It uses your own plasma as a seed to stimulate further production of collagen and naturally improve the look of your skin. Areas of skin that are treated with PRP feel firmer, appear more taut and regain that youthful glow. It has also been useful in the treatment of acne scarring, skin tightening and hair loss.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is blood plasma that contains a high concentration of your platelets. Platelets contain growth factors and are a specialised cell involved in injury healing and cell regeneration. A normal concentration of platelets in your blood is 200,000 per micro liter, whereas the platelet count in PRP exceeds 2 million platelets per micro liter. This concentrated plasma is enriched with your own platelets, growth factors and natural stem cells. For full skin rejuvenation the optimal concentration of plasma is 6.8 times the amount found in your blood.
Plasma is rich in platelets, stem cells and growth factors, and this is what stimulates your skin to produce more collagen. The stimulation of collagen helps to improve skin texture and acne scarring while at the same time tighten the skin. Designed to strengthen the skin, this treatment is like taking a deflated balloon and before adding more air (or in this case volume) we strengthen the walls so it can contain the extra volume. We recommend 3 treatments one month apart to achieve good results. In a few weeks the skin texture and acne scarring is improved, with long lasting results.
The area treated is usually swollen for a few hours to two days and there may be bruising. The skin does not usually look different until a few weeks after the second treatment and people will experience different results. Since Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is autologous (from the self) and uses only your own plasma there is no chance of rejection or adverse reactions.FREE Consultations are available please contact us to make a booking.
