Platelet Rich Plasma has been used in orthopaedic sports medicine for wound healing, surgical healing, dentistry and ophthalmology. The process involves collecting the patient’s own blood and retrieving platelet rich plasma protein, which contains a concentration of growth factors. These growth factor help to repair and regenerate the skin. This procedure has minimal risk of side effects and nil risk of rejection.
In the aesthetic world, Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy is best for:
- Skin rejuvenation (stand alone or in conjunction with laser and injectables), and
- Hair loss (possible use in combination with other treatment protocols).
