PRP Skin Rejuvenation

Skin Rejuvenation 

PRP stands for Platelet-Rich-Plasma, which is extracted from your own blood. PRP commonly known as the ‘Vampire Facial’ is an effective treatment to repair and rejuvenate the skin naturally. 

Treatment

The treatment consists of a painless routine blood test and then it is spun in a centrifuge to extract the platelet-rich-plasma ‘the golden serum’ – which is packed full of your own natural growth factors. 

The PRP is the re-injected back into your skin. Unlike most vampire facials where the plasma is simply Dermarollered back into the skin, we actually inject it to ensure deep penetration and enhanced results. This procedure is not painful as your skin is numbed fully first. 

This is the ultimate natural facial using your own bodies rejuvenation and healing to boost and encourage your skin’s natural ability to renew and repair itself. 

The facial promotes new collagen and elastin development for plumper skin, helping to improve the look of fine lines and wrinkles, skin laxity and tone. Optimal skin rejuvenation results are seen at around six weeks. 

PRP therapy also stimulates hair follicles for thicker re-growth and hair rejuvenation. 

A course of 3 treatments is recommended 4-6 weeks apart.

 

FAQ’s

What areas can be treated with PRP Therapy?

Commonly treated areas include around the eyes, the jaw line, cheeks forehead, nasolabial lines, marionette lines and neck.

How does PRP Therapy work?

When the PRP is re-injected into the skin, growth factors are released by the platelets. This promotes healing and stimulates collagen production. Collagen, found naturally in the body, is the foundation of a youthful appearance.

During the aging process less collagen is produced resulting in decreased volume, lines and wrinkles. Through stimulating collagen production, PRP helps to promote even skin tone, reduced scarring, improved skin texture resulting in healthy, resilient, hydrated skin.

What is Plasma?

Plasma is the clear liquid part of the blood remaining once all other cellular components are removed. Plasma carries out many functions in the body including fighting diseases, healing and hydration. During PRP treatment the plasma is used to suspend a high concentration of your own platelets.

What are platelets?

Platelets are small cells in the blood that contain a high number of growth factors which help to heal injured tissue or damaged skin. Platelets are required for blood clotting.

What are the benefits of PRP Therapy?

PRP improves skin texture and tone and regenerates collagen which helps reduce wrinkles and lines, improve skin texture around the delicate eye area, tackle blemishes, improve scarring and restore a healthy glow.

What does PRP Therapy involve?

Before

During the consultation the doctor will discuss your specific concerns and expectations and explain to you any risks that come with the treatment. After a consultation with the doctor a light numbing cream will be applied to the injection site, for 30 minutes for added comfort. During this time a small 10ml sample of your blood will be drawn from your arm. This will be spun in a centrifuge to separate the platelets from the whole blood cells, creating your own Platelet Rich Plasma.

During
Once the numbing cream has taken effect your own platelet rich plasma is re-injected using a very fine, sterile needle. Multiple injections are required to give an over-all improvement to the area of concern.

After
Some bruising, swelling and redness are common immediately following the procedure. Most side effects should resolve within a few days and most people feel confident enough to return to work the next day. The results of PRP therapy are gradually visible beginning several weeks after your first treatment, as collagen production increases.

 

How long does PRP Therapy last?

Following a full course of treatment (3 treatments at 4-6 week intervals) the results of PRP therapy can be expected to last up to 18 months. A one-off treatment, can be expected to last for several months.

Can everybody have PRP Therapy?

Unfortunately not. Patients with abnormal platelet function, clotting disorders and chronic liver disease are not suitable for PRP therapy. Unfortunately not. Patients with abnormal platelet function, clotting disorders and chronic liver disease are not suitable for PRP therapy.

Please remember to disclose your relevant medical history with your Doctor during your consultation.

Does PRP therapy need pain relief?

A light numbing cream is applied prior to treatment to make the process more comfortable. Most clients only experience mild discomfort which is the result of the injections and only temporary.

Are there any risks with PRP Therapy?

Because you are using your own blood with no foreign substances, side effects are minimal. The injection process may cause some bruising, swelling and tenderness. As the platelets are the patients own there is no risk of transmissible diseases or allergic reactions. Infection risk is minimised by ensuring sterile technique and equipment.
