PRP: Platelet-Rich Plasma
PRP is a nutrient rich, concentrated component of your own blood. Having been used for years in treating athletic injuries to aid in tendon & ligament tears and more recently in joint and other tissue injuries, it is not a surprise that the benefits would be found in our largest (and most visible) organ, the Skin !!
After drawing a little bit of your blood, we spin it down to concentrate then extract the PRP. Within this concentrated PRP are dozens of vital proteins, but more importantly there are about a dozen different Growth Factors that perform a variety of different actions from causing Collagen and Elastin to regrow, breaking down of scar tissue, reactivation failing and dormant hair follicles, and much more!! Basically, we allow those Growth Factors to do exactly what they're meant to do!
Note: At Skin Renaissance, only Julie and Suzanne perform PRP procedures 🙂
