Platelet Rich Plasma Treatment (PRP)
A non-invasive treatment where we use your own blood plasma and inject it into the facial area to rejuvenate and repair the skin.
PRP treatments (sometimes referred to as ‘vampire facials’) involve using your own blood plasma to treat scars, wrinkles and fine lines. It can also be very effective in minimising and repairing acne scarring. PRP has also been used to treat some sport injuries.
We now usually use the Skinpen to needle PRP into the skin which is much less painful than the standard PRP injections and avoids any bruising, swelling or other down-time associated with standard PRP injections. The intense needling process also maximises the repair and rejuvenation process.
Which areas can we treat?
This procedure can be used on all areas of the face, It is particularly effective on difficult or delicate areas such as:
Around and under the eyes.
Fine lines around the lips.
The neck and décolleté.
We take a sample of your blood and extract the plasma – the component of your blood that carries the skin-repairing platelets – and use the Skin pen to needle the PR into the skin. The procedure takes approximately 1 hour. It is necessary to use anaesthetic cream before the procedure which means most people find the procedure very comfortable.
The effects can be long-lasting, though we recommend 3 treatments every 3-6 weeks apart, to get the best results, with maintenance treatments every 3-6 months.
How long is recovery? Can I expect any side effects?
You may experience some redness, and intense feelings of skin tightening on the day of treatment which subsides overnight. Some slight very fine peeling may occur over the next 3-4 days but no real downtime.
Prices start at £250 for PRP with free Skin Pen treatment.
