Platelet Rich Plasma

This regenerative injectable or topical treatment uses your own platelet-rich plasma (the component of the blood that contains growth factors) to stimulate collagen and elastin production. 

PRP plays a critical role in tissue repair and regeneration helping revitalize the skin.

We use the Clarion World PRP System.  A gel free collection system.
