Platlet Rich Plasma (PRP) naturally restores collagen density, plump skin, refine wrinkles and provides an overall face and neck rejuvenation with NO downtime. Results are best achieved in a course of 3 treatments, spaced 4-6 weeks apart. PRP can be very effective when combined with with treatment modalities, including Fraxel, skin needling and Omnilux light therapy.
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) uses your body’s own cells to rejuvenate the face and slow down the ageing process. As well as assisting blood clotting, platelets also release growth factors that assist the human body to repair itself by stimulating cells to regenerate new tissues.
PRP can be easily separated from a small sample of blood through a process of centrifugation. This process helps to remove the red blood cells, leaving just the plasma which contains relatively higher concentrations of growth factors. The plasma stimulates existing stem cells leading to an acceleration in soft tissue healing and regeneration processes. The PRP concentrate is then injected into the soft tissue at the site where the accelerated healing is required.
PRP can be used to rejuvenate the face, including improving fine-to-moderate wrinkles caused by sun damage. The most common areas treated with PRP include around the eyes, the cheeks, the neck, décolletage and the back of the hands. It can also be used on other areas of the body such as on the skin around the knees, elbows and abdomen. It is a safe treatment because your very own plasma is used.
Platlet Rich Plasma naturally restores collagen density, plump skin, refine wrinkles and provides an overall face and neck rejuvenation. These platlets are naturally found in your own blood and help to stimulate tissue generation. When these platelets are injected back into the skin, they become activated and release growth factors, these attract stem cells which in turn create new collagen growth and overall rejuvenation.
Blood Sample Collected: a Skin Boost Cosmetic Nurse takes a quick blood sample from you. The sample is then placed into a centrifuge where it is spun to separate red blood cells from the platelet solution.
PRP Delivery: the platelets extracted from your blood sample is then injected in areas of the face, neck and hands where signs of ageing have appeared.
Cellular Regeneration: Stem Cells and Growth Factors begin rejuvenating the skin. This treatment is exceptional for around the eyes, mouth and neck.
