Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy ( PRP)

Perfect for rejuvenation, skin brightening, reducing fine lines and wrinkles, hair loss, facial volume loss, scar healing, skin discolourations like age spots and it has prolonged effective results that can last up to 18 months.

What is plasma? Plasma is the largest part of our blood, making up to 55% of it! Blood is red right! But when plasma is separated from our blood it's a golden colour. It contains water, collagen boosting proteins like fibrin and other healing growth factors that stimulate collagen production. AMAZING!

How does it work? Like a simply blood test with your GP. (1) Some of your blood is drawn and then spun for 8-10 minutes in a special machine called a centrifuge. (2) The centrifuge extracts the protein fibrin and rich platelets from the rest of your blood. (3) This is then effortlessly re-injected back into the skin area or hair follicles to be treated.

Why PRP? (1) It's non-invasive (2) Treatment can be quick. Healing and regrowth factors are activated. When the body starts to develop natural collagen in the treated area, results are visible. This can take a few days - weeks and they get better over time. (3) The results can last up to 18 months if you follow your skin specialists advice. (4) It's natural - PRP uses your own blood and body so there are no chances of an adverse reaction.

Skin rejuvenation 1-3 sessions ( 1 month apart)

Bank your collagen!After the age of 26 we stop producing collagen naturally. Collagen and elastin supports and gives our skin elasticity. thus a more youthful appearance.

Collagen plays a key role in scars, such as those caused by acne and also dyschromia (pigmentation)issues in the skin such as sun spots (Solar Lentigines), Melasma and Vitiligo. Stimulating the fibroblasts in the skin to produce more collagen type 3 as seen in wound healing can help improve the appearance of the issues above.

The Skinpen Precision creates 1600 micro-channels per 60 seconds in your skin. This stimulates the 3 phases of the wound healing cascade:

Phase 1: Inflammation or Injury phase - 24 hours Phase 2: Tissue or cell proliferation - up to 4 days, collagen type 3 is formed. Phase 3: Skin remodelling - this can take up to 1 year. The type 3 collagen is converted
to type 1 collagen.
