What is PRP Skin Treatment?
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) skin treatment is a procedure involving drawing the patient's own blood to separate out the protein and growth-factor-rich plasma in which can be used on the facial skin for regenerative, anti-inflammatory and rejuvenating purposes.
PRP skin treatment is suitable for all ages, be it young teenagers with troubled skin or acne scarring to the patients with aging skin looking for effective natural skin healing and rejuvenation.
PRP stimulates the production of new collagen and elastin. The result is a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles, minimising the appearance of scarring, and evening the overall tone and texture of the skin.
How It Works
PRP Skin Treatment is a procedure focused on extracting Platelet Rich Plasma ingredient which is rich with natural "Growth Factors" from patients' own blood, treating and preparing for PRP to be injected to specific areas on the skin to stimulate collagen production, hence reparation of the specific skin area would be carried out for multiple skin problems/conditions.
At our affiliated clinic, the procedure will be carried out by either injection or micro-needling. Treatment results can last between 12 to 18 months after the first 3 treatment sessions (2 vials, total 16 ml). There are 2 specific types of treatment available: rejuvenation and volumization. Combining PRP therapy with a facial filler will be recommended for immediate results.
