platelet rich plasma

Platelet Rich Plasma

A safe and natural technique which harnesses the healing and regenerative properties of your body’s own growth factors. This treatment can help to preserve healthy, youthful, smooth skin and visibly correct signs of ageing such as reduce fine lines and wrinkles, some scar removal, dull skin, stretch mark removal and poor skin quality.

PRP has an anti-inflammatory effect and is bactericidal (kills germs) so side effects from the PRP treatment are unlikely. Your practitioner will discuss any possible side effects, questions you may have and any aftercare you should adhere to prior to your treatment. PRP can be used on its own to improve your skin as well as during a Derma FNS treatment or after a laser treatment such as Clear and Brilliant and Fraxel.

Your medical practitioner will take a sample of your blood and processes it in a medical device called a Centrifuge to isolate the platelets found within you blood. When reintroduced to your skin, either by a number of tiny injections or during another treatment, your platelets release growth factors in the treated skin; growth factors are molecules which tell the skin to start the natural regeneration process.

 

Indications that PRP may be right for you:

You would like to improve the thickness and texture of your skin.

You would like to improve the tone and elasticity of your skin.

You would like to improve a dull skin tone.

You would like to improve the appearance of scarring.

You would like to improve the appearance of stretch marks.

You would like to improve the brightness under your eyes.

You would like to soften some signs of ageing, such as wrinkles.

You like how your skin currently looks and want to help maintain its look and feel.

You already have, or plan to begin, a skin care regimen to help protect against signs on ageing

You are already having cosmetic treatments, such as Fraxel Dual or Derma FNS, and want to further enhance your results and speed up any recovery time.

You don’t have the time or desire for more invasive procedures such as ablative laser resurfacing.

Will I need to take time off work after having the Platelet Rich Plasma treatment?

Possibly depending on the method used to reintroduce your PRP to your skin, for example, the Fraxel Dual treatment may require a few days downtime. However, it is in the PRP’s nature to speed up your recovery so it may actually reduce any expected recovery time associated with another treatment.

Is there anything I need to do before the PRP treatment?

One of the main requirements when drawing blood for both medical and cosmetic purposes is for you to be hydrated in the 24 hours leading up to your treatment. We also suggest that you drink a litre of water or squash an hour before treatment.

Being dehydrated may result in your practitioner being unable to draw your blood and therefore you may need to postpone your treatment.

Are there any side effects to the PRP treatment?

PRP has an anti-inflammatory effect and is bactericidal (kills germs) so side effects from the PRP treatment are unlikely. Your practitioner will discuss any possible side effects, questions you may have and any aftercare you should adhere to prior to your treatment.

What treatments can I have in combination with the PRP treatment?

PRP can be had as a stand-alone treatment during which your PRP will be reintroduced to your skin by small injections. PRP can also be reintroduced to your skin during the micro needling treatment, Derma FNS, as well as after some laser treatments including Fraxel and Clear + Brilliant.

I’m looking for a dramatic correction for my signs of ageing, is PRP right for me?

During your consultation, we will give you specific advice, however, this treatment can help to correct crepey skin, wrinkles and other advanced signs of skin ageing. It is not a substitute for surgical treatments.

PRP can be used in combination with and alongside other treatments for skin rejuvenation should you need or desire, such as Fraxel Dual, Byonik, Thermage CPT and the Thread Lift.

You may need more than one treatment to achieve your results. You and your practitioner will create a treatment plan which may include using this treatment alongside other treatments.

Am I too young to have a PRP treatment?

PRP can be considered by those in their 20s and 30s as a preventative treatment and to maintain and improve healthy skin. Those who have dull skin and/or those who have had lots of sun exposure may find this treatment beneficial also.

There may be alternative treatments that may be suitable for you depending on your concerns and skin condition and this will be discussed during your consultation.

From £350.

We offer a bespoke approach to treatment, tailored entirely to your needs and desires, therefore the cost of your individual treatment will be confirmed during your consultation following a thorough assessment.

My skin has been an issue for me and my confidence for years. I’ve been to GP after GP and not only did they not sort the issue but they didn’t understand the emotional side of acne and scarring, not one little bit. After coming to The Skin To Love Clinic I was absolutely blown away by their empathy and also the knowledge of your skin and incredible products.Emma

I was well-informed pre-treatment, followed by great care and consideration throughout. Great experience all round. I always feel in safe hands at the Skin to Love Clinic. Each step of treatment explained and carried out effectively. The nurse was considerate and very knowledgeable. The advice also given on post-care do’s and dont’s.Lara

Excellent professional and personal service.Jane

Very warm & lovely service as usual.Nusrat

As always my appointment with Jane was professional and exactly what I wanted. Skin to love takes into account your style of life and will advise and schedule treatments to fit around you. They follow up all treatments with a phone call or text to check for any concerns. I have been a customer for 3 years and have never had an issue and have no hesitation in recommending them as nice caring people and for providing only top quality service and products.Jean

Treatment Summary

No. of treatments
Depends on your concern. You can have single sessions, but a course may be beneficial. This will be assessed and discussed with you prior to treatment.

Recovery time
Usually none. If it is used in combination with another treatment, it may speed up the usual recovery time of that particular treatment.

Procedure time
After your small amount of blood has been drawn, it takes less than 10 minutes to process. Full procedure time will be dependent on the method used to reintroduce the PRP to your skin; on average, 30 minutes. This will be discussed with you prior to treatment.

Resume usual activities
Again, this depends on how the PRP is reintroduced to the skin. If used in combination with another treatment, PRP usually speeds up the recovery time associated with that particular treatment. This will be discussed with you prior to treatment.

Final results
Dependant on the method used to reintroduce the PRP to your skin. You may see immediate changes, or it may take a few days to start seeing changes.

Discomfort level
Usually mild discomfort, if any, at the time of drawing blood. This is tolerated well by our patients.

Duration of results
Up to a year for signs of ageing, dependent on the number of treatment sessions. If you are treating scarring or stretch marks, the result from this treatment should not reverse, however the treatment does not halt the ageing process and the skin in the area of your concern may change in appearance as you naturally age Best results are progressive and accumulative; patients notice results during the course of treatment however further improvement may be seen a few months following treatment as the deeper layers of skin continue to regenerate.

Consultation needed prior
Yes

We are all individuals, therefore, results from treatments may vary from person to person, because each person responds differently. Results achieved from the PRP treatment will last a different amount of time from person to person, this may even vary between treatments for an individual. Results, downtime and recovery following treatment will vary from patient to patient. The information we provide is based on the extensive experience we have gained from treating a wide variety of patients of different ages, genders and is based on an average patient experience

I'm claustrophobic so didn't like having my eyes completely covered, however, Jane was so patient & understanding & dealt with the situation brilliantly so I could have the treatment. It was a so easy in the end, took minutes, & nothing to worry about at all.

I cannot recommend the team the innovation and treatments more highly than at the Skin To Love Clinic. They are at the cutting edge of beauty and have new ways and procedures that make your skin look beautiful. I've spent many years on Harley and Wimpole street and assumed you couldn't get this level of investment and treatments anywhere else but the Skin the Love clinic not only offer every top treatment but the Jane and Sue are so skillful and have a real eye for what will work for you. Their mini thread lift is incredible as is their 'vampire' treatment but skin since I have moved to St Albans has improved dramatically

I have several issues with my skin and have been working with my doctor to deal with them. He referred me to a Dermatologist who advised on the treatment I needed. It took me a while to find the right place with the level of expertise that I needed and The Skin to Love Clinic ticked all of the boxes. My first experience with The Skin to Love Clinic was about 2 years ago. I had a consultation with Jane and immediately knew I was in good hands. I had a series of Fraxel laser which dealt with the issue as well as improved the quality of my skin. I am now dealing with a different issue and without hesitation made an appointment with Jane. What a relief to know that once again, I will be in the best hands and get the most appropriate treatment for my skin, not only dealing with the issue but also improving the health of my skin at the same time.About 4 years ago, I had threads from a well known Clinic in Harley Street. The process was extremely painful, left me with a lot of bruising, a disfigured face and took at least 6 weeks to recover. For the first 1 - 2 weeks I could hardly open my mouth, getting my toothbrush into my mouth was painful.2 weeks ago (with much trepidation) I had threads at Skin to Love. The difference was remarkable. This is a cosmetic procedure so when the threads are inserted, there is some discomfort. However, it was a far cry from the extreme pain from the Harley Street clinic. I had 1 pale yellow bruise about the size of 50p, no disfiguration and went out for dinner that night! My face was tender to touch for about 1 week but definitely not painful. I could see the results straight away and as time passes, it gets better. Thank you Jane for being so patient with me. I was so scared but now know I didn't need to be.

First time trying Regenlite today. Nikki was helpful explaining the process and I noticed some immediate reduction in redness on my cheeks. Nikki also recommended my next treatment for thread veins. All in all the super friendly and knowledgeable service I’ve come to rely on at Skin to Love.

Exceptionally positive experience:* A consultation is required to determine whether the requested treatment is suitable for me. This reassured me of their expertise and integrity (that they wouldn't just push any treatment on me)* Specialist Jane is clearly an expert on the Clear&Brilliant treatment and provided me with a comprehensive insight in the procedure + follow-up care and answered all my questions* Tomorrow I'll receive a check-in call, which shows their level of attentiveness* Reception staff is very friendly, welcoming and helpful* So far my Clear and Brilliant treatment looks good, will see results in 2-4 weeks

I made the mistake of buying a product called Eyesential; an under eye enhancer which temporarily erases puffiness, fine lines, dark circles and wrinkles in minutes and lasts for up to 8 hours. I used this product for a period of 7 years. During this time, the skin under and around my eyes became thinner, reddened, chronically dry and intensely wrinkled. I thought there was nothing I could do and would be left like this. I felt so depressed. Then one day when I was in The Skin to Love Clinic having treatment for Laser Hair Removal; I was informed about Thermage for the very first time. I now have this procedure done yearly. Jane has brought my skin back to its original state and more. My confidence has come back and I feel a so much happier. This treatment really works!

Emma is so professional and kind. At an initial consultation with her on a viral wart on my face, Emma explained my options and the procedure carefully and thoroughly. Afterwards I tried various lotions and wart removal products, but to no avail. Three months later I saw Emma again. It only took her a few minutes to surgically remove my wart. It was done with such a precision that my skin has been recovering really quickly and well. I highly recommend Emma!

Would recommend, had a consultation by the nurse , very informative and all staff are extremely knowledgeable of their treatments. Not pushy in selling products or services , the look and feel of the store is very warm and welcoming. I am looking forward to getting treatments there.Update in 4/10/2021 - after going to mobile therapists and now here, I must say there is a big difference ! much much more professional and great customer service - I have had anti wrinkle injections and was reassured this will work and it has! ( I had deep frown lines) worth the bit of extra money for sure!
