PRP stands for āPlatelet Rich Plasmaā 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 skinās texture and elasticity. This is great for thin crepey skin, especially around the eyes, neck, dĆ©colletage, 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.
It is a very safe treatment ā 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 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.
Our Senior Nurse Amanda BEFORE - One of Amandaās concerns has always been her eye area. 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, Amandaās eyes have considerably improved. Also note her upper eye lids look much better as well. She is delighted with the results and would highly recommend this treatment!
