What is Platelet Rich Plasma?

PRP stands for Platelet Rich Plasma, which is blood plasma containing a high concentration of platelets, also known as thrombocytes. PRP assists with the regeneration and revitalization of damaged tissue.

How does PRP work?

A small sample of blood is taken from your arm, exactly like having a routine blood test. The blood is centrifuged, and 10 minutes later, the PRP has been separated from the whole blood and is ready to use. Once on site, the growth factors and other regenerative molecules are released leading to collagen and elastin formation as well as cellular growth and skin remodeling.

What are the benefits of PRP?

This treatment has been shown to improve, dark circles, skin texture and tone, refine wrinkles, sun damaged skin, reduce scars such as acne or stretch marks, restore moisture and glow while preserving a natural appearance. PRP can also be used to promote hair growth when injected into the scalp. Visible results may take up to 6-8 weeks and will vary between individuals. This variance depends on factors such as general health, age, diet, smoking and skin type.

How many treatments are required?

PRP treatments are performed in a series of three sessions, 4-6 weeks apart. Maintenance treatments are recommended every 6-12 months for optimal long-lasting results.
