What is Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP), also known as the “Vampire Facial” is a highly affective and natural therapy utilized to promote new collagen and tissue regeneration; treating deep wrinkles, fine lines, acne scarring, loss of skin volume, wounds, and hair loss.

PRP is a revolutionary procedure which uses the components of your own blood to regenerate your skin. The ingredients of this innovative method reside within a fraction of your blood, called “Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)”. PRP treatment is enriched with platelets, stem cells and growth factors. Once you have received a platelet-rich plasma injection, the following components will accelerate tissue healing via new collagen formation at the treatment site.

How is that, you may ask? As we age, fibroblasts activity, collagen and elastin production in dermis decreases with age. Melanin production becomes irregular, causing dark spots and lentiginous. There are many factors which can cause skin to age, scar and mark, but there is a natural solution; PRP.

What Can Be Treated with PRP?

  • Fine Lines & Skin Quality

PRP treatments promote the process of natural tissue regeneration, which naturally slows down as we age. Therefore, PRP has the ability to effectively smooth fine lines and improve overall skin quality.

  • Deep Wrinkles

PRP treatment has been utilized as an effective procedure to restore volumes of the face with combining HA dermal fillers. Including areas such as cheeks, crow’s feet, upper lips, nose, forehead, nasolabial folds, jaws, and the periorbital area.

  • Dark Circles

In general, the eye area can be very delicate skin, which can turn a bluish colour due to microcirculation. PRP treatments have been seen as very effective procedures when being injected around the eyes – promoting circulation around the eye, which results in the improvement of under eye darkness.

  • Scars

PRP injections have been seen to improve acne scars, general scars and stretch marks.

  • Hair Loss

One of the main applications of PRP is the treatment of hair loss. Platelet rich plasma is a natural therapy utilized to slow down hair loss and stimulate hair growth. The platelets promotes hair regeneration in the hair follicles, while increasing blood supply. Thus, the hair becomes stronger and more enriched – enhancing brightness and colour of the hair without any side effects.

How Does PRP Work?

A health professional will extract a very small amount of blood from the body and place it into the PRP centrifuge – producing highly concentrated platelets by isolating the red blood cells.
