PRP Therapy

What Is It?

Amazing anti-aging and skin rejuvenation treatment favoured by the celebs. 

PRP is a natural skin regenerating treatment that offers an amazing range of benefits to the skin, it uses PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) which is the concentrated plasma taken from the blood to literally rejuvenate new and younger skin. 

PRP was first used cosmetically in 2007 on Harley Street as a skin treatment but has recently been made more popular and mainstream by celebrities such as Kim Kardashian and the media who have sensationalised the PRP treatment as the Vampire/Dracula treatment. 

When we cut ourselves it is the platelets that are found in the plasma that work to heal the wound, this plasma and the plasma (PRP) that we take from the client are high in proteins, growth factors, enzymes, stem cells, white blood cells and anti-oxidants. 

The treatment involves injecting PRP into lines, wrinkles and scars in order to cause controlled trauma to the tissues which activates the body’s natural healing process.

This produces a double whammy of healing by increasing cell renewal, stimulating collagen production and results in an exaggerated process of rejuvenation. 

The skin increases in thickness and volume and also improves in tone and texture making skin look younger and tighter. 

PRP treats both the dermis and the epidermis and can help with many skin issues such as fine lines, wrinkles, acne scarring/pock marks, pigmentation, large pores, scars and hair loss to name  a few. 

PRP can be used on any part of the body and is also a great treatment for stretchmarks. 

PRP is different from other skin therapy systems as it integrates the use of activated Plasma, Mesotherapy and Micro-needling making it a natural and unique treatment. 

The results last between 1.5-2 years and a course of up to three treatments is usually recommended to clients depending on their personal requirements.


What should I expect on the day?

When you arrive on the day Jay will apply numbing cream to the whole of the area to be treated, you will look at before and after pictures of Jays previous work. 

Jay will then take 2 vials of blood from your arm and spin it in a special machine called a centrifuge which will separate the blood leaving us with the plasma, the magic solution that Jay will be using in the treatment. 

Once the numbing cream has taken effect Jay will remove the cream section by section and cleanse the skin below with alcohol. 

Jay will begin the treatment injecting the plasma into the skin creating micro punctures in the skin in order to stimulate the bodies natural healing response and to create micro tunnels for the plasma to enter the skin. 

Jay will work down your face performing the treatment section by section.


What will I look like afterwards?

When you leave the clinic your face will be covered in the plasma as well as speckles of blood, the underlying skin will also be red due to the trauma caused. 

You leave the product on your face until the following morning and Jay will give you written aftercare instructions to take home. 

Jay advises that clients not have this treatment performed within a week of a big event or within 4 weeks of a sun holiday.
