We offer RegenLab – recognised as the leading patented technology for Autologous Platelet Rich Plasma (A-PRP). This treatment processes your own blood, concentrating the powerful growth factors of your own platelets to regenerate and rejuvenate the skin and stem cells. A high concentration of your blood platelets stimulates stem cells, increases production of collagen, nutrients and antioxidants. Treatment can also see an improvement in the appearance of your skin, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and plump up areas that have lost volume over time.
PRP is a great option for those who are looking to achieve the following cosmetic goals.

PRP is an effective choice in treatment for several areas of your face and body, including the following:
No. After the treatment, you will first experience some swelling. Once the swelling has subsided, typically in 24-48 hours, you will not see much difference right away. Over the course of a few weeks, the platelets will stimulate the growth factors which will lead to the healing collagen growth. Results are typically best visible between three and six weeks, with continual improvement seen over the next 6 months.
Results will also depend on your overall health. Smoking, alcohol consumption and a poor diet can have an impact on your results. Stop smoking, limit alcohol and ensure you are eating healthy and staying hydrated.
The health and the age of your skin will determine the number of treatments that you will need. It is typically advisable to have 3 to 4 treatments, spaced 4 to 8 weeks apart. You can, of course, explore additional treatments in order to maintain your fresh and refreshed look.
Blood will be drawn by one of our cosmetic nurses or physicians. The number of tubes/vials collected will depend on the size of the treatment area. Typically, you need just one or two small tubes/vials. The blood is spun to isolate and concentrate the body’s natural and powerful regenerating growth factors.
Most patients tolerate the injections very well without numbing creams. Your comfort is always our priority therefore we will apply a topical pain-relieving solution for facial PRP and for hair PRP we will inject a local anaesthetic to ring block the area being treated.
The PRP injection triggers the body’s own healing mechanism.
The cells in the targeted area are revitalised and rejuvenated. This serves the goal of improving skin, filling lines and wrinkles, and aiding in scar healing, with visible results in as little as 3 weeks. PRP can even promote hair growth in patients with thinning hair or alopecia with results in 2 months.
PRP rejuvenates skin by stimulating the patient’s body to increase the production of collagen and elastin to improve skin appearance, tone and texture, contributing to treating the following with visible results in 3-6 weeks.
Expect to see a youthful boost. The treatment will tighten your skin and leave a fresh glow on your skin. The fine lines and wrinkles on your face will be less noticeable. Dark circles under your eyes will look less severe. Scars, whether from injury or acne, will fade and skin texture will be improved.
This treatment is equally effective for both men and women. Anyone who can benefit from a refreshed look can benefit from PRP therapy.
PRP therapy is non-invasive and non-surgical. There are, however, still some steps that you need to take in order to ensure that you get the best in results from the treatment. Firstly making sure you are well hydrated on the day of treatment. Provide us with a complete list of any medications that you take, including prescriptions, over-the-counter medications and herbal supplements. You should avoid taking anti-inflammatory medications and steroids for several weeks prior to and after the procedure.
Every person has his or her own threshold for pain tolerance. A topical anaesthesia can be applied if you are concerned about pain. PRP typically uses very small needles.
There is almost no chance of rejection of the platelet-rich plasma. Your body is not likely to reject its own blood.
The ideal candidate for PRP treatment is any adult looking for a natural, non-medicinal and non-surgical approach to healing. You should be in good general health.
There are some medical conditions that may exclude you from qualifying as a good candidate for this treatment. Anaemia, low platelet counts, an infection or active cancer may not be suitable for this procedure. Those who are taking blood thinning medications should speak with their prescribing doctor for further guidance.
PRP therapy is a safe and natural treatment. Treatment concentrates the healing factors in your own blood. The blood is injected directly into the area that is being targeted for healing. This ensures that there are no risks for rejection from your immune system. There are also no risks of infection or allergy. There may be some mild redness, bruising and swelling after treatment. Mild headaches are also a possibility, but they typically respond well to over-the-counter pain relievers.
PRP therapy is considered to be a lunch-time procedure. It takes around a 45 to 60 minutes to be completed. You can typically return to work right after your hair PPR treatment has concluded however some facial PRP treatments may require you to head home if swelling takes place.
Minimal downtime is needed after this non-invasive treatment. It is advisable to avoid spending time in the direct sun or high intensity work outs for at least 24 hours after your treatment. You will also be advised to avoid touching or washing your face for 6 hours after having the procedure. After 6 hours, you can use a mild soap and warm water.
