Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy was first used in medicine in 1987 and is today utilised in many areas including; sports medicine, orthopaedics, cosmetics, faciomaxillary and urology. In aesthetic enhancement and anti-aging medicine, it is used to improve skin tone, texture and elasticity. Typically used to treat the crepey skin directly beneath the eyes, where we are limited with our use of Anti-Wrinkle and Dermal Filler treatments. It can also rejuvenate the décolletage, neck, cheeks, midface, back of hands, knees, thighs, arms and post baby stomach and breasts and encourages the repair of wounds and burns.
We are proud users of TGA approved Regen Lab’s PRP system.
How Does PRP Work?
PRP therapy involves extracting a small blood sample from your body (usually inner elbow) and spinning it in a centrifuge to separate your plasma and red cells. PRP is then injected back into the treatment area via a needle or the Dermapen. Your platelets release growth factors that assist the human body to repair itself by stimulating cells to regenerate new tissue. This initiates an accelerated healing process and improves your skin quality for up to 12 months.
Benefits of PRP
PRP therapy acts as both a natural Dermal Filler and softener, improving the texture and appearance of your skin. As the skin rejuvenates, your natural beauty is enhanced.
