Although Platelet-Rich Plasma therapy, or PRP, has been around for a long time in reconstructive surgery, dentistry, and orthopaedic medicine, it’s also used now in dermatology and cosmetology.

Made famous by Kim Kardashian, PRP treatments and injections stimulate the skin to promote regeneration for absolute radiance. Island Glow Aesthetics offers PRP Therapy and the Vampire Facial, which consists of PRP and Skin Needling.

Perfect your skin’s texture using your own platelets!

Platelets are an important component in our blood and are necessary for normal clotting. When platelets are activated, they release several proteins as well as growth factors which release stem cells, increasing collagen formation, skin-tightening, and overall rejuvenation.

Due to these benefits, this treatment is also referred to as ‘Facial Stem Cell Regeneration’ therapy. PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma) treatment, often administered through PRP injections, is a revolutionary medical procedure that harnesses your body's natural healing abilities to promote tissue repair and rejuvenation. This minimally invasive therapy has gained popularity in various fields, including sports medicine, orthopaedics, and aesthetic medicine.

Whether injected, micro needled, or both, PRP will trigger your own body’s natural healing, reducing fine lines and wrinkles and improving skin’s texture and overall tone.

At Island Glow Aesthetics near Newhaven, we offer PRP treatment as a safe and effective option for addressing a range of concerns, from skin rejuvenation to hair loss.

The process involves drawing a small amount of your blood, processing it to concentrate the platelets, growth factors, and healing proteins, and then re-injecting this "liquid gold" into the targeted area.

Local anaesthesia is applied to the area to be treated, and the platelet-rich plasma or “liquid gold” is injected into the target areas with very small needles similar to those used in anti-wrinkle injections. The duration of treatment is approximately 20-30 minutes.

PRP treatment is prized for its natural approach, minimizing the risk of adverse reactions due to it using your body's own resources. Whether you're looking to stimulate hair growth, enhance your skin's texture and tone or regenerate and achieve a healthy glow, PRP injections at Island Glow Aesthetics can be your path to renewed radiant skin.

When it comes to skin and hair treatments, people are quite anxious about the treatment procedure. Here are some additional details to give you a clear picture of PRP treatment and injections at Island Glow Aesthetics.

What is the PRP treatment procedure?

For Platelet-Rich Plasma therapy, topical anaesthetic cream is applied to the area of concern, and a small amount of blood is drawn from the patient’s arm and placed in a sterile tube. As the cream starts to numb the skin, the tube is centrifuged for about ten minutes to separate the blood to extract the clear-coloured Platelet-Rich Plasma. This fluid is then activated with calcium chloride to help the growth factors along, and it’s injected into the desired areas with incredibly thin needles, much like the ones used for anti-wrinkle injections. All up, the process takes about 20 to 30 minutes.

The Vampire Facial, which is made up of skin needling and PRP, boosts the treatment, as thousands of microchannels created by the micro needling instrument allow the Platelet-Rich Plasma to really penetrate the epidermis and the dermis.

Decades of data back up the benefits of Platelet-Rich Plasma therapy, as the plasma has remarkable properties that improve skin texture and elasticity and remove acne scarring. We love it for its wrinkle reduction ability and how it improves complexion, texture, and brightness on the face, neck, and décolletage.

Platelet-Rich Plasma therapy has also been proven to promote hair growth for hair regeneration.

Results-wise, PRP is incredibly effective, as it promises clearer, more useful-looking skin. When the aim of the treatment is to improve skin texture, soften lines, and tighten skin, results will be noticed as soon as it heals, and dramatic improvement can be noted after several weeks. For the most effective outcome, you’ll need at least three sessions, spaced one-to-two months apart to allow for proper healing.

For Platelet-Rich Plasma therapy to improve specific areas, it costs $699 for a single session.
