So what is PRP?

PRP is the fluid part of your blood that contains special cells called platelets. Platelets contain chemicals that are vital for wound healing, for example after an accident or operation.

What does PRP Treatment involve?

A small sample of your blood is taken from a vein in your arm, much like any other blood test. The blood is then placed into a machine called a Centrifuge until the entire red blood cells move to the bottom. The fluid part sits on the top. This fluid is the platelet rich plasma. This fluid is then injected into the area of the skin that you are unhappy with. We recommend 3 treatments over the course of 3 months with a top up once a year for the best results.

How does it work?

Once the PRP is injected into the skin, the platelets are activated and they release their chemicals. This stimulates the skin to increase blood flow to the area, a new collagen is then formed (the springy substance that makes your skin look and feel firm) and the skin undergoes rejuvenation. This is all part of the body's natural healing process.

What kind of skin conditions can be treated with PRP?

PRP Treatments are effective in reducing the appearance of wrinkles, tiredness, sagging skin and areas that have lost their firmness. This includes the forehead, around the eyes, cheeks and around the mouth and neck. PRP can also be used to treat blemishes, scars and acne marks, dark bags around the eyes and hair loss on certain people.

Are PRP Treatments appropriate for everyone?

Unfortunately it is not; anyone with a blood clotting disorder, people on warfarin or people with an underlying skin disease should not have this treatment.
