Platelet-rich plasma consists of key cells and proteins which are extracted from a blood sample taken in the clinic just prior to treatment. The blood fraction we use – PRP – is known to accelerate normal healing pathways and when injected into the skin it will stimulate and restore it.

The body’s first response to soft tissue injuries is to deliver platelets to the area. These platelets are packed with growth and healing factors which work to repair cells. The same healing principle can be used for skin rejuvenation and healing in aesthetic treatments.

​Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) has been used in many medical procedures over the years.

It was originally developed for patients with burns, as the PRP can be used to encourage the skin’s regeneration. Other medical applications apart from wound healing, includes sports injuries and even joint surgery.

  • As your own blood components are used and nothing is added, it is completely natural and safe

  • It can be used on any area of skin – the main areas are eyes, face, neck, décolleté and hands

  • In particular, it can treat the delicate skin just above and below the eyes – these are areas that have traditionally been very difficult to address effectively

  • Platelet-rich plasma therapy can be used both for skin texture and volume, as well as treating hair loss.
