In our blood, it contains the plasma, red cells, white cells and platelets. Platelets mainly play a role in clotting blood. Not only that, but the growth factors in platelets also promote healing in our body cell. The concentration of platelets can be 5 to 10 times greater (or richer) than usual growth factors carried in our blood.
Our doctors will draw the blood from the patients with a new and sterilised syringe and separate the platelets from other blood cells to increase the concentration of the platelets or growth factors. This process is known as centrifugation. Then the increased concentration of platelets is combined with the remaining blood.
How Does PRP Therapy Help?
Ageing of the skin is a multifactorial phenomenon. The ongoing intrinsic changes and the cumulative effects of chronic exposure to the elements, for example, UV radiation, causing the skin to lose its thickness and elasticity and thus develop wrinkles. There is now an increased interest in a wide range of non-ablative treatments for skin ageing. These treatments can rejuvenate skin with minimal downtime and complications. The demand for minimally invasive rejuvenation is increasing. Many modalities have been designed to stimulate collagen synthesis and rejuvenate the aged skin while preserving the integrity of the epidermis.
Platelet-Rich-Plasma (PRP) is one of the minimally invasive modality that becoming a trend in this new century. It is an autologous preparation of platelets in concentrated plasma from the same individual. PRP therapy involves the injection of the patient’s platelets and fibrin for the cosmetic treatment of wrinkles or scars on our skin.

How Does PRP Works?
Generally, platelets play a role in stopping the bleeding and repairing damaged blood vessels and cells in the body. With the advancement of medical research, it also contains growth factors that activate and rejuvenate our cells. Platelets secrete a variety of growth factors after being activated by aggregation enhancers. These factors, including VEGF, PDGF, IGF and TGF, are known to control cell division and cell differentiation. It helps to improve the production of protein by binding to specific cell surface receptors.
Since these growth factors are present in high concentration, it enhances the healing capability of cells, by stimulating collagen production. Unlike fillers that use various synthetic substances, PRP uses the patient’s natural biology to address skin defects and volume loss, triggering the creation of new cells and collagen formation.
How Does It Done?

It is spun down in a centrifuge for 6 minutes at a precalculated speed to retrieve the most viable fibrin and platelets. After centrifugation, the platelet and fibrin component of the blood is extracted and reinjected into the area of concern.
