PRP is a dense concentrate of your body’s own biologically active growth factors, peptides and plasma that are harvested in our laboratory from one simple blood sample taken from you. The resulting serum is applied to your skin in a concentrated fashion through either micro pores or deeper through direct targeted injection treatment for areas with deeper underlying skin damage. The biological factors in this concentrated serum are found in the body to stimulate the body’s own stem cells and aid in the repair of damaged tissues. PRP treatments aim to decrease inflammatory processes of the skin and initiate skin repair through cellular renewal.

Platelet rich plasma is one of the most powerful tools available because it provides natural and holistic reversal of skin damage while boosting healthy skin regeneration.
