Who we are
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
What is it?
PRP is a form of cosmetic injectable treatment that uses the client's own platelet rich plasma. The plasma component contains stem cells and growth rich platelets and when injected back into the skin, it accelerates the body's natural production of collagen and elastin to provide overall skin rejuvenation.
How is done?
This is a completely natural treatment, as we use the client's own blood.
Our nurse will prepare the stem cell injection by drawing a small amount of blood (around 5cc) and then isolating and concentrating the platelet-rich plasma and growth factors by spinning the liquid in a centrifuge. Once the growth factors are extracted, and the PRP solution prepared, it can be applied or injected directly onto the damaged tissue and mixed with your remaining blood
Who is it recommended for?
Everyone who wants to:
Reduce lines and wrinkles.
Regenerates the skin.
Wounds to heal.
Stimulates bone growth.
Prevents hair loss and causes hair to grow back.
Reduces stretch marks.
Sun damage of skin.
Bags under eyes.
How does it look in the end?
You can expect some redness after treatment and may experience some bruising and some swelling. We recommend sleeping with your head slightly high for the first two nights after treatment. This is to reduce the swelling
How long does it last?
The result will appear after 3-4 weeks. The number of treatments depends on the starting point of the skin and the indication for treatment. The method is particularly suitable for the delicate area around the eyes and mouth, in the forehead, cheeks, neck, chest and hands. PRP therapy can be combined with fillers in the treatment of wrinkles and lines.
While PRP is considered safe for most people, it’s not recommended for anyone who has one of the following medical conditions:
HIV or AIDS
Any type of blood cancer
Cardiovascular disease, which requires taking a blood thinner
Skin cancer in the area to be treated
Bruises and inflammation, including swelling and redness, are the most common side effects. They typically appear immediately after the procedure and clear within four to six days. You'll also want to avoid sun exposure and harsh skin treatments during this time. It's important that you don't rub or touch in your face
1-3 skin treatments a year are recommended for skin improvement, depending on the client's starting point. The intervals are 12 weeks between treatments.
What to expect during and after your session?
After treatment, you will be red and slightly swollen. Redness usually disappears during the first 12 hours, swelling after approx. 24 hours. Bruises can occur, these disappear within 7 to 14 days.
Immediately after treatment, you should avoid makeup, alcohol, sauna, exercise, and swimming.
The skin processes begin to occur about 48 hours after treatment, while the first effects appear after about 2 weeks. Final results can be seen after 4-6 weeks.
