Platelet Rich Plasma Facial

Platelets are a part of the blood that allow your body to clot. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is produced by spinning blood in a centrifuge so that it separates. In addition to PRP, the process can produce other items such as platelet-poor plasma (PPP) and platelet lysate (PL). PRP can be used to treat conditions like knee osteoarthritis, sports injuries and hair loss.

Studies have indicated that PRP is or may be useful to treat:

- Tennis elbow (lateral epicondylitis).
- Knee osteoarthritis
- Sports injuries such as pulled muscles, joint sprains or ligament tears.
- Wounds.
- Hair loss.

As with any type of injection, there are small risks of bleeding, pain and infection. When the platelets are from the patient who will be using them, the product is not expected to create allergies or have risks of cross infection.

One of the main limitations with PRP products is that every preparation in every patient can be different. No two preparations are the same. Understanding the composition of these therapies required measuring numerous complex and different factors.
