PRP, or Platelet Rich Plasma, describes a process of collecting a person’s platelets to harness their regenerative capabilities. It contains growth factors obtained by drawing your blood in the same way lab tests are performed. Your blood is then processed and spun in a specialized FDA approved high speed centrifuge to separate the plasma from the red blood cells. Your treatment area is then rolled with a derma roller. A derma roller is a cylindrical shaped drum that is studded with tiny fine “micro needles”. Gently pricking your skin with the derma roller stimulates the creation of new skin cells and regeneration of damaged cells. Your own PRP is then massaged into the skin. The goal is to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, and the creation of new cells. Your skin will glow and immediately feel smoother and softer, with progressive improvements continuing for several months.
Oh, so impressive.
