What is Protein Rich Plasma (PRP) ?

 

To rejuvenate your skin, PRP uses the healing power of your own body.

 

It uses tiny cells in your blood, called platelets, which are packed with growth factors.  These growth factors then encourage regeneration in the cells of your skin.

 

It is good for rejuvenation of fine lines and wrinkles on the face, neck and décolletage area of the chest.  It is also used for invigorating hair growth.

 

The safety lies in utilising your own cells to encourage the regeneration.

 

 

What is a PRP treatment?

 

A PRP treatment involves harvesting the platelets from a simple blood test.

 

The blood sample is then processed to harvest the Platelet Rich Plasma which is collected and prepared for injection into the skin.

 

The PRP, which is rich in growth factors, is then carefully injected into the skin where it is needed after application of a topical anaesthetic.

 

Over the next few weeks the growth factors encourage the skin to rejuvenate.
