The Detail

Platelet Rich Plasma therapy, involves drawing a sample of your own blood, spinning it down in a centrifuge machine, and then, under local anaesthetic, re-injecting just the plasma component back into the body.

Therefore, Plasma therapies are a natural healing process that is not introducing any foreign drugs or substances into the body. As this is your own body’s material, there is no risk of disease transmission or allergic reactions.

The growth factors and platelets in the plasma are very rich in healing and growth factors. They act to kick-start a natural healing and rejuvenation process. Although no treatment is ever 100% effective, many patients experience long-lasting improvements after PRP. PRP can be used for both skin rejuvenation and to treat joint pain and problems.

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy is also known as plasma therapy, “Vampire face lift” or “natural face lift”.

PRP can be used to stimulate collagen rejuvenation in the skin. The blood sample is taken from your vein, process in the centrifuge, and then re-injected into the skin using very fine needles. Local anaesthetic is used to minimise discomfort and the whole process takes about one hour.

Platelet Rich Plasma therapies can be used by itself or often in combination with other treatments, such as laser rejuvenation, micro-needling or Omnilux light therapy. Your doctor or dermal therapist can discuss with you the best options for achieving your own personal goals.
