Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Skin Repair

Surgery information

PRP treatment is typically used to create a baby face. PRP can be injected into the injured area after extracting various growth factors from a patient's blood. Only taking 30 minutes therapy can generate new tissues in a gloomy and non-elastic face.

The platelets are separated from other blood cells and their concentration is increased during a process called centrifugation. The plasma contains not only a lot of platelets but also growth factors which are needed to grow cells, cytokine delivering signals between cells, and mononuclear cells which are very important in converting to stem cells. These are highly effective in healing injuries, skin repair and anti-aging, and preventing pigmentation by repairing the damaged blood vessels.

01. Activated platelets are injected into the skin
02. Growth factors from platelets attract stem cells
