PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy)

A treatment that harnesses the body’s own power

Over time, the skin on your face can sag and become wrinkled, making you look tired and older than you feel. Platelet Rich Plasma therapy, or PRP, cleverly combats these effects by helping to make the skin plumper, filling out fine lines and wrinkles and rejuvenating for a more radiant complexion. PRP skin rejuvenation therapy helps to stimulate collagen, which gives skin a more youthful appearance.

PRP has been used in sports injury therapy for over two decades, and it is also known as ‘Vampire Therapy’, the ‘Vampire Facelift’ or ‘Dracula Therapy’ because it uses your own blood. These unpleasant-sounding names belie the fact that it is currently one of the safest and most effective skin rejuvenation treatments available. This skin repair treatment harnesses your body’s own natural powers to help slow or even reverse the visible effects of ageing on your skin.

The plasma procedure

The procedure usually lasts around an hour and involves taking a small quantity of your blood and harvesting its platelet-rich plasma using a centrifuge. These platelets contain ‘growth factors’ – proteins that stimulate cell repair and growth – which are then immediately injected directly into injured tissue or damaged skin, using a fine needle. Each treatment may vary from one person to another.

PRP therapy can be used anywhere on the body, but is most commonly used on the face – in particular around the eyes, nose and mouth – as well as the décolletage, backs of hands and scars.

The effects of your PRP therapy will take a few weeks to become noticeable, but should last up to a year and a half with two or three top-up treatments.

Recovery time for PRP is minimal and is as quick as a blood test visit to the doctors. Most patients are comfortable to return to their daily activities soon after the treatment, some even straight away.
