PRP is a component of blood that contains high-power proteins that help produce and generate cell growth and provide a means for circulation of other healthy components throughout the bloodstream. PRP is derived by separating plasma from the body’s own blood, and concentrating the amount of platelets in it.

The premise of PRP injection therapy is that a patient is injected with a concentration of platelets from a sample of their own blood to accelerate the healing process in tendons, joints and muscles. Due to the concentration of the tissue growth factors, healing is faster and more pronounced.

How does PRP work?

A vial of blood will be drawn from the patient and put in a centrifuge to separate the components and concentrate the platelets. The activated form of the platelets is then directly injected into the injured part of the body, or applied in a facial along with microneedling, leading to an increase in the production of reparative cells.

PRP procedure

Our aestheticians will obtain a sample of the patient’s blood, the amount of which varies depending on where PRP is required. The blood is then placed in a centrifuge to separate its various components and concentrate its platelets. This platelet rich plasma is then injected to treat stubbornly painful spots, or applied to the facial along with microneedling.

After treatment

After PRP therapy injection, avoid washing the injected area for 48 hours. You can freely use skin and hair products after 48 hours. The injected area may be sore for a couple of days.

Cost of PRP

The cost of PRP varies by location, provider and the area treated. The cost tends to average from $500 to $1,200 per area treated.
