Use your own plasma to improve the texture of your skin

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is a great, natural treatment for improving skin texture and elasticity, particularly around the eyes. It uses your own plasma as a seed to stimulate further production of collagen and naturally improve the look of your skin. Areas of skin that are treated with PRP feel firmer, appear tauter and regain that youthful glow. It has also been useful in the treatment of acne, scarring, skin tightening and hair loss

Quick facts about PRP

  •       Platelet rich plasma contains a high concentration of your own platelets + growth factors taken from your own blood.
  •       Injected under the skin or applied over the skin it can induce the formation of new collagen fibres to help skin texture.
  •       Often combined with skin needling
  •       Mild discomfort with minimal downtime*.
  •       Frequently used for acne scarring, facial rejuvenation, stretch marks and cellulite.
  •       Can be used in any area of the body, including around the eyes.

Plasma is rich in platelets, stem cells and growth factors; this is what stimulates your skin to produce more collagen. The stimulation of collagen helps to improve skin texture and acne scarring while at the same time tighten the skin.

Before explaining the practical uses of PRP, it is important to describe the biological basis of the technique to better understand how PRP works;                                      

Platelets are cells in blood that are responsible for helping to clot the blood, and for the synthesis and release of growth factors. When there is an injury to the skin (and blood vessel walls), proteins are released that cause circulating platelets to bind to the area and help create a blood clot to stop the bleeding. It is the clotting process that activates these platelets, and causes them to secrete growth factors to help repair the damaged area.

The use of PRP harnesses the properties of platelets to enhance wound healing and skin  rejuvenation.  PRP has approximately 4 to 7 times the normal concentration of platelets in whole blood, and at this level has been clinically proven to provide clinical benefits.  Whole blood contains approximately 94% red blood cells, 6% platelets, and less than 1% white blood cells. Platelet rich plasma contains 94% platelets, 5% red blood cells, and 1% white blood cells. It is the high concentration of platelets in PRP that increases the amount of growth factors delivered when placed or injected into a certain area.

WHAT CAN PRP BE USED FOR?

PRP has been used in medicine for accelerating the healing of injuries, either surgical or traumatic. Examples include use for; tendon injuries, orthopaedic surgery, dental surgery, and more recently cosmetic surgery. Many high profile athletes have used PRP to get ‘back into the field’ quicker or to avoid what would traditionally have had to be treated with surgery.

HOW ARE PRP TREATMENTS PERFORMED?

The first step in the PRP process is to obtain a small amount of blood. This is done in a similar manner to a blood test. The amount of blood required varies depending on the area that is treated, but typically, not more than 50mL of blood is required in most cases.

The next step is to separate and concentrate the PRP from the rest of the blood products (e.g red blood cells). This is done by placing the blood taken into special vials and spinning the vials in a centrifuge. The heavier cells, such as red blood cells, drop to the bottom of the vial, and the plasma that is ‘rich in platelets’ is left at the top of the vial. Once PRP is separated, it is extracted, into a syringe.
