PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma)

PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) uses the natural healing potential of your own blood to regenerate and revitalise damaged skin. The growth factors contained in the blood plasma is able to bio-stimulate your skin cells to achieve healthier and younger looking skin.


PRP involves taking a small blood sample and extracting the Platelet Rich Plasma to re-inject back into your skin. This can be done on your face, neck, hands, and scalp. During the healing process, the platelets are activated to enhance tissue regeneration by creating new collagen.


What results should I expect to see?

PRP stimulates the patient’s own cells to regenerate and rejuvenate the skin, resulting in:

  • Improved skin colour, elasticity, tone and thickness
  • Remodelling of the collagen fibres
  • Long term elimination of skin wrinkles and fine lines
  • Faster healing following aesthetic treatments (laser, chemical peel)
  • An improved appearance of acne scarring
  • Deep skin rejuvenation

What is the treatment process?

We will collect a small blood sample, like during a blood test, and have it centrifuged for 5-10 minutes in special tubes that isolate the plasma from the red blood cells. The plasma that is rich in platelets and growth factors is then administered into the skin. This will help regenerate and stimulate the growth of new cells naturally.

How soon will I see the results?

Results will show 1-2 weeks post-treatment after your skin heals. However for more serious skin conditions, it may take more than one treatment for the results to be obvious.

How many treatments will I require?

We generally recommend at least 4 sessions to see the best results, and one session every 3-6 months thereafter for maintenance.
