What is Actually Happening
Prior to the injection, you will have blood drawn. Then, the blood will be placed in a centrifuge where it is spun. The spinning separates the blood into three groups: Platelet Poor Layer, The Buffy Coat (this contains the white blood cells and good platelets, which will be used in the injection), and the Red Blood Cells. Then, once the separation is completed, the plasma collected will be injected into the injured area of the skin.
Once the platelet rich plasma is injected, it will release growth factors: Platelet Derived Growth Factor [PDGF], Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor [VEGF], Epidermal Growth Factor ]EGF], Keratinocyte Growth Factor [KGF] and Transforming Growth Factor [TGF]. These elements will then work to rejuvenate the skin.
Once the process is complete, the skin is revitalized and restored to a natural, younger appearance. The whole process is natural, using your body’s own healing methods, and you should experience minimal side effects or complications. Note: Individual results may vary.
