PRP (PLATELET RICH PLASMA)
Platelet Rich Plasma Skin Rejuvenation Therapy (PRP)
‘Skin Rejuvenation using your own plasma’ PRP therapy has been used in many medical specialties over 30 years. These include cardiac surgery, wounds care, sports medicine, neurosurgery, general surgery, orthopaedics, dentistry and cosmetics. The end result is an appearance that looks significantly younger or quicker healing of wounds and scars. Platelet rich plasma (PRP) is obtained from your blood; this contains platelets which work in the body to repair damage by clogging up cuts and tears. Platelets also have growth factors on the surface which stimulate collagen production when injected into the skin.
PRP is injected into the skin to stimulate new collagen production and to re-energise your cells into rejuvenating themselves. It can be used as an anti-ageing treatment. It can be combined with Derma-roller or mixed with Dermal fillers, vitamins and anti-oxidants for a more superior result. It can be used everywhere on the body- hair loss, face, neck, décolleté, knees, elbows, stretch marks, wounds and scars.
Improvement of skin texture and tone are noticeable within 3 weeks. Full collagen regeneration takes up to 3 months. Mild swelling may be seen immediately. Over the days and weeks, the platelets will release growth factors and pre stem cells which will assist in more collagen growth.*
Responses to treatment vary but most conditions will require 1-3 sessions usually 4-6 weeks apart. The results can last up to 18 months. There is no limit to the number of treatments you can have for skin rejuvenation and maintaining youth but touch up treatments will maintain the results.
Scars and wounds can be fully treated after 1-3 sessions.*
