How many treatments are required?
This will depend upon the health and age of your skin. Normally it is advised to have 2 – 3 treatments 4 to 6 weeks apart.
How long do results last?
There is on-going improvement in your skin up to12 months after each treatment depending on the rate you grow collagen. It is suggested that you have follow up treatments at 12 months.
Are results immediate?
No. Swelling from the plasma will be visible at first. Once this has subsided you will not see much change at all. Over a few weeks the Platelets will stimulate the growth factors, which will assist in more collagen growth. Cosmeceutical and Light therapies can enhance the results.
