Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is an innovative treatment that refreshes, tones and tightens the skin by repairing the elasticity, colour and quality of the skin.
PRP uses your body’s own rejuvenating properties to initiate a local stem cell response, which helps build new collagen, elastin and blood vessels. This process helps to repair and regenerate damaged skin for a healthier and more refreshed appearance with minimal downtime.
The PRP treatment begins by taking the client’s blood and placing it in a specialised centrifuge device to separate different components of blood. PRP is then extracted and prepared before it is injected superficially back into the skin after the area is numbed with medical grade topical anaesthetic creams. These platelets release important growth factors, which instruct other cells on what work needs to be done (e.g. form new collagen) and help to treat a wide range of concerns such as facial rejuvenation, fine lines, dark circles under eyes, hair loss and acne scarring.
Depending on the size of the area, along with the desired results, we recommend at least 3-4 treatments at 4-6 weekly intervals.
For clients treating hair loss, please be aware that the PRP application is not a “quick fix” and should be done as a part of a comprehensive hair rejuvenation program supervised by Dr Jimmy. Individual patients will progress at different rates depending on their age, general health, baseline condition of your skin and hair and the period since the hair loss first occurred.
