Platelet Rich Plasma

This is a very new method of skin rejuvenation where there is the biostimulation of the cells of the dermis using an injection technique which uses the patient’s own bioactive platelet rich plasma (PRP). The aim of these injections is to stimulate and regenerate aged and damaged skin and subcutaneous tissues.We basically remove around 12mls of blood, centrifuge to remove the red blood cells and are left with Platelet Rich Plasma, which we then re-inject into areas to either rejuvenate or re-volumise.

Advantages of PRP therapy
Autology: your own blood
Tissue regeneration and rejuvenation
Safety: non-allergenic and free from concerns over transmissible diseases such as HIV, Hepatitis B & C, CJD and so on
Faster healing: no fibrosis formation compared to some long term fillers, for example
Easy to use: dermal and hypodermal injections require only one syringe and one needle
Convenience: PRP harvesting can be easily and quickly performed in our clinic.
A sterile and registered specific kit for the blood puncture, the preparation of the plasma and the materials is used.
