PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy)

PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy)

Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy is a non-surgical treatment that utilizes your own body’s healing abilities to stimulate skin and follicle recovery. It is a natural treatment that uses the platelets from your own blood. These activated platelets secrete and release at least 7 different growth factors which enhance the natural healing process of the skin and hair follicles.

During a PRP Therapy treatment or vampire facial, a small amount of blood is drawn from you into a sterile tube in the exact same manner as a standard blood test. The tube containing your blood is placed into a centrifuge and spun to separate the plasma and platelets from the other blood components.

After a few minutes, the PRP layer is removed from the same tube and re-introduced into the body at the site to be treated. Using a small sterile needle or micro needling device, your practitioner will inject the PRP in and around the desired site or micro needle the PRP as a vampire facial treatment.

The potential benefits of PRP have led to widespread interest in its use for anti-aging and regenerative purposes. The healing properties of the blood components in PRP can be used as a cosmetic treatment for the following:

  • Reducing fine lines and wrinkles
  • Tightening and toning skin
  • Mild collagen and volume loss
  • Crow’s feet and dark under eye circles
  • Acne scarring
  • Rosacea
  • Stimulates new cell growth
  • Improves skin tone and texture
  • Improves skin complexion
  • Helps with first signs of ageing
  • Improves skin complexion

PRP therapy is predominantly used on the face, particularly around the eyes, mouth and nose although it may be used on the backs of the hands and all over the body, more commonly the décolletage to give a more youthful and radiant appearance.

We will examine your skin and other factors and recommend a treatment regimen. Often PRP treatment is performed in series of three sessions, 3-6 weeks apart. Maintenance treatments are recommended every 6-12 months for optimal long-lasting results.
