Although it has been used in sports medicine for decades PRP is now the latest cutting edge treatment in facial rejuvenation therapy. The rationale for the use of PRP is to concentrate the number of platelets from your blood, therefore concentrating the important regenerative growth factors that they contain.
PRP is a naturally occuring component extracted from your own blood. Blood is made up of red blood cells, white blood cells, platelets, and plasma. When platelets are activated in the body they release healing proteins called growth factors. Growth factors create an accumulative result, which assists the body to repair itself by regenerating new tissue, improving blood supply and would healing, all of which are important factors in regenerative therapies.
We recommend PRP wherever soft and hard tissue remodeling and collagen rejuvenation is required. For overall facial rejuvenation
loose wrinkled skin on the neck, wrinkling around the eyes etc.
A small sample of your own blood is processed in a highly specialised, state of the art system, specificualy designed to extract the PRP is a safe, clinical manner. This PRP is then injected into the areas that require tissue remodeling and rejuvenation. For optimal results we recommend a series of treatments consistently spaced apart.
Not suitable for anyone who is taking prescription acne or photosensitising medication such as Accutane, Doxycycline etc.
PRP always requires a cosmetic consultation before booking an appointment for the procedure. In this consultation your injectable nurse will give you all the information needed and run any tests required before starting the treatment.
Each person is unique and the response to intra-dermal injections will vary, though adverse reactions are rare. We offer topical anesthesia, laughing gas and other pain relief options for better comfort before injecting you PRP.
You may feel a “tingling” sensation after the procedure and there may be redness, slight swelling and sometimes bruising, but this is temporary and we provide you with full appropriate after treatment and care.
