PRP stands for âPlatelet Rich Plasmaâ and it produces a rejuvenating and tightening effect on your skin.
PRP therapy uses âplatelet-rich plasmaâ, (your own platelets and plasma taken from a small sample of your blood), to stimulate collagen and improve the skinâs texture and elasticity. This is great for thin crepey skin, especially around the eyes, neck, dĂŠcolletage, full face and hands. You will generally need one treatment per month for 3-4 months.
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.
It is a very safe treatment â primarily because we are using your own blood so there is no chance of an allergic reaction or serious side-effects. However compared to Botox there usually is a more prolonged âdowntimeâ and for this reason we would not recommend having the treatment within the 3-4 weeks before a special event. Swelling and redness of the treated areas is common and may be dramatic â eg around the eyes, although usually only for 24 hours. Some bruising is also to be expected and although this can be covered with make-up after the initial 24 hour period it may take 1-2 weeks to clear completely.
Team Member Amanda BEFORE - One of Amandaâs concerns has always been her tear troughs. Having a puffy under eye area can make you look far more tired and older than you actually are. Amanda had her first PRP for Eyes treatment in 2010.
3 Years AFTER - Three years after a course of three PRP for Eyes treatments, Amandaâs under eye puffiness has considerably improved. She is delighted with the results and would highly recommend this treatment!
