What are PRP Injections?

PRP, or platelet-rich plasma, is derived from the patient’s own blood using a multi-step process:

  • A small sample of blood is collected from the patient
  • The sample is then spun through a sterile centrifuge, separating it into its individual components
  • During this process, the plasma, or liquid portion of the blood, is infused with platelets, which contain beneficial growth factors, creating PRP
  • The PRP is extracted from the rest of the blood sample

How Does PRP Work?

Although PRP and Microneedling are effectively standalone treatments, they are often combined for optimal skin rejuvenation results.

The process involves a handheld tool with several tiny needles at the tip that is moved over the skin, gently penetrating the surface at a specific depth to trigger what is known as Collagen Induction Therapy. By stimulating fresh, new collagen production beneath the surface, skin can regain strength and structure. Microneedling also opens up the skin, allowing better penetration of skincare products and the topical application of PRP. Once the PRP is absorbed into the skin, the growth factors aid in the generation of new tissues and have multiple benefits for the skin, including:

  • Smoothing and tightening visible signs of aging
  • Reducing the appearance of skin imperfections
  • Restoring a more youthful by increasing circulation
