Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Injections at LAB Skin Clinic, Neutral Bay – Call 02 9170 4693
LAB Skin Clinic in Neutral Bay, performs hundreds of successful Platelet Rich Plasma injections each year. Platelet-rich-plasma injections are an exciting addition to an age-prevention regimen and a natural cosmetic enhancement for which a significant amount of worldwide scientific experience is available to support its effectiveness and safety.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) has long been recognised for its wound-healing properties in areas such as surgery and sports injuries, but now this revolutionary technology is being used as a safe, wholly natural and long-lasting approach to creating youthful-looking and rejuvenated skin.
Sometimes referred to as the ‘Vampire Lift’, ‘Angel Lift’ or ‘Slow Facelift’, PRP is a procedure, which consistently delivers excellent results – especially when used with concentrated growth factors. The PRP skin rejuvenation technique utilizes your own blood to repair damaged and ageing skin as well as regenerate tissue, muscle and bone… in fact, virtually any area of the body in which it is injected.
PRP is a versatile treatment and an amazing bioactive stimulator (not a filler), which increases collagen and elastin fibres to thicken, lift and firm your skin – making it plumper, more healthy and younger-looking. Results are exceptional and very worthwhile in your rejuvenation quest.
PRP treats almost every skin concern:
- Acne & mild acne scars
- Dark eye circles
- Dry, dull skin
- Enlarged pores
- Hair loss/restoration
- Neck banding
- Skin laxity (loose skin)
- Stretch marks
- Wrinkles and fine lines

So how does PRP work?
Platelet Rich Plasma treatments involve harvesting your blood cells to stimulate natural skin rejuvenation without the use of chemicals. A small amount (approx. 10-30ml) of your own blood is collected into a vial and placed in a centrifuge and separated; the heavier cells, such as red blood cells, drop to the bottom of the vial, and the platelet rich plasma (golden plasma) is left at the top of the vial. The harvested golden plasma is then injected back, into whichever area you wish to treat, to activate your skin cells; this is called the clotting cascade, which causes the golden plasma to stimulate and secrete growth factors into the treatment area – thereby causing them to multiply and form new tissue.
Your treatment is conducted in one seamless process by a qualified doctor and takes approximately 30 minutes to one hour and anaesthesia is not usually required. Normally clients will require between 3 to 4 sessions of PRP at monthly intervals. Reassessment after the last treatment will determine whether you have achieved the expected results or whether you require more sessions.
Ongoing maintenance at least once a year will help to keep your results peeked, although older clients will usually need maintenance treatments every 6 months. Younger clients may experience longer-lasting results – up to a year or maybe longer – and require less maintenance visits.
Because PRP is taken from your own blood, there are no risks of disease or allergic reactions. Some minimal post-treatment swelling, bruising and/or redness and possibly a mild headache may occur, which could last for up to 12 to 24 hours (in a few exceptional clients this may last for a few days), otherwise there is no downtime with this procedure.
Each individual responds differently to the treatments however most clients will normally see results within approximately 2-4 weeks and the skin will continue to respond and gradually improve in texture and tone over the next few months. Most clients will require between 3 to 4 treatments over several months.
Because PRP is a bio-stimulating treatment, some areas will respond better than others and there will be some variations between clients.
Pre & Post-Treatment:
Eat and drink as healthily as possible and avoid fatty foods, coffee, alcohol, anti-inflammatory drugs for at least 2 – 3 days before and after the treatment. For a few days following treatment, you should avoid excessive exercise.
How will PRP help me?
The most common treatment areas are the face, neck, décolletage and hands.
The best results are achieved in younger clients and older clients, who have cared for their skin, neither of whom smokes nor has chronic illnesses such as diabetes, heart, lung or kidney disease, auto-immune disease, or asthma. Areas of skin with fine lines and mild skin laxity will respond better than those areas with deeper wrinkles and are more aged. Older clients, aged from 60s and upwards, who are healthy will still respond to PRP but will require more treatments.
PRP has become very popular in Europe, Asia and the U.S. not only for skin rejuvenation but especially for peri-orbital (around the eyes) rejuvenation, which is traditionally a difficult area for non-surgical treatment. Fine lines in the lower eyelids are the result of slowly increasing skin laxity as a result of declining collagen and elastin. These lines become increasingly more noticeable as you age. Cosmetic injections are of limited benefit but PRP is really useful as it helps improve the texture and elasticity of thinning eyelid skin.
