How does it work?
PRP is a procedure that involves taking a sample of your blood and centrifuging (separating) the platelets and plasma from the red cells.
The platelets and plasma is then re-injected into the skin.

· Acne and acne scarring
· Wrinkles and fine lines (frown lines or crow’s feet)
· Loose skin
· Dark eyes
· Hair loss

PRP is used to promote new skin cells, stimulate collagen production, repair cell damage, and regenerate and remodel tissue growth.
