WHAT IS PRP?
PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) is a natural product created from our own body. It is a new alternative medical aesthetic treatment that enhances the body’s natural healing capacity.
PRP is a relatively simple process. A patient’s own blood is placed into a centrifuge that rotates at high speed separating red and white blood cells from the platelets and the plasma. Next the physician takes the Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)portion of the blood and injects it directly into the patient’s areas of concern and the treatment is complete.
PRP TREATMENT IS IDEAL FOR
- Crepe-like skin
- Eye Area
- Fine lines and Wrinkles
- Textural Improvement

WHEN WILL I SEE RESULTS?
The full collagen regeneration takes 6 months. Improvement of skin texture and tone are noticeable within 3 weeks.
PRP SIDE EFFECTS
Minimal swelling, bruising and redness for the first 24 hours are normal. A bruise may develop from needle injection site and should dissolve in a week’s time. Other side effects that could occur due to the needle injection are: pain, infection, and bruising. Avoid aspirin for 10 days prior to treatment, anti-inflammatory medication should be avoided as well for the first 5 days to minimize bruising.
