Platelet Rich Plasma

Ageing gracefully may lead to the gradual loss of skin firmness and youthful plumpness, attributed to diminishing collagen and elastin production. Our innovative Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) treatment harnesses your body's resources to naturally reinvigorate your skin. By withdrawing and processing your blood, we obtain enriched plasma, which is strategically injected into the target areas on your face and body. This process jumpstarts collagen and elastin production, leading to fresh, vibrant skin and a renewed youthful appearance within weeks. Optimal results continue to unfold over several months as collagen production post-treatment continues.

How it works

Experience the rejuvenating effects of Regen PRP through precise and targeted skin injection. At About Face Cosmetics, we utilise this innovative approach to promote tissue regeneration and repair with Regen PRP, a formulation infused with growth factors naturally activated from platelets. This formulation serves as a cornerstone in initiating the intricate tissue regeneration process, working in harmony with the body's mechanisms.

Regen PRP follows a threefold approach to skin revitalisation. Firstly, it stimulates the production of fresh collagen, countering the natural decline leading to wrinkles and sagging skin, thereby restoring firmness and elasticity. Secondly, it acts as a catalyst for mesenchymal stem cells, guiding them to multiply and transform, aiding in tissue repair—a crucial element in rejuvenating damaged or aging skin. Lastly, Regen PRP fosters angiogenesis, creating new blood vessels and ensuring the treated area receives essential nutrients and oxygen for efficient healing and regeneration. These mechanisms work together to result in a complexion exuding youthfulness and vitality.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Regen PRP?

PRP stands for Platelet Rich Plasma, blood plasma containing a high concentration of platelets, also known as thrombocytes. PRP can help regenerate and revitalise damaged skin, reduce fine lines and improve skin texture. Regen PRP® is a world-leading system for preparing PRP developed by RegenLab of Switzerland. Regen PRP is an approved system used to treat fine lines successfully worldwide since 2008.

What is involved in Regen PRP?

Preparing Regen PRP is a quick and easy process. Blood is collected from you in 1-2 specially designed tubes, which are then centrifuged for 5-10 minutes. During centrifugation, a patented gel within the tubes isolates PRP from other unrequired cells within the blood. Regen PRP is then ready for application. Depending on the indication, it can be applied:

  • As multiple small superficial injections
  • As deeper injections using a type of blunt needle called a cannula
  • Topically, in combination with other treatments

How does Regen PRP work?

Direct injection of Regen PRP into the skin supports and helps accelerate the process of tissue regeneration and repair. Regen PRP contains fundamental growth factors released by activated platelets to help initiate the tissue regeneration process by:

  • Stimulation of new collagen production
  • Induction of mesenchymal stem cell division and differentiation
  • Stimulation of angiogenesis, the formation of new blood vessels

Is Regen PRP safe?

Because Regen PRP uses your blood, the risk of immunological reactions or contamination with transmissible diseases is eliminated.

5 – 7 days before:

  • Post Care Bromelain Enzyme (Pineapple Enzyme ) has been found to shorten the life of a bruise and purchased from health food stores.

Post treatment care for PRP

  • Swelling will be present for 24 to 48 hours. The swelling will subside; be sure to sleep in an elevated position.
  • Avoid touching your face for at least two hours to allow injection sites to heal.
  • Wash your hands before touching injected areas to avoid introducing external infection.
  • Gently massage the area with Arnica cream to comfort.
  • Your treated area will feel a bit tender for a few days.
  • Bruising may occur - arnica tablets or spray may help speed up the recovery.
  • Lasonil cream can be applied to the area to help the body metabolize the bruise at a greater speed.
  • Avoid exposure to prolonged sunlight, rigorous exercise, saunas, hot baths and excessive amounts of alcohol, as this will increase the swelling and the possibility of bruising. However, a celebration drink is acceptable!
  • Keep the area free of oil-based products, heavy cosmetics and thick moisturisers for at least four hours.
  • It is essential that you attend your review appointment in 2 to 4 weeks' time so that we can compare it with your before photo. A three-month check-up is also required to check your progress.
