Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)

Stimulating collagen production & skin rejuvenation

Skin Rejuvenation and Hair Restoration

PRP, or platelet-rich plasma, has been in use for years to help wounds heal faster by encouraging the growth of new tissue. When injected into the skin for cosmetic purposes, PRP helps to promote collagen production and kick-starts the skin’s regenerative capabilities. Growth factors in the plasma increase collagen and elastin production, stem cell proliferation and vascular formation. This produces a plumping and tightening effect on the treated area. The skin is rejuvenated and rehydrated and wrinkles are reduced resulting in a healthy, regenerated glowing complexion that looks smoother and more youthful.

What is PRP Treatment Good For?

PRP, or Platelet-Rich Plasma, has gained popularity due to its potential to address various skin concerns and promote tissue regeneration. 

PRP Benefits

Here's how PRP can be beneficial to an array of common skin concerns:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles: PRP contains growth factors that stimulate collagen production, helping to improve skin texture and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

  • Ageing & sagging skin: By promoting collagen and elastin production, PRP can help improve skin firmness and elasticity, addressing the signs of ageing and sagging skin.

  • Upper & Lower Eye Area: PRP can be used to rejuvenate the delicate skin around the eyes, reducing fine lines, wrinkles, and puffiness.

  • Dark circles: PRP may help improve the appearance of dark circles by stimulating collagen production and enhancing skin thickness and improving texture.

  • Acne scars and stretch marks: PRP can aid in the repair of damaged skin tissue by promoting collagen synthesis, potentially reducing the appearance of acne scars and stretch marks.

PRP Body Treatments

  • Neck & Décolletage: PRP treatments can extend beyond the face to rejuvenate the skin on the neck and décolletage, improving texture and firmness.

  • Hand rejuvenation: PRP injections can help revitalise the thin skin on the back of the hands, reducing the crepey appearance improving the fine lines and wrinkles.

  • Thinning Hair: PRP has shown promise in promoting hair growth by stimulating the hair follicles and increasing blood flow to the scalp, which can help with conditions such as androgenetic alopecia (male/female pattern hair loss/thinning).

PRP treatments are generally considered safe and minimally invasive, making them a versatile option for addressing a range of skin and hair concerns. However, individual results may vary, and it's essential to consult with our qualified team to determine if PRP is suitable for your specific needs.

Platelet Rich Plasma Injection: How Does it Work?

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy harnesses the body's natural healing mechanisms to promote tissue regeneration and rejuvenation. Here's a more detailed explanation of how PRP injections work:

Blood Extraction: The process begins with a small blood sample taken from the patient, typically from the arm. This sample is collected in a vial, similar to a routine blood draw.

Centrifugation: The collected blood sample is then placed in a centrifuge, a machine that spins rapidly to separate its components based on density. During centrifugation, the red blood cells, white blood cells, platelets, and plasma separate into distinct layers.

Isolation of Platelets and Growth Factors: After centrifugation, the platelet-rich plasma layer is carefully extracted from the vial. Platelets are tiny blood cells crucial for clot formation and contain growth factors, which play a key role in tissue repair and regeneration.

Injection: Once isolated, the PRP solution is prepared for injection. The PRP solution is then injected into the target area, such as the face for skin rejuvenation or the scalp for hair restoration. The injections are typically administered using fine needles and may be delivered at multiple sites to ensure comprehensive coverage.

Stimulation of Healing: Once injected, the growth factors and other bioactive molecules within the PRP initiate a cascade of biological processes. These processes include cell proliferation, collagen synthesis, and angiogenesis (the formation of new blood vessels), which collectively promote tissue repair and regeneration. These growth factors also stimulate new hair growth when injected into the scalp.

Results and Follow-Up: Over time, patients may notice improvements in the treated area, such as smoother skin texture, reduced wrinkles, or enhanced hair growth. Depending on the specific treatment plan, multiple PRP sessions may be recommended to achieve optimal results.

PRP Injections for Hair Loss

Cellenis® PRP therapy accelerates the growth of the hair follicles by stimulating the stem cells and other cells in the micro environment of the hair follicle to increase the production of collagen, nutrients, and antioxidants, and by promoting neovascularization to increase blood supply, leading to denser and stronger hair.

PRP is also commonly used in hair transplant treatments to promote and encourage tissue repair. The treatment helps to preserve, accelerate and enhance the hair follicles pre-and post-transplant and to produce more robust hair growth.

  • Increases hair quality, volume,  density and fullness
  • Naturally stimulates hair growth
  • Increases and strengthens existing hair
  • Decreases hair loss
  • Can be used in conjunction with alternative therapies and medications for hair loss
