Increasingly popular, PRP (or Platelet Rich Plasma) treatments introduce your own blood product back into your skin or scalp to kickstart cell growth, promote healing and reduce inflammation.

One advantage of PRP is the security of using your body’s own cells – PRP treatments will never induce an allergic or adverse reaction, limiting the chance of side-effects and downtime.




PRP skin treatments have been nicknamed ‘vampire facials’ – but don’t be put off by the spin. The powerful anti-ageing effect of the PRP facial is attributed to an increased rate of cell production, mimicking the behaviour of young skin.

At the start of the procedure blood is drawn and put through a centrifuge to extract the PRP – which is then applied to the skin, with or without micro-needling. PRP is high in growth factors which initiate collagen synthesis and cell turnover – minimising pores and lines and improving texture.

What is PRP?


PRP stands for Platelet-rich Plasma, a treatment used in aesthetics to promote skin and hair health. It is obtained from a patient’s own blood and contains a high concentration of platelets, which are known to release growth factors that stimulate tissue healing and regeneration. In aesthetics, PRP is commonly used for skin rejuvenation, hair restoration, and wound healing. The procedure involves injecting the patient’s PRP into the treatment area to promote cell growth and improve the overall appearance of the skin or hair.

What does PRP involve?


PRP, or Platelet-rich Plasma, is a treatment used in aesthetics and medical procedures to promote tissue healing and regeneration. The procedure typically involves the following steps:


1. Blood draw: A small sample of the patient’s blood is drawn, usually from the arm.


2. Processing: The blood sample is placed in a centrifuge to separate the platelets from the red and white blood cells.


3. Preparation of PRP: The platelet-rich portion of the blood is collected and prepared for injection.


4. Injection: The PRP is then injected into the treatment area using a fine needle.


5. Aftercare: After the procedure, the patient may experience some discomfort, swelling, or redness, but these symptoms typically resolve on their own within a few days.


The length of the procedure and the number of injections required can vary, depending on the patient’s individual needs and the treatment area. In aesthetics, PRP is commonly used for skin rejuvenation, hair restoration, and wound healing. The number of treatments required for optimal results can vary, but most patients require several sessions spaced several weeks apart.
