PRP refers to platelet rich plasma. PRP is obtained by drawing a small amount of your blood, spinning it to isolate its platelets. It has become a very popular treatment.
Delivering PRP under the skin has been shown to:
PRP is packed with a high concentration of platelets, each of which releases more than 300 growth factors. Once in your skin, they rev up your stem cells and fibroblasts to stimulate collagen and elastic tissue production.
Delivering PRP under the skin via microneedling has definitely been shown to be effective, both for facial rejuvenation and hair stimulation. Except for hair stimulation, whether injecting PRP deeper into facial skin is as predictable is not clear, despite increasing popularity. No consensus has yet been achieved as of early 2019.
PRF – Some scientists feel that spinning the blood more slowly allows more white cells to be mixed with the platelets, enhancing the results. This is controversial as many other scientists feel that white cells are extremely pro-inflammatory and should therefore be avoided. No consensus has been achieved. We are sticking with PRP for the moment.
