PRP, or platelet rich plasma, is an advanced treatment in aesthetics and regenerative medicine.
It has become popular over recent years with celebrities and those who value a natural facial rejuvenation treatment.
Also known as the ‘vampire facial’, PRP uses the body’s own blood to derive platelet rich plasma which is then used to simulate skin cell growth and renewal.
PRP works by stimulating the skin’s stem cells to regenerate new collagen and elastin and remove damaged skin cells in a natural way. This results in rejuvenation of the skin and helps to slow and reverse the signs of ageing.
There are many PRP systems on the market today, many of which are used for both medical and cosmetic indications. The variety of PRP systems marketed mean there are differences in quality and results.
Our choice of PRP system is Emcyte PurePRP. Emcyte PRP is the leader in medical aesthetics and results in a higher concentration of platelets which release growth factors and stem cells; resulting in the formation of new connective tissue.
As PRP uses the patient’s own blood the end result is natural and without risk of significant side effects.
Platelet rich plasma contains platelets which contain growth factors. These are responsible for wound healing, tissue regeneration, collagen production, vascular re-growth, connective tissue formation and bone mineralisation.
Platelet rich plasma is used for regeneration and rejuvenation in facial aesthetics, cosmetic surgery, reconstructive surgery, orthopaedics and wound care.
Research into PRP is ongoing and it is an exciting and emerging field of medicine.
