Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy, also known as PRP Therapy, uses your own blood to encourage the production of new collagen. Our blood contains platelets, which work to heal damaged tissues including our skin and hair follicles. During a PRP Therapy, a small amount of blood is extracted from your arm and placed in a specially designed centrifuge. The blood is spun at such a rate that the red blood cells are separated from the platelets and plasma. The ‘platelet rich’ plasma is then injected back into the patient, helping to rejuvenate the problem areas. The ongoing production of collagen continues to brighten, rejuvenate and rehydrate the skin even after the treatment.
PRP enables the body to heal. Essentially it allows the body to heal faster and more efficiently. It stimulates DNA repair, heals scars and makes dry lacklustre skin look and feel younger. Not only is it an amazing anti-ageing treatment, but it also has wider uses within the medical profession, including treating hair loss and sports injuries.
Results are noticeable within 3-4 weeks and often only one treatment is required. It works especially well for the forehead, cheeks, neck, décolletage, hands, knees and elbows. It’s amazing at skin revitalisation, tackling scars (including acne scars) and stretch marks. It can be mixed with dermal fillers to treat lines, administered during the same appointment as muscle relaxing injections for a lifting effect and really tackle any skin related problems.
