PRP stands for Platelet Rich Plasma. It was first used to help heal wounds and reduce muscle and other pains. It can now help to reduce wrinkles and signs of aging. We often refer to PRP as “Liquid Gold”!
Your blood is drawn by a medical professional and spun quickly which induces centrifugal separation. This separates your blood and allows the Plasma from your own blood to be used as part of your treatment.
In medical aesthetics, PRP is most used for:
1) Microneedling (aka “Vampire Facial”)
PRP enhances your microneedling results. It stimulates the formation of collagen which gives your skin improved elasticity. Microneedling is most useful to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, hyperpigmentation and acne scars.
You can treat various discolouration issues such as;
– minor scars and acne marks resulting in dark spots
– Melasma (dark patches usually caused by hormone changes)
– Sun spots resulting from excessive sun or UV exposure
Over a few weeks you’ll start to see noticeable improvements as your skin reacts to the treatment. Three treatments (one month apart) are strongly recommended followed by a regular maintenance schedule of every 6-12 months.
2) Hair Restoration
If you have noticed hair thinning or loss, PRP can be injected into your scalp to promote the regeneration of hair follicles.
3-6 treatments are recommended (4-6 weeks apart) followed by a regular maintenance schedule.
3) Tear Trough Rejuvenation
Using a cannula technique, PRP can be injected in tear troughs to help rejuvenate the area. This is most helpful to help with dark circles.
Three treatments (one month apart) are typically recommended however this varies one individual to another.
