Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy
Are you noticing dark circles and puffiness under your eyes?
Are you seeing fine lines and sagging around your mouth, cheeks, and eyes?
Is your skin tone just not as bright, healthy, and firm as it used to be?
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy
PRP Therapy is a non-surgical cosmetic treatment – popular with celebrities – that dramatically improves skin tone and texture for a radiant complexion.
PRP refers to platelet rich plasma – which is effectively a composition of blood – your own – that is injected into the areas you wish to plump up.
The platelet rich plasma that is injected is a concentrated formula of your own platelets which makes it rich in growth factors. These growth factors are needed to repair the body, and aid when trying to fight the signs of aging.
PRP Therapy’s rejuvenating effects addresses a wide range of skin concerns.
Reduce fine lines and wrinkles
- Smooth crow’s feet
- Lighten dark circles under the eyes
- Improve skin elasticity
- Diminish lip lines
- Improve skin tone and texture
- Minimize pores
- Even out skin tone
- Plump a sagging jawline
- Give volume to the cheeks
- Reduce the appearance of acne scars
- Minimize lines and depressions around the mouth and nose
What is PRP ?
PRP is a natural product created from your own body. A small amount of blood is drawn from you and placed in a sterile tube that is spun down in a centrifuge to separate the different components of the blood. Red and white blood cells are divided from the platelets and the plasma (the clear fluid). This plasma now contains a higher than normal number of platelets and is called platelet rich plasma, or PRP.
Platelets Rejuvenate Skin
Platelets are the cells in the blood that help tissue to heal and grow new cells. The PRP, injected into specific areas of the skin, act as a matrix that promotes your own collagen to grow, regenerates tissue, and thus acts as to naturally smooth and tighten the skin. In this way, PRP softens wrinkles and creating smoother skin texture and tone.

The treatment requires a minimal amount of blood to be drawn from your arm.
The blood taken is then processed to separate the platelets — thus making the concentration of platelets three to four times the normal level.
The processing part of the treatment takes on average 20 minutes, as the different elements are divided – red blood cells, white blood cells, platelets etc, then the clear platelet rich plasma is ready. This formula of PRP is then used in your treatment and injected in the places that need the most attention.
Reinjecting the blood that is processed rich with platelets, then increases the levels of platelets far beyond their normal concentration to boost the skin’s ability to rejuvenate.
What about the results?
PRP will give your skin more natural radiance and a glow that will get people telling you how well you look.
It’s a much more natural approach to anti-aging – both for the fact you’re using your body’s own material and for the fact the results develop over time.
- Minimal downtime
- Significantly reduced risk of allergic reactions
- Long lasting results
- Some results are immediately noticeable
- Effects continue to improve over several weeks
The goal of PRP skin rejuvenation therapy is to improve skin tone and texture, tighten skin, soften lines and pores. Results begin to show 3-4 weeks after the treatment session and continue to improve with time. Three treatment sessions are generally recommended, spaced 1-2 months apart, to achieve the best outcome.
Immediately post treatment you may have some redness and spotting but in terms of looking more youthful you’ll have to be patient. Gradually your skin will have a subtle improvement that will give you a fresher look than before – without putting anything foreign into the skin. PRP therapy has become one of the most highly sought anti-aging treatments available and the results can be dramatic.
