Platelet-rich plasma, or PRP, is a substance that has a wide range of applications in plastic surgery and in medicine in general. Plasma is a component of blood that contains special “factors,” or proteins, that help blood to clot. It also contains proteins that support cell growth.
PRP when injected stimulates the body to grow new, healthy cells and promote healing and rejuvenation.
PRP facials are a groundbreaking solution for aging or damaged skin & known as platelet-rich plasma skin rejuvenation or PRP facial rejuvenation. It’s basically an anti-aging skin treatment that leaves skin looking younger, smoother, and overall healthier.
Our blood is made of plasma, red and white blood cells, and platelets. These platelets help our blood clot and produce growth factor proteins that are essential for healing. PRP facial rejuvenation uses platelets from your own blood to help heal and renew your skin. Growth factors are essential in our skin to keep it looking plump & full of elastin.
To start this process, a medical professional will draw a small vial of blood from you, and it will be placed in a centrifuge that separates the platelet-rich plasma (PRP) from the blood. This concentrates the platelet count to many times higher than usual, and the result is amazing. From there, it can be used to address skin complaints.

How Long Do The Results Of PRP Facial Last?
Because cosmetic treatments are dependent on the overall skin quality of each patient will influence the longevity of your results. At the very least, you should experience results, especially after your first treatment, for around 6 to 12 months.
For the longest-lasting results, then you should work with our nurse to create a long-term skin care plan that includes multiple PRP facial treatments. Your lifestyle, age, genetics, and other factors will also play into how good your results are and how long they’ll last.
When you book a consultation at Mode Medispa, we’ll help you understand specifically what you’ll need to do to maintain your results.
How Often Should I Get Prp Face Treatments?

The first step involves taking a sample of blood from the arm – this is similar to having a normal blood test.
The blood collected is then placed in a medical grade centrifuge. This process separates the red blood cells from the gold plasma – which contains a rich concentration of platelets. These contain antibodies, enzymes and proteins including growth factors. It is these products within PRP that
After numbing cream is applied to the designated area the patients PRP (after careful preparation mentioned above) is injected back into the skin with very fine needles. The whole procedure takes approximately 45 mins to 1 hour.
All our equipment and vials are TGA approved.
Fortunately because PRP is sourced from the patient’s own blood – this reduces the risks for an allergic reaction that can occur from injecting other medications. However there can be some risks from the injection itself such as:
Because PRP injections are intended to promote healing or growth, you may not notice an immediate difference after receiving the injections.
Some results may be visible after second treatment while others can take up the 3 to 6 months before seeing results.
