Known for its enhanced healing properties, platelet rich plasma (PRP) is a popular treatment for athletes, helping to heal sports related injuries. The technology has proved so popular, that it is now being used in cosmetic medicine, utilising the body’s natural healing resources to promote skin rejuvenation and anti-ageing.
A natural approach to anti-aging, we take a take a sample of your blood, which is processed to separate the platelets – which contain growth factor releasing cells – from the rest of the blood. At three to four times the normal level, the platelet rich plasma is then injected into the area to be treated. Such growth factors are needed to repair the body, and can be useful for fighting the signs of ageing too.
Once PRP is injected into the skin, the platelets are activated and they start to repair the tissue in the area of the skin at the injection entry point. By actively stimulating skin cells, this results in improved thickness and enhanced skin tone. Anti-ageing affects, such as a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles – and overall skin rejuvenation – may also be achieved, leaving your skin looking more natural and radiant. learn more
