What is PRP?
A type of regenerative medicine that uses your own platelets and fibrins to rejuvenate the skin
  • Used by surgeons over the past 7-10years to speed up soft tissue healing from sports injuries as well as to treat burn victims and patients with severe ulcers.
  • It is also used as an adjunct to implant therapy in dentistry.
  • A fraction of blood (20-50cc) is drawn up from the individual patient into a syringe.
