PRP has become a highly sought-after non-surgical procedure for facial and skin rejuvenation. PRP therapy is a treatment which uses your blood platelets to stimulate new cell growth, helping to improve your complexion, skin texture and to restore lost facial volume.

Your blood is made up of four components; red blood cells, white blood cells, the plasma and the platelets.  We take your blood and spin it in a centrifuge, which enables the separation of the blood cells from your plasma and platelets. This is then re-injected into the skin to stimulate collagen and new skin cells.  PRP harnesses the beneficial functions of the patient’s platelets and poses no risk of allergy or rejection of the treatment.

PRP can also be successfully used to treat thinning hair and hair loss, particularly male pattern baldness.  It is important to start treatment early on and whether you are a suitable candidate will be determined during your consultation.


What is PRP used for?

The nature again of your skin is due to an imbalance between the rate of destruction and renewal of cells and collagen. By promoting the process of natural tissue regeneration mesotherapy injections of A-PRP improve skin quality and smoothes fine lines of the face, décolleté and hands.

The eye area is a particularly fragile region in which may appear bluish colouration due to a microcirculation disorder, sometimes associated with a darker area under the lower eyelid. Growth factors present in A-PRP stimulate the microcirculation around your eye, its brightness is improved, and skin around the eyes recovers its tone.

Localized treatment by injecting a gel preparation of A-PRP restores harmony and proportions in the volumes of the face. Treatment areas include nasolabial folds, cheeks, jaws, periorbital areas, crow’s feet, area of the upper lip, nose and forehead.

A-PRP injections are also an effective treatment of stretch, acne marks or for hypertrophic scars.

A-PRP injections in the scalp stimulate bulb cells at the base of the hair and the surrounding microcirculation. Vitality, colour and brightness of your hair are enhanced; their loss is slowed, and their growth is activated.

Analgesic and anti-inflammatory effects of A-PRP help to fight the pain and significantly improve the speed of wound healing after laser or chemical peel treatments.

Depending on how many areas you want to get treated, a volume of blood will be taken. This is usually between 10 to 30 ml.  Your blood is then placed in a centrifuge for around 8-10 minutes.  Once your cells have separated, the rich platelets are extracted and injected into the skin where rejuvenation is requested.

Most people will experience some mild to moderate swelling in the area of treatment, redness or heat, which are all common side effects and are part of the activation of your platelets. Because a volume of fluid has to be administered, swelling is inevitable. Bruising can occur, and may take several days to disappear.

Most patients will require three treatments at four to six-week intervals. The first thing people notice is an improvement in skin turgor and elasticity. Collagen production can take up to three months to occur, and the results can differ depending on the individual.  Because the injected product is 100%, your own, factors such as smoking, stress, and illness can affect results.  A series of three treatments can yield results for up to two years.

Like the majority of cosmetic procedures, ladies who are pregnant, breast-feeding or trying to conceive are not suitable candidates. This treatment is not recommended in people on anti-coagulation treatment, autoimmune conditions, have suffered any cancer or who have implants in the treatment area. Your past and present medical history, as well as your past cosmetic history, will be assessed to determine your suitability.
