Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Treatment

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)

“One of the most natural injectables treatments available, PRP harnesses the power of growth factors within your own plasma to stimulate new cell growth, heal and rejuvenate.”

What is PRP?
PRP is an injectable treatment/therapy that utilises a portion of a patient’s own blood which contains a concentration of platelets. Sometimes referred to as Autologous Platelet Concentrate and Plasma Rich Growth Factors, PRP is a proven and safe treatment that has been used in the treatment of wounds, burns, tendon and muscle injuries within the medical industry for over a decade.

Having gained popularity within the aesthetic industry over the last few years, practitioners and patients alike have been beyond impressed with how PRP can positively affect the skin. PRP skin treatments are particularly good for improving fine lines and wrinkles, as well as stimulating hair growth into follicles that have started to deteriorate.

PRP is an excellent treatment that will compliment other modalities such as anti-wrinkle, filler and laser in a holistic skin plan to tackle a myriad of different concerns.

What is the product that is injected into the skin?
To be frank, the solution that is injected back into the skin is a by-product made up of your very own blood. A concentration of platelets found in the plasma part of blood is extracted from the sample, spun in a centrifuge and reinjected into the skin.

It is well known that the body has a great capacity to heal itself, for example if someone sustains a cut or fall or tears a ligament or tendon. One of the key mechanisms in the body’s healing process is the action of platelets within the blood, that release natural growth factors that can stimulate and regenerate damaged tissue.

What does PRP help with?
PRP can aid in the rejuvenation of skins experiencing signs of volume loss, fine lines, wrinkles, and skin laxity.

One of the most effective ways to use PRP is through the injection of these platelet rich cells into the scalp, which rejuvenate the hair follicle which can help thicken hair and bring hair back to life for those experiencing hair loss.

For years PRP has been successfully used in numerous skin care applications, including alopecia, scar revision, acne scars, stretch marks, skin rejuvenation and dermal augmentation.

What areas can be treated with PRP?
PRP can be used on any skin area. However, it is most commonly used on the face, neck, décolletage, hands and for areas of hair loss.

What is the PRP treatment process like?
PRP is a very straightforward procedure and involves taking a small amount of blood from a patient’s arm (very like a blood test sample is taken). This blood is then immediately spun in a centrifuge machine which separates the blood and concentrates the blood’s plasma portion. This platelet-rich plasma portion is then injected into the dermis layer of the skin with a multi-needled device to cover as much area as possible and speed up the treatment.

As a patient’s own blood is being used it is considered a low-risk procedure with no risk of allergy or disease transmission from the blood. The needles and devices used are very fine and well tolerated but we apply a medical grade anaesthetic cream prior to the treatment commencing which helps maximise levels of comfort. Slight bruising and swelling and redness can occur after injection but typically settle in 24 hours.

For the best results with PRP skin rejuvenation a series of 3 treatments spaced a minimum of 4 weeks apart are required. Results usually start to be seen in 2-3 weeks after PRP but optimal results can take 2-3 months. The long-term results with this treatment depends on factors such as age, general health and skin condition and a follow up maintenance treatment in 12 months can help maintain results.

The consultation is a $50 investment which is redeemable on the treatment itself and can be secured through our online booking portal.
