PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma)

PRP stands for ‘Platelet Rich Plasma’ and it helps to improve your skin's texture, thickness and luminosity. 

Platelet Rich Plasma uses the healing properties of your own platelets (taken from a small sample of your blood), to stimulate cellular rejuvenation and improve the skin’s texture and elasticity. This is great for thin crepey skin, especially around the eyes, neck, décolletage, full face and hands.

The treatment itself takes about an hour and is performed by one of our expert nurses who have been highly trained in this technique. A course of treatments involves 3-4 appointments, spaced 1 month apart, and results can be maintained with a single repeat treatment every 6-12 months.

 

PRP FAQ's

Is PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) safe?

It is a very safe treatment – primarily because we are using the healing parts of your own blood so there is no chance of an allergic reaction or serious side-effects. Swelling and redness of the treated areas is common especially around the eyes, although usually only for 24 - 48 hours. Some bruising may occur and although this can be covered with make-up after the initial 24 hour period it can sometimes take 1-2 weeks to clear completely.
 

When will results of a PRP treatment show?

PRP stimulates collagen production in the skin and fuels the treatment area with stem cells and growth factors. This helps enhance the skin tone, strengthen dermal integrity and boost skin health on the face and body. Results of PRP can start becoming visible at 3 weeks and increase gradually over ensuing months - the results are cumulative and get better and better!
