PLATELET RICH PLASMA (PRP) THERAPY UTILISES YOUR BODY’S OWN HEALING POWERS TO ENHANCE SKIN & HAIR.
PRP treatments involve using the body’s ability to regenerate and repair. It is a natural treatment that uses your own blood which once reintroduced to the treatment area, stimulates the body’s natural healing response to repair and regenerate the skin or hair follicle. The treatment will give you an instant skin ‘glow’ in the days following the procedure, and then the magic begins as the actual process of new cell formation starts. You will continue to see improvement over the next 30 to 90 days as you produce new cells in the treatment area.

We want to make sure all your concerns and questions are answered before you make a decision. Your consultation fee with Fulvio is redeemed against treatment if you go ahead, and all consultations with our nurse are free, no matter how many you need.
Cold gel packs are helpful immediately after treatment to reduce swelling. You should avoid scrubbing the injection sites for at least 4 hours but can use makeup straight away. From the evening of treatment and twice daily for the next few days you should gently wash your face with a mild cleanser, and then return to your usual skincare routine.
