Platelets Rich Plasma Skin Rejuvenation

PRP is simple, safe, non-surgical procedure utilising your own cells for your skin rejuvenation – no artificial products used.

PRP stands for Platelet Rich Plasma and is derived from your own blood, containing over 300 active growth factors. Studies have shown that the body’s natural healing process is activated when PRP is added to a treatment area, releasing specific proteins that lead to regeneration and rejuvenation.​

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) - Blood plasma containing a high concentration of platelets (also known as thrombocytes). PRP helps to improve your skin's texture, thickness and luminosity. 

Platelet Rich Plasma therapy using your own platelets (taken from a small sample of your blood, just like a blood test) helps to accelerate and promotes your own body’s natural healing and rejuvenates without significant risk. PRP treatment will stimulates cellular rejuvenation and improve the skin’s texture and elasticity. This is great for thin skin, especially around the eyes, neck, décolletage, full face and hands. This is a natural Anti-ageing procedure that is highly sought after amongst the beauty and health industry.

The treatment itself takes about an hour and is performed by Registered Cosmetic Nurse who has been highly trained in this technique. A course of treatments involves 3 appointments, spaced 4 weeks apart, and results can be maintained with a single repeat treatment every 8-12 months.

How does it work?

Blood is taken directly from you (just like a blood test), placed into a patented PRP tube. This tube will be placed into Centrifuged that separates the red blood cells from PRP using a special gel. The PRP is the directly injected into the concern areas to support and help accelerate the process of tissue regeneration and repair.
