Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)

A favourite amongst celebrities such as Kim Kardashian, Angelina Jolie and Tiger Woods for complete skin revitalisation. PRP works by stimulating new collagen production and encouraging healing and healthy cell renewal. 

This cosmetic treatment uses your own platelets in your blood to restore and stimulate collagen, which is the protein responsible for keeping tissue and muscles tight and strong. PRP is simply a method for directing your body’s own restorative resources to places that need it most, and because it uses your own blood, it is ideal for those looking for natural skin rejuvenation without the use of toxins, fillers or other substances.

Commonly known as the 'Vampire Facial', PRP treatments have proven successful for treating sagging skin, fine lines, wrinkles, scarring and evening skin tone, and while it doesn’t entail undergoing any type of surgical procedure, it does use your own blood as part of the cocktail to promote collagen growth underneath the skin.

What problem areas does PRP target?


What kind of results do you get? natural platelet rich formula can help improve sun-damaged skin and fine lines, dark circles under the eyes, pigmentation and more! The most common treatment areas for PRP are face, neck and décolletage. Being an all-natural treatment, results are not immediate, but will gradually start to become evident over the next 3-6 months.




What can I expect in the treatment?


A small amount of blood is drawn from the arm, treated in a centrifuge, and then the platelet-rich plasma is injected into the face and or other treated areas. Injections are made in strategic areas to encourage skin healing and renewal through new collagen production and fresh skin cells full of human growth factors. This increase in collagen and growth factors creates a more youthful, plumper, and firmer appearing skin. Whilst the procedure is not painful, some minor discomfort may be experienced.




How long does each treatment take?


Treatment takes about 40 to 60 minutes, depending on which areas are being treated.




How many treatments will I need?

What are the possible side effects?


Although side effects are uncommon they can occur. They are usually temporary and mild in nature. There may be redness and some tenderness on the first day that appears and some occasional bruising.
