PRP Injections

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.

Procedure Information

In plastic surgery PRP provides a safe and natural approach to skin rejuvenation to:

  • Improve the skin’s tone & texture
  • Minimize signs of ageing
  • Reduces fine lines and wrinkles
  • Boost collagen production
  • Reducing dark under eye circles
  • Assisting acne scaring
  • Accelerating hair regrowth

Can be used on under eye, full face, neck, decolletage and hands.

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

  • activate skin rejuvenation by stimulating new collagen production
  • helping skin cells to repair themselves
  • stimulate the formation of new blood vessels in the skin.

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.

Procedure FAQs

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:

  • Bruising is common especially around the eye area lasting 5 – 10 days
  • Swelling from inflammation 2 – 3 days.
  • Mild discomfort 1 – 2 days

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.

Our suggested initial protocol is three to four treatments at one month intervals. Then a yearly maintenance or six monthly maintenance treatment especially for older patients.
