PRP on the face can stimulate collagen and elastin production which firms and tightens thinning skin, effectively smoothing wrinkles and fine lines. Because it can help boost collagen, it can also be a treatment used for improving overall skin texture and tone. PRP can be particularly good for people who have acne scarring or hyper-pigmentation.
PRP refers to platelet-rich plasma. This is a component of your blood that’s rich in white blood cells and growth factors. PRP can encourage healing and has been used to try to help the healing of damaged ligaments, tendons, joints, muscle and skin.
When you’re young, your skin is usually elastic and plump. It normally heals quickly when it’s injured. As you age, the fibres that support your skin and provide flexibility can begin to degrade. At the same time, our skin can lose hyaluronic acid, a substance that helps it retain moisture. The combination of these processes can lead to sagging skin, wrinkles and lines. The skin’s texture may be thinner, and you might notice more blood vessels under the surface. Your skin may even get irritated more easily, and wounds can take longer to heal.
Many people try to correct the signs of ageing once they’re noticeable. However, many skin rejuvenation products can have difficulty being absorbed deeply enough to be effective. Topical treatments may also contain chemicals that aren’t ideal for your body. PRP is injected beneath the surface of the skin which may stimulate collagen and elastin production firming and tightening thinning skin, effectively smoothing wrinkles and fine lines.
PRP skin treatments are a safe, popular way to address common issues with the skin and help tackle the many signs of ageing.
PRP, platelet rich plasma, uses the awesome healing power of your blood and the growth factors contained within its plasma which can deliver everything your skin needs to heal and regenerate.
The PRP solution can help stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, two primary ingredients in healthy, younger-looking skin. This is why it’s so popular!
PRP skin treatments can help deliver firmer, younger looking skin as well as treat a range of common conditions such as acne scars, sagging skin, wrinkles, fine lines, discolouration and hyperpigmentation.
PRP skin treatments are:
Most PRP skin procedures take about 45 minutes. Before the treatment, patients should stop taking any medications that influence platelet function, including some herbs and over-the-counter pain medications. You should consult with your physician before discontinuing any medication, though.
Be gentle with your skin following the procedure. It may be slightly red, tender or bruised. You may also feel tingling or pressure where the needles were introduced. These side effects are temporary. Using moisturizers that contain natural ingredients can help replenish the moisture barrier, which is essential for healing.
Because skin cells need time to develop, you might not notice the results right away. The full effects of a PRP skin procedure can typically show up within a few weeks or months. The benefits can last for up to 18 months. It is recommended for people to have maintenance treatments to maintain their results.
The PRP skin treatment process is very straightforward and appointments last around 45 minutes.
We begin by taking a small sample of blood, like a blood test. We separate the blood until we have the plasma we’re looking for.
That plasma contains the essential growth factors we need to help regenerate your skin and make repairs.
Once ready, we perform tiny PRP injections under the eyes then microneedle the entire face with your own plasma.
Afterwards, you have the option of using LED to help minimise the risk of infection and reduce inflammation.
Appointments last approximately 45 minutes and once complete, you can go about your day!
