PRP (PLATELET RICH PLASMA) TREATMENT

This procedure is minimally invasive and involves the use of platelet-rich plasma (PRP), derived from the client’s own blood. By stimulating collagen synthesis and tissue repair, this treatment can effectively enhance skin tone, texture, and elasticity and reduce the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, acne scars, and uneven pigmentation resulting in a smoother, more youthful complexion. This treatment can be done on the face, around the eyes, the scalp, on the neck, décolletage, back of the hands, on scarring tissue or stretch marks.

WHAT DOES THE TREATMENT INVOLVE?

The patient goes through a thorough consultation with the practitioner focusing on their concerns, medical history and contra indications. Information will be given on the product used and its short and long term effects, potential risks and side effects. The client will be given time to consider whether to go ahead and ask questions.

The process begins with a blood draw, followed by the extraction of PRP, which is then applied to the face via multiple small intra dermal injections.

HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL I NEED? / HOW LONG WILL THE RESULTS LAST?

This will depend upon the client’s general health, age and quality of their skin. Normally it is advised to have 2 or 3 treatments 4 to 6 weeks apart on a yearly basis. There is ongoing improvement in the skin’s appearance for up to 12 months.

WHAT DOES THE TREATMENT COST?

After a consultation depending on the areas treated and skin concerns, the practitioner will be able to give you a quote.

PRE AND POST CARE INFORMATION

Before the appointment it is best avoiding if possible blood thinning medications such as aspirin, non-steroidal anti inflammatory medications, fish oil supplements that would increase bruising and swelling, avoid vaccines 2 weeks prior and after treatment.

Keep hydrated by drinking plenty of water leading up to and after your procedure. Avoid touching, rubbing or massaging the injected area for the initial 4 hours following your appointment. Do not expose the area to extreme temperature changes, engage in strenuous exercise, prolonged sunlight exposure, or excessive alcohol consumption during the first 48 hours after treatment.
