Skin Rejuvenation

Platelets are the regenerative power house cells contained in our blood, that stimulate wound healing and tissue regeneration. Blood is made up of red blood cells, white blood cells, platelets, and plasma. When platelets are activated in the body they release healing proteins called growth factors.

Skin rejuvenation using  PRP rejuvenate

PRP Skin Rejuvenation Therapy is a natural approach to improving the condition of your skin, and you are using your own unique tissue growth factors and healing properties to revitalise the skin by improving blood supply and stimulating collagen formation, the results of which improves and increases over time with evidence suggesting that the results of PRP Skin Rejuvenation Therapy lasts longer than chemical treatments.

Growth factors create
 an accumulative result, which assists the body to repair itself by regenerating new tissue, improving blood supply and wound healing, all of which are important factors in regenerative therapies.

How does PRP rejuvenate the skin and tissue?

cPRP contains high levels of platelets and when injected into skin tissue, growth factors are released, which are vital to tissue healing and repair. Tissue that is aged and damaged usually has poor texture, wrinkles, shows signs of sagging and an uneven tone. PRP treatments are often given names for example we offer the Angel™ lift and there are other names such as the Vampire Face lift.

These treatments are often used in conjunction with treatments such as Dermal Fillers to directly address the texture and health of collagen tissue.
Skin texture will improve as new tissue cells grow, and visible results are seen 3-6 weeks after treatment and continue for up to 12 -18 months.
