Blood contains many solid components like platelets, which are known for their importance in blood clotting. However, these also contain hundreds of proteins called growth factors which are essential in creating skin rejuvenation.
To develop the PRP, blood must be drawn from the client and the platelets separated from the other blood cells. Then their concentration is increased during a process called centrifugation, and this is then combined with the remaining blood. The resulting PRP has many more platelets than what is typically found in blood, and therefore more growth factors.
Once the PRP is formed, it is injected into the treatment site to help promote many skin benefits such as tighter, firmer, blemish-free skin. There is a very short recovery time for PRP, and no restrictions like you would expect with invasive surgery, which is what makes this such a popular and appealing treatment. The client might be slightly sore for a few days, but this discomfort is minimal and they can resume their daily routine immediately after the treatment.
