PRP contains concentrated platelets which contain a number of growth factors. These growth factors are useful for the skin rejuvenation and renewal. In addition, the microtrauma induced during PRP application stimulate new collagen production.
What is the process of PRP preparation?
First, blood is collected into a test tube. This test tube is then put into a centrifuge machine at a specific speed and for specific time. This results in separation of platelets from other components of the blood. The platelet rich plasma is then taken out. This platelet rich plasma is then applied to your skin (alone or in combination of microneedling).

The results improve with every session, which are usually repeated after 3 to 4 weeks. The best results are seen usually after 3 months when the collagen building process is at its peak.
How many sessions of PRP are required?
