SkinBooster – Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)

By Caris, Dermal Therapist

Over the past couple of years, social media has been filled with pictures of celebrities having facials while covered in blood. Treatments such as this are known as ‘vampire facials’ or platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy.

By stimulating the production of new collagen and elastin, this treatment speeds up tissue regeneration. As plasma is natural, it has powerful properties and will help regenerate, strengthen and nourish the skin to achieve a healthy, glowing complexion. This unique multi-needle device, which uses the SkinBooster II device, delivers plasma in a highly effective way to the treatment area.

People seeking an alternative to dermal fillers for plumping up their skin have become increasingly interested in PRP treatments. In addition, many people consider PRP a safer alternative to injectables because it uses your own cells.

You may be an excellent candidate for this amazing treatment if you have uneven skin tone, acne scars, hyper pigmentation, fine lines, wrinkles, or even a receding hairline or hair thinning.

A series of 3 sessions spaced out 4 weeks apart is recommended for maximum benefits. Although, you will start seeing results even after a single session within 2 weeks. Your skin should appear younger and feel softer and more supple after 1 or 2 months of the treatment. You can expect results to last between 9 and 18 months. However, the effects can last as long as two years, depending on ageing, sun exposure and genetics.

Here at The Laser Hub we can tailor a customised treatment plan following your complimentary consultation. Your treatment plan determines the price, but the number of vials of PRP you use in your treatment determines the price as well.
