Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) injections are widely used in aesthetic medicine to rejuvenate and slow down the aging process which utilise the persons own unique tissue growth factors and healing properties to revitalise mesenchymal-epithelial tissue by improving blood supply and stimulating collagen and elastin formation, the results of which improves and increases over time.
PRP could be used alongside other treatments such as Mesotherapy, Wrinkle Relaxing Injections, PDO Thread Lift and Dermal Fillers to treat hair loss, deep and fine wrinkles, scar revision, stretch marks, lost volume to face and hands, sunken eyes and many more problems.
A small volume of client’s blood (10-20 mls) is drawn and through a process of centrifugation PRP is separated from blood and injected with fine needle into identified areas.
It may take a few weeks (or months in case of hair re-growth) for the results of the PRP therapy to become visible, but with two to three top-up treatments every 4 to 6 months, you can expect the results of PRP therapy to last for up to one and a half years.
Recovery time is minimal. There is a mild discomfort at injection site, minimal swelling and rarely bruising reported and could be alleviated with application of an ice pack and mild painkillers.
Duration of treatment 60 minutes.
