PRP, or Platelet Rich Plasma, Injections are very popular as a rejuvenating, healing, aesthetic service wherein some of the patient's own plasma-rich blood (think getting blood drawn) is used to promote tissue repair. Want a natural procedure? This is it! We give PRP injections for the eye area, face, or scalp.
Platelets have been used to heal damaged tissue across multiple medical disciplines for such ailments as arthritis, tendonitis, and various other musculosketal issues. When applied with a concentration in aesthetics, PRP injections use the same principle of the healing properties of platelets. In this procedure blood is drawn and distilled so only the platelet rich portion remains and can be used alone (a.k.a, "Vampire Facelift"), or in tandem with other services, most popularly Microneedling.
