PRP skin rejuvenation – Platelet Rich Plasma treatments harness your body’s own natural healing capabilities, they are likely to be more effective and accepted by your body.
PRP is an advanced and targeted anti-ageing treatment. It regenerates your own body’s natural proteins to help stimulate collagen levels in the skin, for a healthier, younger-looking complexion. You can expect noticeable results within three weeks of your first treatment – and great results after your fourth plasma treatment.
PRP is stands for platelet rich plasma. This treatment uses platelets- cells that form a major role in the wound healing process. PRP is a high concentration of your own blood injected into key areas to help promote skin rejuvenation, reducing wrinkles, increasing collagen production, in turn promoting better skin texture and skin tone. PRP is harvested from your own body meaning it is free from communicable diseases, and can not cause any allergies. PRP amplifies your it’s using your body’s natural healing process with growth factors.
Generally you will need an initial 3 treatments of PRP skin rejuvenation to allow your skin the best chance of seeing results. This is followed up with a maintenance treatment every 6-12 months thereafter.
Preparing for your treatment
Preparation for the PRP treatment is fairly straight forward. Avoid alcohol consumption the night before as this can dehydrate you and increase the risk of bruising during the treatment.
The success of the treatment is dependent on you being hydrated so at least 1-2 litres of water needs to be consumed the night before the procedure then another 2 – 4 glasses of water before you come in to have your blood taken to ensure you are nicely hydrated. The more hydrated you are the more liquid gold platelet rich serum we can produce from your own blood.
Arrive early to allow for a topical anesthetic cream application to the treatment area and completion of consent forms.
During your treatment
A topical anaesthetic cream is always used to ensure comfort
A PRP treatment can be administered using a skin needling device such as the Dermal needling pen or by injection into the dermal layers of the skin, over a course of four treatments, every 3-4 weeks. Treatments usually last up to one hour and top up treatments are recommended every 6–12 months for optimum results.
After your treatment
Skin redness can persist for up to 24–48 hours and occasionally this may last two days. You may also experience mild bruising or swelling around your eyes and lips.
Please ensure you drink plenty of water and do not wash your skin for twelve hours. Moisturise your skin daily and nightly for 3 days with no active ingredients until day 4. You may experience more dry skin than usual in the following days. This is completely normal. Once the redness has completely dissipated, you can resume your normal skin care regime, however we suggest you check with your practitioner, should you have any questions or concerns.
It is strongly recommended to limit exercise and sweating to avoid the possibility of swelling and bruising for twelve hours.
The best post care solution is to incorporate the treatment with a healing LED light treatment which we suggest immediately post treatment, this also adds to the rejuvenation effect of the PRP treatment you have just had.
- You may experience some redness, bruising, swelling and even some crusting. This can last between 2-4 days depending on severity of the treatment and individual skin response.
