Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) has gained popularity in facial plastic surgery because of its role in wound healing. PRP, having a higher concentration of platelets, allows for greater release of growth factors and biologically active proteins, which in turn activate the wound-healing cascade stimulating collagen production. One of the most popular uses for PRP is facial skin rejuvenation in the form of topical application during microneedling.
Platelet-rich plasma combines two elements: plasma, or the liquid portion of your blood, and platelets, or blood cells that play a key role in your body’s natural healing process. By using your own blood cells to amplify your body’s natural ability to heal, platelet-rich plasma can rejuvenate your skin from the inside out.

The clinical application of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) has been invented to restore natural beauty by starting the natural rejuvenation process of the skin and aiming to make it function as a younger one and to keep the skin youthful and maintain it. Besides that, it is also emerged to include hairs as a new injectable procedure to enable stimulating hair growth locally and topically; preventing its fall; improving hair shaft, hair stem, and caliber; increasing its shine, vitality, and pliability; and declining hair splitting and breakage.
