Platelet Rich Plasma

PRP also known as Platelet Rich Plasma is rich in growth factors and is the latest treatment in skin/body health. The treatment stimulates your own stem cells within the skin to produce collagen, encourage and support the treated areas. PRP can address concerns such as darkness (under the eyes), hair loss, loss of volume and crepey skin in areas such as the neck. Areas that can be treated include:

  • Face
  • Neck
  • Décolletage
  • Eyes
  • Scalp (Hair loss)

How it Works

As mentioned, PRP treatment can stimulate hair growth on the scalp. When PRP is injected into the scalp it regenerates and restores blood flow to the hair follicles and hair can begin to regrow.

Platelet rich plasma can also be used to address some sexual health issues. These treatments are commonly referred to as the P shot and O shot. For more information on this please call the clinic or speak to your practitioner.

Procedure

This procedure is performed in our clinic. Pain relief is available if required. A clinic nurse will take the individual’s blood and spin the blood in a TGA approved device. This process separates the platelet rich plasma from the blood which is then injected into the treated area.

Results

Results of the treatment include increased collagen and improved skin health. If the face is being treated results can include a gradual brightening and plumping of the skin approximately two weeks after treatment. If the scalp is treated, results can include encouragement of healthy blood flow and further natural hair growth. Best results can be seen with multiple treatments. The number of sessions required is dependent on the individual and the problem area, all of which can be discussed in length during a complementary consultation with one of our medical professionals.

Downtime

It is likely there will be some downtime following this procedure. Individuals may experience bruising or swelling in the treated area in the following days.

PLEASE NOTE: It is advisable to refrain from taking any blood thinning medication or products 48 hours prior to treatment (these can cause unnecessary bleeding and bruising).
