Many significant innovations for rejuvenating skin has been the outcome of more and more people seeking out non-invasive procedures. One of the latest techniques involves PRP or platelet-rich-plasma as soft tissue filler. The science behind this started from wound repair studies indicating PRP is rich in growth factors that activate and rejuvenates cells in the body.
