Want to Reverse effects of aging and sun damage? Try PRP
Platelet Rich Plasma, also known as PRP is an injection or Microneedling based therapy. PRP therapy uses your own blood to isolate plasma, where a concentrate of nutrients and platelets reside. If you are looking to reverse the effects of aging, hyperpigmentation or sun damage, then this is the right treatment for you.
Platelets are cells that naturally assist your body in healing and regenerating skin tissue. Platelets also contain Growth Factors, which are involved in stem cell migration and mobilization. Deployment of stem cells ultimately rejuvenates, and regenerates skin cells in the treatment area.
Studies have shown a drastic increase in the production of collagen and elastin in treatment area when platelet rich plasma is introduced into the skin. As a result, you will see fewer fine lines and wrinkles, improved skin elasticity, better skin texture, reduced hyperpigmentation from sun damage or age, and diminished appearance of scars.
PRP hair treatment has proven to activate dormant hair follicles to grow new hair.
