Platelet Rich Plasma is your own unique [autologous] tissue and so you are using your own blood to repair and improve your skin tissue. Platelet Rich Plasma has been used in hundreds of thousands of procedures around the world for over 30 years, predominantly in maxilla-facial, orthopaedic and cardiac surgery. More recently PRP therapy has been used successfully in advanced wound care treatment and increasingly for skin rejuvenation as an alternative to foreign substance injections like Botox and volumising fillers.
Slight swelling and redness may be present after the procedure but this is normal and temporary and your specialist surgeon will provide you with appropriate treatment and care.
The Platelet Rich Plasma is processed under exacting clinical standards which all clinicians must adhere to when working with blood products and the processing of the blood is at ‘point of care’, next to the patient.
