PRP stands for ‘Platelet Rich Plasma’ and it is one of the emerging techniques available for skin rejuvenation. PRP therapy uses ‘platelet-rich plasma’, (your own platelets and plasma taken from a small sample of your blood), to stimulate collagen and improve the skin’s texture and elasticity. Platelets are the “sticky glue” that stop bleeding when you hurt yourself. Their other job is to promote wound healing and repair by attracting growth cells. PRP treatment produces a rejuvenating and tightening effect on your skin, giving it a healthy, youthful glow.

Post care : Compared to Botox there usually is a more prolonged “downtime”. Swelling and redness of the treated areas is common and may be dramatic – eg. around the eyes, although only for 24 hours. Some bruising is also expected (this can be covered with make-up) and it may take 1-2 weeks to clear completely. Results can be maintained with a single repeat treatment every 6-12 months.
