PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma)
Platelet Rich Plasma Skin Rejuvenation (PRP) is a simple, safe, non-surgical procedure using your body’s own cells and natural growth factors to revitalise your skin, promote natural collagen formation, and rejuvenate your appearance. This skin rejuvenation treatment involves collecting a small volume of your blood (just like a simple blood test) and separating the red and white blood cells from the platelet cells. The platelet rich plasma is then immediately injected into the very top layers of skin Platelets release growth factors that gradually increase collagen, improving skin tone and texture. The proteins, growth factors, and other particles that the platelets contain help the body’s self-healing process. PRP treatment produces a rejuvenating and tightening effect on your skin, giving it a healthy, youthful glow. The treatment is suitable for all skin tones. Allow one hour for your PRP skin rejuvenation treatment. It is advisable to have 3 treatments, 4-6 weeks apart. While results may vary, most patients’ results will last for up to 18 months. Results are not immediate. Initially there is some moderate swelling from the fluid and once the swelling has subsided, you will not see much at all. Over a few weeks, however, the platelets will stimulate the growth factors that will assist in more collagen growth, and over the ensuing months there will be more improvement in texture and tone. Combining PRP with Skin Needling is the gold-standard treatment for crêpey, lax skin.
