Platelet Rich Plasma

By drawing on your body’s own healing process and the magic of growth factors in concentrated amounts, PRP therapy offers a natural approach to facial rejuvenation. For this reason, it is a popular skin rejuvenation treatment. The use of PRP harnesses the properties of platelets to create a wound healing process to stimulate collagen production, promote tissue repair and rejuvenate the skin with stem cells and growth factors. PRP Therapy is clinically proven to provide results

Reversing hair loss and stimulating new hair growth

PRP can be used as a sole therapy for rejuvenation purposes, or it may be used in conjunction with other treatments for a multi-faceted approach, including injectable treatments and skin treatments.

A small amount of blood (like what is required for a basic lab test) is drawn. The blood is placed in a centrifuge that spins the blood at a fast speed to separate the liquid plasma from other components. The isolated portion of the plasma that is richest in stem cells and growth factors works to signal growth factors which are key in your body’s natural healing and regenerative abilities. This ‘liquid gold’ is injected into the area of treatment. Results are often obvious once any swelling has settled, however final results are 12-16 weeks after the final treatment.

In most cases, multiple PRP treatments sessions are needed to achieve the best results. Your exact treatment plan will vary depending on the nature and degree of your concern. Most people are good candidates for this treatment. PRP is particularly appropriate for individuals who are looking for a natural way to restore their skin or hair.

There are a few factors that may affect your candidacy, so it’s important to book a consultation with one of our expert Cosmetic Nurses to find out if this service is right for you.
