What is PRP?
PRP is an extract of your own blood that contains a high concentration of platelets, growth factors, and bio-active proteins essential for tissue regeneration and healing. It has been used by doctors for many years to accelerate surgical healing; repair tendon, ligament and joint damage; heal skin wounds; and help regrow muscle and bone. The same physiological process that aids healing in other areas of the body occurs when PRP is used to improve skin health and appearance.
Why use PRP for skin rejuvenation?
When PRP is injected into the skin it initiates a local stem cell response. In the weeks and months following treatment these stem cells help to form new collagen, elastin and blood vessels to repair and regenerate damaged skin. This creates healthier skin, that looks refreshed
Who is PRP suitable for?
PRP skin rejuvenation is suitable for all skin colours, ages and skin types.
How often should it be performed?
Best results are achieved by a series of 3 treatments at 4 or 6 week intervals initially and then
When to expect to see results?
Immediately after the procedure, the injected area will feel tighter, and lines/wrinkles will appear minimized. This degree of skin tightening will not last, and will return more to normal after 4 days. However the PRP will be working under the skin to make new cells and improve the subsurface layers of the skin. This is not an immediate process and the more pronounced effects can be seen 6 weeks after the procedure. Most patients report the improvements lasting for 1 year.
