What is Plasma and Platelets?

Platelets are small cell fragments in your bloodstream made in our bone marrow, which makes the clotting process possible to stop bleeding when you have an injury or cut.

Plasma is a light yellow liquid when it has been separated from the rest of the blood, which is mainly made of water and proteins. Platelets are small cell fragments in your bloodstream made in our bone marrow, which makes the clotting process possible to stop bleeding when you have an injury or cut.


These growth factors that are present in the alpha granules of platelets play a vital part in new tissue regeneration and collagen production. There are many types of growth factors present in platelets but the three key ones used in skin and hair rejuvenation are:


EGF (Epidermal growth factor) – it helps to stimulate new cell growth, new collagen and elastin fibres to improve the skin texture and elasticity. It plays a vital role in tissue repair


VEGF (Vascular endothelial growth factor) – This is a signalling protein which helps growth of new blood vessels and it also helps to restore blood supply to cells and tissues.


PDGF (Platelet derived growth factor) – This helps with healing, repair and stimulates growth of its target cells and proliferation

How Does Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Work On The Face?

When PRP is injected into the damaged area it causes a mild inflammation that triggers the healing cascade.


As the platelets are injected into the treatment area, they release a number of enzymes to promote healing and tissue responses, including delivering stem cells and growth factors to repair the damaged area. As a result new collagen begins to develop. As the collagen matures it begins to shrink causing the tightening and strengthening of the damaged area.


When treating injured or sun and time damaged tissue, they can induce a remodelling of the tissue to a healthier and younger state.


PRP therapy is relatively quick process and requires mimimal downtime.
