Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) in Limerick

What is Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)?

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is a groundbreaking treatment using your own blood platelets to rejuvenate and heal the skin. By harnessing the natural healing properties of your blood, PRP therapy promotes skin repair and rejuvenation, enhancing both volume and elasticity for a more youthful appearance. This treatment is highly effective in addressing a variety of skin concerns, including fine lines, sagging skin, and even promoting hair growth.

How does PRP treatment work?

PRP treatment involves extracting platelets rich in growth factors from a sample of your blood. These platelets are then reinjected into the skin, where they release growth factors that stimulate cell growth, repair damaged tissues, and increase skin volume. The treatment is particularly effective in boosting collagen and elastin production, essential for maintaining skin firmness and elasticity.

During our consultation, we’ll discuss your specific concerns and develop a treatment plan tailored to your needs.

Your PRP Treatment Journey


In the initial consultation, I conduct a thorough assessment of your skin and discuss any previous treatments you've undergone. This allows me to customize the PRP therapy to effectively address your unique skin concerns.


During PRP treatments, patient comfort is my top priority. To minimize any discomfort associated with the procedure, I typically use ice to numb the treatment area. This simple yet effective method ensures a more comfortable experience for my clients.


The PRP procedure involves drawing a small amount of your blood, which is then processed to concentrate the platelets. These enriched platelets are then injected back into your skin. The entire process, including preparation and treatment, takes about an hour.


Following the PRP treatment, you might experience minimal swelling or redness, but these usually subside quickly. I provide detailed aftercare instructions to ensure optimal healing and results.

Before PRP, avoid blood-thinning medications and supplements, stay hydrated, and maintain a healthy diet. Don’t consume alcohol or smoke for a few days prior to the treatment, and avoid sun exposure.

The results from PRP injections are not immediate. It typically takes several weeks to months to see the full effects, as the growth factors need time to stimulate the natural regeneration process.

PRP injections can cause mild discomfort, similar to any other injection. I use ice to numb the area, minimizing discomfort and ensuring a more comfortable experience for my clients.

Recovery from PRP is usually quick, with minimal downtime. Most patients return to their normal activities immediately, with only mild redness or swelling at the injection site.

PRP treatments can be repeated every 4-6 weeks, depending on individual needs and goals. Typically, a series of 3 treatments is recommended for optimal results.

After PRP, avoid touching or applying makeup to the treated area for a few hours. Stay hydrated, avoid sun exposure, and follow a gentle skincare routine. Avoid strenuous activities for a day or two.

To maximize results, maintain a healthy lifestyle, protect your skin from the sun, stay hydrated, follow a good skincare routine, and avoid smoking and excessive alcohol consumption.

After PRP, avoid sun exposure, strenuous exercise, saunas, and hot baths for at least 24 hours. Also, refrain from using harsh skincare products or undergoing other facial treatments for a few days.
