PRP Therapy is a groundbreaking non-operative treatment option that uses a natural product created from your own body.
The injections rely on a technique both simple and safe, using the regenerative and healing properties of platelets.
They have the ability to locally release growth factors, small molecules that act as messengers to initiate the process of skin regeneration. PRP also improves the elasticity, tone and thickness of the skin and contributes to the re-modelling of collagen fiber
Injections of A-PRP into the dermis, support, accelerate and increase the tissue regeneration process and are therefore good for scars (hypertrophic, keloid), stretch marks and acne scars.
It is also used for dark circles and eye bags – The growth factors found in blood platelets help to jumpstart the production of collagen and generates new capillaries while activating and rejuvenating the body’s cells and skin.
PRP is also used to stimulate hair growth, hair thinning or hair loss after delivery. Hair treated with chemicals that has thinned out can also be rejuvenated using PRP.
PRP is made from your own cells, virtually eliminating the possibility of negative side effects and risks associated with donor genetic materials such as allergies, hypersensitivity, and other adverse reactions. Many patients are also drawn to the natural qualities of using elements of their own body rather than chemicals or donated cells.
