Utilising the Natural Healing Abilities
of the Body to Improve Skin Quality
If you are seeking a more natural approach to anti-ageing, PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) injections may be of interest to you.
This treatment utilises the healing components of your own blood to stimulate the repair and renewal of skin cells.
What is involved in treatment with PRP?
A volume of your blood will be taken and deposited into a single-use, sterile bag attached to a centrifuge system. Your blood is then spun at extremely high speed until the different components separate. The part containing PRP, is drawn into various syringes and injected into the skin to be treated. Popular areas for treatment are the face, eye areas, neck and declotage. PRP triggers a natural wound healing response, stimulating the release of growth factors and leading to renewal of collagen for improved skin quality.
Will PRP injections hurt?
PRP injections can potentially have an uncomfortable or stinging sensation. We aim to keep you as comfortable as possible during the treatment, therefore a numbing agent may be used. Different approaches to pain relief will be discussed with you on consultation.
What is expected after treatment?
Most people will experience some redness, heat and mild to moderate swelling in the area of treatment. Bruising can also occur at different intensities. All side effects and aftercare will be discussed with you on consultation.
Is there any reason I can't have PRP treatment?
Like the majority of cosmetic procedures, ladies who are pregnant, breastfeeding or trying to conceive are not suitable candidates. This treatment is not recommended for people on anti-coagulation treatment, those with autoimmune conditions, people who have suffered any type of cancer or who have certain implants in the treatment area. Your past and present medical history, as well as your past cosmetic history, will be assessed on consultation to determine your suitability.
