Plasma-Rich Protein (PRP) Treatments

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) hair rejuvenation

PRP is a non-surgical procedure for hair regrowth, best used for treating thinning hair and slowing or stopping the progression of hair loss. Losing your hair can be a hugely distressing thing to go through and it can have an impact on your self-esteem.

PRP treatment can tackle male and female pattern baldness and alopecia, as it encourages the growth of existing hair follicles, making your hair appear fuller and healthier without resorting to surgery. It is therefore the most natural way to stimulate hair growth.

The LHLC PRP treatment does more than provide you with a naturally growing full head of hair; it helps to return your self-esteem and confidence as hair loss can have a tremendous psychological impact.

Why choose PRP?

Hair loss is generally caused by a lack of cell renewal in the scalp – which makes PRP the perfect treatment as it stimulates the production of new healthy cells. It is a simple and totally natural. PRP provides safe and reliable results and has a very quick recovery period. Only a small amount of blood is taken as though you are having your routine blood testing. PRP Hair treatments provides effective results with high success rate.

What can PRP achieve?

  • Fuller and healthier natural-looking hair
  • Significantly increase of hair regrowth 
  • Production of new healthy cells 
  • Decreased hair dystrophy and burning or itching sensation 
  • Can serve as a safe and effective treatment option in alopecia areata

Before your PRP treatment

Consultations take place before any procedure to make sure everything is clear. The targets are agreed in writing and patients are fully aware of the possible risks and complications associated with PRP. During your consultation, you will:

  • Be able to discuss your circumstances 
  • Undergo a medical history check 
  • Understand and the treatment plan 
  • Be given time to ask advice and pose any questions 
  • Discuss available options, including costs and timescales 
  • Learn more about the PRP procedure 
  • Learn about the aftercare procedure

The PRP procedure

PRP is prepared from an extract of your own blood. PRP treatment will commonly last between 30 and 60 minutes. To do this, 30 to 60 ml of blood is drawn from your arm. The blood is then placed in a centrifuge. The centrifuge spins and separates the platelets from the rest of the blood components. The platelet-rich plasma will then be extracted. The concentrated and growth factor-concentrated platelets are injected into the scalp via micro injections.

After your PRP procedure

There is no downtime for PRP so you can immediately return to your normal daily routine. It is recommended that strenuous activity and alcohol consumption is be avoided for 24 hours post-procedure.

The results of PRP can usually be seen between 2 and 3 months post-treatment. Depending on your type of hair loss, and the extent of the loss, PRP for hair restoration is usually recommended as a course of 3 to 6 treatments spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart. Then depending on your individual needs, a maintenance session once a year is usual.

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) facial rejuvenation

Facials have been popular for decades. Once seen as an indulgence rather than necessary self-care, they have drastically surged in popularity in recent years. But advances in medical science never stop. Today, facials are safer and more effective than ever. At Skincology, we are proud to offer a PRP facial rejuvenation – an anti-aging treatment that offers many advantages over a traditional facial.

What is a PRP facial rejuvenation?

A PRP facial rejuvenation, also known as a vampire facial, is an advanced skincare treatment method that harnesses your body’s own natural power to heal itself. It is often called a vampire facial because it involves drawing your blood. Your blood is made up of four primary components: red blood cells, white blood cells, plasma and platelets. When the platelets in the plasma are concentrated, magic happens. To achieve concentrated levels of platelets in plasma, all four components of your blood are separated by density. Then, the platelets are injected into the plasma, excluding the red and white blood cells.

What happens with PRP therapy?

PRP therapy is used to describe any application of PRP, or platelet-rich plasma, to benefit the body. In the context of anti-aging, platelet-rich plasma is either injected into your skin at specific depths according to your aesthetic needs or the “blood” is spread on top of your face during treatment. Eventually, the PRP is absorbed by your skin. This cuts the recovery time from microneedling down to nothing while speeding along the collagen production process.

Benefits of a vampire facial

  1. Increased collagen production
  2. Reduced fine lines and wrinkles
  3. Tighter, firmer skin
  4. Improved moisture retention
  5. Enhanced skin tone and texture
  6. It doesn’t hurt
  7. Treatment is over quickly
  8. Lasting results
  9. No downtime is required
  10. Minimal preparation is required

Am I a good candidate for a vampire facial?

One of the most underrated benefits of a vampire facial is that it is right for nearly everyone. Prescription anti-aging ointments, creams and lotions can cause nasty side effects depending on your skin type, allergies and other factors. A vampire facial, on the other hand, uses blood from your own body. There’s no chance of an allergic reaction. There’s no chance that your body will reject it as a foreign substance because it’s a native substance. You may be a good candidate for a vampire facial if you:

  • Suffer from acne scars
  • Are afflicted by hyperpigmentation
  • Want to reduce fine lines and wrinkles
  • Want tighter, firmer skin
  • Have uneven skin tone
  • Are not ready for a facelift
  • Have dry skin
  • Feel your skin looks older than it should

Keep in mind, however, that people with certain clotting conditions requiring the regular use of blood thinners or other blood-related disorders are not the ideal candidate for a vampire facial.

Moreover, you may not be the best candidate if you expect the exact same results as a facelift. Extreme measures must be taken to reverse the effects of extreme sun damage.
