What is PRP Facial?
Put simply, the PRP facial is an anti-aging procedure that uses your own blood to help promote the healthy activity of your skin cells. Sounds simple!
We combine PRP with Micro-needling to enhance the results with your own platelet-rich plasma – derived from the serum portion of the blood. These platelets contain growth factors which help to stimulate rapid cell replenishment and rejuvenation of healthy cells.
While dermatologists have only recently started using PRP facials, orthopaedic doctors have injected PRP to heal injured joints such as ankles, knees and elbows for many years. It’s a tried and tested medical procedure with a long history of excellent results.

PRP for Hair Restoration
If you’ve experienced significant hair loss, PRP can be of help in a few ways. PRP treatments can promote the health of shrinking hair follicles, lead to a slowing down of hair loss. In some cases, you can even have new hair growth after effective PRP treatment.
Individuals who have undergone a hair transplant can use PRP to speed up the transplanted hair follicle’s growth cycle. PRP treatments for hair restoration can be applied to the scalp in different ways. It’s possible to commence a brief micro-needling procedure and then apply PRP topically. The PRP can also be injected directly, depending on the individual’s extent of hair loss.
PRP Under Eye Rejuvenations
While it may sound a little scary, PRP eye rejuvenation is essentially tricking your skin into thinking that there is an injury at the site of injection or application and so the platelets help the skin create newer, tougher cells. It’s these cells that are responsible for the more youthful appearance that PRP promises.
Because of how the platelets work on your skin, you will see results. Your skin will be stronger, fresher and mostly free of wrinkles (including those stubborn crow’s feet). This procedure can also help you with any troublesome acne scars and aging signs in general.
