Plasma is the liquid portion of whole blood. It is composed largely of water and proteins, and it provides a medium for red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets to circulate through the body. Platelets, also known as thrombocytes, are blood cells that are necessary for growth healing functions. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy uses injections of a concentration of a patient’s own platelets to accelerate the healing of injured tendons, ligaments, muscles and joints. This same application has become widely used in skincare. PRP therapy, when applied topically or through superficial injections to the face can benefit the skin in many ways. In fact, The American Academy of Dermatology has found that PRP can reduce wrinkles, plump up sagging skin, get rid of deep creases, improve one’s complexion, and diminish acne scars.
