How does PRP work:


Platelets are playing a significant role in stopping the bleeding from vessels and healing the wounds through the release of growth factors that work on restoring the col
lagen and generating new ones to repair the damaged area. In PRP treatment, we collect your own blood and place it in a high spin centrifuge to obtain the activated growth factors which are 7 to 10 times higher concentrations that we see in the common physiologic repair process. The activated factors have to be injected in areas of concerns within 15 to 30 minutes.

The PRP Procedure:


The blood will be collected in a sterile way and placed in a special machine to separate blood components. The autologous white cells which contain activated growth factors will be injected in the area of concerns within 15 to 30 min after the blood come out of the machine. Any delay will affect the quality of the sample and the desired outcomes. Since we are using your own blood then it is a safe treatment and imposes no risk of allergy and rejections that you may see with the other anti-aging tools. To maintain the desired results that have been achieved and boost it, the process and the injections should be repeated every 3-4 month from the first treatment for the first year then with wider intervals after that depending on your needs and satisfactory level.
