How it works

When you experience a soft tissue injury the body’s first response is to deliver platelet cells to the affected area. These cells which are found in blood are jam packed with growth and healing factors which signal the repair process and enlist the critical assistance of stem cells. By adding the Platelet Rich Plasma that is key in PRP therapy the body’s natural healing process is intensified thanks to the higher concentration of platelets to the injured area. The enhanced Plasma encourages the body’s healing process for long-term relief of chronic pain.

Before the PRP Injections treatment begins the aesthetician will carefully withdraw a small amount of blood from you. The blood is placed in a special centrifuge that spins at a very high speed, from there the platelets are separated from the other components. Using the highly concentrated PRP enriched blood the aesthetician then carefully re-injects the blood into the treatment zone. Because your own blood is used, there is no risk of catching a communicable disease or transmissible infection.
