Platelet Rich Plasma
New advances in medicine have been developed to harness and concentrate platelets and growth factors, to be precisely introduced to an are or site in an injectable form. The implantation of this biological material from a small amount of a patient’s own blood effectively “supercharges” the body’s capacity for healing, rejuvenating, and tissue repair. Platelet Rich Plasma has been used in facial rejuvenation around the world since 2006. Areas of treatment include but are not limited to Cheeks and Mid-face, Wrinkling around the eyes, Smile Lines, Neck and Jawline, chest and more.
