PRP Skin Rejuvenation & Hair Loss
What is PRP and what can it be used for?
PRP stands for Platelet-Rich Plasma and is found within our blood. Plasma contains growth factors which enable our bodies to heal and regenerate. By extracting these growth factors we can then target specific areas to encourage the natural healing process to take place.
We can use PRP skin treatment for skin rejuvenation and to stimulate hair growth using micro-needling. We also use PRP to help relieve joint pain from sports injury or arthritis and also within our Dental treatments to assist with bone regeneration.
How long until I can see the benefits?
For skin rejuvenation and hair growth we advise that you have 3 sessions which must be taken a month apart. You will find that immediately after the procedure, you may feel that the skin is smoother to touch. However the body needs time and you will begin to notice the difference once the growth factors have become established and start the healing process.
Are there any side effects?
PRP is naturally sourced from your own body therefore the only reactions or side effects typically relate to the injection itself. These side effects can be some mild swelling and bruising from the injection site. Sometimes you may have some slight scratches on the surface of the skin and this should settle within a couple of days.
If you are concerned or feel you are having a reaction please do not hesitate to contact us or your GP.
What to expect on the day
To be able to extract the PRP from your body we will need to collect a small amount of blood from your arm, similar to a routine blood test. The blood is then placed in a centrifuge that spins the blood at high speed which allows the platelets to separate from the other blood cells.
Before the treatment, any make up will be removed and the area will be cleansed. We will use a topical anaesthetic on the injection sites, however sometimes this is not necessary as the method we use has little to no discomfort. The treatment itself can take up to 30 minutes depending on what area is being treated.
After having your treatment you are advised to avoid using any other product on the skin for 24 hours. This is to ensure the area is kept clean and to reduce any chance of infection. Full written aftercare instructions will be given to you after the treatment has taken place.

Genuine Dermal Roller™ Therapy™ provides advanced micro-medical skin-needling, a procedure that stimulates the skin to regenerate and repair itself naturally and safely, creating smoother, brighter, healthier, younger-looking skin.
Post treatment Guide lines
Immediately after your Genuine Dermaroller™ Therapy™ you will look as though you have moderate sunburn and your skin may feel warm and tighter than usual. This will start to subside after 1 to 2 hours and will normally recover within the same day with only slight redness the following day.
Your practitioner may well apply Medical Barrier Cream after the procedure to help soothe and calm the skin, continue to use until the redness has cleared.
Use tepid water to cleanse the face for the following 48 hours and dry gently, always make sure your hands are clean when touching the treated area. It is recommended that make up is not applied for 12 hours after the procedure although your practitioner may be able to supply you with specialist Lyco Gel make-up that they feel would be suitable for use during this period.
If you will be in daylight immediately after the procedure apply a broad spectrum UVA/UVB sunscreen with a SPF50.
In the days following your skin treatment, as the skin starts to regenerate and repair it may well feel drier than normal.

Celluma LED Light Therapy For Acne And Skin Rejuvenation
When P. acne bacteria builds up in pores, skin becomes inflamed, causing acne lesions and blemishes. Celluma light therapy works safely and effectively, without abrasive chemicals, harmful UV-rays or side effects, to destroy these acne-causing bacteria — not only clearing up existing blemishes but preventing future breakouts before they happen. In just minutes a day, you’ll be on your way
Celluma’s unique LED technology emits safe, UV-free low-level light energy that profoundly affects tissue at the cellular level. Blue, red and near-infrared lights are the most commonly used wavelengths in LED phototherapy. These specific wavelengths are well researched and scientifically proven to produce therapeutic benefits. Blue light penetrates through the epidermis and is known to kill P. acnes bacteria. Red light penetrates into the dermal layer and has been shown to enhance collagen and elastin production through photo-biostimulation of fibroblasts for improved skin tone, quality, clarity, and texture. Near-infrared light penetrates deepest to increase micro-circulation and tissue repair, as well as decrease inflammation and reduce pain.
This technology was originally developed by NASA for astronauts who could become injured or ill on a long-term space flight, the technology is used today as a safe method to treating acne and skin rejuvenation.
Celluma is FDA approved to treat acne and skin rejuvenation.
Course of eight 30-minute sessions twice a week are recommended the cost is £35 per session. This treatment can be added on as an adjunct to facials as well.
