Platelet Rich Plasma Injections
What is the PRP
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Skin Rejuvenation and Tightening Platelet Rich Plasma also known as ‘Facial Stem Cell Regeneration’ or simply ‘Plasma Therapy’ came to Canada in 2005. Plasma is the part of our blood that is rich in platelets. Platelets are important for clotting our blood and repairing our body. Platelets also release ‘growth factor’ which stimulates stem cells to repair and produce new healthy tissue. Platelet rich plasma is obtained by separating it from your blood with a centrifuge. Because your own blood is used there is no danger of disease transmission or allergies.
