Platelet Rich Plasma Treatment

Regenerate your skin with the power of Platelet Rich Plasma

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy is a new and exciting treatment option for those seeking to improve the appearance of their skin. PRP therapy uses the patient's own blood to create a powerful serum that is then injected into the skin. The platelets in the serum help stimulate collagen production, resulting in firmer, smoother, and more youthful-looking skin. Additionally, PRP therapy can help to improve the appearance of acne scars, fine lines, and other imperfections. As a result, PRP therapy is an excellent choice for those seeking to refresh and rejuvenate their appearance.

What is Platelet Rich Plasma Treatment?

Platelet Rich Plasma therapy, also known as PRP, is a cutting-edge treatment that uses the patient's own blood to promote skin regeneration. The injection contains large numbers of platelets, which are cells that play an important role in the healing process. These healing platelets can be injected into areas of the skin to rejuvenate and heal the tissue. This promotes the production of collagen and elastin, which in turn help to improve the appearance of wrinkles and other signs of aging.

PRP injections are a relatively new treatment option, but they have been shown to be safe and effective in clinical studies. King Street Aesthetics is one of Illawarra’s leading providers of PRP injections, and we have seen great results with this treatment. PRP injections can be used to treat a variety of conditions, including tendonitis, ACL injuries, and muscle strains. However, at King Street Aesthetics we focus on the regenerative power of PRP for cosmetic purposes.

If you are interested in rejuvenating your skin with PRP injections, feel free to schedule a consultation with one of King Street Aesthetics’ doctors to ensure this treatment is right for you.

How does PRP work as a cosmetic treatment?

King Street Aesthetics offers a variety of facial rejuvenation treatments, including platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy. PRP therapy is a minimally-invasive procedure that can help to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, as well as to brighten and smooth the skin.

A King Street Aesthetics doctor will begin the treatment by applying a topical anaesthetic to the area that will be treated. Afterwards, the doctor will withdraw a small quantity of blood from the patient. The blood will then be centrifuged for approximately five minutes to separate the plasma from the other blood particles. Lastly, the platelet-rich plasma will be reinjected back into the treatment area to stimulate skin regeneration. The entire process usually takes less than an hour, and most patients report minimal discomfort during and after the procedure.

PRP therapy is an effective way to improve the appearance of the skin, with results typically lasting for six to twelve months.

Who is Platelet Rich Plasma Treatment Most Suited For?

King Street Aesthetics is a trusted provider of PRP (platelet-rich plasma) therapy in Warrawong and the Illawarra region.

PRP therapy is a highly effective treatment for skin concerns such as loss of firmness because it stimulates the production of collagen and elastin. Particularly, it is also an excellent option for addressing signs of ageing around the delicate under-eye area, where light therapy cannot be used.

PRP treatment is also effective for both men and women who are experiencing thinning hair or hair loss, but it is particularly effective for treating male pattern baldness.

If you are considering a PRP treatment, King Street Aesthetics’s doctors can help you to determine whether this treatment is the most suitable for your specific concerns.

What to expect after a PRP Treatment?

Most people will experience some mild to moderate swelling in the area of treatment, redness or heat, which are all common, temporary side effects and are part of the activation of your platelets. Bruising may occur and last several days. Don’t worry: our doctor will suggest to you how to relieve the side effects that may occur - for example, using ice packs.

In terms of results, most people will see an obvious improvement in their skin within a few days after treatment but it can take up to a week for the full effect to be seen. It is important to remember that this is a natural process and to be patient while your body heals itself.

Most patients will require three treatments at four to six-week intervals. The first thing people notice is an improvement in skin turgor or elasticity. Collagen production can take up to three months to occur and the results can differ depending on the individual. A series of three treatments is often recommended in order to achieve optimal results. Studies have shown that patients who receive a series of treatments tend to have longer-lasting results than those who receive a single treatment.

Choosing The Right Treatment Option

Peels and abrasion are two common treatment options for tackling the signs of ageing and various other skin concerns. While chemical peels involve using chemical acids to remove the surface layer of dead skin cells, microdermabrasion involves using tiny abrasive crystals to physically polish away damaged skin. Both methods are relatively affordable and don't require much downtime, making them popular choices for those looking to improve their complexion without breaking the bank. However, they do come with certain drawbacks as well. For example, chemical peels can cause irritation or dehydration, while microdermabrasion may be too harsh on more sensitive skin types. 

Ultimately, the right choice depends on a variety of factors, including cost and individual needs and preferences. So if you're thinking about trying one of these treatments, it's important to do your own research and consult your GP beforehand. King Street Aesthetics offers discovery consultation to help you evaluate what treatments are best for your specific situation and what kind of treatments plan fits your needs.
