PRP - Platelet Rich Plasma is a natural approach to volumizing skin and correcting fine lines providing a natural face lift.
When activated, platelets release growth factors which speeds up healing and restores a fresh, smooth, glowing complexion. Your skin's texture and tone will be improved within 3-4 weeks.
PRP is collected from your body's own platelets. This concentration of growth factors is then injected into your skin stimulating stem cells to promote regeneration for anti-aging, rejuvenating your skin cells.
When activated, platelets release growth factors that speed up tissue healing activating skin cells to restore a fresh glow. PRP is collected from your blood eliminating any risk of rejection, allergic reactions, and infection.
The sensation will be different for each person however you may feel a slight pinch when the injection is administered. We use topical anaesthetics to reduce this sensation so please let your physician know if you have ever had a reaction to local anaesthetics.
There are many conditions that can benefit from PRP, the main focus is on fine lines/wrinkles, stretch marks, scars and acne scars, hair loss, including male patterned baldness & alopecia.
A sample of your blood is taken, spun to concentrate the platelets, then used for the injections. We use a solution to prevent coagulation of the blood cells and a mineral to help activate the platelets.
Each area and condition has a different timeline however the average is 1 treatment every 3-4 months for 3-4 treatments. After this time, your clinician will go over a maintenance plan with you.
Results depend on a multitude of factors including age, sun exposure, history of smoking, area being treated body type, diet, and lifestyle. The treatment is working on the deeper skin layers so results really show 4-6 weeks after initiating a treatment plan. For certain conditions, patients see results as soon as the first treatment.
