PRP therapy involves the separation of healing platelets from an individual's blood plasma, the platelets are then re-injected into the body. The treatment is meant to enhance healing and this skin rejuvenating therapy is also known as a Vampire Facial. PRP therapy was initially developed and used for musculoskeletal injury surgeries, both old and new.
Platelets, as a blood component, are the cells responsible for clotting. They stimulate a faster healing of open wounds by producing enzymes that help in tissue generation for repairing the damaged area. The method is the same process required for Vampire Facial. The platelet blood is administered onto the patient's face. The injections are made on specified parts to aid in skin renewal and healing by the production of collagen and skin cells. These factors help the skin to become more plump, firmer and youthful in appearance.
With age, the skin does not get an adequate amount of moisture. Collagen and elastin levels drop causing dynamic wrinkles which, in time, turn into static wrinkles. Eventually the skin starts to sag because it can no longer bounce back

Genetics-affect all layers of the skin and contribute to thinning, dryness, and loss of elasticity of the skin during the aging process.
