Frequently asked questions
What is PRP?

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is the future of regenerative skin and joint treatment. By encouraging the body to create reparative cells, PRP is able to aid joint recovery and muscle tendon repair after injury.

PRP is a form of cosmetic injectable treatment that uses patients platelet rich plasma found in their blood cells. The plasma component contains stem cells and growth rich platelets and when injected back into the skin, it stimulates the body’s natural production of collagen and elastin to provide overall skin rejuvenation. With concentrations of up to 2 million in every microlitre, the PRP injected at SKIN CLUB – Cosmetic Doctors is up to 7 times more concentrated in comparison to other PRP treatments on the market.

What does the PRP process involve?

First the doctor will take a sample of your blood – a very quick and painless process. Then we will use our state of the art equipment to extract essential nutrients and blood components necessary to reproduce collagen – Platelet Rich Plasma. After 15 minutes of this process we re-inject your own platelets and plasma into the middle layer of your skin. Treatment with PRP stimulates migration of growth factors, which helps to rejuvenate the skin’s surface and reverse the signs of ageing. This process is recognised internationally by cosmetic doctors as the latest advancement in anti-aging treatments.

How many treatments do I require?

The number of treatments required for PRP joints treatment ranges from 2 – 14 sessions, depending on the region being treated. Each session will required at 1-3 week intervals.

 

Can PRP be used in combination with other treatments?

Yes, PRP for joints can be used in combination with different treatments. During your consultation your doctor will discuss which treatments can be performed in combination with PRP to provide the best results.

Where can I have PRP?

PRP is most suitable for areas of the skin where there has been discoloration or scarring, or for patients experiencing chronic joint/muscle pain.
