Platelet Rich Plasma or ‘PRP’ is the secret weapon in any successful skin rejuvenation treatment. PRP has in fact been around for decades and previously used mainly in wound healing and sports medicine. However, we are now understanding the immense benefits of using PRP for skin rejuvenation.
PRP is your own body’s natural ‘skin booster’ that kick-starts the growth of new collagen and skin cell regeneration. PRP is taken from your own blood, which is then purified and concentrated. First, a small amount of blood is drawn from your arm and spun in a centrifuge until the red blood cells separate from the platelets and plasma. PRP, when injected into the skin, releases a huge number of growth factors and signalling molecules to tell your skin to regenerate. The result is smoother, tighter and healthy glowing skin.
PRP can be used to treat:
- Acne and acne scars
- Other types of scars & stretch-marks
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Tightening the Jawline
- Tightening the Neck
- Chest and décolletage
- Rejuvenating hands
- Improve facial volume e.g. cheeks, temples, tear trough
- Pigmentation problems
- General skin quality
- Hair loss and improving hair quality & growth
PRP can also be mixed with Hyaluronic Acid dermal fillers for facial volumization or Mesotherapy (vitamins & minerals) for a skin boost.
