Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy

How does it work?

A small amount of blood is drawn from the patient into a sterile tube in the exact same manner as a standard blood sample. The tube containing a patient’s blood is placed into a centrifuge and spun to separate the plasma and platelets from the other blood components. After a few minutes, the plasma and concentrated platelets are removed from the same tube and re-introduced into the patient at the site of the injury, scars, skin, obvious lines or wrinkles. Using a small sterile needle, your physician will inject the PRP in and around the desired site.

This is an accomplished 100% natural procedure, without using animal products derivative or any other foreign material. Research and clinical data show PRP obtained from the patient’s own blood is safe, with very minimal risk of adverse reactions or complications.

Because the platelets are produced from your own blood, there is no risk of rejections or disease transmission.

How long does treatment take?

It takes 30 – 45 minutes.

How many treatments and how often is therapy needed?

While responses to treatment vary, most people will require 1-3 sessions. Each set of treatments is spaced approximately 4-6 weeks apart. There is no limit to the number of treatments you can have. Your clinician will determine your treatment protocol according to your skin condition.

What results can I expect from PRP treatments?

Improvement of skin texture and tone are noticeable within three weeks. Full collagen regeneration takes up to three months.

Can any skin type or colour have PRP treatment?

Yes, PRP treatments can be used on all skin types and colours.

Are results immediate?

No. Swelling from the fluid is what you will see and feel first. Over the days/weeks the platelets will release the growth factors and pre stem cells which will assist in more collagen growth.

How long do results last?

Treatment results vary, however, in most patients the results last up to 18 months. Touch-up treatments will maintain the results.
