Dr Henna, KICHI's resident aesthetic doctor will start by smoothing numbing cream over your skin, before drawing a little blood and placing it into a centrifuge to isolate the platelets. These platelets contain growth factors, which are proteins that communicate calming commands to skin cells, encouraging that all-important healing response.
Once the plasma rich platelets have been extracted, they’re injected back into key areas of your skin, depending on where you want the plumping to take place. For extra hydration, moisture magnet hyaluronic acid can be mixed in with the platelets. You can also opt to swap injections with microneedling, which creates tiny punctures in the skin, allowing the PRP to penetrate deeper.
Any remaining plasma rich platelets will then be applied to your face. If you choose microneedling, this is the point where you start to resemble Kim K’s selfie. The pore-plumping cocktail will be expertly massaged in, at which point you head home and allow it to absorb overnight. This is a skin regeneration experience like no other.
