PRP

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.

Will it hurt?

You may feel some discomfort from this procedure as it does insert a cannula to extract the blood and a needle to reapply the plasma. These pieces of equipment are very small in size, to make the process more comfortable which is supported by the precise techniques used by your practitioner. You will be offered a mild form of anaesthesia, in the form of a topical cream, if you feel this will help to make the procedure more comfortable.

Are there any side effects or risks?

Any side effects are usually minor and temporary. You may find that at the site of injection, the skin looks red and has small bumps. This may have subsided with 12 – 24 hours with any remaining redness or bruising being covered over by make-up.

How much downtime can I expect?

Typically, a patient does not experience much downtime after having the PRP treatment. You should be able to continue with your day fairly quickly after leaving the clinic, unless you want to relax while the redness and sensitivity is settling.
