A PRP facial uses your body’s own platelet rich plasma (PRP) cells to rejuvenate the skin by naturally stimulating your own collagen and elastin. Using the body’s own regenerative chemicals, no artificial chemicals or toxins are used, just your own blood which is treated and re-injected into your body.
PRP can be used in multiple areas, including hard to treat areas such as the delicate thin under-eye area. It has a regenerative effect by thickening the dermis, creating new blood flow whilst boosting collagen production.
It is particularly effective for creating younger looking skin, diminishing the appearance of fine lines and thickening the supporting layer of the skin. It can also be used to stimulate hair growth for both men and women who have thinning hair.
The results of PRP treatments are mainly dependent on the skill and experience of the clinician. Our team has many years’ experience in treating thousands of satisfied clients, giving you confidence in achieving an excellent result. One of our highly skilled Doctors delivers all our PRP treatments.*

PRP works by using your own blood (specifically platelets) in the treatment. After using a numbing cream to minimise any discomfort, a small amount of blood is taken and separated to retrieve platelets.
This platelet-rich part contains growth factors which stimulate the regeneration of tissue, causing the body to create new collagen and elastin, which are key to younger looking healthier skin.
PRP is currently used in several other areas of medicine, including dermatology and orthopaedics for deeper tissue repair.

Platelets contain a high content of growth factors – proteins that help to heal injured tissue. Upon re-injection into the skin, the platelets release their growth factors triggering the surrounding cells to proliferate, in turn stimulating repair, increasing volume and rejuvenating the skin.*
The therapy uses a small sample of your own blood, treated (in a centrifuge) to collect the Platelet-Rich Plasma, the component of blood that’s known to be highly effective in treating burns and skin injuries. The Platelet-Rich Plasma is then activated and injected into the chosen area stimulating the fibroblasts – the cells responsible for producing collagen. The pre-adipocyte cells – those that can convert into fat – are also stimulated, helping to naturally plump up the lines and contours of the face.*
The therapy is ideal to treat scarring, plump skin, smooth fine lines and wrinkles and give an overall fresh and glowing quality to the skin. It’s used in a variety of areas and applications:
To rejuvenate scar tissue
On the face, particularly around the eyes, mouth and nose
The backs of the hands
All over the body, more commonly the décolletage and even the knees to give skin a more youthful and radiant appearance
PRP therapy is suitable for most patients and it is often recommended as a safe alternative for individuals who are unable to undergo more invasive procedures, such as a full facelift.*
A small sample of blood is taken by one of our highly experienced doctors so that the platelet plasma can be extracted from the red blood cells.*
After a topical local anaesthetic is applied, the PRP is then injected into the desired area via a series of injections using a very fine grade needle. The whole procedure usually takes around an hour and patients are usually able to resume their normal daily routine almost immediately although, occasionally, some temporary redness and bruising may occur. *
Results begin to become visible after around two weeks, but with two to three top-up treatments, you can expect the results to last up to 18 months.*
