Platelet rich plasma treatments are revered for their ability to rejuvenate and regenerate the complexion and cells. ENRICH Clinic uses the Angel PRP, a state-of-the-art technology which concentrates the platelets significantly more than other machines, delivering higher quality PRP treatments and outcomes. PRP treatments can be used for facial rejuvenation, hair loss and injury recovery.
Platelet rich plasma has been used in the orthopaedic realm for years, but its use in dermatology focuses on alopecia, facial rejuvenation and its healing properties. PRP uses a component of your blood (platelets) to regenerate and rejuvenate the skin and hair follicles. The treatment works by injecting stem cells and growth factors directly into an area, in order to stimulate growth and rejuvenation of cells. Most patients will require 2-3 treatments in order to see maximum results.

Platelet rich plasma – how does it work? PRP treatment Melbourne
PRP draws on the body’s own healing capabilities by using cells, or platelets, to regenerate and rejuvenate the skin and hair follicles. This offers cells in the area a boost, allowing them to perform more effectively.
PRP is suitable for:
- Improving the appearance of sagging skin, fine lines and wrinkles
- Acne scaring
- Plumping areas of the face that have lost volume over time due to the normal ageing process
- Refreshing skin tone
- Improving skin texture and firmness
- Targeting hair loss by stimulating under-developed and under-active hair follicles
- Treating post baby tummy
- Crepey skin in the eye or neck area
- Fine lines
A small amount of blood is removed from the arm, similar to a standard blood test. The blood is then placed in our state-of-the-art Angel PRP system centrifuge, which separates the white and red blood cells and plasma and platelets. Once separated, the platelets and plasma become platelet-rich plasma.
Yes, this is also known as the vampire facial made famous by Kim Kardashian. It has had quite the following but there is a small amount of downtime (a day or so) and the procedure does take about 1 ½ hours. It’s well worth the effort but probably not suitable the week of a big party or a hot date! All our injectables are performed by our experienced doctors and PRP is certainly one of those procedures.
