Plasma Brisbane

Over time, our bodies begin to reduce the rate at which collagen and elastin is produced. This may lead to signs of ageing such as fine lines, wrinkles, skin laxity and dullness of the complexion.

Platelet-rich Plasma (PRP) is a naturally based, non-surgical approach which aims to address these concerns and alter the characteristics of the skin.


What is PRP?

PRP is an injectable treatment that uses your body’s own growth factors to act on the appearance of the skin. PRP is extracted from your blood and injected into specific areas of the face or body with the aim of stimulating collagen and elastin production and cell renewal.

Your practitioner will perform a full assessment of your skin and prescribe a personalised treatment plan to achieve optimal results.

PRP Treatments Aim To

  • Increase the density and firmness of the skin
  • Stimulate collagen and elastin production
  • Reduce skin laxity
  • Improve skin texture
  • Reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Improve the complexion
  • Assist in remodelling of scars and stretch marks

The Procedure

An anaesthetic cream may be applied to your treatment area approximately 45 minutes prior to the procedure to ensure comfort. Your blood will be carefully drawn, enough to have ample PRP for the treatment and spun in a centrifuge to separate the PRP from the red blood cells. The PRP is then extracted and prepared to be injected into your skin. PRP is administered through small needles into the top layers of the skin. The application of PRP takes approximately 20 to 30 minutes, depending on the size of the treatment area. At Inigo Cosmetic, we use the V2 injector which is one of the only TGA registered injecting devices on the market. It features five to nine micro-needles that penetrate the skin at once, allowing for uniform depth and spacing of injections. After injecting, a healing recovery mask is applied and massaged with chilled globes. A serum is then applied to complement the results of the PRP treatment. With any cosmetic injectable treatment comes risks. You can expect to be slightly red, swollen, bumpy and bruised in the treatment area. These side effects are temporary and will subside within a week or two.

Results may be visible from two weeks post-treatment and may continue to improve over the next couple of months as new collagen and elastin is produced. The recommended treatment protocol involves at least three treatments every three to four weeks, followed by maintenance treatments every six to twelve months.

You may experience some minor discomfort during the PRP treatment, however application of topical anaesthetic to the area prior helps to reduce pain from the injections.

Platelet-rich plasma can be used on the face and body, the most commonly treated areas being the face, eye area and hands. PRP aims to stimulate collagen and elastin production, aiding in the treatment of:

  1. Fine lines and wrinkles
  2. Acne scarring
  3. Scarring
  4. Uneven skin tone and texture
  5. Dry and dehydrated skin
  6. Pigmentation
  7. Stretch marks
  8. Skin laxity

A PRP facial involves use of platelet-rich plasma and a skin needling device such as the V2 inector or Dermapen over the entire face, rather than a targeted area.

We offer a few different types of PRP treatments at Inigo Cosmetic. PRP may be injected into small areas of the face or body or needled into larger areas of the skin using one of our needling devices such as the V2 injector or Dermapen. To determine the most suitable treatment for your needs, we recommend first speaking to one of our experienced nurse or doctor injectors by booking in for an Injectable Consultation here.

We recommended booking a consultation with one of our Nurses or Doctors for a quote.

The recommended treatment protocol involves three treatments performed 3 to 4 weeks apart. After the initial course of PRP treatments, 1 to 3 additional sessions may be undertaken to maintain results.
