How does PRP work?

 

A small amount of your blood is drawn (about 10 mls per tube) and spun in a centrifuge machine. The centrifugation process separates the red blood cells and the PRP, which is then drawn up into syringes and is ready to be used in the skin. PRP can either be injected using small needles, a blunt tip cannula or micro needled using the MPen needling device.

Once injected, the growth factors then “activate” and continue to activate for 4-10 days post injection. Results can be seen in as little as 6 weeks.

PRP is proven to increase the number of collagen fibres in the skin, improved skin texture and elasticity as well as decreasing hair loss and increasing hair volume and strength.
