What is PRP?

PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) is an advanced treatment technology that utilizes the growth factors present in your own blood in order to regenerate your skin. Platelet Rich Plasma is a natural occurring component of your own blood. PRP encourages skin rejuvenation by stimulating the growth of your own collagen and improving blood supply to the tissue, leading to healthier, younger looking skin. This treatment helps both the tone and texture of skin, while easing the appearance of photo damaged and aging skin.

What is Cellular Matrix?

Cellular Matrix is a hyaluronic acid that can be combined with PRP to enhance the above described results. Hyaluronic acid production and retention slows down significantly as we age. It is responsible for hydrating and plumping our skin but also for providing the correct environment for certain cells like collagen producing cells to flourish. When added to PRP it gives added benefits of hydration to the treatment but also allows the PRP to be exposed to the tissues for longer so that the collagen stimulation is amplified.
