Dr Garsing Wong, trusted international speaker and cosmetic physician, is one of the first doctors in New Zealand to utilise PRP®, Platelet Rich Plasma Skin Rejuvenation Therapy which has been popularised overseas as the "Dracula Therapy". PRP uses your own blood to stimulate your stem cells in your skin to create new collagen and this can also be used to stimulate hair growth. PRP can be used as a stand alone treatment for hairloss, receding hairlines, and balding for men and women, as well as in conjunction with hair transplantation which Dr Garsing Wong offers in the first full time surgical suite dedicated for hair transplantation.
WHAT IS PRP® Platelet Rich Plasma "Dracula Therapy"?
PRP is not a dermal filler like the popular hyaluronic acid fillers as it does not give you instant results. Instead you can expect subtle results which improve with time giving you a long lasting result. PRP stimulates your skin to make your own collagen, giving you a more natural looking result. PRP Platelet Rich Plasma treatment consist of an average of three separate treatments over a few months.
It can be used for panfacial rejuvenation whereby most patients will experience an improvement in the quality of their skin. It can be used in areas which are more difficult to treat such as under your eyes, your chest of decolletage region and for horizontal neck lines.
Platelet Rich Plasma can assist with hair regrowth in a safe, natural way by stimulating your own stem cells to make your hair grow. Results of hair regrowth are usually seen after a few months. Repeat treatments are required. If medically appropriate, certain prescribed medications can enhance the result further.
