PRP is the regeneration of skin cells using the client’s plasma which is separated from the blood to reduce the appearance of ageing and wrinkles. It is a new approach appealing to patients seeking a more natural method to facial rejuvenation and it is a safe and tolerable procedure.
Platelets are cells in the blood which, when a blood vessel has been damaged, will initiate clotting and prevent further blood loss. It has now been found that platelets also trigger the repair process of the vessel by secreting cell signalling and growth factors. When we inject and/or needle platelets into the skin for rejuvenation, we are taking advantage of these properties.
Your treatment will consist of a full face of skin needling (optional) using your plasma as a guide to be infused in to the micro channels of the skin. The remaining plasma will be injected in to the areas of concern by one of our nurses.
