Your blood is comprised of both liquids and solids. The solid components are white blood cells, red blood cells, and platelets. Platelets work to enable blood clotting and also contain several growth factors. Plasma is the liquid component of your blood.
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a special preparation of your own blood that has a high concentration of platelets suspended in plasma. Research shows PRP to be an effective treatment for boosting your natural healing process.
Your practitioner first draws a small amount of your blood into a vial. The sample is placed into a machine called a centrifuge, which spins it at a high rate of speed.
That centrifugal force separates the components of your blood, allowing the platelets to be extracted and placed back into the isolated plasma. The end result is a solution packed with powerful healing properties.
PRP skin resurfacing is a combination treatment that begins with micro needling. This process uses a medical device covered in tiny, sterile needles to create hundreds of micro injuries across the surface of your skin.
Each of those tiny puncture wounds acts as a channel into the deeper layer of your skin and underlying tissue. Smoothing the prepared platelet-rich plasma over your skin after micro needling allows the PRP to penetrate deep into those channels where it can go to work enhancing your natural healing response.
Part of the reason why PRP skin resurfacing is such a popular treatment option is because it can improve the appearance of many different skin concerns within a few treatment sessions. Some of the skin issues PRP can treat include:
Fine lines and wrinkles
Uneven skin tone
Acne breakouts and scarring
Irregular skin texture
You’ll experience a few days of mild peeling, redness, and sensitivity, but the results of your treatment will be noticeable as these side effects subside, and improvements will continue for several weeks.
