Skin Rejuvenation Using Your Own Plasma

A small amount of blood is drawn from the patient into a sterile tube in the exact same manner as a standard blood sample. The tube containing the patient’s blood is placed into a centrifuge and spun to separate the plasma and platelets from the other blood components.

After 8 minutes the plasma and the concentrated platelets (PRP) are removed from the same tube. Using a small sterile needle they are re-introduced into the patient at the site of the injury, scars, skin, obvious lines or wrinkles.

How many treatments and how often is this therapy needed?

While responses to treatment vary, most people will require 1-3 sessions. Each set of treatments is spaced approximately 4-6 weeks apart. There is no limit to the number of treatments you can have. Your clinician will determine your treatment protocol according to your skin condition.

What results can I expect from PRP treatments?

Improvement of skin texture and tone are noticeable within three weeks. Full collagen regeneration takes up to three months.

Can any skin type or colour have PRP treatments?

Yes, PRP treatments can be used on all skin types and colours.

Are results immediate?

No. Swelling from the fluid is what you will see and feel first. Over the days/ weeks the platelets will release the growth factors and pre-stem cells which will assist in more collagen growth.

How long do results last?

Treatment results vary, however, in most patients the results last p to 18 months. Touch up treatments will maintain the results.
