Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy (PRP)
“PRP treatment leads to skin rejuvenation and slows down the aging process” – Nada Penido
Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy (PRP) Brisbane and Gold Coast
Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy is a natural therapy based on producing the healing powers of our body’s cell components. This has become a highly sought-after non-surgical procedure for skin rejuvenation and repair using autologous platelets and plasma to stimulate new cell growth and to reverse the signs of ageing like pigmentation, fine lines, skin laxity and scarring.
For a few years, it has been successfully used in numerous skin care applications, including alopecia, scar revision, acne scars, stretch marks, skin rejuvenation and dermal augmentation. For some indications, platelet rich plasma may be used in association with other treatment modalities, such as laser, radiofrequency or fat grafting, to improve clinical outcomes.
Down Time: 1-2 days
Treatment Time: 45 mins
What is this treatment indicated for
- Improvement of skin texture and tone
- Gradual increase in skin thickness
- Hair loss
- Acne scars
- Stretch marks
- Can be used for sensitive areas such as around the eyes
- May be combined with other treatment modalities such as laser, radiofrequency or fat grafting to stimulate biological effect. Platelet rich plasma should never be combined with other injectable treatments during the same session.
How is the treatment performed?
Platelet rich plasma is prepared by taking a small sample of the patient’s blood. The sample is then centrifuged inside a centrifuge machine. During centrifugation, the blood is separated into plasma, platelets, white blood cells and red blood cells by centrifugal force.
Platelet rich plasma is then easily collected from the upper part of the tube and can be injected either with a small needle or a cannula into the treatment site to promote healing and reverse the signs of ageing and matrix remodelling, resulting in skin stimulation. The whole plasma preparation process is simple and takes up to 10 minutes.
What to expect right after the PRP treatment
It is normal to experience some redness and swelling after the treatment. This response is the body’s natural reaction. You can also experience some mild bruising on the area treated.
When will you see the results
Typically, first results are visible 2 weeks after treatment and full results around 4 months after, as platelets stimulate the release of growth factors that assist in collagen regeneration. Increasing the collagen in the patient’s skin means over time, the skin will appear younger and fresher looking. Results will vary from one individual to the other.
How many sessions should you have?
It will depend on a case by case. However, because this treatment stimulates your own body’s collagen and elastin production, it is recommended at least 3-4 sessions to see optimal results.
PRP treatment (per session)
Under the Eye (uses 1 blood tube)
Scalp to treat hair loss (uses 3 blood tubes)
Acne scars (uses 2-3 blood tubes)
* Please note, treatment price is dependent on what areas will be treated and how many blood tubes will be required.
