HOW DOES IT WORK?
Platelet-rich plasma, or PRP, therapy is fast gaining in popularity in the cosmetic medicine world. It’s helpful to step back and take a look at the science to understand how PRP works.
Your blood is made up of three components — white cells, red cells, and platelets — all of which are contained in your plasma. The main function of your platelets is to clot your blood when necessary. Your platelets also contain hundreds of proteins that act as growth factors, which aid in healing.
During a PRP treatment, your blood is removed, and your platelets are isolated using a centrifuge. The specialists at the Victory MedSpa take this concentrate and add it back into your plasma, creating plasma that has 5-10 times the amount of platelets as found in normal plasma. They inject this concentrate back into the areas you want to treat.
