Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) uses your own body’s platelets to help boost collagen production in the skin. This treatment is ideal for fine crepey skin, especially under the eye area, or anywhere you have skin laxity. It’s also an excellent option for pigmentation skin rejuvenation and hair restoration.


Regen PRP is then injected into the skin using either multiple small, superficial injections or topically after treatments such as skin needling, laser or radiofrequency.

The regenerative results of PRP may take 1–6months.

PRP is a suitable treatment option for patients concerned about tired, laxed or pigmented skin; dark and crepey under eye skin; certain types of alopecia or general hair thinning; patients looking for a natural treatment; or those who have had a reaction to other treatments.

There is minimal downtime associated with PRP treatments.

Patients generally require 3 treatments spaced 4 weeks apart for optimal results.

Although uncommon, risks and side effects include pain, infection, no relief or worsening of symptoms.

The following medical conditions are a contraindication for use of PRP:

  • Critical thrombocytopenia (low platelet count)
  • Hypofibrinogenaemia
  • Haemodynamic instability (collapse)
  • Sepsis (infection)
  • Acute and chronic infections
  • Chronic liver disease

Anti-coagulation therapy (warfarin, dabigatran, heparin).

PRP treatments are well tolerated by patients due to the application of topical local anaesthetic prior to the treatment.

Standalone PRP treatments are $500, or $200 when combined with other non-surgical treatments such as infini or SkinPen.

PRP treatments begin with the collection of blood sample from a vein directly into a dedicated medical device. A separation procedure then extracts the Platelet Rich Plasma from the red blood cells.

The procedure takes around 60–90 minutes.
