Over time, the human skin’s ability to regenerate reduces with aging due to reduced production and availability of the body’s natural growth chemicals (Growth Factors). Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is a product obtained from your own blood. PRP carries a concentrated amount of these Growth Factors. Therefore, PRP is a way of introducing growth factors directly back into the skin. PRP injection results in regeneration of skin with increased volume, elasticity and firm/tight skin that looks much younger. It's a much more natural procedure and utilizes your own healing potential from your platelets.

This therapy can be done on your face, neck, hands, and scalp. During the healing process, the platelets are activated to enhance tissue regeneration by creating new collagen.

In addition to skin, PRP therapy is also effective in treating some forms of arthritis, tendinitis and sports injuries as well as difficult to heal chronic wounds.

Treatment process

A small blood sample is collected, like during a routine blood test, into a special tube and centrifuged. That separates the plasma component from the red blood cells. The plasma that is rich in platelets contains growth factors is then administered into the skin. The treating area of skin is made numb so that you feel minimal or no pain during treatment. This will help regenerate and stimulate the growth of new cells naturally.

What results you can expect to see after PRP treatment
  • Improved skin colour, elasticity, tone and thickness.
  • Remodelling of collagen fibres and deep skin rejuvenation.
  • Long term elimination of skin wrinkles and fine lines.
  • Faster healing following other aesthetic treatments like chemical peels.
  • An improved and smoother appearance of acne scarred skin.
How soon you will see the results

Results will start to be visible after 1-2 weeks post-treatment, but it takes at least 4-6 weeks for it to be more prominent after your skin healing process well established. Duration, of course, depends more on one's initial skin condition and other co-existing conditions. Therefore, for more serious skin conditions, it may require more than one treatment for the results to be obvious on a regular interval.

How many treatments you will require

We generally recommend at least 4 sessions to see the best results, and one session every 3-6 months thereafter for maintenance.
