Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)

What is PRP and how does it work?

  • Stimulate new cell growth, helping to improve your complexion, skin texture and to restore lost facial volume.
  • Stimulate collagen and new skin cells formation.
  • Treat thinning hair and hair loss particularly male pattern baldness.  It is important to start treatment early on.

What is the procedure?

Depending on how many areas you want to get treated, a volume of blood will be taken. This is usually between 10 to 30 ml. Your blood is then placed in a centifuge for around 8-10 minutes. Once your cells have separated, the rich platelets are extracted and injected into the skin where rejuvenation is requested.

How soon will I see results?

Most patients will require three treatments at four to six week intervals. The first thing people notice is an improvement in skin turgor and elasticity. Collagen production can take up to three months to occur and the results can differ depending on the individual. Because the injected product is 100% your own, factors such as smoking, stress and illness can effect results. A series of three treatments can yield results for up to two years.
