PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma)

Natural healing La Sante offers PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) treatment which is effective in treating a variety of skin concerns in a natural way. The treatment involves the harvesting of PRP from the blood, then injecting the healing plasma back into the skin, promoting collagen growth and radiant skin.

The treatment, which has proven results, helps diminish signs of ageing, acne scars, dark circles and improves skin texture and tone. PRP can treat skin concerns in the facial area, particularly loss of volume in the cheeks, neck and the back of the hands. The treatment also has a range of benefits for hair growth and restoration.

Process

At La Sante, the treatment can be delivered in three variations. Option one is the plasma being delivered via a cannula in a few points of entry.

Option two is in combination with micro-needling. With a derma pen or micro roller, your practitioner will create controlled injury to the skin, infusing the plasma over the top the injury, resulting in the production of new collagen. This option is particularly suited for those wanting to treat acne scars and minimise open pore size.

The third option uses fine needles to deposit small amounts of PRP across the area to be treated.

You can expect to see results within a number of weeks after the treatment. We recommend 1 treatment per month for the first 3 months, then 3 to 4 treatments per year to achieve and maintain desired results.

Before the procedure, please meet with Dr Soliman and our experienced practitioners to discuss what treatment option is best for you.

To begin, a topical anesthetic cream will be applied to the area to ensure you remain comfortable throughout the treatment.

A small amount of blood will be taken, preferably from the arm. The blood is then spun in a centrifuge to separate the red blood cells from the plasma.

Depending on what option you choose, the procedure will vary in steps.

Overall, the plasma will be carefully deposited into the tissue resulting in a restoration of volume and collagen growth.

Preparation

Inform Dr Soliman of any prescriptions and over-the-counter medications you are taking before the procedure.

Avoid medications that prolong bleeding such as aspirin, naproxen, ibuprofen or blood thinners. Paracetamol is suitable should you require any pain relief.

If you are seeking PRP to treat hair loss, wash your hair on the day of your treatment but refrain from using any hair products.

As PRP therapy involves drawing blood, it is important to eat a meal before your procedure to avoid lightheadedness.

Aftercare

Avoid washing the treated area for 48 hours post-treatment. After 48 hours, you can incorporate hair and skincare products back into your routine and continue with topical medications.

Cease the use of anti-inflammatory pain medication; your GP may prescribe an alternative pain medication that will assist in the healing process.

If you experience swelling or pain, please use a cold compress a few times a day for 10 to 20 minutes at a time to help decrease post-injection pain and swelling.

We also recommend that you avoid alcohol, caffeine, hot drinks and spicy food for 24 hours, as these may exacerbate bruising and swelling.

If you have received treatment for PRP, avoid excess sun exposure or solarium use for 24 hours.

What is PRP?
  1. PRP stands for Platelet Rich Plasma which comes from the patient’s blood. Platelets contain growth factors which stimulate cells to repair themselves and regenerate new tissue. Originally PRP, was used in orthopedics but since then it has been utilised in aesthetic medicine for rejuvenation and anti-aging.
What does it treat?
  1. PRP can be used to treat varying concern such as volume loss from weight loss or natural aging, hair loss, dark circles, stretch marks, fine lines, pores, acne scarring, dull skin and joint pain. Furthermore, it is an important part of any antiaging skin care programme.
Does it hurt?
  1. You may experience some discomfort during the procedure. PRP can be administered with needles or canula, however an aesthetic may be used prior to the procedure.
What should I expect after the treatment?
  1. Post treatment you may expect some swelling, slight bruises and possibly soreness in the treated area.
    • Avoid rubbing the injection site
    • Avoid lying down for at least 4 hours post treatment
    • Avoid strenuous exercise, and extremes of hot and cold for 48 hours post treatment
    • Avoid alcohol for 24 hours pre and post treatment as this can encourage swelling and bruising

    • Avoid facials, waxing, chemical peels and laser treatments for 10-14 days after treatment
When can I expect to see results?

After your initial treatments you may require maintenance treatments 2-3 times per year, depending on the quality of the client’s platelets.
What is involved during the treatment?
  1. In order to collect the PRP we take blood from the client’s arm which is then spun in a centrifuge to separate the PRP from the rest of the blood. The entire treatment can take 45-60minutes.
What should I be doing before the treatment?
  1. We recommend avoiding alcohol, smoking, fish oil, aspirin and other blood thinning medications for 48hours before the treatment.

‘I have La Sante to thank for making me feel normal again. After a 50+ weight gain in a matter of a few months, I couldn’t get it under control. I kept on working out in the morning before work and eating reasonable but had no energy and no improvement.

I first visited La Sante because my friend and I took their running deal HCG treatment. Words can’t describe how AMAZING I feel. I heartily thank the entire staff at La Sante for support in Weight Loss. They’re phenomenal!!’
