What is PRP?
Platelet Rich Plasma
PRP is a brand new natural regenerative treatment, due to launch in spring 2021 at SkinViva, Manchester.
PRP stands for Platelet Rich Plasma. Using advanced processes and technology, we prepare a highly purified sample of your own blood, then deliver the highly potent plasma back to the skin, where it releases powerful healing and regeneration agents. This stimulates the skin’s renewal processes and can achieve remarkable results in improving the condition and appearance of your skin.
PRP is a versatile and credible medical treatment which is used for a variety of applications including healing wounds and burns. It is also used in sports medicine and orthopaedic treatments.
At SkinViva, we offer the treatment for improving the skin. It is the perfect accompaniment to our popular cosmetic injections and can also be used on its own for clients who want to pursue natural skin improvement, giving a healthy, refreshed looking younger glow and helping to tackle the signs of ageing.
We also offer PRP hair treatment that can be very effective in promoting better hair growth and retention through stimulating the scalp and follicles.

Got a Question?
The application or injection of PRP is not usually too painful, although much depends on the area being treated. We can use a local anaesthetic or numbing gel if required.
In addition, the skin loses some of the the natural hydration provided by lipids (fatty substances), oil and sweat.
The complexion and texture can change over time, so skin becomes thinner as the underlying fat layer that keeps young skin smooth and supple tends to diminish over time.
Sun exposure can accelerate the ageing process, weakening blood vessels and causing pigmentation problems such as age spots on the face, chest, hands, arms and shoulders.
PRP treatment works to regenerate the skin by stimulating its own renewal mechanisms, thus countering some of the more common signs of ageing and promoting healthier skin.
Results are gradual and natural. We'd expect the results to develop over 4 weeks following your treatment.
Adverse reactions are very rare as there are no chemicals or toxins involved, only your body's own resources.
Clients who have a poor skin base line to start with, may experience exfoliation of the top layer of the skin after a few days as new fresh skin takes its place. Occasionally, and dependent on skin type, small bumps may develop and then soon disappear, in the fine skin area below the eyes. This is usually a collection of new cells (keratinocytes) at the injection needle site. Further proof of how your body’s growth factors are stimulating new skin development.
- Improve blood supply
- Stimulate oil glands for better natural hydration
- Stimulate new fibrocytes to produce more skin firming collagen
- Stimulate growth of new skin cells to thicken and smooth the skin.
- Stimulate new skin tissue formation through growth factors in PRP attracting stem cells
Your clinician will check that this treatment is completely safe and suitable for you, taking into account any relevant medical issues or history.
