PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) therapy is a treatment that uses the body’s own plasma to rejuvenate and improve the condition of the skin, by restoring the skin’s healthy properties. Our appearance can develop dull skin, dry skin and lines and wrinkles over time, as the complexion changes both internally and externally. By using the plasma to help repair damaged skin cells and encourage their renewal, the appearance can look more youthful and radiant.
An in-depth assessment of your concerns will take place during a thorough pre-treatment consultation, which will determine whether PRP will achieve the outcome you desire. As the substance used comes from your own body, it is ideally matched to your DNA make-up and the regeneration of new tissues and cells.
The first stage of the treatment is to extract a sample of your blood. This is spun in a centrifuge machine so that the plasma is separated from other fluids and impurities. Once it has been prepared the second stage can then take place, where the plasma is injected back into the body at the chosen site. The treatment uses a fine needle, which is also useful for stimulating the body’s own healing responses, playing a big part in helping the natural process of repair. Producing dramatic results, PRP therapy encourages the production of collagen in the skin for a youthfully plump and hydrated look.
A great treatment for improving the appearance of the skin on the face and hands, more and more uses are being discovered for PRP. Medical conditions including alopecia (hair loss), arthritis and infectious diseases such as Covid-19 can benefit from the healing properties that PRP provides.
