Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy is a natural treatment which reinjects platelets and growth factors into your body, which have been gathered from a sample of your own blood.

The technique makes use of the plasma (the liquid portion) of your blood, separating it from the suspended red blood cells, and injecting the platelets and their associated growth factors to help rejuvenate body tissues. Platelets are an important part of wound healing and tissue repair and this technique makes use of their natural ability to restore tissues. 

A small amount of blood is drawn from the patient into a sterile tube in the exact same manner as a standard blood sample. The tube containing a patient’s blood is placed into a centrifuge and spun to separate the plasma and platelets from the other blood components. After a few minutes, the plasma and concentrated platelets are removed from the same tube and re-introduced into the patient at the site of injury, scars, skin, obvious lines or wrinkles. Using a small sterile needle, you inject the PRP in and around the desired site.

This produces a healing response in the body to repair and rejuvenate an area.

PRP also contains pluripotent stem cells that have the potential to develop into several different skin types to replace those that may be lacking in number, or function. It also contains Growth Factor Proteins (cytokines) that can stimulate cells to proliferate and repair tissue, increasing volume, blood supply, and rejuvenating tissue structure and function. 

It has been used safely in many therapeutic areas such as sports medicine, dentistry, orthopaedics, hair loss and cosmetic medicine.  The treatment lasts 30 to 45 minutes and can be applied to any skin type or colour.
