Your skin is your body’s largest organ. Surprisingly, though, many people neglect to take care of it. Has your skin lost its glow? Is it looking dull? Have you noticed dark circles and puffiness around your eyes? Or, have you noticed gradually thinning scalp and facial hair?
The good news is, each of these problems can be solved using the Derm Lab’s Platelet Rich Plasma.
We’re proud to be of Australia’s first medical skin care specialists to offer this revolutionary treatment. Using world-first technology, coupled with the support of Australia’s best scientists, our Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) removes blemishes from problematic skin.
PRP is an advanced technology which uses a vital ingredient of the blood – platelets – to revitalise the skin and enhancing collagen and elastin production. This will give you healthier, younger-looking skin than you ever dreamed.
Previously, PRP has been used in orthopaedic and reconstructive surgery, as well as dentistry, to enhance appearance. Today, it’s the secret weapon in wound healing and cosmetic facial rejuvenation.
PRP contains a high concentration of growth factors, stem cells and platelets. When injected into the affected area, PRP will smooth and firm the skin, and stimulate the growth of collagen fibres (which keep your skin firm)
Most conventional skin treatments last for a short time, before wearing off. Unlike these treatments, PRP fights the effects of sagging skin and the signs of aging, by pumping essential collagen fibre your skin needs to function properly.
PRP is ideal for areas where fillers aren’t effective. And, for the best results, fillers can be used with PRP.
For optimum results, The Derm Lab are your trusted experts to deliver the most effective platelet-rich plasma Melbourne treatment. Our expert Melbourne team will help improve your skin elasticity and tone, at a time that’s convenient for you.
PRP (aka the Vampire Treatment) also works on weak or dead hair follicles, to treat hair loss, hair breakage and hair thinning. Your blood contains red blood cells, along with plasma – which transports hormones, nutrients and proteins throughout the body. Plasma is made up of white blood cells and platelets.
Rich in growth factors, platelets stimulate the hair follicles and hair roots, to ensure they function properly. Generally administered directly on the “bald spot”, the entire procedure takes less than 30 minutes.
Along with those suffering minor hair loss, we believe this treatment is extremely effective for people suffering androgenic alopecia (a condition in which the immune system directly attacks the hair follicles).
Depending on the extent of your hair loss, you should notice results within two to three months of treatment. To achieve maximum hair growth, you’ll need at least four PRP sessions.
No matter what skin or hair problem you are facing, PRP can help you with:
PRP is perfect for anyone who prefers a non-invasive, non-medical and natural approach to shedding years off their appearance, while enjoying the benefits of flawless, blemish-free skin.
It’s also the ideal treatment for people who suffer short- and long-term hair loss.
Unfortunately, PRP is not suitable for everyone. You should never try PRP treatment if you have any of the following:
Also, if you are trying to conceive, are pregnant or are breastfeeding, you are not a suitable candidate for this procedure.
Before performing a PRP treatment on any patient, our experts will access your past and current medical history to ensure it is safe for you to undergo this procedure.
Most people see some noticeable improvement within one to six weeks of treatment, while others may have to wait up to eight weeks to see results. The PRP procedure takes between 45 to 90 minutes, with minimal or no downtime.
PRP is an effective treatment for all skin areas. If you have any problems with the skin on your face, legs, neck, arms or other areas will benefit from this extraordinary treatment.
Also, you can rest assured that our expert team has the skills and knowledge to drastically improve your hair growth, using PRP. This is possible, because PRP stimulates dead and weak hair follicles to produce longer, fuller hair, while your hair continues to grow during the anagen phase (i.e. active hair growing phase).
We want to ensure you are as comfortable as possible. That’s why, before the treatment, we will administer a local anaesthetic and apply a numbing cream to the skin area. However, you may notice a slight tingling sensation and redness in the treated area for a few hours after the procedure.
Most patients report minimal discomfort, however, and (if necessary) easily hide the swelling underneath makeup.
PRP is an extremely safe and effective treatment if you’re searching for a natural, non-invasive treatment for all skin and hair problems. As your blood is used to produce PRP, there is absolutely no risk of side effects, hypersensitivity or allergic reactions.
This procedure is TGA approved, sterile systems are used, and highly skilled professionals with decades of experience handle the entire procedure, from beginning to end.
There are some minor side effects, such as redness and swelling on the treated area. However, unlike other skin surgeries which require a lot of downtime and an extended recovery period, PRP allows your body to tap into its natural healing ability.
This accelerates skin repair, while eliminating signs of aging and blemishes.
And, since your blood is being injected into the skin, rather than foreign ingredients, there is not chance of infection.
To ensure optimal results, follow these simple steps:
PRP is a powerful alternative to surgery to treat hair loss and skin blemishes while increasing collagen production in the skin’s dermis. And, it’s perfect for those who can’t tolerate surgical pain, as it’s less painful and has faster recovery time.
