Concerned about hair loss or looking for skin rejuvenation? Protein-rich plasma (PRP) treatments are a non-invasive way to provide stimulation to the body to enable re-growth of hair, and to tighten facial skin using protein-rich plasma extracted from the patient’s own blood. This plasma contains growth factors that stimulate the production of collagen. A course of three is recommended, about four to six weeks apart, with a review four weeks after your final treatment.
WHAT TO EXPECT
A small amount of your blood is extracted and placed into a state-of-the-art centrifuge, where the protein-rich plasma is extracted. Topical anaesthetic cream is applied to the areas where the injections are to be given, and then the PRP will then be injected into your skin. The PRP stimulates growth of collagen and improves blood flow to the areas treated.
As the PRP is extracted from each patient individually, there should be no adverse reactions or contraindications. However, you must inform the medical practitioner of any steroidal treatment or anti-coagulant medication that you may be receiving. If you are pregnant, have received skin radiation within the previous 12 months, use specific acne cream, suffer from facial eczema or rosacea, scar easily or do not heal well, you should avoid this treatment.
If you’re concerned about hair loss or looking for a skin rejuvenation treatment, protein-rich plasma (PRP) treatments are the ideal non-invasive choice. Because the PRP is extracted from the patient’s own blood, there is less chance of a reaction. The PRP stimulates the area to grown new, healthy cells and promotes healing, so is ideal to use as a treatment for hair loss and to promote skin rejuvenation. A course of three is recommended, and your suitability for the treatment will be assessed at your free consultation with our medical professionals.

ARE PRP TREATMENTS SAFE?
