The volume of blood is made from plasma, which contains red blood cells, white cells and platelets. Platelets are tiny cells which help your body to repair because of the proteins they contain, called growth factors. The growth factors in platelets help with tissue repair and stimulate collagen production. As we age we lose collagen and therefore PRP treatment is an effective treatment for rejuvenation and combating the signs of skin ageing.
PRP is also an effective treatment for hair loss as studies show that the growth factors in platelets stimulate hair growth in existing hair follicles, making hair appear thicker and fuller.
PRP is used in many medical fields, additionally for cosmetic purposes PRP is used in orthopaedics, dentistry, and general surgery to promote tissue healing and regeneration.
PRP treatment always starts with a consultation with a registered medical practitioner, to assess treatment area and determine patient suitability.
To commence treatment a small vial of blood will be taken from the arm, via a syringe. This blood is then placed in a centrifuge machine, specifically designed to separate the blood, leaving the PRP available to draw up for injection.
The plasma is then gentle injected into the skin or scalp through a series of small injections across the treatment area. The procedure time is around 45 minutes.
PRP is often called the Vampire Facial, due to the reinjection of blood into the skin. The skin will appear slightly bloody during treatment and it can be a little uncomfortable however the micro injections ensure the treatment is not painful and it very safe.
All treatment is performed in a sterile environment, with completely disposable equipment, by a registered nurse, in our CQC regulated clinic.
There will be redness in the treatment area and some swelling can occur. This will subside within 12-24 hours. A visible improvement should appear within weeks after treatment. Platelets injected through the PRP treatment continue to release growth factors for weeks after introduction, meaning results continue to improve in the weeks and months following.
PRP provides a natural rejuvenation, as the treatment uses nothing other than the patient’s own blood, there is no risk of allergy or adverse reaction. PRP is suitable for all skin types but should not be carried in when taking certain medications or on pregnant or breastfeeding women.
Treatment results can vary between patients. Results depend on the volume of platelets the
patient has in their own blood, and their own response to treatment. We recommend a course
of 3 treatments for most patients, and treatments should be spaced at a minimum interval of 4
Course of 3
