Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)

Platelet Rich Plasma Skin Therapy 

PRP Skin Rejuvenation
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) is “harvested” from your own blood. This is done by collecting a small volume of your blood (much like having a blood test) and spinning it down to separate the red blood cells from the platelet cells. This resulting PRP is introduced back under the skin by a series of tiny injections. Treatment with PRP is not new to the world; it has been recognized for its accelerated wound-healing properties in surgery and sports injuries for some time.
Platelets are the “sticky glue” that stop bleeding when you hurt yourself. Their other job is to promote wound healing and repair by attracting growth cells.
PRP treatment produces a rejuvenating and tightening effect on your skin, giving it a healthy, youthful glow.

It is used in the following areas:

  • Full-face rejuvenation
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Textural improvement
  • Dull dry skin
  • Acne scarring
  • Eye area wrinkles (both upper and lower eyelids), Dark circle under eyes
  • Décolletage
  • Aging skin or loss of facial volume, causing deep folds or wrinkles
  • Hair-growth stimulation (in those with thinning hair)
  • Back of hands and arms
  • Other body areas

The process takes around an hour. The skin area(s) to be treated are numbed with a topical anaesthetic cream. You can expect to have some redness, swelling and bruising, subsiding quickly over the following 4-7 days. The initial treatment for PRP is one treatment a month for 3 to 4 months, then repeat treatments either 6-monthly or 12-monthly, depending on your skin and results. As PRP is made up of your own blood products there is no risk of allergy, rejection or serious long-term side effects.

PRP is contraindicated if you smoke, have cancer, a poor diet or lifestyle, have chronic disease, or a poor platelet count.

How long do results last?
Treatment results vary, but once tissue has been regenerated and remodeled, that benefit may be permanent. However, as we continue to age, the problem areas eventually reappear.  It is thought that this occurs over 9-18 months after a single treatment (although everyone is different).  Touch-up treatments will maintain the results.
