What is PRP?
PRP is the isolation of Platelets from your blood. Platelets have growth factors and stem cells that are responsible for healing. Platelets have many growth factors that promote healing, skin growth, new blood vessels, and collagen production. There are many growth factors in platelets. The primary factors are PDGF (Platelet Derived Growth Factor), TGF-B, VEGF, FGF (Fibroblast Growth Factor), and EGF (Epithelial Growth Factor).
PRP for aesthetic purposes can be used in the regions of the body for small volume augmentation (face), hair transplants, facelifts, after ablative laser treatments (CO2 Fractional and Erbium), penile enhancement, and depressed scars.
