Platelet Rich Plasma

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is a procedure which involves taking a blood sample, concentrating the platelets from that sample, and reinjecting those concentrated platelets back into the body to assist healing and regenerate tissue.

These benefits occur because the platelets secrete a concentrated mix of growth factors. These growth factors stimulate repair cells. It is the same mechanism that heals a paper cut but magnified.

It can treat:

  • 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

PRP is also used in facial surgery and to repair 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 anti-inflammatory medication such as Nurofen or Voltaren.
