What is PRP?

Platelet-rich-Plasma (PRP) therapy is a completely natural method for skin rejuvenation and repair based on using your own plasma to inject in the treated areas to cause your skin to regenerate and to reverse the signs of ageing like pigmentation, lines, loose skin and also scarring.

This treatment is also known to be called “the vampire face lift” because it is based on harnessing the natural healing power of your own blood’s plasma. These are proteins that promote the healing of damaged skin, including healing of aged skin. Following the injection, the platelets release these proteins (referred to as growth factors), which in turn trigger surrounding cells to proliferate and repair damage; as a result, the skin’s volume increases and the skin becomes firmer, radiant and more rejuvenated.
