Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy or PRP Therapy

PRP Therapy has attracted a lot of attention in recent years, as it is the treatment that is at the foundation of what is sometimes referred to as the Vampire Facelift or Dracula Therapy.

However PRP Therapy is founded on discoveries made in the 1950’s and has long been used to treat sporting injuries and in orthopaedic medicine.  Within Dermatology, PRP Therapy is used to both combat hair loss and for skin rejuvenation. PRP Therapy uses your own blood to help stimulate cell growth in the treated area.

After withdrawing a small amount of your blood, it is processed in a high-speed centrifuge so that only a platelet rich plasma remains. This plasma, which contains the essential proteins needed for hair growth and skin rejuvenation, is then injected into the treatment area using extremely fine needles.

As PRP Therapy requires multiple injections into the treated area it is important to use a doctor who is skilled at injecting, as their injection technique will be important to determining the overall success of the procedure.

Used to treat: Hair Loss and Ageing Skin

  • Number of treatments required: Dependent on your condition.
  • Results visible: Approximately 2 months for skin rejuvenation but longer for hair loss.
  • Social downtime: 24 to 72 hours.
  • Ouch factor: Moderate.

To find out more about PRP Therapy, book a consultation with Dr Haus or one of his colleagues.

Responses to treatment will vary from person to person and may even vary in the same person over time. It is for this reason that results are not guaranteed.

 

I was introduced to Dr Ariel Haus a few years and I’m very grateful for that introduction. Both himself and staff are very professional, I always get a warm welcome and I would highly recommend him for your Dermatology needs.
