Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) injections target damaged cells with concentrated platelets from your own blood. These platelets are used in clotting and tissue healing, and so are used to speed up recovery.
Platelet Rich Plasma is taken from your own blood so the treatment has very low side effects but is used to treat a multitude of areas. We can use it for the following procedures:
PRP therapy is regularly used in hair restoration with good outcomes for both men and women. Growth factors in your blood cells do the job of naturally stimulating hair follicles.
We recommend a course of up to 3/4 treatments, 4 weeks apart. Then, maintenance treatments 6-18months.
PRP is an especially safe treatment option with no risk of allergic reaction because it is your own blood. However, anytime a needle is placed in the body, there is a risk of infection, bleeding, and nerve damage, but this is extremely rare.
The recovery time from Platelet Rich Plasma treatment is usually a couple of hours. The redness following the treatment normally settles within the hour. Most patients feel more than comfortable carrying about their normal business the same day following PRP treatment.
High amounts of good quality evidence-based medicine support the treatment of PRP, along with its efficacy and success. This evidence exists in many different areas of treatment including; surgery, skin cosmetics, hair restoration, along with being commonly used in sports medicine and orthopaedics. It is also worth noting that research takes time and is expensive, but this being said further solid research is being produced regularly. Particularly, the treatment of PRP versus standard conventional drug treatments.
How many treatment will I need?
This depends on what you are trying to achieve. The most treated area of the body is the face and this treatment is extremely effective. Since offering this treatment here at Peppermint we have undertaken many treatments on a variety of clients. Here at Peppermint we do not like to waste our clients money and this treatment is one of our best but everyone has to start somewhere. We recommend 2-3 treatments, 4-6 weeks apart. The first treatment sets the foundation, the second treatment builds up the structure and the third helps with ironing out the imperfections (or puts you on the right track). Once the three treatments are completed you may feel you want another (depends on the condition of the skin) but the results can last approx 12-18 months but generally to save starting the ground work again it's recommended to have a treatment every 6-8 months to keep on top of things to help fight against age, gravity, depleting collagen, elasticity and sagging skin from depleting fat pads under the skin.
