Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
Harnessing Your Body’s Plasma To Reduce The Signs Of Aging
The human body is a highly resilient system, able to heal itself in ways that can often seem incredible. However, sometimes our body needs help in certain places where it has reduced blood flow. This can include scars on the face or body, sun damaged skin around the eyes and loose skin/wrinkles around the mouth.
At Fiona Medical Aesthetics, we help the body using platelet-rich plasma (PRP), a technique that involves drawing a small amount of your blood and separating out the protein and growth-factor-rich plasma. This can be used in your body and on your skin for regenerative, anti-inflammatory and rejuvenating purposes.
What Is Platelet-rich Plasma And How Is It Processed?
Most of our blood is made up of liquid plasma but it also contains many rich components including red and white blood cells and platelets.
Platelets contain countless proteins called growth factors which are key to helping injuries heal.
The key to harnessing platelets in our blood for ‘good’, is to draw a blood sample and then process it using a centrifuge to separate the platelet-rich plasma from the other parts of the blood.
Once we have this concentrated ‘liquid gold’, it can be used for several forms of treatment. Most commonly we hear about it as part of treatment for high-level athletes who may be suffering from injuries (sprained knees, tendonitis, etc.). In our industry, we use PRP to care for the skin and to promote new hair growth.
