Platelets found in our blood stream are full of numerous bioactive proteins (growth factors), which stimulate natural skin healing and induce regenerative processes.
Using a concentrated mixture with cells taken from patients’ own blood, which are extracted by spinning it in a special centrifuge machine and then injected back into their skin, tissue repair and regeneration is produced. The stem cells injected prompt the growth of new collagen and blood vessels, which then rejuvenate the skin and reverse the signs of ageing.
Further benefits of the PRP treatment involve:
The treatment is performed under local anesthetic, therefore, it is not considered to be painful. Nevertheless, every person’s pain threshold is different; hence, this procedure may feel slightly uncomfortable to some patients, and absolutely painless to others. The discomfort level also depends on the area treated. It is however quite usual to experience significant reduction in pain after the first or second injection.
The PRP procedure has been used in surgery and healing sports injuries for years. However, recently it has become an extremely popular choice for skin rejuvenation and anti-ageing purposes. With very little downtime and a low possibility of side effects, the treatment proves to be a perfect tool to minimize the appearance of wrinkles, sun damage or scars and to promote healthy looking skin.
Anti-ageing results with this treatment are both, immediate and long lasting (up to 2 years).
Usually series of 4-6 treatments are recommended for the optimal results. Treatments can be performed every 3 months all year around.
In order to achieve optimal results, we use active ingredients and most advanced techniques. However, it is not unusual for the skin to display slight rosiness or post treatment redness, which will normally diminish within the 48 hours post procedure. It is especially likely for the skin to appear blemished after deep cleanse, when treating acne and heavy congestion.
In the rare event some patients may develop an allergic reaction causing temporary rash, which could last up to several days.
As highly skilled professionals we always want to ensure that our clients get the best possible care and advice prior and post treatment. Therefore, we kindly ask you to fully inform us of your medical history, changes in skin condition, reactions and sensitivity, as well as sun exposure and any medication you are currently taking.
Unfortunately PRP cannot be performed during pregnancy, however, we can definitely still treat our clients during this precious time, using only proven products and pregnancy safe techniques.
If you have skin issues while you are pregnant, it can be due to hormonal changes within, which, unfortunately, we cannot change. However, we can work with your skin making sure it looks and feels healthier, so that it is in a better shape and ready to be treated postpartum.
Yes, but it depends on your skin condition. It may take up to several treatments to get your skin into its optimal health. We normally advise you to start such treatments a year before the set date, and to have the final treatment 4-6 weeks before the ‘big day’.
As an alternative we would recommend our skin boost treatments, which would require minimum downtime and would achieve your desired results in a shorter span of time.
In order for us to provide you with the best possible service and to achieve the optimal results, we recommend coming in for a consultation, where we will thoroughly examine your skin and assess your unique complexion (your SKIN ID). We will take your full medical history and your lifestyle characteristics into account, in order to establish your key concerns and to ensure that you are advised on the most suitable treatment tailored for your unique skin.
