What is PRP?
PRP or Platelet Rich Plasma therapy is a Bio-Facial developed to harness the growth factors that are naturally present in the platelet component of blood. These growth factors stimulate collagen growth and improve the blood supply to the skin which results in a better appearance of the skin and helps improve the texture and the tone.

Blood is taken from the patient and the platelets are separated from other blood components in a centrifuge. Using the Meso-gun so that the procedure is painless, the platelet rich plasma is re-injected into the patient’s skin. In so doing, the platelets are stimulated to release growth factors which set off a chain reaction which results in the rejuvenation of the skin over the next 3 to 6 weeks. Since only the patient’s own blood is used, there is no risk of rejection or associated immune complications. The whole Bio-Facial takes about 30 – 40 mins.
