Understanding Platelet-Rich Plasma Treatment
Unlike other anti-aging treatment products, platelet-rich plasma treatment utilizes a patient's blood to promote healing. Inside a person’s blood is a liquid substance called plasma. Plasma contains water, proteins, platelets, red blood cells and white blood cells. These all go throughout the person’s body to take critical nutrients to systems, organs and tissues.
Platelets are a crucial component for the body to be able to heal itself. By applying the platelets to specific areas of the body, we can promote healing on a cellular level. We can also use it to help promote healing in the skin and repair damaged skin cells.

With this information, we will customize the treatment to the patient's needs. Once we determine this is the most effective treatment for the patient, we will begin treatment.
We will then draw the patient's blood and separate the PRP from the rest of the blood components. Our team will inject the concentration directly into the person’s face or other portions of the body. Multiple injections may be necessary, depending on the patient’s condition and the severity of the issue.
