Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a substance derived from a sample of your own blood, drawn in the office prior to your treatment at Destinations Medical Spa Los Angeles. PRP contains just the plasma from your blood, which is the liquid base, and platelets, which initiate the healing process when you sustain an injury. It contains no red or white blood cells.
Once the team draws a blood sample from your vein, they place it in a centrifuge. A centrifuge rapidly spins the blood sample in a closed container, which forces the different cell types to separate into clear-cut layers. The team extracts the platelet layer to prepare it for your PRP treatment.
When injected or needled into your skin, the platelets in PRP release growth factors to stimulate tissue healing and renewal. It can serve several key purposes in aesthetic medicine.
