Platelet-Rich Plasma skin treatment
PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma) skin treatment is a cosmetic procedure that involves using your own blood plasma to rejuvenate the skin. A small amount of blood is drawn and then processed to separate the platelets and plasma from the red and white blood cells. The resulting PRP solution is then injected or applied to your skin, where it can stimulate collagen production and improve skin texture, tone, and elasticity.
PRP skin treatment is used to address signs of aging, such as fine lines, wrinkles, and sun damage, as well as to improve the appearance of scars and acne marks. PRP is rich in platelets, which have potent healing and regenerative properties that can help to promote the production of new collagen and elastin. This makes it an effective treatment option for various skin concerns, as it can improve the overall texture and tone of the skin.
It is a minimally invasive procedure and typically takes about 30 minutes to an hour, depending on the size and number of areas being treated. Most patients require multiple sessions spaced several weeks apart to achieve optimal results.
Our PRP skin treatments typically involve minimal discomfort. The treatment usually begins with a blood draw, which may cause some mild discomfort or a brief pinching sensation; however, a topical anaesthetic will be applied to the treatment area to minimize any pain during the injection or micro-needling process.
Generally, you can expect minimal downtime following a PRP skin treatment. While some patients may experience mild redness, swelling, or bruising at the injection site, these side effects typically resolve within a few hours to a few days.
You can generally return to your normal daily activities immediately after the procedure. However, it’s important to avoid direct sun exposure and wear sunscreen to protect the treated area as it heals.
