Platelet-Rich-Plasma (PRP) Therapy is suitable for individuals wanting to establish overall health and wellness. The treatment assists in the rejuvenation of new skin, repairs damaged or aged skin and restores skin colour and texture. 

 

             How it works?

Individual results may vary.

 

Platelet-Rich-Plasma (PRP) are found in an individual’s blood. These platelets contain hundreds of proteins called growth factors, which is responsible for repairing damaged body tissues due to injuries.

 
Individual results may vary.
The concentration of PRP retains growth factors that are 5 to 10 times richer than normal. Blood contains small solid components including red cells, white cells and platelets. The platelets also hold significant importance in blood clotting.

The patient’s blood must first be drawn for the preparation of utilising the significant effects of Platelet-Rich-Plasma (PRP). The PRP is collected via a venesection, which is the same procedure used in blood tests or blood donations. The site of the venesection is a large vein located on the patient’s upper arm, and approximately 20ml of blood may be collected.  

Individual results may vary.

 

During a process called centrifugation, the platelets are seperated from other blood cells and increased in concentration. The blood will be spun down into a centrifuge, separating the required components and this process takes about 8 to 10 minutes. The PRP is harvested, and the increased concentration of platelets is then combined with the remaining blood. 

 

There are a variety of methods where Platelet-Rich-Plasma (PRP) is utilised and are included in the following:

• Injected into the body to repair damaged tissues due to injuries
• Facial features including the eyes, mouth, nose and jowls
• Back of the hands
• Surgical and acne scarring
• Neck
• Stretch marks
• Promote hair growth due to balding in both men and women

 

      What to expect?

These growth factors promote:

• Production of collagen
• Promotes blood circulation
• Rejuvenates new skin growth
• Restoration of skin colour and texture
• Repairs damaged or aged skin
• Increase skin volume

 

       The results?

The results of the PRP treatment will appear after the first 3 weeks, and with 3 to 4 repeated treatments, the effects can last between 12 to 18 months (varies between individuals). Patients can return to their daily activities immediately after treatment, with no downtime.
