At some point, everyone starts to see some telltale signs of aging — a few extra lines across your forehead, a few dark spots on your face, or a receding hairline. Fortunately, with PRP injections you now have more control over these cosmetic imperfections. Once used exclusively in hospitals to accelerate the healing process after surgery, PRP is now used in the cosmetic industry to address wrinkles, hard-to-treat scars, and hair loss.

What Is PRP?
PRP stands for platelet-rich plasma. Platelets are one of the primary components in blood and they contain proteins that are responsible for the healing of injuries and blood clotting. Platelets can be extracted from a person’s blood and concentrated, so they can be injected back into the body to target areas that need repair or healing.
PRP injections contain growth factors that stimulate new blood vessel formation. The creation of new blood vessels is important for improving the overall color and tone of the skin.
Platelet-rich plasma stimulated new collagen formation which helps make the outermost layers of your skin appear smoother, and fuller. Since the injection uses your own blood, many people prefer them over synthetic injections since there is no risk of an allergic reaction.
Platelets contain active growth factors that are responsible for healing as well as promoting collagen and elastin production. When used to reduce the appearance of scars, PRP stimulates the growth of healthy new tissue resulting in skin that looks healthier and more rejuvenated.
PRP injections are a good solution for both men and women who are experiencing hair loss. The platelet-rich plasma naturally improves the health of existing hair follicles while stimulating the development of new ones.

Platelet activation plays a key role in the body’s natural healing process. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy uses injections of a concentration of the patient’s own platelets to accelerate the healing of injured tendons, ligaments, muscles, and joints. In this way, PRP injections use each individual patient’s own healing system to improve musculoskeletal problems.
PRP injections are prepared by taking anywhere from one to a few tubes of the patient’s own blood and running it through a centrifuge to concentrate the platelets. The activated platelets are then injected directly into the injured or diseased body tissue, releasing growth factors that stimulate and increase the number of reparative cells.
The side effects of PRP injections are very limited since the body does not reject a person’s own blood.
