PRP Therapy (Platelet Rich Plasma)
PRP Therapy (Platelet Rich Plasma), a natural treatment administered by one of our Doctor’s injecting platelet rich plasma taken from your own blood back into multiple areas of your face to treat wrinkles and “rejuvenate” your skin. It is a very natural way to gain a younger appearance without surgery.
How does it work?
PRP Therapy involves blood being taken from your body (like a blood test) then put into a centrifuge that spins and separates the blood cells, serum and platelets. The platelets are then injected directly back into the face or the area of the body in need of rejuvenation. Platelets release growth factors that help the body repair itself by stimulating cells to regenerate new tissue. As well as improving the skin tone, the treatment also promotes healthy skin growth and collagen production so skin appears plumper and more vibrant.
What results can I expect?
PRP Therapy can be used to improve skin texture, lines and wrinkles. By placing it into the deeper skin layer, cells can be stimulated to a more youthful function. Crepey areas under eyes and in necks can show dramatic improvement and the general texture of the skin will improve. It is highly effective at improving sun damage and for dull, worn-out looking skin.
How many treatments will I need?
Each PRP Therapy session will take 45 minutes and you will be able to resume your normal daily routine straight after. Results will vary from person to person but we advise having 2-3 treatments 3-6 months apart. Your exact treatment plan will be discussed in your consultation.
What else can it be used for?
PRP Therapy can be used in joint therapy as a replacement to steroid injections and more recently our Doctors have been using PRP to rejuvenate hair loss and treating Male pattern baldness.
