What is PRP?
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) is a component of your blood that contains special growth factors and proteins. It is often referred to as 'liquid gold' due to its ability to harness the body's own healing abilities. Studies have shown that PRP is considered a safe, natural approach to facial rejuvenation and hair regeneration.

When we combine microneedling and PRP, results are accelerated due to the healing properties that PRP possesses. Studies show that microneedling when combined with PRP has a significant improvement of acne scars and skin texture while also stimulating collagen production.
The under eye area is one of the most common first signs of aging. As collagen and elastin decrease with age, fine lines and wrinkles begin to form. Dark circles also become more prominent and many cosmetic injectors are reluctant to treat the under eyes with dermal filler because the skin is so thin making it a complex area to treat. PRP injections under the eye can stimulate collagen and elastin production which produces thicker, smoother skin. We recommend a minimum of 3 sessions, 4 weeks apart. Please note: Results can vary from person to person and individual outcomes may differ.
The growth factors that are found in PRP can stimulate dormant hair follicles by increasing blood supply to the follicle. PRP is suitable for those with androgenetic alopecia, male pattern baldness and general hair thinning. It involves tiny injections of PRP into the scalp combined with microneedling. We recommend a minimum of 3-6 sessions 4 weeks apart. Please note: PRP therapy is NOT a cure for hair loss. Results can vary from person to person and individual outcomes may differ.
