How does PRP work?
A small sample of blood is taken from your arm, exactly like having a routine blood test at your doctors. The blood is then centrifuged ( a machine which spins and separates the red blood cells from the plasma) ten minutes later the PRP has been separated from the whole blood and is ready for use.The concentrated plasma contains key components of tissue repair required for regeneration and is injected into the skin to stimulate the formation of new collagen and elastin.
The results develop over a period of months, improving skin tone and elasticity. Generally three sessions, 3-8 weeks apart are advised to achieve optimum results and maintenance recommended every 6-12 moths for optimal lasting results.
What is the difference between PRP and Dermal fillers?
Dermal filler is a synthetic material designed to give volume and fill up lines and wrinkles in a specific area. PRP is self sourced and actively helps your skin to repair itself by improving skin complexion and restoring its natural glow.
