|Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is an innovative treatment designed to naturally rejuvenate the skin and repair the signs of ageing. Using your body’s own blood plasma to stimulate tissue regeneration and repair through the stimulation of new collagen, treatments are ideal for targeting those difficult to reach areas such as the delicate under eye region, tired and dry skin, skin laxity and fine lines/wrinkles, and for boosting overall skin tone, texture and luminosity.|
Platelet Rich Plasma FAQs
What is PRP?
PRP (platelet rich plasma) is blood plasma which contains a high concentration of platelets, which can be used to help rejuvenate skin, either by injecting it directly or by using it in combination with microneedling. PRP helps accelerate the process of tissue regeneration and repair, containing the fundamental growth factors released by activated platelets to initiate new collagen production.
What is involved in a treatment?
Your practitioner will take blood, similar to when you have a blood test, and then this blood will be spun in a centrifuge to allow the plasma to rise to the top of the red blood cells. This plasma is then injected into the areas being treated. Topical anaesthetic may be applied to the area being treated.
Is there any downtime?
As with most injectable treatments you may experience bruising and swelling after your PRP treatment. You are unable to wear make-up for 24 hours and should refrain from strenuous exercise for 24 hours also.
What is the treatment effective for treating?
- Tired and dry skin
- Laxity of skin
- Dark circles
- Overall texture and tone improvement
When will I see results?
You may notice an immediate ‘plumping’ after the treatment but this is usually due to swelling. Most results take a few weeks as we are relying on the regenerative properties of the growth factors within the plasma. By four weeks, you should start to see an improvement in the treated area.
How many treatments will I need?
Most areas will require a second treatment at 2-3 months to achieve the best results. Results can then be maintained with yearly PRP treatments.
