Platelet rich plasma PRP has been used safely for many years for the treatment of various ailments, in particular, to stimulate the repair of tendons. In recent years it is being used to help skin to heal better – “rejuvenation”. This makes it a useful adjunct to other anti-aging therapies like microneedling (Dermaroller) and dermal fillers.
Several brands of this treatment process have become popular, more so with the recent endorsement by celebrities. These brand names are based upon the different techniques and “systems” that are used to extract the Platelet Rich Plasma.
