PRP refers to platelet rich plasma - which is effectively a composition of blood - your own - that is injected into the areas you wish to plump up.

What is PRP?

PRP is not all that new - platelet rich plasma injections have been around for decades, helping athletes to heal sports related injuries (they're particularly helpful at healing tendon damage) but increasingly the benefits of PRP are being used in beauty.

The platelet rich plasma that is injected is a concentrated formula of your own platelets which makes it rich in growth factors. Such growth factors are needed to repair the body, and come in handy too when trying to fight the signs of ageing.

When going for a PRP treatment the practitioner will take some blood from you - imagine going for a beauty blood test - then that blood is processed using a mechanical device to seperate the platelets from the rest of the blood making the concentration of platelets three to four times the normal level.

The processing part of the treatment doesn’t take long - on average 10 minutes, as the different elements are divided - red blood cells, white blood cells, platelets , then the clear platelet rich plasma is ready to inject back in the places that need the most attention.

How does it work?

Through PRP Plasma platelets are activated in the body, they release healing proteins called growth factors. These growth factors have a range of responsibilities, a predominant feature of which is their ability to accelerate tissue repair and improve wound healing.

When PRP is injected into the skin, the injection entry point causes a small wound which activates the platelets and lets them get to work repairing the tissue in that area.

What about the results?

PRP will give your skin more natural radiance and a glow that will get people telling you how well you look.

Immediately post treatment you may have some redness and spotting but in terms of looking more youthful you'll have to be patient. It also makes sense that the younger you are the better the result as your body's natural healing processes are quicker.

Gradually your skin will have a subtle improvement that will give you a fresher look than before - without putting anything foreign into the skin.
