PRP 

Our skin rejuvenation treatment with amazing benefits, that restores the skins elasticity & generates a reproduction of skin cells & collagen, stimulates new hair growth on the scalp by using your very own platelets. 

PRP (protein rich plasma or platelet rich plasma) is the only remedy that enables a totally natural regeneration of tissues by using the body’s own ability to rejuvenate and increase volume.  This skin rejuvenation treatment is injected into the mid to deep dermis layer of the skin in a very similar technique to other dermal fillers.

Appealing to more patients who seek a natural method of slowing down the ageing process. This is a powerful anti- ageing formula- often referred to as the Vampire FaceLift. Our platelets contain growth factors that are responsible for Increasing collagen production, Tissue regeneration & rejuvenation & have are Non allergenic (as it is your own platelets).

PRP What the process involves

The treatment involves our Cosmetic Nurse Kellee will take a small amount of your blood, approx. 10-20ml which is then spun in our own centrifuge to separate the plasma & platelets & fibrins. The purified plasma is re-injected into the area being treated & then stimulates the production of new cells & collagen revitalisation. Your cells will rejuvenate themselves 2-3 weeks post treatment. Leading up to treatment Kellee will put you on ascorbic acid (vit C oral tablets) & encourage health to be at optimal level. The morning of treatment you will need to eat a full healthy breakfast & be very well hydrated, drinking at least 6 cups of water. 

 

Results

Results are not immediate & the swelling & fluid will subside within the first week. Throughout the course of the first 2-3 weeks, the platelets will stimulate growth factors which will assist in more collagen growth & you will begin to see the improvements in your skin tone & texture, fine lines, wrinkles and area’s of volume depletion. The first thing my clients notice is the improvement in skin elasticity. 

Hydration improvement is visible at 2-3 weeks & textual improvement is gradual over the following few months. 

Advanced wrinkling cannot be reversed & a minimal improvement is predictable in clients with tobacco & alcohol abuse. Stress & illness can effect your results. Severe scarring may not respond. 

We strongly encourage the use of cosmeceutical topical Vit B & C serum & a reservatrol ointment whilst having treatments. And oral ascorbic Acid (Vit C).

Side effects are minimal; some people experience swelling, bruising and redness for 12-24 hours post treatment.

PRP for Hair loss

PRP injections into the scalp are used to stimulate the bulb cells at the base of the hair & surrounding microcirculation. This treatment enhances the vitality, colour & brightness of the hair and healthy patients with no underlying health issues see their hair loss slowed & growth reactivated.

PRP with micro-needling

To enhance your results & reverse the ageing process this treatment is available in conjunction with CIT.

Skin Needling / Dermapen or Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT) is an advanced natural treatment to improve your skin texture, smooth wrinkles, fine lines & soften scars. It is suitable for all skin types and all areas of the face, neck, décolletage, abdomen and hands. Skin needling is performed with a surgical grade instrument with stainless steel micro needles ranging from 0.5mm to 3mm in length, performed by our Medical professional & Cosmetic Registered Nurse Kellee.  Scaring is treated with needles up to 2-3mm.

The treatment promotes the natural reproduction of collagen and elastin, making the skin feel smoother and tighter. Creating only microscopic punctures in the epidermis, skin needling is minimally invasive with little damage to the epidermis which means the collagen production is significantly quicker than some other more aggressive treatments.

Our nurse will take your blood & then extract the plasma from this & a mask of your own bodies growth factors and platelets are applied to the treatment area. These two treatments combined give amazing anti ageing results.
