Frequently Asked Questions

What is Regen PRP®?

Regen PRP® is a world leading system for the preparation of PRP developed by RegenLab of Switzerland. Regen PRP® is an approved system that has been used to successfully treat fine lines worldwide since 2008.

What does the treatment involve?

Preparing Regen PRP® is a quick and easy process. Blood is collected from you in 1-2 specially designed tubes which are then centrifuged for 5-10 minutes. During centrifugation, a patented gel within the tubes isolates PRP from other unrequired cells within the blood. Regen PRP® is then ready for application. Depending on the indication, it can be applied:  

+ As multiple small superficial injections
+ As deeper injections using a type of blunt needle called a cannula
+ Topically in combination with other treatments

Is it safe?

Because Regen PRP® uses your own blood, the risk of immunological reactions or contamination with transmissible diseases is eliminated.

Results of Regen PRP® treatment:

+ Improved skin colour, elasticity, tone and thickness
+ Remodelling of the collagen fibres
+ Long-term smoothing of fine lines and wrinkles
+ Faster healing following aesthetic treatments e.g. laser skin treatment and dermal needling

What's the downtime?

Allow 2 – 7 days for bruising and swelling (from injections)
Allow 2 – 7 days for redness, dryness and flakiness (from needling)

How does it work?

Direct injection of Regen PRP® into the skin supports and helps accelerate the process of tissue regeneration and repair. Regen PRP® contains fundamental growth factors released by activated platelets to help initiate the tissue regeneration process by:

+ Stimulation of new collagen production
+ Stimulation of angiogenesis, the formation of new blood vessels
+ Induction of mesenchymal stem cell division and differentiation
