PRP or Platelet Rich Plasma is a popular range of treatments that use your own growth factors to boost healing and it’s available exclusively in Hawke’s Bay at Peak Appearance.

So how does it work?  A couple of mls of your own blood are extracted and spun in a centrifuge to separate the plasma (the fluid) from the red and white blood cells.  The concentrated plasma, which is rich in platelets – the part of the blood rich with growth factors – is injected into your face or problem area through a series of tiny injections.  PRP treatment produces a rejuvenating and tightening effect on your skin, giving it a healthy youthful glow and significant repairing of lines, wrinkles and sun damage.

At Peak Appearance PRP treatments are performed by experienced cosmetic doctor Dr Danielle Waxman and registered cosmetic nurses Lara Molloy and Ashlee Wilson.
