The treatment starts with applying topical anesthesia to keep the patient comfortable during the treatment. Then, the patient’s blood is drawn and placed in a centrifuge to separate the plasma from the rest of the blood.

The result is an increase in collagen and growth factors, creating more youthful, plumper, and firmer-looking skin.
