How does Cellenis PRP work?
PRP is prepared by having a small sample of the patient's own blood, then separating from red blood cells (RBCs), leukocytes and platelet poor plasma (PPP) via centrifugation.
PRP is then collected and can be injected back into the treated site to promote a healing response, dermal stimulation and matrix re-modelling, leading to skin rejuvenation2. The entire preparation process is simple and only takes up to 15 minutes.
What are the benefits of Cellenis PRP?
This treatment may improve skin texture and tone, refines wrinkles and reduces scars such as acne or stretch marks while preserving a natural appearance2. Cellenis PRP can also be used to promote hair growth when injected into the scalp.
Visible results may take between 2-6 weeks and will vary between individuals. This variance depends on factors such as general health, age, diet, smoking and skin type3.
