BENEFITS of PRP with HA Injections

  • Elasticity: This is the best treatment to restore elasticity as it accelerates the production of collagen, an essential protein found in skin that provides support and structure to your skin.

  • Reduction of fine lines and wrinkles: Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy (PRP) has powerful healing properties and regenerates skin tissue to restore volume and reduce skin laxity. It also boosts collagen production.

  • Hydration: Hyaluronic Acid (HA) delivers an immediate hydrating boost, leaving skin firm, plump and radiant while also ensuring sustained hydration of skin cells in the long term.

  • Skin texture and tone: PRP with HA is suitable for all skin types (even the most sensitive) and refines skin texture to create a more even-toned complexion

  • Combined Benefits: PRP, together with HA, is an excellent option to rejuvenate your skin from the inside out with proven long-term results!

The regenerative abilities of PRP paired with the hydrating effect of HA restore elasticity, accelerate skin repair and achieve a vibrant, youthful look  

At The Otto Clinic we have specialised in Platelet-rich Plasma Therapy (PRP), also known as the Vampire Facelift, for skin rejuvenation and hair loss since 2006.  PRP is a highly effective treatment that stimulates the body's healing response and generates collagen. As the name suggests, PRP consists of two key components: platelets and plasma. Platelets provide essential growth factors that repair damaged tissue, while plasma contains a mix of nutrients, vitamins, hormones, growth factors, and proteins that are vital for new tissue generation.  Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy is a proven skin rejuvenation treatment that achieves visible, long-lasting results. 


What Is PRP combined with HA?


What is Hyaluronic Acid?

Hyaluronic acid is one of nature's amazing ingredients! It is the main ingredient in most dermal fillers on the market today and is considered to be an extremely safe filler.  It also occurs naturally in our skin and is known for its unique ability to hold moisture. Acting like a sponge, it attracts and retains water molecules to create instant volume and lift, plumping up skin and smoothing lines and wrinkles. This leads to improved contouring and reduction of deep lines while skin is hydrated and moisturised.


Why are PRP and HA so successful when combined?


The combination of PRP and HA boosts their individual benefits to offer a highly effective anti-ageing treatment. In the short term, HA immediately volumises and moisturises skin, while PRP heals damaged cells and triggers the growth of new skin cells over a period of 3-6 months. The new tissue growth surrounds the hyaluronic acid so that the volume effect created by the HA lasts for longer, and equally, skin cells remain hydrated for longer.  Furthermore, hyaluronic acid improves the activity of several molecules contained in platelet-rich plasma to intensify the regenerative action of PRP. The treatment addresses a host of issues - patients can expect visible improvements in skin texture, dryness, sagging, loss of contour, fine lines, wrinkles and overall appearance.  In short, this treatment is an investment in future-proofing your skin as it slows the ageing process.

How Do PRP with HA Injections Work?

The Technique:

Step 1: Patient's blood is collected and spun through a centrifuge to separate the platelets and plasma from the red blood cells.

Step 2: Hyaluronic Acid is added to the platelet/plasma formulation.

Step 3: PRP with HA is injected into the specific points on the patients' face - injection points will be decided at the initial consultation depending on the skin issues presented.

What You Need to Know

PRP with HA FAQs
  • How Does PRP Work?
    Once the consultation and patient case study phase is concluded, a small amount of blood is taken and passed through a centrifuge system to separate the platelets and fibrin from the red blood cells – this concentrate, known as the matrix, is then injected into the areas to be treated. Note the plasma remains alive in the treated area for approximately 7 days but the activity of the stem cells in the plasma continues working for about 3 months.
  • Is PRP Therapy Safe?
    Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy is the safest non-invasive procedure available in the market today because you are using cells from your own body therefore there can be no allergic reaction: • It’s the only treatment of this type that can be injected into the tear trough of the eye without fear of any adverse effects • No surgery/no anaesthetic • Completely safe and natural – no synthetic substances/no danger of allergic reactions or infections • Walk-in Walk-out procedure – minimal disruption to your life Above all, the treatment is virtually painless and patients can look forward to a fast recovery.
  • Where Can PRP Be Used?
    Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy can be used on the face, neck, hands and all over the body with excellent results: skin is re-plumped and rejuvenated; fine lines and wrinkles are reduced; skin contours are redefined to create a youthful, radiant bloom; skin is stimulated by the growth factors in the plasma to repair and rejuvenate itself. It is hugely successful in the treatment of areas such as: crow’s feet “crepey” eyelids acne scarring/scars in general wrinkles/fine lines around nose, lips, mouth sagging skin in the neck area stretch marks burned skin
  • What Does PRP Feel Like?
    Prior to treatment, the patient’s skin is numbed with a topical anaesthetic and plasma is then injected into the Upper Dermis – the patient may experience a sensation of tiny pin pricks but feedback from clients indicates that this sensation is not at all uncomfortable.
  • What After-Care Is Needed?
    Patient will experience slight swelling but this will usually disappear in 24 hours. In cases where patients are prone to bruising easily, slight bruising may be evident, but as with any other filler, this is easily covered with make-up.
  • How Long Will The Effects Of PRP Last?
    In cases where skin is not deeply wrinkled/badly scarred or burned, follow-up treatments are recommended on an annual basis. In the case of damaged or quite wrinkled skin, a follow-up treatment is advised for 3 months later and thereafter on an annual basis.
  • Who Is Not Suitable For PRP?
    Because you are using cells from your own body, there can be no allergic reaction, therefore PRP is suitable for most people however if you have any concerns or specific medical conditions, we will advise you during the pre-treatment consultation whether the procedure is safe for you or not. Following consultation, the patient is advised on dietary changes required to aid the process e.g. increase intake of Vitamin C and water, and avoidance of stimulants such as coffee, alcohol and cigarettes. Patients will experience much more effective and satisfactory results if they follow these guidelines.
  • Are There Any Side Effects?
    No unnatural substances are used, therefore there is no danger of adverse/allergic reactions because you are using your own cells.
