What is PRP?
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) is blood plasma with a high platelet concentration. Platelets contain essential bio-active proteins that act as growth factors and that accelerate the repair and regeneration of tissues. They are found in blood and can be extracted through a process called centrifugation. In addition, PRP promotes the growth of new blood vessels and new collagen, which is required for healing.
The science of PRP is the foundation for many cosmetic procedures that celebrities undergo to maintain their youth, such as the Vampire FaceLift® and the Vampire Breast Lift®. PRP is a rejuvenating solution and can be used as a dermal filler by injecting it under the skin to fill out wrinkles.
Because the platelets act as a healing stimulator, this science is also used for hair regrowth. By injecting PRP into areas of the scalp where we wish to see more hair, we can potentially reactivate the hair follicles, even after years of dormancy.
