What is platelet rich plasma?
Your blood is made up of four main components: red blood cells, white blood cells, platelets, and plasma. Platelet Rich Plasma is a platelet concentrated component from your own blood that contains nutrient rich cells and protein growth factors.
How do we do it?
We draw blood with different supplies, spin it in a centrifuge, and use a syringe to take out the plasma
We have it as an add on to treatments like:
- Potenza RF Microneedling
- Hair Restoration
It can be used for lasers as well. It helps with the downtime and redness.
Our staff are trained phlebotomists that draw the blood. PRP is a safe and effective treatment to speed healing and create a better result from many procedures we offer at UPDERM.
Frequently Asked Questions:
What Are Platelets?
Platelets are tiny cells that circulate within our body and bind together when they recognize damaged blood vessels. Platelets are made in your bone marrow along with your white and red blood cells.
What Is Plasma?
Plasma is the largest component of your blood, making up about 55 percent of its overall content. The primary purpose of plasma is to transport nutrients, hormones,
and proteins to the parts of the body that need it.
How Is Platelet-Rich Plasma Prepared?
Platelet Rich Plasma is produced when a small amount of blood is drawn and placed into a sterile, disposable container and then, spun to separate the platelets from your blood sample, resulting in a platelet-rich plasma.
Is Platelet-Rich Plasma Safe?
Platelet Rich Plasma is safe because it comes from your own blood, therefore there is minimal risk for allergic or immune reaction. Platelet Rich Plasma preparation must be conducted by a trained medical professional. Consult your physician for more information.
