PRP is extremely effective for treating difficult to treat areas!

“PRP is extremely effective for treating difficult to treat areas!”

Wondering what all the fuss is about when it comes to PRP or platelet-rich plasma? PRP is an amazing medical injectable treatment for naturally rejuvenating the skin, repairing the signs of ageing and general wound healing.

The treatment involves drawing your own blood, spinning off the red blood cells in a centrifuge and reintroducing the platelet-rich plasma into your skin via injections or microneedling, delivering an abundance of growth factors that stimulate the body’s normal healing response, resulting in rejuvenation. 

Here are five reasons you should give it a try: 

1. IT IS REJUVENATING

PRP stimulates collagen and elastin production, effectively smoothing wrinkles and fine lines. It’s also a great treatment for improving overall skin texture and tone.

2. DELICATE AND DIFFICULT TO REACH AREAS CAN BE TREATED

PRP is extremely effective for treating difficult to treat areas, such as the delicate under-eye area where clients often notice signs of ageing first but where no laser can be used. 

3. IT’S NATURAL AND YOUR BODY RECOGNISES ITS OWN GROWTH FACTORS

PRP uses your own natural elements without the addition of any foreign products. 

4. IT’S SAFE AND COST-EFFECTIVE

Because it uses your own natural elements, PRP is very safe. It’s also not a new treatment. It’s long been recognised and since the 1970’s, used in general and sports medicine for its effective wound healing properties. PRP is often more affordable than other growth factor or rejuvenating products in the market since the product is harvested from you.

5. RESULTS ARE LONG-LASTING

Results from PRP take between six to twelve weeks to appear but are long-lasting, typically lasting 12 to 18 months after an initial series of four treatments.
