Platelet Rich Plasma Treatments (PRP)

Platelet Rich Plasma Treatments (PRP)

Using your own platelets to stimulate new cell growth, restore volume and improve skin texture and complexion, PRP is a highly sought after natural procedure that comes with no risk of allergy or rejection.

A level of blood is taken for the treatment and is then put in a centrifuge to separate your blood cells from your plasma and platelets. The platelet rich plasma is then injected into your skin to encourage the growth of collagen and new skin cells. PRP treatments can also be done on the scalp to encourage the growth of new hair.

Best results are achieved after three consecutive monthly PRP treatments with results lasting up to 9 – 12 months.

  • Face (including fine lines and dark circles under eye)
  • Neck
  • Décolletage
  • Back of hands
  • Scalp (hair loss)
  • Scars
  • Stretch marks
A level of your blood is taken and placed in a centrifuge. The centrifuge process separates the red/white blood cells from the plasma, and the ‘liquid gold’ platelet rich plasma is removed. A five point crystal injector or a series of fine needles are used to inject the platelet rich plasma into the deep dermal layers of your skin where you would like to encourage the growth of collagen and new skin cells. PRP treatments using the crystal injector can also be done on the scalp to encourage the growth of new hair.
The growth factors in the plasma initiate a local stem cell response, causing your soft tissue to undergo an accelerated healing and regeneration process. The introduction of maximum growth factors into targeted areas:
  • Improves skin quality, texture, and elasticity
  • Reduces shallow wrinkles and lines
  • Reduces dark under-eye circles
  • Minimises appearance of scars
  • Minimises the visible signs of aged and sun damaged skin
  • Promotes more even skin tone & texture
  • Accelerates hair growth
A minimum of 3 sessions, 4-6 weeks apart are recommended. Following this, just one treatment once a year is recommended to maintain your results.
It is important to note that PRP cannot provide the immediate plumping short term effect of fillers or muscle relaxants. However, PRP will hopefully provide patients with a more youthful overall complexion that has the longer term benefit of improved skin health. Immediately after the procedure, the injected area will feel tighter, and lines/wrinkles will appear minimised. This degree of tightening will not last, and will ease after 4 days. The PRP will continue to work under the skin to generate new cells and improve the subsurface layers of the skin. This is not an immediate process and the more pronounced effects can be seen 6 weeks after the procedure with improvements potentially lasting up to 1-2 years.
PRP skin rejuvenation is suitable for all skin types, ages & colour. It is always best to discuss the use of any medical therapy with your trained medical professional prior to treatment.

Pain is extremely subjective and everyone has different thresholds, however, a topical numbing agent is applied beforehand to reduce any discomfort.
