What the heck is PRP?
PRP is platelet rich plasma. Plasma is the liquid portion of your blood. Platelets are one of the cells in your blood that help with clotting, but they also aid in tissue and blood vessel repair. To get platelet rich plasma we take a sample of your blood and spin it in a centrifuge. This allows us to separate out the good stuff (platelets and plasma). We can then draw up that portion of the sample and use it in some amazing ways!
PRP is still relatively new in the aesthetics world. It has been used for a long time in Orthopedics and Pain Management for arthritis and joint pain. Recent studies have shown very promising aesthetic results when PRP is used for hair loss, dark under eye circles, wrinkles, skin texture issues, and more!
It can be used in combination with microneedling to enhance the effects of the procedure. This is called a “Vampire Facial”. PRP has gained popularity with many women’s (and men’s) health providers due to its ability to increase blood flow, and even assist with issues like urinary incontinence. Heard of the O-shot?
