What Is PRP?
PRP is a treatment that works with the body’s natural capability to heal itself. In this technology, the platelets are separated out from the patient's blood. Platelets are rich in growth factors known to boost tissue regeneration, stimulate collagen production and to leave skin smoother, softer and more hydrated.
The effectiveness of PRP is due to a large number of natural growth factors and signalling proteins inside the concentrated platelets that promotes collagen stimulation and regeneration of the tissue. Originally PRP therapy was in demand due to its use in sports injuries in athletes. However, the benefits of these growth factors have since been realized in cosmetic procedures.
Why PRP Is Right For You?
Platelet-rich plasma therapy is an incredibly versatile treatment which harnesses your body’s own healing power through refined plasma, rich in powerful platelets. Most popular treatment areas for cosmetic purposes include face, neck and chest rejuvenation, along with hands, eyes and cheek augmentation. Additionally, PRP therapy can be used to treat hair loss, using the body’s own growth factors to stimulate hair follicles.
What To Expect With PRP
PRP can be applied with a micro-needling pen, mesotherapy gun or direct injections.
A small sample of blood is taken of the patient own blood. This means that not only is there no risk of transmissible infectious agents but also no risk of immune rejection.
The PRP is prepared while you are waiting for the anaesthetic cream to work.
The doctor will normally draw 10 to 20 millilitres of your blood, just like taking a standard blood test.
The blood sample is then prepared using a centrifuge, which spins the blood at high speeds, separating the platelets from the other blood components to create a preparation which is very highly concentrated with healing platelets.
The concentrated platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is usually injected into and around the treatment area, where it works to start the body’s natural healing processes.
Downtime is short, with usually some puffiness or blotchiness for a few days

LED Light Therapy
Clinically proven wavelengths recharge cells, energising them to heal quicker and rejuvenate faster, promoting healing from the inside out. The cell metabolism then builds collagen, increases elasticity, boosts circulation, accelerates tissue repair or kills bacteria.
