What Is Platelet Rich Plasma Treatment?
Have you ever given a thought to the fact that our own blood is highly beneficial for our cosmetic needs? Have you ever heard of the term ‘Vampire Facial’ and wondered ‘What is a vampire facelift?’ Although sounds scary, a vampire facial is a more common term for Platelet Rich Plasma Treatment or PRP.
Platelet Rich Plasma Treatment, or PRP, involves using the patient’s own blood in order to acquire the desired results. The blood which is taken from the patient is first purified and then platelet-rich plasma is extracted from it. This PRP is then injected into the problem areas of the patient like skin and hair to get flawless skin and healthy hair.
How does PRP treatment boost collagen production and improve skin quality?
The skin has a tendency to fall dull overtime. This can affect the overall appearance of the person as the skin is the most visible part, especially, the skin on the face. PRP for skin generally helps to boost collagen production which in turn improves the quality and the texture of the skin. This helps to restore glowing and radiant skin.
What Is Collagen?
Collagen is actually the element that accelerates the healing procedure. Higher collagen results in a firm, smooth toned skin. Hence, stimulating collagen through PRP is advantageous for the skin.
