PRP stands for Platelet Rich Plasma and involves using your own blood to rejuvenate skin, resulting in improved, healthier looking complexion. The treatment works by stimulating the production of collagen and using platelets within the blood, which contain lots of growth factors or proteins encouraging the repair of injured tissue or damaged skin. PRP can also be used to treat a number of skin imperfections and conditions like acne scars, stretch marks, rosacea and fine lines & wrinkles. PRP is a totally natural treatment and starts with the Doctor taking a small amount of blood and spinning it in a centrifuge. This allows for your platelet rick plasma (PRP) to be separated from your red blood cells. The solution is then injected into the desired area to help to reverse the effects of ageing.
Over the years, PRP has been recognized to help with a number of concerns including injuries, hair loss and skin rejuvenation. The sports industry recognises PRP for its healing properties and it’s used to repair sports injuries. More recently, PRP has been a popular skin rejuvenation treatment, sometimes referred to as Dracula Therapy or The Vampire Facelift.
