This video outlines the cosmetic applications of PRP therapy, as an alternative to invasive cosmetic surgery. The platelet rich plasma that is separated from one’s own blood stimulates the repair and regeneration of tissue when injected into the skin by releasing growth factors that assist in the body’s process of growth and self-healing. Cells in the skin called dermal fibroblasts and adipocytes, or fat cells, are affected by PRP to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and promote the regeneration of tissues that create a more youthful look in the face
This video outlines the importance of collagen in the skin. Collagen holds the skin together, and it is necessary to have a lot, and the right type, of collagen in the skin for it to have a young, healthy look. Collagen can be damaged by the sun, smoking, and many factors that can lead to a poor texture, wrinkles and other imperfections, exacerbating the normal degradation that comes with ageing. PRP can be used to promote collagen production and rejuvenate the skin, by utilizing growth factors to enhance the proliferation of cells that produce collagen.
