What Is PRP?

Published on July 27, 2018

There are some treatments out there that may seem strange but can actually provide some amazing benefits. PRP treatments involve using blood to rejuvenate the skin. While that may seem odd, the results it provides cannot be denied.

PRP is not blood, but it is made from blood. PRP stands for platelet-rich plasma, which is a substance that comes from placing blood in a centrifuge to separate the solids and liquids in the blood. The liquid component of the blood is the plasma, which contains essential proteins and growth factors that are very beneficial for your skin.

At Dr. Marcos Cosmetic Surgery, we offer Microneedling PRP treatments and a Vampire Facial using PRP. If you want to experience the benefits of PRP, contact our office today to schedule a consultation.
