What Is Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) and How Can the Therapy Benefit Me?

Since the PRP is derived from your own blood. there is virtually no risk of allergic reactions or rejection. At Advanced Plastic Surgery we’re able to produce a high concentration of biological nutrient-rich cells and create auto logo us (where the donor and recipient are the same person) platelet-rich plasma with a simple, quick process.
