Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is a procedure that involves taking a blood sample, concentrating the platelets from that sample and re-injecting the platelets back into the body to assist healing and regenerate tissue. This occurs because the platelets secrete a concentrated mix of Growth Factors. These Growth Factors stimulate repair cells. Numerous studies have proven the worth of PRP in wound healing and in assisting healing of bone grafts and muscle and tendon injuries. In fact, PRP is banned in drug-tested sport as a performing enhancing drug. Now we can treat cosmetic issues. It can be used anywhere, but is especially good for rejuvenation of crinkling skin around the eyes, jaw line, lower-face; and around the lips, cheeks, mid-face volume loss, chest and decolletage. We are also seeing great results for stretch-marks, acne scarring, neck crinkling, regrowth of areas of hair loss and back of hands. PRP is not for everyone. Heavy smokers and heavy alcohol users will get poor results. It cannot be used by those with platelet or clotting disorders, or those on anticoagulant and antiplatelet medication or anti-inflammatory medication such as Nurofen or Voltaren.
