You’ve probably heard of “PRP” in advertisements for cosmetic treatments – but what exactly does it mean? And what are the benefits of adding PRP to a treatment?
Let’s take a look!
What is PRP?
PRP stands for “platelet-rich plasma.” Your blood is full of platelets, which are essential building blocks for regenerating cells and kick-starting sluggish cellular turnover. Platelets can be removed from the blood and added to a special growth-activating serum; this is the PRP that is used during cosmetic procedures. The process for removing platelets is pretty straightforward; patients can expect to have only a few teaspoons of blood removed from the upper arm. After the removal, the platelets will be extracted from the blood and added to the serum.
PRP is an excellent solution to add to any treatment, particularly those which are designed to boost cellular turnover and fade signs of aging.

What are the Benefits of Adding it to a Treatment?
Now that you know what PRP stands for, take a look at some of the great benefits of adding it to a treatment:
- It can help speed up the results of your procedure.
- It can heighten the rejuvenating glow you’ll experience after treatment.
- It increases the likelihood that you’ll see significant improvement in the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
- It’s ideal to add to treatment if you want to fade the appearance of hyperpigmentation, like age spots and sun spots.
PRP helps take any treatment to the next level. It’s a popular addition to treatments like microneedling, as the PRP solution can be injected directly into the subdermal level.
