Facial Rejuvenation in Ipswich


Blood plasma and platelets carry growth factors, which are proteins that induce and accelerate tissue repair and healing. By activating platelets, they release growth factors that act in the target tissue where the PRGF has been applied.

As we are using plasma from the patient it is completely biocompatible and there is therefore no possibility of immunological reactions. There are no foreign fillers or toxins such as botox.

PRGF Actions:

  • Stimulates natural production of hyluronic acid which gives the skin more body.
  • Stimulates secretion of collagen and elastin which generates greater firmness and consistency in the skin.
  • Hydration of skin.
  • Increased luminosity and luster of skin.
  • Note that PRGF will remove small superficial wrinkles but not deep wrinkles.


Normally three separate sessions are required 3–4 weeks apart to gain the best results.

It involves taking blood which is then separated out. An anaesthetic cream is placed over the facial tissues that are to be treated for up to 1 hour. Local anaesthetic injections may be needed around the lip/chin area.

The plasma is then injected into the facial tissues and we allow 15–20 minutes of recovery time after.

It is quite likely that you will not notice any great change after the first procedure and sometimes after the second. It is a cumulative effect and that is why normally we recommend three sessions.

Adverse Effects

There are no adverse effects of the material as it is totally natural.

Taking of blood can cause some localised bruising. If you have difficulty giving blood this may need to be discussed first.

The face can be sore afterwards and we recommend cold compress.

No makeup should be worn before the procedure and afterwards for 24 hours.
