What is Platelets Rich Plasma (PRP) and how does it work?

Plasma is the liquid part of blood that provides a vehicle for red cells, white cells and platelets to circulate throughout the body.

Platelets are blood cells responsible for clot formation and they are essential for the body’s regenerative, healing process. They are very rich in growth factors. 

PRP is obtained by taking a sample of your blood that is then spun in a centrifuge for few minutes, to separate the red cells, that get discarded, form the plasma containing platelets.

The PRP obtained is then injected or microneedled into the chosen area to treat.

What conditions can be treated with PRP?

PRP can be injected or Microneedled onto face, neck, décolletage, scalp, hands and body. 

It is a safe, effective and minimally invasive treatment.

It can be used to treat a variety of skin conditions:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Under eyes puffiness and dark circles
  • Lips dryness and vertical lines
  • Acne scars
  • Loose skin
  • Age induced brown spots
  • Sun damaged skin
  • Cellulite
  • Stretch marks
  • Scars
  • Alopecia and baldness 
  • Neck and décolletage rejuvenation
  • Hands rejuvenation

It can be used in combination with other aesthetic treatments, such as Botox and fillers.

What can I expect from the treatment?

The growth factors, contained inside the Platelets, stimulate the production of new Collagen within the skin. This results in a younger, smoother, plumper and brighter looking skin.

The number of treatments needed depends on skin type and condition.

Usually a minimum of 3 treatments, with 4-6 weeks intervals, is needed to achieve optimal results.

It can be safely performed on any Fitzpatrick skin type.

It’s very effective when used in conjunction with Microneedling.

Who will perform the treatment?

The treatment is performed by Dr Golfomitsos.

It’s delivered with microneedling.

Prior to the treatment, a Lidocaine cream is applied onto the skin to render the treatment as comfortable and painless as possible.

The treatment is very well tolerated, with most people reporting only mild discomfort.

How long does the treatment take?

Each session lasts about 45 minutes. 

Prior to the treatment you will have to schedule a consultation with the Doctor to be assessed for suitability, to discuss goals and to choose the best treatment option for you. 

During this consultation you’ll be made aware of treatment’s benefits and side effects and you will have to sign a consent form.

How long do the results last for?

Results start to become visible 4 weeks after your initial treatment.

Once you have completed the whole course of recommended treatments, the final result will last for 6-12 months. 

After this period, a maintenance treatment will be required.
