WHAT IS PRP?
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is an increased concentration of autologous platelets suspended in a small amount of plasma after centrifugation and used for injection into a wound or a particular skin condition (ie acne scarring or deep lines and wrinkles).
Over the technical info? Basically, PRP has gained its reputation as liquid gold with research backing to show improvement in fine lines and wrinkles, hair loss, texture and scarring when topically placed and/or injected underneath the skin.
IS THIS WHAT THE KARDASHIANS DO?
Perhaps. And although the Kardashians are fabulous, we picked up this treatment based off the science backing it. PRP has been used in the OR settings an in athletes to speed up healing.
When administered properly, PRP can yield buttery soft skin, brighter under eyes and softened scarring.
