rich Plasma?
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a non-surgical skin rejuvenation treatment that uses your own blood to help facilitate a glowing, youthful complexion. PRP treatments are a desired treatment for hair regrowth too. Our blood is made of two main components, red blood cells, and plasma. The plasma contains white blood cells and platelets, which are rich in growth factors. Growth factors play the role of messengers, signaling cells to function. The treatment is suitable for anybody experiencing the signs and ageing and wanting a youthful look.
Tissue growth and collagen production is stimulated to naturally rejuvenate the skin.
PRP rejuvenation stimulates:
1) Fibroblast proliferation
2) Stem cell proliferation and differentiation
3) Collagenesis and extra cellular matrix formation
