PRP is used for skin rejuvenation treatment where a small collection of your own blood is obtained, processed and then re-injected into the skin. It refreshes the skin, helps improve the skin texture and can give you a more vibrant appearance by increasing levels of collagen in the skin. It can also be used to encourage hair growth.
The results depend on your own platelet function and individual variations occur. Sometimes improvements at a microscopic level aren’t visible – so we cannot guarantee your result. Most people should have 2-3 treatments about 4-6 weeks apart for optimal results. Results may be visible within 2-3 weeks and they continue to improve over months. We prefer to use anaesthetic cream to make treatment comfortable for you.
Avoid touching the area for 2 hours after treatment and avoid makeup, skin products, intense exercise, excess alcohol and saunas for the rest of the day. Swelling can be reduced by cool packs. After 24 hours you can use arnica or Hirudoid cream to help resolve any bruising. After PRP for hair loss, wait until the next day to wash your hair.
Our Registered Nurses & Cosmetic Doctors will guide you through a comprehensive 45-minute cosmetic consultation, to understand your individual needs and desires. Sometimes only one type of treatment may be recommended, or we may suggest a combination of treatments to achieve the skin improvement you are looking for. Either way, you will know that the advice we offer you is customised just for your needs.
* The consultation fee is redeemable off your first treatment or used towards any product purchase in clinic.
