PRP Injection (Platelet Rich Plasma)

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP injection) is also called Autologous Cellular Regeneration (ACR).

PRP is a completely natural approach to skin rejuvenation using your body’s own plasma and cells – your body’s natural potential to rejuvenate, revitalise and regenerate.

Imagine regenerating your skin with your own body’s chemistry and cells – no drugs, no artificial products. PRP can be used on areas of your face and body where the skin is thinning or sagging, where there are age spots, wrinkling and pigmentation.

A quantity of your own blood is collected and passed through a special process. This separates plasma containing a high concentration of blood platelets that are particularly rich in their ability to heal and restore. The plasma is then injected into the areas to be treated.

Because PRP regenerates and rejuvenates your skin and tissues using your own cells, it is an excellent therapy to use as a component of the increasingly popular Combination Therapy. In this way, it can strengthen the results of other anti-ageing treatments such as Anti Wrinkle and Dermal Filler injections to help restore lost facial volume and skin health.

Information about PRP injection (Platelet Rich Plasma)

The Procedure
For the separation of platelet-rich plasma (PRP), a dedicated kit is used. The use of a specific filter and a centrifuge achieves a high platelet recovery rate of 97% or more and allows preparation of plasma with a high concentration of growth factor inducing platelets.

Expectations & FAQs

Results are visible at 3 weeks and improve gradually over ensuing months with improvement in texture and tone.

Cosmeceuticals (biologically active skin care) and Light therapies can enhance the results.

Advanced wrinkling cannot be reversed and a minimal improvement is predictable in persons with drug, alcohol and tobacco usage. Severe scarring may not respond.

Some mild bruising may occur. These signs may take 2-3 days to vanish. The corners of the mouth tend to bruise a little more. Transient redness, swelling, itching or discomfort may occur. In the case of a lip augmentation, the swelling can be considerable for a few days.

Occasionally some patients may notice some discoloration at the injection site. Typically, resolution is spontaneous, within one or two days of injection into the skin, and within a week after lip augmentation.
