What is PRP?

PRP, also known as platelet rich plasma, is a naturally occurring substance that is produced from the body's own blood. To obtain PRP, a blood sample is taken and then processed in a centrifuge to separate its various components. The platelets and plasma are isolated from the red blood cells and white blood cells. The resulting plasma which contains a higher concentration of platelets is referred to as PRP. This platelet-rich plasma also contains growth factors derived from platelets. One of the advantages of PRP is that it is derived from the individual's own blood, eliminating the risk of allergic reactions. PRP therapy has become an important treatment modality for aesthetic facial rejuvenation.

PRP can be used in conjunction with hyaluronic acid fillers or it can be used alone.
