PRP has been used in medical procedures utilizing the body’s own blood to regenerate new cellular growth and assist with healing for years, but not until recently was it discovered to have cosmetic benefits as well. The human body has the natural capability to heal itself. Regeneration of the new tissue is accomplished by utilizing your natural production of stem cells. PRP introduces concentrated platelets rich in bioactive proteins, which release growth factors to stimulate cellular regeneration and accelerate tissue repair.
