PLATELET RICH PLASMA (PRP) TREATMENT

“Using the body’s naturals healing ability to rejuvenate and revitalize the skin”

If you want clear rejuvenated skin, or skin with that airbrushed look, then this is the treatment for you!

What is PRP Therapy?

Your blood contains small cells called platelets that help stop bleeding. Platelets also contain specific growth factors that when “activated” promote tissue regeneration and healing with new collagen, and improved blood supply.

It captures the body’s rejuvenating potential and place it where it can provide the maximal aesthetic benefit.

Indications:

  • Wrinkle improvement
  • Reduction of pore size
  • Improvement in skin elasticity and tone
  • Treatment of blemishes
  • Acne treatment
  • Reduction of under-eye dark circles
  • Improvement of hair loss

Is PRP treatment safe?

PRP is extremely safe as it uses your own blood to repair and regenerate you skin. This procedure is one of the safest ways to revitalize and rejuvenate your skin. Like with any medical treatment, it is important to ensure that your medical practitioner is well-qualified and experienced in the procedure

When will I see results?

Patients report skin that appears more youthful and rejuvenated which continues to improve over the first three months after treatment. The results can then last up to two years from the date of treatment.

When done properly, PRP creates impressive results both as an isolated procedure or when incorporated into a treatment plan with hyaluronic acid fillers, neuromodulators and technology.

The results give improvements in the overall tone, texture and elasticity of the skin in a natural way.

Platelet-Rich Plasma Treatment

The Platelet Rich Plasma is not a surgical procedure. It is an injection treatment done in the physician’s office.

  • The treatment area is cleaned and numbing cream is applied.
  • Next, a small sample of your blood is taken
  • The drawn blood is spun in a centrifuge. This process separates the platelets from the blood. The centrifuge we use is the advanced Dr PRP system, designed specifically for extracting PRP from blood samples in a clinically safe manner.
  • The platelets are then isolated and prepared for re-injection.
  • The procedure takes about 30-45 minutes depending on which areas are treated.

Are there any side effects?

After the procedure, you may experience some slight swelling and redness in the treated area. This is normal and temporary, and we will provide you with the appropriate post-treatment care to minimise any discomfort.

Does PRP hurt?

As with many procedures using needles, each patient is different when it comes to sensitivity. You can ask the practitioner for topical anaesthesia before the treatment, if you are concerned about pain.

How many treatments will I need?

We normally expect to see the best results after a course of 1 to 3 treatments, spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart.

Are there any contraindications to the use of PRP?

You must inform us if you’re taking any medication, including blood-thinning (anti-coagulant) medication, or if you’re undergoing steroidal or any long-term therapies.
