Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) treatment involves harvesting platelets from the patient’s own blood in order to inject them into problem skin areas, starting with the extraction of a minimal amount of the patient’s blood.
This platelet-rich plasma is then separated from the blood. Because platelets contain a high content of “growth factors” – proteins that help to heal injured tissue or damaged skin when they are injected back into the damaged skin areas the platelets release their growth factors which trigger surrounding cells to proliferate, in turn stimulating repair, increasing volume and rejuvenating the skin.
HOW LONG DOES THE TREATMENT TAKE?
After a short consultation with one of our specialist technicians, you can relax in our salon for approximately 30 to 60 minutes while the technician does her magic.
