Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy (PRP)

What is Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy?

PRP therapy is a new form of regenerative medicine that utilises your own blood, where the platelet rich plasma component is extracted, concentrated and reintroduced to rejuvenate the skin.

Platelets are the key to the body’s ability to stop bleeding and repair damaged blood vessels and cells in the body. Platelets contain substances called growth factors that activate and rejuvenate cells in the body.

The concentrated platelets in PRP contain tremendous amounts of bioactive proteins, which include the growth factors PDGF and VEGF. These growth factors have been shown to initiate accelerated tissue repair, and according to experts have also been shown to have positive effects on skin rejuvenation. The growth factors, when released, promote tissue repair, angiogenesis (capillary formation), and collagen production.

This treatment is associated with no risk of allergy or infections as we are essentially using your own byproduct.

Benefits of PRP for Skin Rejuvenation
PRP is effective particularly for crepy skin under the eyes (fine wrinkles) that are difficult to treat by conventional rejuvenation therapy. It is also effective for treating wrinkles, acne scars, saggy skin, eye bags, and neck wrinkles.

“growth factors which work to stimulate collagen production, repair skin tissue and improve the skin’s ability to retain moisture.”

Figure 1 shows the mechanism of PRP when injected into the aged or sun-damaged skin, which typically has less collagen, less elasticity, reduced amount of hyaluronic acid, and a reduced ability to retain moisture. The platelet component will then release growth factors which work to stimulate collagen production, repair skin tissue and improve the skin’s ability to retain moisture.
