What is PRP?
PRP stands for plasma rich protein. You may opt to treat your face, décolletage, or thinning hair.
Plasma is a component found in your blood that contains proteins. These support cell growth. PRP is a treatment that extracts the plasma from the blood and then concentrates it. During your treatment, we take a small amount of blood from you which is then placed into our centrifuge which separates the plasma rich protein from the blood.
Injecting the PRP into the tissues of the skin, stimulates your body to produce new, healthy cells and promotes healing. As natural growth factors are concentrated within the PRP injections, we can use this treatment to stimulate collagen and elastin production in your skin resulting in glowing, dewy skin. PRP also offers a low invasive way to stimulate hair growth that may be thinning due to hormonal issues or ageing.
In order to experience the full benefits of this entirely natural cell boosting treatment, you need to have a course of 3 treatments, with 1 each month.
There are many different systems out there, providing different quality results. Here at LPA we have opted for the leading PRP centrifuge system which allows us to spin off a 99% plasma solution. This is the best system out there providing the best solution to give you the best results.
At LPA you are in the safest hands. LPA is a medical clinic registered with Care Quality Commission and Save Face. Our treatments are only administered by highly skilled registered nurses.
During your treatment, we take a small amount of blood from you which is then placed into our centrifuge which separates the plasma rich protein from the blood. We use this growth factor packed solution as a serum which is injected into the area we want to treat using a fine needle.
PRP is delivered using a fine needle so is really comfortable but just to ensure your comfort we will apply a strong numbing cream to the area before injecting.
For skin treatments you will get an instant glow and feel the difference immediately. However this is a treatment that should be delivered in a series of 3 treatments to get the best results (this is imperative for hair thinning treatments).
PRP is a highly effective way to stimulate hair growth. This can be combined with Biotin injections, scalp treatments and hair transplant procedures. PRP for thinning hair is suitable for both men & women, for age related and hormone related hair thinning.
In order to minimise risk of bruising, avoiding alcohol & Ibuprofen the day before treatment is a good idea. It is always helpful to attend your appointment makeup free.
PRP can be delivered to specific areas of concern. Most commonly, it can be used around the eye – in the upper & lower lid. These areas are often avoided due to the thin skin but PRP is one of the only non-filler treatment options that are suitable. Bruising can be more likely in this area, so always plan for a bruise.
You can supercharge your treatment by adding a premium grade Hyaluronic Acid to your plasma. This will help to maximise the benefits of your PRP by intensifying hydration and prolonging the results of your PRP. The addition of Hyaluronic Acid will intensify your results and is highly recommended when targeting specific areas of fine lines, sagging and dehydration.
