So how is this “liquid gold” (PRP) used in the beauty business?
It would be great if you could just put some of your own blood were you want the collagen production, right? Well, no, its not that easy, but almost.. Here is the process.
To get the PRP, first blood must be drawn from a patient. Then the platelets are separated from other blood cells and their concentration is increased during a process called centrifugation, basically spinning the blood.
Then, depending on what concerns you as a client has, the PRP can be utilized in various ways. The platelet solution can be injected back into your face with a thin needle in conjunction with or without facial filler to increase volume. The PRP can be used as a topical addition to a micro needling pen treatment or a laser resurfacing procedure like Fractional CO2.
