PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) is a component of your blood that contains growth factors. Growth Factors are chemical signals to your cells to make more collagen, elastin and even hair. It can be applied topically to the skin after microneedling and laser treatments. It can also be injected into the skin and scalp. It will make the skin appear more hydrated, less creepy and refreshed. It will also improve healing times after having a procedure.
