What is PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma)

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) naturally restores collagen density, plumps skin, refined wrinkles and provides an overall full face and neck rejuvenation. It is particularly effective in treating the fine lines around and under the eyes where the skin is delicate and thin.

In this procedure the patients’ blood is drawn into a tube which is then spun in a centrifuge to isolate the platelets and growth factors which stimulate collagen.

Practitioner ONLY prescribed topical anaesthetic is applied to the area prior to treatment.

When Can I See Results?

Results can be seen as little as a few weeks afterwards but the greatest improvement takes 3 months as nucleogenesis (new collagen formation) is a slow process!

The most common side effect is localised swelling at the site of injection with the potential for slight bruising.

Usually 3-4 treatments are required 4-6 weeks apart. You can improve your skin dramatically through individualised rejuvenation plans at The Studio today.

While we are located in Winston Hills, we also service Northmead, Baulkham Hills, and Bella Vista areas. Call to book your consultation and appointment

Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
