Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
Platelet-rich plasma therapy is a process whereby blood is drawn from the patient’s body in a manner similar to that of a blood test, which is then placed in a machine that separates the blood cells, platelets and serum. This is then re-injected into the area of the body requiring treatment or rejuvenation and is sometimes referred to as ‘Vampire’ or ‘Dracula’ therapy.
The platelets help the body repair itself by releasing growth factors, stimulating the skin cells to generate new tissue, in addition to improving skin tone as well as collagen production. This helps the skin grow back healthily, appearing more vibrant and plump.
RESULTS AND RECOVERY
Within 3 weeks of treatments, you can expect your skin to be noticeably firmer and smoother, with further improvements to come in the months that follow. These results usually last for about 18 months, and you will need to use top-up treatments to maintain its appearance.
You may experience minimal swelling and bruise for up to a week after treatment, but this is minor and will subside. Almost no downtime is required, and there is very little risk of any side effects as your own plasma is used in this natural treatment, making it a safer and more effective option than many other anti-aging methods.
