PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) treatment is the injection of your own blood plasma, that is rich in platelets and fortified with vitamins and nutrients, into the skin.Platelets are key in the production of collagen and elastin which are the building blocks of firm and supple skin. Blood is taken from the patient and spun in a centrifuge in order to separate the platelets from the blood. This portion is then injected into the superficial layers of skin to stimulate collagen and elastin production and reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles. It is also used to target often difficult to treat areas such as the thin skin of the under eye area. PRP is also an excellent treatment to help reduce hair loss while supporting healthy and strong hair growth. PRP is microneedled into the scalp thus improving the blood micro-circulation in that area as well as delivering essential nutrients and vitamins to the dormant hair follicles.Book a Consultation

What our patients say...
Dr Fiona is a warm, friendly and truly skilled professional – I had Profhilo treatment with her and she made the whole treatment so seamless. She took such a detailed interest in my skin health and had a wealth of advice and suggestions to help me, not just focusing on the one treatment I came in for. The Profhilo itself was superb, she made the injections really comfortable and had such a lovely warm, caring personality – I couldn’t recommend her highly enough!

Dr Fiona is fantastic! Consultations are always relaxed and you never feel pushed into committing to a treatment. I totally trust her recommendations because she listens, talks through the options and her work is beautiful. People say I look ‘well’ but can’t tell I’ve had work done, until I point it out. Can’t recommend highly enough.
Amazing service from a doctor that clearly cares about her customers and knows her stuff. Always feel amazing after my treatments, thank you Dr Fiona!
Dr Fiona is a total professional in every way. She has an amazing eye for detail and takes her time to get everything perfect and as requested. I’m always delighted with the results, and her aftercare advice and support is brilliant. Highly recommended – I wouldn’t trust anyone else with my facial treatments!
Dr Fiona is honest, open and a font of knowledge about all things Skincare and aesthetics related. With one consult, she has me using high end skincare serums with Boots range moisturiser and my skin has not been better. Having someone who is not there to up-sell expensive treatments and skincare is a breath of fresh air.
I absolutely love my visits to see Dr Fiona McCarthy. She instantly put me at ease on my first session & was very clear with all the benefits and risks that came with the treatment I was receiving. She is so skilled with what she does & will never recommend something that isn’t necessary. I would absolutely recommend Fiona as I am always so thrilled with the results she provides.
Dr Fiona McCarthy is absolutely amazing and I can’t recommend her enough for her expertise, experience and overall genuinely lovely nature. Every visit is extremely positive and she’s helped me so much with not just my skin but my confidence and self worth
Highly recommended! A great clinician who delivers extremely natural results, very professional, kind, honest and so lovely .
