PRP Plasma rich in Platelets
What is it about?
Plasma rich in Platelets is an autologue, non toxic, non allergenic, obtained from centrifugal process of the patients blood, which is directly linked with the release of the growth factors of the own platelet. These growth factors are recuperated and injected directly into the face areas, neck, neckline, hands and all the parts the patient requires it; where there is slacker and redness. These growth factors are applied to the dermis of the skin to stimulate the fibroblasts directly to produce new collagen and elastin, promoting the formation of new tissue, which will produce more smoothness, luminosity, and elasticity on the treated area. The PRP is a preparation made with the patient’s blood, avoiding in any way, the risk of infection of transmitted diseases, allergic reactions and because of its rich composition of hemostatic factors, it avoids the formation of hematomas.
