We have been receiving really positive feedback from our clients who are undergoing the REGEN Platelet Rich Plasma treatment to improve their skin texture and tone, especially for the treatment of fine lines around the eyes. PRP, or Regen, is a collagen stimulating therapy and is ideal for treating ageing skin on the face, neck, eyes and décolletage.
As we age, collagen and elastin become depleted in our skin causing lines, wrinkles and thin skin. Platelet Rich Plasma is a treatment designed to improve the texture and tone of the skin, helping it become progressively thicker, tighter and more supple.
It is a and safe procedure which involves taking a blood sample and spinning it down in a centrifuge to concentrate the platelet rich plasma. We extract and process it on site at our clinic. This is then injected into the desired areas of the skin over a series of just 2-3 treatments. This same technique has previously been used with success in the treatment of burns, orthopaedics and to accelerate wound healing. You will see results after a month and it continues to improve for many months after.
To enhance the effect of the rejuvenation, we can administer a volumising dermal filler to lift the cheeks, which also decreases the depth of the lines around the mouth and nose.
As we age, we have a tendency to break down collagen and elastin, so top up treatments are recommended every year or two to slow down the ageing process.
