Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy is a technique which utilises your body’s own growth factors and re-targets them to a specific area of concern like stretch marks, scars and wounds that need to heal. It encourages the repair and regeneration of the skin.
While PRP is beneficial, it is important to know that not all PRP products are the same. The specific healing properties and overall effectiveness of different brands of PRP can vary greatly thanks to the different equipment and processes used to create PRP gel.
PRP therapy produces long-lasting effects with very little chance of allergic reaction, simply because the platelets we use come from your own blood. This is a highly effective treatment for repairing the skin and reducing signs of damage like stretch marks and scars.
This treatment is idea for men and women who have scars or stretch marks, or whose wounds are healing too slowly.
PRP involves extracting platelets from a sample of your own blood. The first stage of the treatment involves taking a small sample, which we place in a centrifuge, a machine with a rapidly rotating container that uses the force of gravity to its content) to spin and separate red blood cells from platelet-rich plasma.
Using a very fine needle, the platelet-rich plasma is then injected back into the area of concern. There, your own platelets release growth factors triggering the surrounding cells to proliferate, stimulating repair and regeneration.
We can give injections can be given multiple times in multiple locations to give you an overall improvement to the area.
Because this treatment uses your own natural platelets, there is no chance of rejection. We spin your blood inside a closed sterile system with no risk of contamination. The system is widely used in major teaching hospitals to treat burns and for speedier wound repair.
