Platelet Rich Plasma
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is a procedure which involves taking a blood sample, concentrating the platelets from that sample, and re-injecting those concentrated platelets back into the body to assist with healing and regeneration of tissue.
These benefits occur because the platelets secrete a concentrated mix of growth factors. These growth factors are available to assist with repairing cells. It is the same mechanism that heals a paper cut but magnified.
It can used for:
- Jaw Line and lower face
- Acne scarring
- Neck crinkling
- Cheeks and Mid Face volume loss
- Regrowth of areas of hair loss
- Chest and Decolletage
- Back of hands and arms
- Crinkling skin around the eyes
Platelet Rich Plasma is also used in facial surgery and to assist with the repair of muscle injuries. In fact PRP is banned in drug tested sport as a performance enhancing drug.
PRP is not for everyone. It cannot be used by smokers, those with platelet abnormalities, or anyone on aspirin or antiinflammatory medication such as nurofen or voltaren.
We use the Regen PRP system and the price for a treatment using two Regen PRP tubes is $650.
A full discussion of the risks and benefits is available by free consultation.
