Platelet Rich Plasma therapy for skin rejuvenation

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy utilises growth factors retrieved from your blood to rejuvenate your skin. It is very popular due to the fact that there are no additions of any pharmaceutical products, and the end result can be astonishing and, more importantly, natural. Platelets contain large numbers of growth factors, which have been extensively researched and widely used in medical field to promote tissue healing. By isolating and separating the PRP from your blood, a concentrated, naturally occurring solution of growth factors can be injected into the precise locations you want to target.

PRP rejuvenation stimulates collagen production and triggers skin rejuvenation process. It can be used anywhere on the face or body. Although this therapy is particularly popular for rejuvenation of the face, it is also frequently used on the décolletage, hands, knees, scalp, stretch marks or scars. To further intensify the process, PRP rejuvenation therapy can be combined with skinbooster (hyaluronic acid) and mesotherapy.

It is fascinating to witness how PRP is cleverly being retrieved. A small amount (i.e. 10-20ml) of blood is taken from your arm in the same way as if you were having a blood test taken by your doctor. This is then placed in a centrifuge and spun to separate the plasma from the other blood components. PRP is then isolated from the plasma ready to be used. The whole procedure will take around 30-45 minutes including injections.

There is no risk of allergy or rejection as the PRP is obtained from you and the concentrated natural growth factors are only meant for you. Results from this procedure are usually noticeable after 3 weeks with optimal collagen regeneration taking up to 3 months to occur. The results typically last up to 18 months. Effect of the treatment may vary and most conditions will require 2-3 sessions, usually 4-6 weeks apart. There is no limit to the number of treatments you can have for skin rejuvenation and maintenance. Your skin will be noticeably better in every way and it is all down to your every own natural growth factors.
