PRP

 

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)

What is PRP?
PRP involves the collection of your blood (approximately 8-16ml). Your blood is then spun down using a centrifuge to seperate out the plasma and platelet portion using the separator gel as a special filter. The PRP portion of your blood is then injected back into your skin to stimulate new collagen production, and to re-energise your cells into rejuvenating themselves. The product injected is 100% your own blood by-product (autologous) and is therefore a completely natural treatment.Frequently Asked Questions:
How many treatments are required?
This will depend upon the health and age of your skin. Normally it is advised to have 2-3 treatments 4 to 6 weeks apart.

 

How long do results last for?
There is ongoing improvement in the skin up to 12 months after each treatment, depending on the rate the patient grows collagen. Suggested follow up treatments at 12 month.

Are results immediate?
No. Swelling from the plasma is what you will see and feel first. Once this has subsided you will not see much change at all. Over a few weeks, the Platelets will stimulate the growth factors which will help assist in more collagen growth.

What are the expectations for PRP?
– Results are visible at 2-3 weeks and improve gradually over ensuing months with improvement in texture and tone.
– Cosmeceutical and Light therapies can enhance results.
– Advanced wrinkling cannot be reversed and a minimal improvement is predictable in persons with alcohol and tobacco abuse.
– Severe scarring may not respond.
