What is it, and what is significant about PRP?
PRP stands for Platelet Rich Plasma. This is the plasma section of the blood that is composed mainly of your own platelets.
Two teaspoons of your blood is centrifuged or spun so that the individual components are separated, leaving the remaining fluid or plasma rich in platelets
With any injury, the platelets automatically migrate to the site, initiating a healing response by releasing numerous growth factors and other proteins which promote healing.
The PRP injection delivers a significant number of platelets into the skin or injured tissues. It enhances the body's natural healing capacity, leading to a more efficient and thorough restoration of the tissue to a healthy state
The skin cosmetic effects include increase of collagen, tightening of the skin and reduction of pores, texture problems and discolouration
