PLATELET RICH PLASMA – PRP

PRP therapy (also known as the ‘vampire facial’ made famous by Kim Kardashian West) is a treatment that uses your own platelets to stimulate new cell growth. This helps to rejuvenate the skin and slow the signs of ageing. During this procedure your blood is taken in the same way as having a routine blood test. It is then spun in a centrifuge which enables the separation of the red blood cells from your plasma and platelets. This is then re-injected into the skin to stimulate collagen. PRP harnesses the healing properties of your own platelets therefore there is no risk of an allergic reaction and it is a great way to naturally revitalise the area being treated.

The procedure is relatively quick and anaesthetic cream is used for comfort. Most people require three treatments at four weekly intervals. Collagen production can take up to three months to occur and the results can differ depending on the individual. Results can last up to 18+ months.
