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.
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
rich in platelets contains growth factors is then administered into the skin. The treating
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
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
months thereafter for maintenance.
Who will be administering your treatment
