PRP stands for Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy and involves blood being taken from the patient’s body (in the same way as in a blood test) then put in a machine that separates the blood cells, serum and platelets which are then injected directly back into the face . A topical anaesthetic cream is applied before hand to make the treatment more comfortable. This popular treatment is often referred to as The Vampire Facial as it involves taking a blood sample.

Platelets release growth factors that help the body repair itself by stimulating cells to regenerate new tissue so as well as improving the skin tone the treatment also promotes healthy skin growth and collagen production so skin appears plumper and more vibrant.

This treatment is recommended for anyone who prefers a more natural approach to anti-ageing treatments. PRP Therapy is a completely safe and natural treatment and is highly effective at improving the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, sun damage and dull, worn-out looking skin.

PRP can also be used to help restore thinning hair.

PRP is popular for patients that are interested in rejuvenation but don’t really wish to go down the route of botox of dermal fillers. It is completely natural treatment as it is using your own plasma.

Some minimal swelling and bruising may be experienced for 12-24 hours following treatment but very little down is required for this treatment and because your own plasma is used there is minimal risk of side effects. Usually 2-3 treatments are recommended with a four week gap between each treatment. renaissancelogo.jpg
