Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) injections are one of the most sought after natural therapies to rejuvenate the skin and reverse the ageing process. PRP, contains concentrated platelets, rich in essential growth factors that stimulate tissue repair and collagen formation. PRP is extremely beneficial when waging war on wrinkles and damaged skin because it’s a rejuvenation method that uses your own body’s cells to repair itself.

Your blood is comprised of approximately 93% red blood cells (RBC), 1% white blood cells (WBC), 6% platelets, and plasma. When platelets are activated in the body, these highly specialised sponge-like molecules, release healing proteins called growth factors. These growth factors have a range of responsibilities, a predominant feature of which is their ability to accelerate tissue repair and improve wound healing. The mechanism for the benefit of platelet rich plasma, specifically for skin rejuvenation, lies in concentrating the platelets to levels of 3 to 4 times the normal platelet concentration level and injecting this highly concentrated, Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) into the areas requiring repair and rejuvenation.

PRP has a number of roles and responsibilities, aside from assisting with blood clotting; platelets also release growth factors that assist the human body to repair itself by stimulating cells to regenerate new tissue. Today, Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is produced in-clinic using sophisticated equipment in a comfortable, clinically safe environment. The doctor will extract a small volume of your blood and then process your blood and concentrate the platelets to form PRP, which is then injected to areas where skin rejuvenation is required. Treatment benefits can include, plumper, firmer looking skin, wrinkle reduction, improved scar appearance and when used ono the scalp, regenerate hair growth. Patients benefit from using their own concentrated tissue growth factors to optimise tissue repair and regeneration at the treatment site. Affects are longer-term than other anti-ageing treatments and there is little downtime. Expect some redness and soreness at treatment site for 24-72 hours and avoid astringent skincare or products on the treatment area, extreme heat or direct sun for 72 hours.

Frequently Asked Questions

How does it work?

A sample of your own blood is placed in a highly specialised, state of the art system: this system will extract the PRP from the rest of the blood in a safe, sterile manner. This is then injected into the areas that require tissue remodelling and rejuvenation.

Is PRP safe?

PRP is derived from your own blood and so you are using your own booster cells to repair and improve your skin quality and texture with profound effects on the appearance of the skin, making it much tighter, and brighter with fewer wrinkles.

Which areas can be treated with PRP?

You can use PRP to target the skin in any area but at our clinic we have found that its most effective when used to treat:

  • Wrinkled skin on the neck and décolletage
  • Ageing of the hands
  • Lines and puffiness around the eyes
  • Rejuvenation of lips
  • Acne scars
  • Stretch marks
  • Hair loss – Significant results for hair restoration
  • Scar revision stretch marks
Is there any discomfort during PRP?

Each patient has a different pain threshold. Dr. Saleki will use a topical anaesthetic to ease your comfort during the PRP treatment – most clients find this treatment to be pain free.

How long will the treatment last?

The processing of your PRP will take 20 minutes and the procedure will take on average 45 -60 minutes, depending on the area been treated.

What is the downtime of PRP?

PRP injections may bring about the possibility of developing a tiny bruise, especially on the needle’s entry point. Some patients may also experience slight swelling.

The absorption with PRP is achieved in as little as 24 hours. With all of these things considered, it can be said that PRP injection downtime can range anywhere from 1-3 days.

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.

What should I avoid before and after the treatment?

We often discourage consumption of alcohol 12 hours before and after your treatment. Smoking should be avoided 6 hours before and after your treatment. Both these factors affect the likelihood of you bruising.

Other things to avoid are hot showers, saunas as well as exercise for 24 hours and avoid sunbathing or sunbeds for up to 7 days.

I came to this clinic and had fox eyes and lip filler done. 3 months later i came back because i loved my results so much the first time i wanted a touch up while keeping things looking as natural as possible.. Dr. Mahsa is an artist. I asked for natural Lips and although we used enough filler, they look so amazing. I couldnt be happier! As for the fox eyes I dont think there is a more experienced doctor performing these treatments. Could'nt recommend enough! Thank you for giving me such a confidence boost SAS. See you again next year ;)
