What is PRP or Platelet Rich Plasma (a Natural “Face Lift”)?


PRP is a natural treatment that helps decrease signs of aging. 

When activated, platelets release growth factors that speed up tissue healing activating cells rejuvenating skin restoring that fresh glow. PRP is collected from your blood eliminating any risk of rejection, allergic reactions, and infection. Growth factors stimulate resident stem cells to promote regeneration for anti-aging. It is a natural approach to volumizing skin and correcting fine lines providing a natural “face lift”. 

Conditions Treated with PRP include fine lines and wrinkles, scars (including acne scars), stretch marks, slow healing wounds, and thinning hair and hair loss (alopecia). For best results, 2-3 treatments are needed with 2-4 months between treatments. PRP creates a smooth, tighter, glowing skin improving texture and tone within 3-4 weeks.
