Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
A skin treatment which involves taking a sample of your blood, separating the plasma and then reinjecting the concentrated platelets back into your skin where required to regenerate aged and sun damaged areas. This treatment can also help with scar repair.
Platelet rich plasma (PRP) is harvested from your own blood by collecting a small volume of your blood and spinning it down to separate the red blood cells from the platelet cells.
This resulting PRP is then introduced back under the skin by a series of tiny injections .PRP had been used already for a number of years in surgery and sports injuries due to its skin healing properties .
PRP treatment produces a rejuvination and tightening effect on your skin giving it a healthy youthful glow .
It's ideal for :
Fine lines and wrinkles
Dull dry skin
Hair growth stimulation in those with thinning hair.
Improvement in acne scarring
Improving the appearance of scars
It's used in the following areas:
Full face rejuvination
Eye area (upper and lower eyelids)
Backs of hands
Other body areas
The process takes about an hour and the area to be treated is numbed with a topical anaesthetic cream.
You can expect to have some redness,swelling and bruising which subsides quickly over the following 4 to 7 days, so minimal "down time"
Initial treatment is is one treatment per month for 3 to 4 months then repeat treatments either 6 or 12 monthly depending on your skin and results.
As it's made of your own blood products there is no risk of allergy,rejection or long term side effects
Treatment results vary but once tissue has been Regenerated and remodeled the benefit can be permanent however as we continue to age the problem areas eventually reappear over 9 to 18 months after a single treatment so touch up treatments will maintain the results.
The liquid Facelift
The 8 point lift is a specialised lifting and volumising technique also referred to as the "non surgical facelift" or "liquid facelift ".
It uses dermal fillers to enhance and discreetly lift the face for a total rejuvenating effect .
Who is it for? On its own or combined with Botox the 8 point lift is ideal for patients who have noticed the early signs of ageing but for whom it's too soon for face left surgery if that is what they desire. Read More...
Not all points may need injecting , it is a bespoke treatment that depends on
an individual's features . It takes extensive training and an artistic eye .
Essentially the treatment is a reversal of the pull of gravity because if you reinflate specific points of the face you get the effect of a lift .. Like a hammock .. If its sagging you tighten the supports ....
Results last around 18 months and there are other skin benefits too .. fillers increase the skin's volume over time and tighten it .
The fillers are made of synthesised hylauronic acid , a naturally occurring substance in the skin that decreases as we age.
Over time as the filler also stimulates regeneration of your own natural collagen , the quality of the skin continues to be significantly improved .
Results generally last 12 to 18 months.
