Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy is a revolutionary and popular treatment used for a number of purposes from combating hair loss to acting as a natural filler to reverse the signs of aging. Nenergy Boost provides this innovative holistic skin rejuvenation treatment for men and women at Nenergy Boost in Brentwood and West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and Marina Del Rey. PRP involves injecting concentrated growth factors from your own blood to prompt collagen production and skin regeneration, and volumize sunken areas, such as the dark circles under the eyes.

Platelet-rich plasma therapy is a treatment that was initially designed to speed up your body’s natural healing process. The many uses and benefits of this natural treatment method were soon discovered.
PRP is a form of regenerative medicine used in a number of medical fields. It works well for hair restoration and for treating sports injuries, arthritis, and more. PRP therapy has even been used during some surgeries to aid in tissue healing.
Your blood mainly consists of a liquid called plasma. It also contains small solid components: platelets, and red and white blood cells. The platelets play a key part in blood clotting, but they also have numerous growth factors that are especially beneficial in healing injuries and enhancing cell regeneration.
PRP is plasma that is rich in platelets, meaning it contains more platelets than what’s normally found in your blood. For platelet-rich plasma, a special process (centrifugation) concentrates the growth factors until they’re five to 10 times richer than usual, further enhancing the healing and regenerating effects.
In the world of cosmetics and anti-aging, PRP can be effectively used to fill in areas of lost facial volume. PRP also stimulates cell regeneration and collagen and elastin production for longer term, more youthful-looking results. This process is sometimes referred to as platelet-rich plasma filler (PRF).
When injected by a trained medical professional into specific areas, such as the circles or lines under the eyes or the jaw area, PRP can safely restore volume.
First, the team draws your blood and concentrates the platelets in a special centrifuge device. After the centrifugation process is complete, the Nenergy team carefully merges the increased concentration of platelets with the remaining blood and injects it into the target area.
Treatment with PRP holds promise and provides both cosmetic and functional benefits.
Unlike many other anti-aging and skin rejuvenation treatments, PRP doesn’t involve medications or surgery that can sometimes come with unwanted side effects and risks. PRP is also more affordable than some other treatment methods and cleaner than Botox.
Since PRP is a more natural treatment using your own blood, your body won’t reject it or become allergic to it, making it safe and successful. PRP is a quick in-office lunchtime procedure with no downtime.
