Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)


Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is a extract obtained when blood is processed in a special way to extract the PRP from the blood. Blood contains numerous components, including platelets. Plasma is one of the main components of blood. By using a process called centrifugation, the blood components are separated. PRP is the result of this process. This golden mixture is shown to be very effective in facial rejuvenation and in hair restoration.

Frequently Asked Questions

How is the procedure performed?

The procedure is done as an outpatient procedure. Sometimes local anaesthetic is needed, but not always. The first step is to take around 10ml of blood from the arm (the same amount needed to carry out a blood test). The blood is then spun at high speed in a centrifuge separating the blood components. The PRP is then extracted from this mixture into a syringe. It is then injected in the area needed.

Which areas can PRP be injected?

PRP can be used for rejuvenation in the face, under eyes, neck, hands, under arms and vagina for rejuvenation of the skin. It can also be injected in the scalp to help hair growth.

How many sessions are needed for the treatment?

That varies on the area treated. Sometimes one session only is needed, however for maximum effect up to 4 sessions can be used.

Can you add anything else to the PRP?

Yes. In fact, it works best if combined. One of the commonest products to add to the skin is hyaluronic acid. In the scalp, adding mesotherapy vitamins enhances the results. Also combining PRP with a dermaroller treatment helps in increasing collagen production.

How does PRP work?

PRP contains platelets, which are known to release growth factors. These growth factors in terms signal for the production of other proteins that help skin rejuvenation or hair growth.

What is the aftercare?

In most cases you can go work afterwards. In the evening, we will advise you to massage the area with warm water. We also recommend you use one of our Active Serums at home to get the best results.

What are the risks of PRP?

PRP is one of the safest treatments we offer. It is very organic. The main risks revolve around the injection, such as bruising and infection. Also the results will vary from person to person.
