What makes Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) a great treatment for skin and hair?
PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) is an excellent cosmetic injectable treatment for rejuvenating skin or preventing hair loss. The treatment involves removing a small amount of your own blood and then centrifuging it to isolate the plasma. This plasma contains growth factors which can stimulate your body’s healing response and boost the production of collagen, giving your skin a more youthful, rejuvenated appearance.
Unlike other injectables, PRP is a natural cosmetic and it’s very safe because it uses your own natural elements. It has long been recognized and used in hospitals and in sports medicine for its effective wound healing properties since the 1970s.
Once you’ve had PRP, you can expect results within 3-4 weeks and the results can last up to 12 months depending on the injection site. For thinning hair, PRP is recommended more frequently, usually every 3 months.
PRP has also been used in other applications such as reducing the visibility of acne scars as has also been found to be effective in treatment of rosacea.
