PRP Rejuvenation Therapy
Platelet rich plasma (PRP) is concentrated blood plasma has approximately three to five times as many platelets as regular circulating blood. Additionally, it contains additional bioactive proteins that aid in skin renewal, such as platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF), vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), transforming growth factor (TGF), and others.
Lines, folds, and wrinkles can be removed with PRP, a facial rejuvenation procedure that uses your own plasma to stimulate collagen formation and cell migration. The effects of PRP therapy are mild and natural-looking, and they can continue for up to two years.
Additionally, PRP is perfect for patients who are not interested in or are not suitable candidates for injectable fillers because it is minimally invasive, comes with no danger of allergic reaction, and may be utilised to treat almost any area of the body without risk of side-effects.
Skin Rejuvenation with PRP
Platelets are the bodily cells that help the tissue mend and create new cells. PRP is injected into specific areas of the skin, creating an environment that promotes the growth of collagen, regenerates tissues, and leaves your skin feeling tight and smooth. PRP improves skin tone and texture, making it smoother, younger, and less wrinkled.
The PRP Facial is excellent for improving the texture of the skin, pore size, brown spots, fine wrinkles, and scars from acne, surgery, or other causes. You will require a minimum of three PRP facial treatments spaced four weeks apart for the best results.
Like with any microneedling process, our dermatologist will apply anaesthetic ointment to numb the treatment area and make you comfortable. The actual operation takes 20 to 30 minutes to complete.
You will be given specific instructions and skincare items to protect your skin as it heals, and you can anticipate some redness and minor swelling for 2-3 days after your treatment. Soon after the surgery, you'll start to see improvements, and things will become better over the next months.

Frequently asked questions
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is an injectable treatment by which a person’s own blood is used. Platelets are vital in the process of tissue healing, and the growth of new cells. PRP thereby promotes collagen production, regenerates the skin tissue, and essentially re-energizes your cells into rejuvenating themselves. The release of growth factors amphiphiles the healing process. PRP softens fine lines and wrinkles, tightens the skin, and improves skin tone and texture.
The treatment of PRP involves a fraction of blood, collected or ‘drawn up’ from the individual patient into a syringe. The collected blood is then spun down in a special centrifuge to separate its components. The platelet rich plasma is then reinjected, and/or micro-needled back into the skin.
Typically, a PRP treatment takes between an hour or two to complete. This depends on if the PRP is administered through injections only, and/or micro-needled into the skin. This timeframe includes an additional 30 minutes for the blood to be drawn and spun in the centrifuge, and topical numbing to be applied.
Generally, patients notice tightening and a more even tone to their skin in a week or two after PRP injections. These results continue to build for up to 6 months after treatment.
Technically, PRP can used to treat area of the body. For cosmetic purposes, PRP is most popularly used to treat the face and neck.
Results can be seen after one treatment, but the exact amount of treatments needed varies from patient to patient. Generally, 2‐3 treatments are advised, but more may be indicated for some individuals.
