Revitalize Your Appearance with PRP
Though the lightning-fast changes to technology in our industry have not yet been successful at producing the fountain of youth, we have been able to harness the body’s own healing properties to get some truly incredible results.
At Nashville Skin Company, we are proud to offer our patients a range of PRP therapy in Nashville and beyond. These treatments can be used to address a wide variety of problems with minimal downtime.
Our team provides several options for PRP therapy, including:
The Science of Platelet-Rich Plasma
To fully understand PRP therapy, it is important to first understand the basics of how the body heals itself.
When an otherwise healthy body sustains an injury such as a cut, blood is rushed to the site and the platelets in the blood begin to stick together around the damaged skin or tissue. These platelets contain a high concentration of growth factors that are released to repair the damage as the platelets break down.
The body is designed to repair until the damaged area is functional — not until it is back to its previous condition. Once the damage is healed enough to resume normal operation, the body will stop sending those crucial proteins and growth factors to the site.
However, these healing factors remain present in your blood at all times. PRP therapy works by extracting the platelet-rich plasma from a patient’s blood and introducing it to a treatment area where healing may have slowed down, just as the body might have done naturally.
The PRP activates the healing process, encouraging cell turnover beyond simply “functional,” resulting in:
- Increased collagen production
- Brighter, more even skin tone
- Minimized appearance of scars, stretch marks, fine lines, and wrinkles

PRP is used across disciplines in the medical field. It has been used to help heal injuries in areas with comparatively limited blood flow, can help minimize the appearance of scarring following major surgery, and can even help improve the effectiveness and minimize recovery time for other med spa treatments.
