Due to the incredible rejuvenation potential of PRP, it has been used in many aspects of medicine for many years, including orthopaedics, sports medicine, dentistry and surgery.
In cosmetic medicine, it can be used on any part of the body where repair, rejuvenation and improvement are required. It is particularly suitable for around the eyes and lips (where other treatments are more problematic), cheeks, mid-face, jaw line, forehead, neck, décolletage, hands and there is even some evidence for use on the scalp for hair rejuvenation.
A vial of blood is drawn off in much the same way blood is taken for blood testing, this is then placed in a centrifuge (a machine that separates the blood into different layers) for 10 minutes and the platelet rich plasma is then extracted. This is then injected into the skin where it is required. Once the PRP is introduced into the skin, it starts off the rejuvenation process. Platelets, growth factors and stem cells are essential to the body for repair and regeneration, accelerating the normal healing processes, increasing the production of collagen and elastin, initiating new blood vessel growth, stimulation of stem cells to form new tissue and producing increased support for the skin.
The whole treatment will take about an hour to perform and you will be able to return to normal activities immediately afterwards although there may be some swelling and bruising.
One of the most exciting features of PRP treatment is that it is YOUR blood – nothing artificial or modified and therefore very safe! As it is your own plasma that is injected, allergic reactions do not occur. Preparation for the treatment is simple and quick and carried out in the treatment room. The whole procedure is carried out by a medical professional under aseptic technique so there is no contamination and the risk of infection is very low.
Topical anaesthetic cream is applied to the treatment area to minimise discomfort and local anaesthetic is also added to the syringe prior to injection to ensure the procedure is as comfortable as possible. There may be some minor discomfort when treating sensitive areas.
Treatment may not be suitable for you if there is a history of platelet disorders, certain skin diseases, certain medications or if there is an infection present.
As with any injectable treatment, there is likely to be minor swelling and bruising following the procedure which usually settles within 24-48 hours. It sometimes takes up to 7 days for the swelling to resolve and very occasionally, bruising may be more severe and take longer to disappear. The skin is often a little red afterwards but this usually settles by the next day. Bruising can also appear at the site the blood was taken from.
There may be some discomfort or aching after treatment which can take a few days to calm down. Painkillers can be taken after the procedure if needed. We do not recommend taking aspirin or other anti-inflammatory medications prior to the PRP treatment (unless prescribed by a doctor for a medical indication) as this can increase the risk of bruising and bleeding. It is also not recommended to take vitamin supplements or certain other herbal remedies for a week before treatment.
Rarely infections may occur where the skin has been penetrated and cold sores may be precipitated in clients who are prone to these, medication may be prescribed to lessen this risk where required. A full medical history will be taken prior to any treatment being performed.
Although some people may notice some improvements to the skin as early as 3 weeks, the best results are not seen until 3 months and improvements will generally last up to 2 years. Repeat treatments are popular and sometimes 3 treatments may be required to obtain optimum results. Results will depend on many factors, including age, sex, alcohol and tobacco intake, lifestyle and general health.
