PLATELET RICH PLASMA
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is a process of taking your blood and spinning it in a centrifuge to separate the red blood cells from the plasma. This platelet-rich plasma is then injected into your skin. The platelets become activated to release growth factors, attracting stem cells to produce healthy skin cells and new collagen. It is a simple and safe treatment that delivers amazing long-lasting results.
PRP is the ultimate biological skin rejuvenation treatment, as it utilises your own cells in the form of platelet-rich plasma to regenerate new skin tissue.
This new approach appeals to clients seeking a more natural method of facial rejuvenation. This is also referred to as Autologous Cellular Regeneration (ACR), an aesthetic practice, which is safe and effective.
PRP is the name given to blood plasma with a high concentration of platelets. Platelets are components of blood integral in blood clotting and tissue repair. The concentrated platelets in PRP contain large doses of bioactive proteins (known as growth factors) that are pivotal in the repair and regeneration of tissues. These special proteins also initiate new blood vessel formation, bone regeneration and healing, connective tissue repair, and endorse overall wound healing.
PRP ‘Skin Regeneration Therapy’ utilises this concept of biological stimulation to regenerate new skin tissue. The growth factors released from the concentrated platelets activate resident stem cells and dormant skin cells. This stimulates new collagen and hyaluronic acid production and epithelial cell growth resulting in a dramatic improvement in skin health and appearance. Because your own plasma is used, there is no danger of disease transmission or allergic reaction.

PRP Hair Rejuvenation
Whether it is genetic, due to stress, bad haircare, or any medical condition – hair loss (Alopecia) is a prime concern for many men and women these days. But with advances in the field and adequate research, various new techniques have been developed to help.
A major advancement in alopecia treatment is regarding cell therapy investigations, which are already being applied in the treatment of hair loss and has produced good results. This includes the platelet-rich plasma combined with growth factors presented in Dermapen as a treatment.
In recent studies, the platelet-rich plasma (also called “PRP”) is revolutionary in various fields of medicine, such as sports medicine, aesthetic medicine, and ulcer treatment. Now it is being combined and applied with Dermapen and has shown to be a revolutionary treatment in the aesthetic field, which as a whole has been utilized in treating alopecia and produced good results.
Frequently Asked Questions
WHAT IS TREATMENT USING BOTH DERMAPEN AND PRP?
This new technique involves intradermal injection of growth factors – active proteins produced by human cells that are found in greater proportions in platelets. It is a protein complex derived from platelet-rich plasma obtained from the patient by blood collection and subsequent centrifugation. Subsequent to obtaining the PRP, the doctor first applies Dermapen, producing an initial stimulation and activation of scalp cells and hair follicles, then PRP subsequently is applied to the scalp through microinjections directly into the area where thinning and/or hair loss is observed. Growth Factors Platelet Rich Plasma activates the hair root, improving hair quality and ceasing its loss.
WHAT EVIDENCE SHOWS THE EFFECTIVENESS OF PRP + DERMAPEN IN ALOPECIA TREATMENT?
Throughout the past year, some scientific publications have been reported in which the authors show the relationship between PRP + Dermapen for alopecia and its beneficial results.
IS THE PROCEDURE SAFE?
It is an extremely safe procedure, since the PRP and growth factors used are autologous; in other words, the client provides them for their own treatment (client’s blood is withdrawn and placed in a machine which spins the tubes to separate the red blood cells from the plasma). Growth factors are specific to each individual tissue, which makes this system a personalised treatment, avoiding the risk of infection or allergic reactions, and eliminates issues with compatibility.
