The revolutionary treatment is based on the use of Platelet-rich plasma technology which renews and replenishes skin to delay the onset of ageing in younger skin and smooth’s wrinkles producing healthier, more natural complexion in older skin. This works by using injections of one’s own blood to turn back the years, using small concentrations of blood plasma obtained by centrifuging the client’s own red blood cell.
