Platelet Rich Plasma PRP for Skin Rejuvenation
PRP for skin rejuvenation is a technique for facial rejuvenation and skin tightening. It has a long history of being used in facial rejuvenation, dentistry, orthopedic medicine, reconstructive surgery, and wound healing. Plasma is present in the blood in the form of water and protein. It helps the red and white blood cells to move from one place to another. Platelet plays a significant role in healing. It is different than dermal filler as the platelet rich plasma is derived from the patient’s own blood.
What is the process of extracting Platelets from Blood for PRP for skin rejuvenation?
Our blood has platelets in it, and extracting PRP from our blood is a three-step process.
Step 1: Drawing the patient’s blood: A small amount of blood is drawn from the patient (usually from arms) in a sterile tube.
Step 2: Placed in a centrifuge: It is then spun at a certain speed for a certain time, this results in the separation of red blood cells and plasma.
Step 3: The plasma now contains a lot of platelets; this product is then used for facial rejuvenation and hair loss treatment. PRP injections for facial rejuvenation are administered on the patient’s skin or the problem area.
