Platelet Rich Plasma or PRP uses your own natural properties of your blood releasing growth factors into the surrounding tissues to stimulate increasing blood supply, collagen and elastin products. Producing a natural younger, healthier fresher skin. Were simply using what mother nature provided us with: your own healthy cells re-injected back into the target area to produce new cells.
Commonly known as the vampire lift the autologous PRP therapy uses a small sample of your own blood to harvest the platelet rich plasma. Whilst you wait your blood sample is spun in a centrifuge to collect the platelet rich plasma. This will be activated and re-injected into the target areas.
The therapy is ideal to plump skin, smooth out fine lines and wrinkles, and give an overall more fresh and glowing anti-ageing appearance.

A protocol of 3 to 5 sessions is required for optimal results. The treatment can be used as a stand alone treatment this often preferred by patients who desire only natural treatment and wish to avoid botox or fillers. However, the results can be further optimised when PRP is combined with any of our other treatments, such as Obagi® Nu-Derm and Dermaroller.
A slight reddening and swelling of the injection site will be temporarily visible. You will leave a thin mask for 24 hours. There may be some bruising which can be covered up the next day with makeup.
An anaesthetic cream will be applied to the treatment areas, which reduce the discomfort of the injections.
The protocol is for 3 sessions 4 weeks apart with repeat sessions 6 to 12 months apart. Most people will see a result after the 2nd session and skin changes will continue even after 6 months.
Prices vary from £250 – £850 per treatment depending on the treatment area and type of treatment used. A free consultation is the only way to give a price guide.
