Wondering what all the excitement is about when it comes to PRP?
Platelet-Rich Plasma or PRP, is a great cosmetic injectable treatment for naturally rejuvenating the skin and repairing the signs of aging using your own growth factors, helping you to achieve total rejuvenation. It’s all you. Turn back the clock, naturally.
The PRP treatment involves reinjecting your own platelet rich plasma into your skin, delivering an abundance of growth factors that stimulate the body’s normal healing response, helping you to achieve a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles, tightening and smoothing your skin with improved tone and texture by stimulating collagen and elastin production. It’s an excellent choice for treatment of rosacea and acne. It’s also a treatment that has been used in hospital and sports medicine settings since the 1970’s as it’s highly effective in healing wounds and injuries.
PRP is extremely effective for treating difficult to treat areas, such as the delicate tissue under your eyes. Clients notice signs of aging here first, but treatment options are limited as lasers can’t be used, leaving surgical rejuvenation as a final choice.
PRP uses your own natural growth factors without any additional products. The treatment works by drawing a small sample of your blood, which is then spun in an Eclipse PRP® centrifuge for approximately 9 minutes to separate the plasma from the other blood particles. The platelet rich plasma is then reinjected back into the treatment areas to stimulate collagen and elastin production.
Because it uses your own serum, PRP is very safe and won’t be reacted to or rejected. Results from PRP take between three to four weeks to appear but are long-lasting, typically lasting 12 to 18 months after an initial series of three treatments.
