Celebrity treatment on a rise in 2023

PRP is all the rave right now! So what is it?
Platelet-Rich Plasma relies on a person’s blood. The blood contains a vital component called platelets. These platelets contain key growth factors and aid in the healing of wounds. The platelets are extracted by a machine called a centrifuge.
Now, how does this relate to aesthetics?
With the ’clean-girl’ aesthetic increasing prominently in popularity, this treatment is a no-brainer for those who want more even and smooth skin complexion without the use of traditional hyaloric acid fillers. PRP is an injectable cosmetic procedure that makes use of the patient’s own platelet-rich plasma. Stem cells and growth-promoting platelets are present in the plasma component. It increases the body’s normal production of collagen and elastin when injected back into the skin to achieve total skin rejuvenation. This treatment shows promising results for evening out skin texture, combatting dark circles, tightening and plumping of the skin to name a few!
These growth factors present in the platelets are not only useful for skin, they also work wonders on hair too! Due to PRP being rich with growth factors, it provides a support to the body’s natural healing and regeneration process. The hair follicles are targeted and activity in the follicle is stimulated, this promotes the production of new hair development. Overall, PRP for hair is a great treatment for clients who suffer from hair loss!
What is the process?
Blood is drawn typically from a patient’s arm into a vial. This vial is then placed inside a centrifuge which rapidly spins the vial. The result? Two clear separate layers, a clear fluid on the top (plasma) and a red layer which is the remainder of the blood. The plasma is drawn up into a syringe and injected into the skin across multiple sites in the face or hair.
Procedure time from start to finish is around 30 minutes, a short treatment time for beautiful results!
Results can be seen from a couple of weeks post treatment. It is recommended to do this procedure 3 times, 4-6 weeks apart for best results.
