Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Treatment

Platelet-Rich Plasma

A treatment for Hair thinning, Fine lines & Wrinkles, Acne Scarring, Stretch Marks and Skin Rejuventation.

What is Platelet-Rich Plasma?

Platelet-rich plasma consists of two elements: plasma, and platelets (an important cell that plays a role in healing throughout the body. Platelets contain growth factors that can trigger cell reproduction and stimulate tissue regeneration or healing in the treated area. Platelet-rich plasma is simply blood that contains more platelets than normal.

How does it work?

A blood sample is taken from the client and placed into a machine called a centrifuge that rapidly spins the sample, separating out the other components of the blood from the platelets and concentrating them within the plasma.

The PRP is then withdrawn from the syringe and carefully injected into the targeted areas with a small needle. To finish off, some of the PRP will be placed onto the skin and a microneedling device used to penetrate into different layers of skin tissue.

Where can PRP be injected?

There are different types of PRP treatments available, each targeting different aesthetic concerns. These include PRP for hair loss, also known as PRP hair treatment, and PRP facial treatments, often referred to as vampire facials. Each type utilises the healing properties of your platelet-rich plasma to address specific issues.

Benefits & Risks

PRP treatments have demonstrated remarkable potential for promoting hair growth in both men and women struggling with hair loss, diminishing signs of ageing such as fine lines and wrinkles, and enhancing skin texture and tone. Its wound-healing properties can also effectively treat skin concerns such as acne scarring.

Though PRP uses your blood, some risks and side effects can occur. These include mild pain at the injection site, minor swelling or bruising. However, most patients find the procedure to have very minimal discomfort.
