Principles of treatment
- PRP is a technique involving injection of autologous plasma (taken from the patient’s own blood), which is rich in platelets and growth factors, that stimulate skin and stem cells.
- Platelet-rich plasma accelerates the healing process by stimulating the production of collagen, and the revascularization and repair of tissue
- It induces some progressive improvement to skin vitality.
- First, a sample of blood is taken. That blood is immediately centrifuged in order to extract from it a concentration of platelets
