Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is a revolutionary treatment that has taken the field of dermatology by storm. The procedure involves taking a small amount of blood, similar to a routine test, and separating it into its key components through a two-step centrifugation process. This isolates the plasma, a yellow fluid packed with platelets and essential growth factors, which is then gently injected back into the skin via an ultra-fine needle.

Scientific studies have shown that PRP injections provide the skin with essential nutrients that encourage renewal and rejuvenation. In fact, just one session can lead to significant improvements, such as enhanced texture, reduced appearance of acne scars, and even the smoothing of fine lines and wrinkles.

In addition, PRP has been found to improve the appearance of deep tear troughs under the eyes and to assist with regenerating skin in areas prone to laxity, such as the face, neck, hands, abdomen, and knees.

The procedure typically lasts about 40 minutes, with minimal bruising thanks to the platelets’ ability to reduce bleeding. It is important to note that PRP requires multiple sessions to achieve optimal results, with treatments recommended every three to six months, depending on individual needs.

It is crucial to seek out a qualified and experienced dermatologist to administer your PRP treatment, as handling blood carries inherent risks and requires specialized knowledge. As such, all PRP injections should only be performed in a proper medical setting, with the assistance of a certified professional.

Preparing for your PRP treatment involves avoiding certain medications, such as aspirin and anti-inflammatories, for at least a week prior to your appointment. You should also avoid alcohol , ginger, turmeric and garlic for three days before your session.

In conclusion, PRP is a safe and highly effective treatment for various dermatological concerns, from skin laxity to acne scarring . Book a consultation with our dermatologists today to discover how PRP can help you achieve the healthy, revitalized skin of your dreams.
