Platelet Rich Plasma treatments use a patient’s own blood to rejuvenate the skin. A small amount of blood is drawn during the treatment and placed in a centrifuge to remove the red blood cells; what is left behind is growth factor proteins that encourage healing and rejuvenation.
The PRP is either injected into the skin or scalp through skin needling or into the affected area through injection. The concentrated growth factors rejuvenate the tissue and speed-up cell turnover. Skin needling also induces positive inflammation in the skin that encourages collagen and elastin synthesis.
PRP can be combined with other aesthetic treatments to rejuvenate skin and address the signs of ageing. Alternatively, a series of treatments are recommended for the best results, spaced four to six weeks apart.
PRP can be used to treat the following concerns:
- Hair loss
- Soft tissue damage
- Sports Injuries
- Skin Rejuvenation
