what is PRP ?
PRP stands for Platelet Rich Plasma which is blood plasma containing a high concentration of platelets, also known as thrombocytes. PRP can help regenerate and revitalise damaged skin, reduce fine lines and improve skin texture.
- Tired and dry skin, laxity of skin, uneven pigmentation
- Overall texture and tone improvement
- People looking for a natural treatment
- Signs of skin ageing
Direct injection of PRP into the skin works by supporting and accelerating the process of tissue regeneration and repair. PRP contains fundamental growth factors released by activated platelets to help initiate the tissue regeneration process by:
- Stimulation of new collagen production
- Induction of mesenchymal stem cell division and differentiation
- Stimulation of angiogenesis, the formation of new blood vessels
Preparing PRP is a quick and easy process. Blood is collected from you in 1-2 specially designed tubes which are then centrifuged for 5-10 minutes. During centrifugation, a patented gel within the tubes isolates PRP from other unrequired cells within the blood.
PRP is then ready for application. Because PRP uses your own blood it is considered to be safe and the risk of immunological reactions or contamination with transmissible diseases is eliminated.
Please feel free to talk to one of our skin care specialists to see if PRP is suitable for you.
