PRP, it comes from the patient's own blood. The blood is drawn from the patient into a special PRP tube and put in a centrifuge machine. The centrifuge separates the blood from the plasma. The plasma is then injected back into the skin/problem area using a small needle and micro-needle.
Plasma found in blood is high in cell growth factors, which can rejuvenate skin concerns, reduce dark under-eyes, pore size, scars, lines, and wrinkles.
The areas treated are:
For the hands an anaesthetic cream can be applied if needed.
We do not recommend this treatment if you have had problems in the past with giving blood, please come to your appointment hydrated. If we can’t take your blood, you’ll be offered an alternative treatment.
Apply cold compresses to reduce swelling and arnica cream to reduce bruising.
Use a mild cleanser with tepid water to clean your face for 3 days after the treatment.
Avoid rubbing or picking the treated area.
Avoid any skin exfoliation for 72 hours following treatment.
Use a regular moisturising cream.
Avoid sun, sunbeds, swimming, saunas and steam rooms for 72 hrs after treatment.
Avoid any makeup for 24 hours and harsh chemicals (e.g., retinol) for 7 days after treatment.
We recommend a course of 3-4 treatments for the hands, neck, and face and 4-6 treatments for the hair loss. Each spaced 4 weeks apart. Maintenance is then once every six months if desired/necessary
Bruises can last for up to 24 hrs, then will subside naturally / Can be seen within 1-2 weeks for face treatments and after 6 months for the hair to grow.
PRP injections can be effective for up to nine months
Depends on the area treated. We recommend 4-6 treatments for hair loss, 4 weeks part. After 6 months new hair follicles will start to come through.
Numbing is applied to help with discomfort. You can bruise from the injections, especially if we are treating the under-eyes.
Avoid hot direct sunlight on the area for 14 days after your treatment.
Laying down is not recommended for four hours after your treatment.
Makeup is not recommended for 4 hrs after your treatment, until the injection points are closed over to prevent infection.
