Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is a non-surgical procedure for facial and skin rejuvenation. PRP treatment uses your own blood growth factors to simulate new cell growth and collagen to help improve natural skin texture and colour as well as restore lost facial volume.
This treatment takes your blood and spins it in a centrifuge, which is a device used to separate fluids based on density, to isolate your plasma growth factors. Once that is completed, it is then re-injected into the skin or infused with microneedling. Find out more about microneedling treatment and what it involves. [link to the microneedling page]
PRP rejuvenates the skin by stimulating collagen and elastin production, thickening and tightening the skin. It is very effective in areas where other treatments can’t be used, such as the delicate area under the eye, where other rejuvenation treatments such as lasers are not suitable. PRP improves overall skin texture and tone, giving a youthful look, as well as being used as a treatment for some skin conditions including acne and rosacea.
As we are using your body’s own powerful regenerating fluids there are no risks of allergy or rejection of the treatment.
When the treatment is applied it will take up to three weeks to see results with ongoing improvements over the next few months. Results are long lasting with patients typically seeing results for 12-18 months following three treatment sessions.
PRP may be also beneficial in other areas such as hair loss and post-traumatic scars. It is also important not to delay the start of treatment for optimum results.
