PRP - Platelet Rich PlasmaFacial, skin, and hair rejuvenation treatment through the power of stem cells
Rich Platelet Plasma Injection Therapy
For those who are seeking a more natural approach to anti-ageing procedures, PRP therapy is the ultimate regenerative treatment. The therapy uses your own cells so it is completely safe and natural. We have inside of us the power to heal and regenerate tissue in all areas of our body. Stem cells do this for us every day of our lives.
The non-surgical treatment uses your own blood platelets to stimulate new cell growth, helping to improve your complexion, skin texture and to restore lost facial volume. The healing properties of PRP can be used as a cosmetic treatment for the following on the face, neck and décolletage:
What Is PRP And How Does It Work?
Considered a ‘miracle drug’, Cosmetic Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) treatments use a mixture of your own blood which contains three to five times more platelets, growth factors, and active proteins for tissue and injury healing.
When PRP is placed back into the skin by injection or micro-needling it stimulates the production of collagen and elastin which help slow and reverse the signs of aging. Within a few weeks of treatment, you will notice an overall improvement in skin hydration, texture and tone.
New collagen and blood vessels begin to grow after three to six weeks, and reduction of fine lines and wrinkles and volume correction happens over the next three to six months. The production of new collagen is an essential element in repairing wrinkled, blemished and regenerating sun-damaged skin.
The Treatment Process
Depending on how many areas you want treated, a volume of blood will be taken. This is usually between 10 to 30 ml. Your blood is then placed in a centifuge which enables the separation of the blood cells from your plasma and platelets. Your blood is essentially made up of four components; red blood cells, white blood cells, the plasma and the platelets. Once your cells have separated, the rich platelets are extracted and re-injected into the skin to stimulate collagen and new skin cells.
Cosmetic PRP is a simple and safe procedure. The most common side effects are mild swelling and bruising that may last three to seven days. Because the PRP is extracted from your own blood, there is no risk of disease transmission, allergic or immune reaction.
How Long Do Results From Plasma Rich Injections Last?
Results become visible within 3 weeks, and will gradually improve over the next 12 – 18 months. For optimal results we recommend 3-6 treatments every 2-3 weeks.
