Platetlet Rich Plasma (PRP) is a cosmetic skin rejuvenation treatment, which is recommended to stimulate the inflammatory cascade within the skin to not only heal the body but also encourage healthy cell renewal.
PRP involves the collection of blood, approximately 8 to 16 mls, which is then spun down using a centrifuge. This process separates the plasma and platelet portion of the blood with the assistance of a separator gel as a special filter.
The PRP portion of your blood is then injected back into your skin during the treatment, in order to stimulate new collagen production, whilst also revitalising your cells to embark on the rejuvenation process.
Immediately post treatment, clients will experience swelling from the fluid. This will subside. The platelets will then begin to stimulate growth factors, which aids in collagen growth. This renewal process will enable an improved overall texture and tone of the skin to become more visible from 2 to 3 weeks post treatment, and will continue to improve gradually over the ongoing months. To best enhance results, it is recommended combining modalities such as IPL and or LED, skin corrective treatments and prescribed cosmeceuticals. Your therapist will advise on the best treatment plan for you.
You can expect minimal swelling, bruising and/ or redness for 12 to 72 hours post treatment. Some clients may experience a headache, whilst others (although rare) may feel faint. A bruise at the venepuncture site may be visible for 2 to 3 days post treatment, but can be easily covered with makeup.
For the full benefits It is recommended to have at least 3 treatments, 4 to 6 weeks apart. Maintenance treatments are then recommended once every 6 to 12 months thereafter.
As the quality of plasma available between individuals will vary, a variation in treatment outcomes is to be expected between clients.
Patience is required as swelling may be present and requires 24 to 72 hours to subside. Follow up reviews are required 2 to 4 weeks post treatment and quarterly check ups with your Cosmetic Injector are recommended to maintain a successful treatment outcome.
Prices start at $350 per vial.
