Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy uses an extract of your own blood that contains a high concentration of platelets, growth factors, and active proteins essential for tissue regeneration and healing. PRP at Angel Aesthetics includes injections to targeted areas and plasma needling to induce rapid skin rejuvenation.
PRP is the ultimate biological skin rejuvenation treatment. It uses the patient’s own cells to refresh the complexion and provide overall rejuvenation by repairing the elasticity, colour and quality of the skin which minimises wrinkles, scarring, and crepe skin; as well as a leading treatment in hair restoration.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy, also known as the ‘Vampire Facial’ made so well-known the Kardashians is often used as a natural alternative to cosmetic treatments like dermal fillers and Botox. The concentrated platelets in the extracted plasma contain growth factors that stimulate collagen production, which helps to rejuvenate and brighten the appearance of your skin, promote hair growth, reduce fine lines & wrinkles, and improve keloid, stretch mark and acne scarring.
PRP therapy is the ultimate biological treatment for the face, neck, and décolletage to achieve a more youthful and radiant complexion. Angel Aesthetics PRP procedure involves drawing a small amount of the patient’s own blood, processing it in a centrifuge to concentrate the platelets, and then injecting the PRP into the targeted areas of the skin, followed by skin needling using your own plasma and a compounded hyaluronic acid serum.
SkinPen® is the only TGA approved medical grade needling technology producing more dramatic results to rejuvenate skin, combat stubborn pigmentation and help repair acne or surgical scarring.
Our highly trained nurses will only treat a patient if both their aesthetic results & medical best practice standards can be met. This means we aren’t able to treat if you are contraindicated, not a candidate or go against our policies. PRP is mainly used for aesthetic reasons, it is still a prescription treatment that can only be administered by a registered medical professional.
Please ensure you:
Please discuss your individual candidacy requirements with your healthcare provider prior to undergoing PRP therapy, as they can provide you with more specific information based on your medical history and current health status such as;
The expected results from platelet-rich plasma (PRP) cosmetic treatment can vary depending on the individual patient’s skin condition, age, and health status, as well as the number of treatments received. We reccomend an intial treatment of 3x treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart, followed by 3x sessions spaced 12 weeks apart if indicated or treating keloid/pockmark scarring or hair loss etc.
The expected benefits of PRP therapy are:
It’s important to note that the results of PRP therapy may take several weeks to fully develop, and multiple treatments may be needed to achieve the desired outcome. The effectiveness of PRP therapy for cosmetic purposes may also vary depending on the individual patient’s skin condition and the specific technique used during the treatment. It’s best to consult with a qualified healthcare professional to determine if PRP therapy is a suitable option for your specific cosmetic concerns.
Downtime for platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatment is generally minimal, and most patients can resume their normal activities immediately after the treatment.
Most patients can expect to see pinpoint redness at the injection sites, and overall redness & tightness to the skin surface from micro needling that fades within 1-4 days for most patients. Swelling is unlikely but can occur to the injection sites. If so, you can take a non-drowsy antihistamine (Zyrtec, Telfast, Claritin etc) to help bring it down quicker. The risk of bruising is minimal; however this risk varies from patient to patient due to the placement of blood vessels under the skin. If you do bruise, the best way to heal is to up your water intake and get a minimum of 8 hours sleep per night. To boost your healing, LED Healite II treatments are amazing, or you can spot apply Arnica cream from 48 hours post treatment.
Aftercare guidelines for PRP Therapy:
Please note the specific aftercare and downtime guidelines for PRP cosmetic treatment may vary depending on the individual patient’s medical history and the specific technique used during the treatment. Patients should always follow their healthcare provider’s instructions for aftercare and report any unusual symptoms or complications that may arise after the treatment.
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy is generally considered a safe and minimally invasive procedure, as it utilises the patient’s own blood and avoids the use of intravenous drugs or surgery. However, as with any medical procedure, there are potential risks and side effects to be aware of. Some of the most common risks associated with PRP treatment include:
It’s important to discuss any concerns or questions you may have about the risks associated with PRP therapy with your healthcare provider prior to undergoing the treatment. They can provide you with more information about the potential risks and benefits based on your individual health history and circumstances.
Upon arriving to Angel Aesthetics, you will be greeted by our Angels and checked in via our booking system. If you have any patient forms left to complete (these are sent as part of your reminder message), please arrive at least 5 minutes early.
At your appointment time, your nurse will take you through and begin your consultation, which is provided as part of all treatments booked – we’ll never treat you without knowing your goals. During this consultation, the entire treatment area will be numbed, then you and your nurse will decide on the best treatment option/s for you, depending on your candidacy, goals and budget.
Your nurse will advise you of your expected results, discuss with how many treatments are recommended to meet your goals, and go through your aftercare instructions & any potential side effects to look out for.
A prescription for your treatment will be obtained via telehealth consultation if you are a new patient to us, or if it’s been more than 12 months since your last appointment. The doctor will also go through the risks again and obtain your consent to a prescription and subsequent administration.
Any makeup will be removed and the treatment area cleansed and disinfected in preparation for treatment. Your nurse will inject the plasma to targeted areas, and then microneedle any remaining plasma with a HA serum into the skin. Your nurse will check in with you from there and in roughly an hour, treatment will be complete.
After your treatment, your nurse will take you through to reception to complete payment, and you’ll be offered to sit and relax with a coffee, tea or sparkling water & some snacks to unwind and relax post treatment.
We use, depending on patient candidacy, either a very strong TLA (topical local anaesthetic) and/or local anaesthetic via injection to the treatment area/s. Both the injection needle and the microneedling head are extremely fine gauge, and with numbing the pain is minimal, but a pressure sensation can be felt
