What is PRP & How does it work?
PRP, the acronym for “Platelet-Rich Plasma”, is a form of treatment that has been around for decades, mainly used in wound and soft tissue healing by physicians. This is because PRP has been found to have regenerative growth properties, and when used on the skin, is able to improve skin texture by minimizing pores, fine wrinkles, acne scars by encouraging skin rejuvenation.
The concentrated blood plasma is obtained by simply drawing 1 - 2 vials of the patient’s own blood and running it in a centrifuge. The centrifuge spins the vial of blood to isolate the plasma and other healing factors, producing the final platelet-rich solution which is then simply reinjected into the patient’s face.
As PRP works to improve on the skin’s healing, it is also commonly combined with other popular treatments such as fat grafting, collagen injections, filler and Botox injections to enhance the final results.
What is the process of PRP like?
First, blood is drawn from the arm. As the blood is being processed in the centrifuge, topical anesthesia (numbing cream) will be applied to the face. After 15 – 20 minutes, the numbing effect would have taken place, and the doctor will re-inject the PRP all over the face and the neck. The actual treatment process often doesn’t take more than 20 minutes.

What are the side effects and post-care treatment?
There are no side effects, however some people may experience redness, slight bruising and puffiness for a day or two, due to the use of needles. After PRP treatment, the skin is more tender and it is recommended to stay out of the sun and refrain from going the sauna, hot baths right after the treatment.
