Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy (PRP)

PRP

For even better results and less pain: Read about our new Advanced PRP Plus+ treatment

When we age, our skin’s ability to produce collagen and maintain hydration becomes markedly diminished. Coupled with sun exposure and damaging lifestyle choices, our skin takes on further abuse. Non-invasive treatments like Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy have risen in popularity due to its natural result and minimal downtime.

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy is a very natural filler solution, made of your own blood, otherwise known as the “Vampire” lift. This treatment uses your own ‘enriched’ plasma as an advanced anti-aging and healing treatment delivered to the skin in a process similar to mesotherapy.  The secret lies in extracting and increasing the autological factors in your blood.  These autological factors are what your body needs to heal itself. PRP Therapy re-activates the autological factors in your body’s repair system getting your skin to regenerate more efficiently.

Using PRP Therapy as an anti-ageing facial treatment is highly effective.  This natural and safe treatment uses your own blood, which is extracted and enriched (with no chemicals or additives) in an easy and comfortable process and is then re-injected into your face through several ‘meso-type’ tiny injections.  The benefits of this approach are the natural and self-healing effects of regenerated skin, improved skin vitality, improved sun damaged skin, and better skin hydration.

Popular Areas Treated with PRP – Platelet Rich Plasma

As PRP is derived from your own body, similar to stem cells, it can be used safely anywhere you would like rejuvenation of the skin or hair: damaged cells will be renewed and new cells will grow to produce fresh collagen and deep hydration in the skin.

Platelets contain important growth factors that, when secreted, are responsible for:

  • tissue regeneration and rejuvenation
  • increasing collagen production
  • recruiting other cells to the site of injury to assist with healing
  • initiating blood vessel growth
  • inducing cell differentiation which means that all the different cells required for rejuvenation are stimulated
  • bone mineralization i.e. making healthier bones
  • extra cellular matrix formation – this is the connective tissue that holds everything together and gives it shape and form
  • tissue adhesion especially in skin flaps, bone grafts and trauma. This means tissues stick together giving it strength.

The Benefits OF PRP THerapy

  • Reducing fine to deep wrinkles
  • Undereye troughs, bags and dark circles

Vampire Therapy won’t make you live forever, but if you are interested in natural rejuvenation without the risks and pain, then PRP is your best choice.

How does PRP THerapy works?

Prior to treatment a blood sample of 10 – 40 mls is taken from the patient. This blood is immediately placed in the centrifuge for 5 – 8 minutes which spins the blood and separates out the critical part for the treatment. When this process is finished the Plasma will be separated into three layers: (1) platelet poor plasma, (2) red blood cells, and (3) the ‘buffy coat’ (i.e. platelets and white blood cells) from your red blood cells. The concentrated platelets are extracted from the buffy coat layer for use in the treatment. The platelets are injected into the deep dermis or fat layer of the skin. The platelets will then gradually increase collagen formation which can increase skin thickness and overall health of the skin.

An anaesthetic cream is applied to the areas to be treated and then the platelets are injected in using a fine needle and with minimal discomfort.

The areas that are treated include the face, neck, hands and décolletagé . The whole process including re-injecting 2 test tubes of platelets only takes 45 minutes.

Results will not be visible for several weeks and for optimal results, a further treatment every 4-6 weeks is recommended for a total of 3 treatments.

Post Treatment Care

Avoid massaging the treated area for up to 48 hours after treatment. It is advisable that aggressive facials or any heat diffusing treatments like lasers should be avoided for the first month.

What To Expect of PRP Therapy

You can expect minimal swelling, bruising to a varying degree and redness for 12-24 hours. Some clients experience headache. Treated areas would be mildly red and swollen for up to 3 days after treatment. As collagen production will take to build, the best results can be seen after the 6 weeks. Follow up sessions may be needed, up to 3 times per year to maintain the skin’s strength, elasticity and plumpness.
