PRP injections have taken the aesthetics world by storm because A: they are amazing and B: they offer a non-surgical solution to rejuvenate and regenerate your hair and skin.

This means PRP injections have the power to minimise the appearance of scars, wrinkles, and pigmentation, treat various skin conditions, as well as combat hair loss.

So join us and let’s talk about PRP injections and other aesthetic alternatives, on the off chance you were to deem PRP as not exactly your thing.

What Does PRP Stand For?

PRP stands for Platelet-Rich Plasma, and in a nutshell, it is a substance made by taking some of your blood, spinning it in a machine to get rid of the red cells, and keeping a concentrated mix that is packed with platelets (hence the name Platelet-Rich Plasma).

These platelets are particularly special because they are incredibly rich in growth factors, which help your body heal faster and regenerate tissue, thus making it the perfect magic potion for your dermis.

Where Can I Have PRP Injections Done?

You can have PRP injections administered at almost any beauty clinic in Maidenhead, Leicester, London, or in the UK, given that you go to a QUALIFIED healthcare professional/dermatologist/aesthetician who is worth their salt. 

Why Are PRP Injections SO Popular?

  • Natural: One of the key attractions of PRP therapy is its natural approach. Since the plasma used in your PRP injections is extracted from your own body, it reduces the risk of allergic reactions. If you are not a fan of introducing foreign substances into your body, this treatment may be a great option for you.
  • Versatile: PRP injections can be used in various areas of aesthetic medicine. It is extremely popular for facial rejuvenation more commonly referred to as the Vampire Facial), hair growth stimulation for alopecia, and for improving skin texture and tone.
  • Healing: Due to the high concentration of growth factors present in your PRP injections, it helps stimulate your body’s natural healing mechanisms, which can lead to faster recovery and the production of collagen for a healthy look and glow.
  • Safety: PRP injections are considered safe (as mentioned WHEN performed by a qualified healthcare provider/dermatologist/aesthetician), and since they involve using platelets from your own blood, it eliminates many safety concerns associated with other injectables like dermal fillers or botox.
  • Fast: You can expect your PRP injections to take around 30 minutes, and continue with your day-to-day chores almost immediately after your PRP treatment. What’s more, these injections are considered relatively painless and many patients can enjoy the benefits from their PRP injections for up to 2 years!

Aesthetic Alternatives

If the idea of injecting blood into your face makes you squeamish, then here are some fabulous aesthetic alternatives to help you achieve healthy-looking skin.

1. Fillers

Fillers are by far one of THE most popular treatments in aesthetic medicine. They help plump up the skin, smooth out wrinkles, and restore facial volume. They can also be used to turn thin lips into a luscious pout or to slightly alter the appearance of your nose.

2. Microneedling

This procedure involves using a device with teeny tiny micro-needles to create mini punctures in the top layer of your skin, which then triggers your body to create new collagen and elastin, that helps rejuvenate your skin. 

3. Chemical Peels

An aesthetic treatment as old as time, but not unchanged. Chemical peels have come a long to gently slough off dead skin to make room for new, rejuvenated, smoother, healthier skin, giving your face a fresher, brighter look.

4. Endosphere Therapy

Endosphere therapy involves massaging your face using a device fitted with numerous spheres to help refresh and tighten your skin, and target wrinkles caused by sun exposure, stress, and smoking. 

5. Carboxytherapy

Carboxytherapy involves injecting carbon dioxide gas into your skin to stimulate blood flow in order to increase skin elasticity. This fairly new, yet beloved treatment helps treat cellulite, stretch marks, skin laxity, dark circles, pigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles.

6. Radiofrequency (RF) Treatments

RF treatments use low-energy radiation to heat your dermis (the deep layer of your skin), without affecting the top layer of your skin. This heat stimulates new collagen and elastin production, from within which helps tighten, contour and improve your skin, and reduces the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.

7. HydraFacials

HydraFacials are amazing for deep-cleaning and intensely hydrating your skin to help tackle fine lines and wrinkles, uneven skin texture, dark spots, hyperpigmentation, dryness, congested pores, and acne. 

To Round Things Off

As with any aesthetic procedure, it is crucial to consult with a qualified professional when choosing the safest and most effective option for your skin type and aesthetic goals.

Never hesitate to ask your aesthetician all the burning questions you may have regarding PRP injections and whether it is the right treatment for you.
