PRP is the latest buzzworthy beauty treatment – and it’s all over social media. The Kardashian’s love it, Angelina Jolie can’t stop talking about it and bloggers everywhere are singing its praises. So what’s the big deal?
PRP stands for Platelet Rich Plasma, and when it comes to anti-aging benefits, you can think of it as liquid gold. Like many aesthetic treatments, PRP was first used in the medical community where its benefits were initially found during wound healing and orthopedic research.
The treatment involves a technician drawing about 10mL of blood, centrifuging it to concentrate the plasma (the pale-yellow liquid component of blood that normally holds the blood cells in suspension) from the red blood cells themselves, and then the platelet rich portion of the plasma is collected and injected into the treatment area.
The PRP jumpstarts your body’s healing mechanisms to stimulate natural healing and recovery. Since this is your body’s own substance there is little chance for an allergic or sensitivity reaction.
PRP can be used in several ways, but one of our favorites is in combination with NeoGraft Hair Restoration surgery. PRP is injected into the scalp to help thicken hair and enhance the hair’s natural growth process. At Silk Touch Cosmetic Surgery & Medspa we soak all grafts in PRP during the NeoGraft treatment to further boost the healing process.
