A small amount of blood is taken from your arm and then separated through a process of centrifugation into red blood cells, clear serum and platelets. After a few minutes, the plasma and concentrated platelets are injected into the face or the area of the body in need of rejuvenation.

Platelets release growth factors that help the body repair itself by stimulating cells to regenerate new tissue.
