How the process works

Rejuvenating damaged skin using the body’s natural substances.

The PRP process begins with taking the client’s blood and placing it into a specialised medical centrifuge machine.

The centrifuge machine will spin the blood to separate the most nutrient-rich parts – the plasma and platelets (PRP) from the red blood cells. It is then injected or micro needled back into the treated area by a Physician, RN or licensed clinical nurse.

Once injected, growth factors released from the platelets tell other cells what needs to be done, for instance, create new collagen or give instructions to treat a variety of problems.

Frequently Asked Questions

What areas of the body are treated with PRP?

Although PRP can be used on any part of the body, it is most commonly used for facial rejuvenation, scar reduction, dark bags under the eyes, stretch marks on the breasts, stomach, thighs, and hair loss both men and women.

How long will the treatment take?

After the initial consultation, generally, 2-3 treatments spread over 4-6 week intervals are advised; however, more treatments may be necessary depending on the size of the area and the desired results. Each treatment will take around 1 hour to complete. Follow up treatments may occur once a year after the initial treatment to help boost and maintain results.

When will the results be noticeable?

New cells will be formed under the skin right away, improving the surface layers immediately. You will see visible results six to twelve weeks after the procedure, with continued improvements lasting up to one year. To ensure the best possible outcome, you should adhere to standard medical guidelines, including eating a healthy diet, avoiding excessive caffeine and alcohol consumption, and plenty of rest days after the procedure.

How does this compare to other treatments?

PRP treatment is not the vampire facial treatment that has been popular online and made headlines in the media. PRP treatments are a popular choice as they are non-invasive and less costly than many other options. Alternatives include having no treatment, topical products, different aesthetic procedures, chemical peels, BBL, micro-needling without PRP, dermal fillers and neurotoxin treatments and surgery. It would be best to discuss your options with your doctor, especially if there are underlying health issues.

What to do before treatment?

Five days before your treatment, we recommend avoiding blood-thinning medication, including aspirin and dietary supplements such as

multivitamins, fish oils, omega 6 & 3, ginseng, ginkgo, garlic, green tea, vitamin E, and anything else known to increase blood bruising. We also recommend not to use medications that contain glycolic acid, vitamin A or retinol.

Two days beforehand, we recommend not to have other treatments such as laser peels, exfoliants or microdermabrasion.

What to do so after treatment?

For the first 24 hours after treatment, we recommend you don’t exercise to avoid unnecessary pressure on the region. If the PRP treatment is for hair loss, avoid washing your hair for the first 5-6 hours. You can take aspirin after the first 48 hours for pain management, and anti-inflammatory medicines like ibuprofen and Nurofen can be taken about 14 days after treatment unless otherwise directed by a nurse or doctor.
