Platelet Rich Plasma, or PRP, is an increasingly popular cosmetic injectable treatment. Its ability to naturally rejuvenate the skin and repair the signs of ageing by using your own blood cells, the procedure is extremely safe and effective.
What is PRP?
PRP is a form of cosmetic injectable treatment that uses your own platelet rich plasma. The plasma component contains stem cells and growth rich platelets, which when injected back into the skin, accelerates the body’s natural production of collagen and elastin to provide overall skin rejuvenation.
How Does it Work?
Dr Wass will draw a small sample of blood from your arm, much the same as you would have done at your GP practice. This is then spun in a centrifuge for five minutes to separate the plasma from the other blood particles. Lastly, the platelet rich plasma is then reinjected back into the treatment area, stimulating collagen and elastin production.
What Does it Do?
PRP can improve skin texture and tone, reduce fine lines and scarring, and stimulate collagen to achieve a plumper, more radiant complexion.
Who is it For?
PRP is great for anyone who is concerned by any areas of skin that are starting to lose elasticity and volume. It is extremely effective for that delicate under eye area where often clients notice signs of ageing. It is great for post hair transplant patients to help the follicles thrive.
Is it Safe?
Yes, PRP is actually a very safe injectable treatment. This is because you are using your own natural elements without the addition of any foreign products.
