PRP treatment in London
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections are becoming increasingly popular to treat a variety of conditions, including skin conditions like acne scars, wrinkles, sun damage, and ageing.
What are PRP Injections? The PRP treatment process involves having blood taken, from which Doctors then separate the platelets from the rest of the blood. Blood platelets are small blood cells that help the body heal wounds and injuries. From here, the Doctor will inject the concentrated mixture of platelets (PRP) directly into your skin in order to stimulate the body’s natural healing mechanisms.

PRP TREATMENT BEFORE & AFTER
WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENT PRP TREATMENT TYPES?
PRP is a fantastic cosmetic treatment for rejuvenating the skin naturally, and repairing the effects of ageing. It provides total skin rejuvenation, treats delicate or difficult to reach areas, and it is natural and safe. PRP-induced collagen production clarifies, rehydrates and rejuvenates after the first treatment, although a course of treatment is normally recommended. The procedure generally improves the overall health of the skin.
PRP injections can be effective in treating hair loss in men, both in preventing hair loss and in promoting new hair growth. PRP can also help stimulate hair growth after hair transplantation.
A small amount of the patient’s blood is collected and then passed through a centrifuge to separate the platelet-rich plasma from the red blood cells. The plasma is then injected into the scalp in a grid pattern. The treatment takes approximately an hour to complete. A treatment cycle usually consists of 3 PRP sessions with a series of injections each month for 3 months. Continuous maintenance treatment every six months is recommended.
CONDITIONS PLATELET RICH PLASMA THERAPY TREATS:

- Lines & Wrinkles
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Usually the area which will be treated is numbed with lidocaine before the PRP injection is administered, so the actual injection will only be slightly uncomfortable. The lidocaine will, however, wear off within a few hours, and patients may experience mild to moderate pain for a few days following the injection.
After the PRP procedure, avoid:
- applying ice or heat to the injection site for the first 72 hours post-procedure
- taking a hot bath or visiting saunas for the first few days post-procedure
- consumption of any alcoholic beverages for 2 days post-procedure
A PRP injection is a low-risk procedure and usually does not cause major side effects. PRP is naturally generated from your own blood cells, and as such any side effects would stem from the injection itself and not the contents of the PRP injection. Possible side effects may include minor swelling or bruising on the injection site.
It can take six to 12 months to visually see PRP results in the mirror, although most clients start noticing results after just 6-8 weeks. For each PRP Restoration treatment, standardised photos are taken so that you can monitor the improvement.
