Build collagen with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections.

It’s an injectable made from your blood! PRP speeds healing and has been used for years to help athletes recover from injuries and to repair tendons and joints.

For the face, PRP can be used in addition to fillers to stimulate collagen production to improve the tone and texture of the skin.

A small amount of your blood is drawn and then with a centrifuge, the platelet rich plasma is extracted.

For optimum results, at least three treatments are recommended.
