PRP SKIN TREATMENT
Rejuvenate Your Skin With PRP Therapy
PRP SKIN TREATMENT
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy stimulates collagen production and triggers a skin rejuvenation process to combat the signs of ageing and sagging skin. It can be used anywhere on the face or body and is a great treatment for hair loss. Although this therapy is popular for skin rejuvenation on the face, it is also frequently used on the décolletage, hands, knees, scalp, stretch marks or scars, and under eyes. To further intensify the process, PRP rejuvenation therapy can be combined with micro-needling (known as the “vampire facial”), skin boosters like mesotherapy and dermal fillers to further hydrate the skin and soften fine lines and wrinkles.
WHAT IS PRP THERAPY?
PRP therapy is a popular treatment in dermatology and aesthetic medicine because there are no pharmaceutical products used and the result leaves you looking natural and refreshed. Blood platelets contain large numbers of growth factors, which have been extensively researched and widely used in the medical field to promote tissue healing. We utilise the growth factors and proteins retrieved from your blood to rejuvenate the skin. By isolating and separating the PRP from your blood, a concentrated, naturally occurring solution can be injected into precise locations. This procedure increases collagen production, improves volume loss and skin tone, softens wrinkles and gives back your youthful appearance.
HOW DOES PRP REJUVENATION THERAPY WORK?
A small amount (i.e. 10-20ml) of blood is taken from your arm in the same way as if you were having a blood test taken by your doctor. This blood is then placed in a centrifuge and spun to separate the plasma from the other blood components. PRP is then isolated to be used as an injectable. The whole procedure will take around 30-45 minutes, including injections.
PRP therapy is very safe and continues to be used in various medical fields since the 1970s. There is no risk of allergy or rejection as the PRP is obtained from your blood and the concentrated natural growth factors are only meant for you. You may experience some swelling and slight bruising at the injection site, but this should subside within a day or two.
HOW LONG UNTIL PRP REJUVENATION SHOWS RESULTS?
The results from this procedure are usually noticeable after three weeks, with optimal collagen regeneration taking up to three months to occur. Results typically last up to eighteen months, but the effects of PRP rejuvenation treatment may vary and most conditions will require two to three sessions, usually four to six weeks apart. There is no limit to the number of treatments you can have for skin rejuvenation and maintenance.

Is PRP Injection good for Facial Rejuvenation? Firstly, PRP injections are the perfect treatment to rejuvenate the appearance of their face and begin new collagen production in a completely natural way. The PRP facial uses growth factors from your own blood to generate beautiful skin that is healthy and vibrant.
Can PRP Facial improve my skin? Indeed, the PRP facial treatment is designed to help reduce or remove age spots, sun damage, fine lines, acne, wrinkles, sagging skin, and loss of volume around the mouth, cheeks, and neck by triggering the natural production of collagen and elastin. In fact, PRP stimulates your skin to produce natural collagen and elastin, the proteins that make up the support scaffold for healthy, youthful skin. As the PRP is produced from your own blood, there is no risk of an allergic reaction.
How does PRP therapy work? In essence, platelets are the part of the blood associated with the healing of wounds and repairing damaged cells and tissue. Thus, these powerful cells separate from the rest of the blood for a concentrated formula of platelets and other growth factors. Hence when injected they trigger the regeneration of skin cells and the production of collagen and elastin. As a result, the skin feels younger, firmer, and more supple.
Am I a good candidate for PRP? Most people can have PRP treatment especially if you are looking to rejuvenate your skin or tackle hair loss. Indeed, PRP therapy can be an excellent skin rejuvenation treatment for fine lines, wrinkles, uneven skin tone, acne scars, and loss of volume. As we age, natural collagen production within the skin slows, leading to sagging, lax skin, and loss of volume. The great news is that PRP injections stimulate collagen production deep within the skin structure to restore skin quality in a natural way. The best candidates are those who want a chemical-free facial rejuvenation treatment to build new collagen, and who are not pregnant or breastfeeding.
How safe is the PRP Treatment? PRP is a very safe procedure. Indeed, as this treatment is done using your own blood, the concern for disease transmission is eliminated and minimises the chances for possible infections and other side effects. As there is almost no risk of an allergic reaction and the procedure is quick and relatively painless, PRP injection treatment has a swift recovery and long-lasting results.
Are there any side effects after PRP? Possible side effects are mild bruising, swelling around the injection sites. These are usually temporary and mild.
When can I see results from PRP? First of all, we need to reiterate that results vary from person to person. It also depends on the quality of your own platelets and growth factors. In many ways, this treatment is more impactful if you already live a healthy lifestyle. Usually, within a week of treatment, many patients notice improved hydration in the skin. Changes such as improved skin volume and structure generally take effect within 4-6 weeks and improvements can continue for up to 90 days. We do recommend a maintenance treatment once or twice a year to maintain results.
Differences of PRP from Cosmetic Fillers Most people consider that PRP is a “natural” cosmetic filler that can be a substitute for traditional fillers. However, this is not the case. Actually, cosmetic fillers, which are most commonly hyaluronic acid fillers, have a viscosity and longevity that PRP does not have. Thus, while PRP can enhance the volume of the fatty layer below the skin, it cannot be used to add volume to treat hollow areas or age-related facial bone volume loss. Therefore, we often use hyaluronic acid fillers for volume correction and use PRP for skin quality improvement. Then, choose PRP for natural skin improvement and fillers to tackle loss of volume.
Is Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy popular? Clearly, Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy is increasingly popular as it helps regenerate the skin. As we have seen, PRP comes from your own blood and the substance contains growth factors that activate and rejuvenate cells in the body. When released, the growth factors, promote tissue repair and collagen production. In fact, PRP improves the skin texture, skin tone, firmness of the skin and reduces fine lines and wrinkles. No wonder it is one of the favourite treatments of celebrities that need to invest in getting great skin for their careers.
