PRP Treatments

Hi Raja, Thanks for your question. PRP (platelet rich plasma) treatments are different from thread lifts. The two procedures have different goals. Whereas thread lifts are temporary (about 6 months) procedures designed to lift skin and tissue, PRP improves the quality and texture of the skin for a long time. PRP involves drawing some of your own blood, spinning it down and extracting the part that contains growth factors and nutrients. Then we use a microneedling device to go over your skin and create thousands of little channels in your skin. We then put some of the PRP extract on your skin topically and inject the rest under the skin. The growth factors and nutrients make the skin more smooth and also add some volume. The procedure is very safe since we are using your own blood. Hope that helps!
