Platelet Rich Plasma is made from a small sample of your own blood through a process that concentrates the platelets found in the blood sample. These platelets contain huge reservoirs of growth factors—the natural components of your body that are responsible for stimulating tissue generation and repair.
Clinical data has shown that growth factors may enhance and accelerate your body’s normal healing process. The many beneficial primary and secondary effects of platelet derived growth factors include:
-Enhanced stem cell recruitment
-Enhanced tissue regeneration
-Enhanced collagen production
-Stimulation of hair follicles and enhanced hair re-growth
-Enhanced new blood vessel formation
-Reduced inflammation and pain at injury site
-Enhanced viability of fat grafts (preliminary studies)
-Accelerated healing times
At HKPS and MedSpa, we offer PRP therapy with a number of our treatments, including fat grafting, facial surgery, hair restoration and skin rejuvenation (Dermapen Skin Therapy System, Infini radiofrequency microneedling, ablative laser skin resurfacing).
