Platelet-Rich Plasma Injections
WHAT ARE PLATELET-RICH PLASMA INJECTIONS?
Platelet-rich plasma treatment involve the collection of your blood which is then spun down using a centrifuge to separate the plasma and platelet portion. The platelet rich plasma portion of your blood is then injected back into your skin, intradermally, to stimulate new collagen production and encourages healthy cell renewal for a glowing, youthful appearance.
WHERE AND WHAT CAN IT TREAT?
PRP can be used anywhere on the body but it is generally used on the face and on the scalp to encourage hair growth. It can be used to treat:
- Fine Lines & Wrinkles
- Skin Tightening
- Hair Loss (encourages hair growth)
This will depend on the health and age of your skin. We do suggest a 2-3 treatments 4 to 6 weeks apart to have optimal results.
There is ongoing improvement in the skin up to 12 months after each treatment, depending on the rate the patient produces collagen. It is suggested that you have a follow up treatment every 12 months.
No. Swelling from the plasma is what you will see and feel first. Once this has subsided you will not see much change at all. Results are visible at 2-3 weeks and improve gradually over the next few months as the platelets will stimulate the growth factors which will help assist in more collagen growth.
A numbing cream is applied 30 mins prior to the treatment to minimise any discomfort.
Expect minimal swelling, bruising and redness for 12-24 hours. Some clients may experience headaches.
It really depends on the person. Expect minimal swelling, redness and bruising for the first 24 to 48 hours post procedure. The treated area will feel a little bit tender for a few days.
