Platelet Rich Plasma

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy is a simple, non-surgical, natural type of regenerative treatment that uses a unique blood tissue to heal a variety of conditions, from improving skin texture to stimulating hair follicles. Platelets are a natural component of our own blood and play an important role in wound healing and tissue regeneration.

In PRP therapy, platelets are separated from your own blood and transported to the problem area in a more concentrated form to promote faster healing and regeneration. The results of PRP therapy have been shown to improve over time, with evidence that the results last longer than chemical treatments.

Typical Uses

PRP therapy has various cosmetic uses, including:

PRP therapy has two main cosmetic uses: skin rejuvenation and hair restoration. The platalet rich plasma stimulates new skin tissue growth and collagen formation to improve the overall appearance of the skin. With hair rejuvenation, the platelet-rich plasma taken from your own blood is inserted into the scalp to stimulate hair growth and send dormant hair back into a growth stage.

What It Entails

PRP treatment uses growth factors found in your own body to promote healing. The procedure involves drawing out a tiny amount of your own blood, and processing it using a centrifuge which separates the platelet-rich plasma in the blood. This is then injected back into the areas you wish to treat to achieve a healthier body.

How It Works

1.During the consultation

If you are considering PRP treatment, you should start by booking a consultation with our clinic doctor. During the consultation, you will be able to express what you are hoping to gain from this treatment and, after reviewing your medical history, our doctor will be able to determine whether you are eligible to undergo this type of procedure. If you are a viable candidate, our doctor will then discuss an appropriate treatment plan so that you may achieve optimal results. If you choose to go ahead with the treatment, you will be asked to follow a low fat diet pre-procedure and given an appointment.

2.During the procedure

During the treatment, a small sample of your own blood (approximately 20 – 40 ml), is drawn and centrifuged to extract the platelet rich plasma in a safe, clinical manner. Your specialist may use a topical anaesthesia before injecting the platelet rich plasma and the PRP is then injected or applied in combination therapies. You will undergo multiple injections and the procedure will likely last approximately 60 minutes.

3.After the treatment

Post-treatment, the recovery period is expected to be quick but your specialist will provide you with the treatment and care that is best suited for you. If treating your skin, its texture will start to improve as new tissue cells grow and more visible results develop over 3-6 weeks. The results will continue to improve over a few months, and last approximately 1–2 years. If the PRP procedure had been for hair loss treatment, you may expect to see a fuller, healthier looking head of hair over time.
