Platelet Rich Plasma (P.R.P) therapy is a cutting-edge cosmetic procedure that utilizes your own blood’s healing and regenerative properties to promote skin rejuvenation. At SkinClin, we offer P.R.P therapy as a natural and effective solution to address various skin concerns and promote a more youthful appearance.
The P.R.P therapy procedure typically involves the following steps:
Consultation: During your initial consultation, our skilled dermatologists will evaluate your skin concerns, discuss your treatment goals, and determine if you are a suitable candidate for P.R.P therapy. We will explain the procedure in detail, answer your questions, and address any concerns you may have.
Blood Collection: The first step of the procedure involves collecting a small sample of your own blood. This is done through a simple blood draw, similar to a routine blood test.
Plasma Separation: The collected blood sample is then processed in a centrifuge machine to separate the platelet-rich plasma from the rest of the blood components. The plasma contains a high concentration of platelets, growth factors, and other beneficial proteins.
Application: The platelet-rich plasma is carefully applied to the treatment area(s) of concern. Depending on your specific needs, fine needles may be applied topically or injected into the skin. The growth factors and proteins in the plasma work to stimulate collagen production, improve skin texture and tone, and promote tissue regeneration.
Post-Treatment Care: Our dermatologists will provide specific post-treatment care instructions after the procedure. This may include avoiding sun exposure, using gentle skincare products, and following a healthy lifestyle to optimize the results of P.R.P therapy.
Benefits of Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy:
- Skin Rejuvenation: P.R.P therapy stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, essential proteins that contribute to firm, smooth, and youthful-looking skin. It can help improve skin texture, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and enhance overall skin quality.
- Natural and Safe: P.R.P therapy utilizes your own blood, making it a natural and safe treatment option. There is no risk of allergic reactions or adverse effects since it is derived from your own body.
- Versatility: P.R.P therapy can be used to address various skin concerns, including aging signs, acne scars, sun damage, uneven skin tone, and hair loss. It is suitable for different face and body areas, providing versatile solutions for cosmetic improvement.
- Minimal Downtime: P.R.P therapy is a non-surgical and minimally invasive procedure. The recovery time is typically minimal, and most patients can resume their regular activities immediately after the treatment. Some mild redness or swelling at the treatment site may occur but usually subsides quickly.
- Long-lasting Results: While individual results may vary, many patients experience gradual improvements in their skin over time. Multiple treatment sessions may be recommended to achieve optimal outcomes. The results of P.R.P therapy can last for several months to a year or longer, depending on individual factors and proper maintenance.

Is P.R.P therapy painful?
P.R.P therapy is generally well-tolerated by most patients. The procedure involves minimal discomfort, as a numbing cream or local anesthesia is applied to the treatment area before the injections or application of P.R.P. You may experience some mild soreness or swelling after the procedure, but it usually subsides quickly.
Are there any side effects of P.R.P therapy?
P.R.P therapy is generally considered safe with minimal side effects. However, as with any medical procedure, there can be some potential risks. Common side effects include temporary redness, swelling, or bruising at the injection site, which typically resolves within a few days. Our experienced dermatologists will discuss the potential risks and side effects with you during your consultation.
How long does a P.R.P therapy session take?
The duration of a P.R.P therapy session can vary depending on the treatment area and the specific concerns being addressed. A session can take approximately 30 minutes to an hour, including preparing and applying P.R.P. Our dermatologists will provide you with a more accurate estimate during your consultation.
How many P.R.P therapy sessions are needed to see results?
The number of P.R.P therapy sessions required to achieve optimal results can vary depending on the individual and the specific skin concerns being addressed. A series of three to six sessions, spaced several weeks apart, is recommended. Our dermatologists will assess your skin condition and provide you with a personalized treatment plan that outlines the recommended number of sessions for your specific needs.
