PRP Treatment

PRP

Often referred to the ‘Vampire facial’, PRP treatment (Platelet-Rich Plasma) uses the patient’s own blood for three main scientifically-proven benefits:

  • Facial rejuvenation
  • Promoting hair growth

This innovative treatment loved by celebrities harnesses the body’s own healing powers to stimulate tissue growth, resulting in a healthy, younger appearance. Platelets are the part of your blood which help with the healing and regeneration of its tissues. A small amount of the patient’s own blood is taken and the plasma is then separated out from the rest of the blood to create the platelet-rich plasma. PRP is a concentration of platelets that are then injected into the problem area.

For facial rejuvenation, PRP treatment aids the production of both collagen and elastin improving the texture and quality of the skin. It helps plump the skin as well as softening the appearance of wrinkles and lines and is used for full facial rejuvenation. Most used around the eyes, mouth and nose, it can also reduce the signs of ageing anywhere on the body, helping to improve skin thickness and elasticity.

PRP is also an effective non-surgical treatment for hair loss, an alternative to a transplant. PRP helps to reduce and protect hair loss by injecting platelets from a small blood sample to the targeted area of the scalp. The blood cells then stimulate growth and increases hair density.

PRP treatment offers both natural and comfortable results.

PRP is also regularly used to treat injuries. When injected into damaged tissues, PRP stimulates your body to grow healthy new cells, promoting healing. Many professional athletes use PRP treatment to recover after injury.

How long will it take to see results?

This is dependent on each individual and the type of area treated. However, patients can expect to see results within a week after treatment.

Is there any downtime after PRP treatment?

Expect to experience some slight bruising, swelling and redness immediately after treatment. Most side effects will resolve within a few days. You should begin to see results of PRP therapy a week or more after your first treatment.

Is it safe?

It is entirely safe. Because the PRP is from your own blood there is no risk of an immune reaction. Side effects or complications are very rare

What areas can be treated with PRP?

Commonly treated areas include around the eyes, jaw, cheeks, forehead, nasolabial lines, neck and décolletage.

What does PRP treatment involve?

Firstly, you will have a consultation with your nurse practitioner to discuss any specific concerns. You will have a topical numbing cream applied to the injection site for your comfort, and a small sample of your blood will be drawn from your arm. This will be spun in a centrifuge to separate the platelets from the whole blood cells, creating your own unique Platelet Rich Plasma.

This Platelet Rich Plasma is reinjected using a very fine needle to the problem site. Multiple injections are required to give a full improvement to the area of concern.

Is PRP treatment suitable for everyone?

Unfortunately, patients with abnormal platelet function, clotting disorders and chronic liver disease are not suitable for PRP therapy.
