Our blood has several different cells with different functions. Among these cells, is a specialized cell called platelet. These cells are useful in blood clotting and wound healing after an injury as they contain various growth factors. Many such growth factors when injected into the skin or scalp can help rejuvenate and restore the health of the skin cells. PRP is extensively used in orthopedics and dentistry to help bone healing. The PRP is made by taking a small quantity of blood from the patient’s vein, as if in a blood test. The blood is collected in a sterile manner and placed in a centrifuge to help separate the platelets from other cells. The platelets being the smallest cells of the blood, get separated into the fluid part of the blood called plasma. This platelet-containing plasma is then used as PRP for treatment. 

The platelet of PRP is derived from your own blood, and no additional products are added to it. The effectiveness of the product is its biological and natural activity. This makes PRP a natural and safe alternative to wrinkle filler injections.

Platelets are one of the natural sources of growth factors. Its use has been proven in orthopedic medicine where it has been used extensively during surgery for bones. The use of PRP in hair made waves when the first report of PRP for the treatment of Male Pattern Hair Loss was known. Since then, there have been many studies which shows that PRP makes a significant change in the metabolism of the skin and hair and can be used effectively in various skin conditions like hair loss, both in men and women, non-surgical face lifting, dark circles under the eye, stretch marks, non-healing skin ulcers and so on. However, the results of the PRP and the number of sessions needed for improvement depends on the severity of the skin condition at the time of starting the treatment.
