What is PRP?

PRP stands for Platelet-Rich Plasma and has been used for many years to help hair loss and skin rejuvenation. It is simply blood that contains more platelets than normal (as much as eight times). Using PRP in treatments enhances the body’s ability to repair, improves healing and speeds up downtime.

PRP treatment for the eyes and skin mainly involves three steps:

  1. The patient’s blood is drawn
  2. It is processed in a centrifuge machine to separate the plasma
  3. The plasma is then injected into the scalp

Typical human blood consists of plasma that contains growth factors which are required in the healing process and cell growth. When platelet-rich plasma blood is injected into damaged tissues, such as in the skin, it triggers the body to grow new healthy cells in that area, increasing blood flow plus stimulates of elastin, collagen and hyaluronic acid production.

All treatments are subject to a medical check as there are certain conditions especially those with impaired clotting that may not be suitable for this treatment.

Benefits of PRP

The procedure is non-surgical and minimally invasive with a quick recovery. After taking blood, a needle is used to inject the platelet-rich plasma into the treatment area.
Due to the nature of the treatment, using needles and no cutting of the treatment area, the risk of scarring is pretty much non-existent.
This is one of the safest treatments out there for treating hair loss. As it is non-invasive but mainly because you use your own body cells. This eliminates any risks associated due to allergic reactions and no risk of contamination.
The treatment involves drawing blood, which involves a needle. Numbing cream is applied before treatment to make it more comfortable.
Downtime is minimal. You may appear red and sunburnt on the first day, but after 24 hours this will all have settled.
The best benefit of PRP treatment is that we are treating the root cause of the problem. PRP stimulates the healing process to produce more collagen and elastin using your own body’s platelets.

Treatment is not only restricted to the face, PRP is used for hair rejuvenation and has been done in medicine for many years for injecting into joints and limbs. An extremely versatile, safe and effective treatment!
