Platelet-Rich Plasma is the concentration of platelets and growth factors found in the blood. PRP involves a process wherein a small amount of blood is drawn from the patient’s arm. The blood is then placed in a centrifuge which separates the red cells from the clear platelet-rich plasma. The clear PRP solution is then injected into the area to repair.
Dr Russo has developed a unique protocol that involves the use of a special micro needling delivering device to enhance the absorption of PRP and increase results. PRP is indicated for skin rejuvenation, acne scar, scar revision and hair restoration.
The healing process is quick and painless. Mild skin redness and swelling (like a sunburn) is expected but resolves within 12 hours. Skin care products to enhance the results from the PRP procedure are recommended in order to maximize the benefits of the treatment. Makeup can be applied the following day. Favorable clinical responses are often observed within 3-4 weeks after the treatment as the collagen begins to form.
