PRP Rejuvenation For Your Skin and Hair
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy stimulates collagen production and triggers a skin rejuvenation process to combat the signs of ageing and sagging skin. It can be used anywhere on the face or body and is a great treatment for hair loss. Although this therapy is popular for skin rejuvenation on the face, it is also frequently used on the décolletage, hands, knees, scalp, stretch marks or scars, and under eyes. To further intensify the process, PRP rejuvenation therapy can be combined with micro-needling (known as the “vampire facial”), skin boosters like mesotherapy and dermal fillers to further hydrate the skin and soften fine lines and wrinkles.
What Is PRP Therapy?
PRP therapy is a popular treatment in dermatology and aesthetic medicine because there are no pharmaceutical products used, and the result leaves you looking natural and refreshed. Blood platelets contain large numbers of growth factors, which have been extensively researched and widely used in the medical field to promote tissue healing. We utilise the growth factors and proteins retrieved from your blood to rejuvenate the skin. By isolating and separating the PRP from your blood, a concentrated, naturally occurring solution can be injected into precise locations. This procedure increases collagen production, improves volume loss and skin tone, softens wrinkles and gives back your youthful appearance. We go into more detail about PRP therapy on our blog.
How Does PRP Therapy Work?
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 blood is then placed in a centrifuge and spun to separate the plasma from the other blood components. PRP is then isolated to be used as an injectable. The whole procedure will take around 30-45 minutes, including injections.
PRP therapy is very safe and continues to be used in various medical fields since the 1970s. There is no risk of allergy or rejection as the PRP is obtained from your blood, and the concentrated natural growth factors are only meant for you. You may experience slight bruising at the injection site and swelling but this should subside within a day or two.
How Long Until I See Results?
The results from this procedure are usually noticeable after three weeks with optimal collagen regeneration taking up to three months to occur. The results typically last up to 18 months. The effect of the treatment may vary and most conditions will require two to three sessions, usually four to six 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 so come into our clinic to see if this treatment is right for you.
