What is PRP?
Platelet rich plasma (PRP) administration is a revolutionary method, based on using ingredients of your own blood, which can help regenerate and rejuvenate your skin. PRP is the cell free plasma fraction of whole blood containing a higher than normal concentration of human blood platelets per volume. Treatment with PRP has become an increasingly popular clinical tool utilised in soft tissue augmentation as well as bone regeneration.
"the angel lift"
" we’re using your body’s own organic material to regain your skin’s vitality. It’s great for those who are skeptical about injecting artificial materials into their body "
Soft tissue augmentation includes:
- facial rejuvenation therapy for wrinkles and sun damaged skin
- cutaneous wound remodelling
- hair loss
Connective Tissue is essential for the skin’s elasticity for a smooth and youthful appearance. The growth factors and cytokines that are necessary to stimulate new Connective Tissue production are contained in the fraction of your blood that is called “Platelet Rich Plasma” (PRP). PRP is rich in platelets, stem cells and growth factors and accelerates the healing process by taking advantage of the body’s natural healing pathways. The autologous (meaning from one’s own body) PRP will be obtained by your physician using the commercially available “easy-to-use centrifugal system” celluVance™ PRP kit.
After injection of the autologous PRP, the healing factors will mimic and accelerate the normal healing process via new cell production and Connective Tissue formation at the targeted area. PRP has been widely used for many years in plastic surgery, orthopaedics, dentistry, soft tissue implants, and other types of implants. Aesthetic practitioners are using the procedure for skin rejuvenation in patients with severe photo-aging and scarring, or hair loss in men and women.
Is the procedure safe?
The celluVance™ products uses the patient’s own blood (autologous) to extract the PRP rich in growth factors, therefore it cannot elicit an allergic response or cause any kind of cross infection. The celluVance ™ products concentrates platelets via a 1-step centrifugation step in special tubes followed by a safe and effective, thrombin-free activation method, thereby eliminating the risk of immunological reactions.
What results can be expected and how long will it last?
Optimal results will be visible after 4-6weeks after a once-off treatment but for optimal results 2-3 treatments are advised spaced 4-8 weeks apart. Mild to moderate cases will respond the best and follow-up treatments will most likely be necessary every 6-12 months. More severe cases will need more frequent follow-up treatments and/or combination therapy.

All our photographs of before and after treatment results are examples only, and do not constitute an implied or any other kind of guarantee of the result of treatment procedures. Results can vary significantly between our clients. All our treatment results are subject to the individualities of each client.
Furthermore, all treatment procedures carry potential risks and complications which are described in detail in our treatment consents forms. These may include, but are not limited to, bleeding, infection, asymmetry, dissatisfaction with the result and the expense of further treatments to manage a complication (patient forms). If you have any questions regarding these potential risks and complications. Please discuss them with our doctors or aesthetic therapist prior to treatments.
Before undergoing a treatment, please be sure that you understand that YOUR actual results will likely VARY SIGNIFICANTLY from other patient’s results, including their BEFORE & AFTER photos.
This is quite important to understand — that EVEN when you feel that you look very similar to another client in their BEFORE images, your results will likely vary significantly — because you are a unique person. Every individual has NOT only a completely unique physique, but also uniquely individualistic body healing capacities, scarring tendencies and recovery processes — some of which are unpredictable even in very-healthy patients who rest adequately and do ALL the other right things before and after their procedure.
Please be noted, our doctors and aesthetic therapists offer you our highest expertise in our aesthetic procedures.
