PRP (Platelet rich plasma)

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is a therapy that uses a client’s own ‘platelet-rich plasma’. A small vial of a client’s blood is taken (10 to 25mls) from your arm much like a blood test. It is then spun in a centrifuge for eight to ten minutes to separate the red blood cells from the platelet-rich plasma.

The concentrated platelets are then injected back under the skin by a series of tiny injections using a very fine cannula needles. These platelets are the “sticky glue” that stops bleeding when you hurt yourself.
Their other job is to spur wound and tissue recovery by secreting growth factors. By injecting it into the deeper skin layers, fibroblasts and other cells can be stimulated to produce new skin cells that have a more youthful function and appearance.

Clients notice a more luminous, healthy glow to their complexion.

PRP can treat the following areas:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles

  • Smoothing of the chest and décolletage
  • Smoothing of the neck
  • Rejuvenating the backs of the hands and arms, where we really show ageing
  • Decreasing scarring

FAQ:

What is PRP used to treat?

Doctors have used PRP Therapy since the mid-1990s to aid bone healing after sports and spinal injuries, but it can also be used cosmetically to improve skin texture and soften lines and wrinkles, particularly the crêpe – like skin under the eyes and on the eyelids, back of the hand, neck and décolletage and lines above the upper lips.
