PRP Injections in Melbourne
As you age, your skin changes. It becomes thinner, loses fat, and no longer looks as plump and smooth as it once did. Collagen and elastin are naturally occurring substances in your skin that help provide fullness and elasticity. These are lost over time and wrinkles form. The good news is that you can do something about it.
Collagen is activated with the application of growth factors called Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP), drawn from your own blood. These cells are placed in problem areas of the face. PRP promotes collagen growth and long-term skin rejuvenation.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) injections in Melbourne create a vibrant, fresh and youthful skin and reduce fine lines and wrinkles; due to the new collagen formation.
