PLATELET RICH PLASMA (PRP)
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) contains high concentrations of platelets. These cells stimulate the release of growth factors which result in tissues’ rapid healing and cellular repair. Tissue that is aged and damaged usually reflects poor texture, wrinkles, sagging and an uneven skin tone. Patients that want a natural appearance are opting for PRP as an effective natural treatment to boost tissue and collagen stimulation.

How many treatments will I need?
Everyone is different, therefore it depends on the individual skin type and area being treated.
However, you can have PRP treatments every 2-3 weeks or so. By stacking this needling in a series of 2-3 weeks, there is an additive effect in collagen production and contraction. Usually after 8-12 weeks, the real result is seen, and it is recommended that you have a single maintenance session every 4- 5 months.
Can I have PRP if I get Botox and Fillers?
Yes, it is a good combination to choose. PRP two weeks after Botox or fillers is ideal, as the collagen production of PRP enhances the healing of wrinkled lines and the new collagen production and remodelling of collagen for constant improvement of skin texture and appearance.
