Cheshire Lasers Clinic offers a wide range of PRP Treatments.
What is PRP?
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is a non-surgical treatment that utilizes your body’s healing abilities to stimulate skin healing, repair and recovery. It has the power to trigger your body’s own tissue regeneration potential. It is a natural treatment that uses the platelets from your blood. When activated platelets secrete and release at least 7 different growth factors which enhance the natural healing processes. They also stimulate collagen growth to rejuvenate the skin, improve the blood supply to the tissues and can greatly improve skin tone and texture. It also reduces fine lines and wrinkles and can stimulate hair growth in the hair follicles.
PRP has been thoroughly investigated, and it is used for medical treatments. Doctors use PRP for nerve injury, tendinitis, osteoarthritis, cardiac muscle injury, bone repair and regeneration, plastic surgery and oral surgery. PRP also helps treat sports injuries in professional athletes to stimulate healing for skin wounds and burns.
What does PRP treatment involve?
This innovative technique involves centrifuging a small sample of blood to separate it into different components. Your practitioner will extract the PRP component from the sample and prepare it for injection.
Using a small sterile needle, your practitioner will inject the PRP in and around the treatment area.
Alternatively, some of our practitioners apply the PRP on the skin after microneedling. This creates lots of tiny channels in the skin due to microneedling, which allows the PRP to penetrate the tissues.
What types of PRP treatments are available?
At Cheshire Lasers, we use PRP on the face, neck, scalp, hands and other body areas for skin rejuvenation with sometimes astonishing results.
Treatment of the face with PRP has been called the vampire facial or Dracula facial on various reality TV shows such as Cheshire Housewives. Celebrities such as Kim Kardashian have had this treatment to rejuvenate their skin.

It is also used for the rejuvenation of intimate areas in men and women to rejuvenate the skin, which can help a variety of conditions such as skin dryness as well as reduce sexual function problems.
PRP for Hair Loss
The high number of growth factors in PRP will strengthen hair follicles and improve hair loss & thinning hair. For hair loss we recomend six treatments over 12 months. One every month for three months and then one every three months for nine months.
