Patient Information PRP Frequently asked Questions
Platelets are a naturally occurring component of your own [autologous] blood and play an important role in wound healing and tissue regeneration. Platelet Rich Plasma [PRP] therapy is the process of isolating platelets from the blood and concentrating these platelets to much higher concentration levels than normal, through the process of centrifugation. The result is Platelet Rich Plasma [PRP]. PRP encourages collagen formation and improves blood supply to tissue, both of which are important factors in anti-aging therapies. Your skin texture will improve as the Platelet Rich Plasma stimulates new skin tissue growth.
A small sample of your own blood [approximately 20 – 40 ml], is centrifuged specifically to extract the Platelet Rich Plasma [PRP] in a safe, clinical manner and then this Platelet Rich Plasma [ PRP] is injected or applied in combination therapies.
Platelet Rich Plasma [PRP] contains high levels of tissue growth and regeneration factors which are vital to skin rejuvenation & repair. PRP is increasingly being recognised by specialist clinicians as a useful natural intervention to aid tissue growth and collagen stimulation.
Platelet Rich Plasma is your own unique [autologous] tissue and so you are using your own blood to repair and improve your skin tissue. Platelet Rich Plasma has been used in hundreds of thousands of procedures around the world for over 30 years, predominantly in maxilla-facial, orthopaedic and cardiac surgery.
Slight swelling and redness may be present after the procedure but this is normal and temporary and your specialist surgeon will provide you with appropriate treatment and care.
The Platelet Rich Plasma is processed under exacting clinical standards which all clinicians must adhere to when working with blood products and the processing of the blood is at ‘point of care’, next to the patient.
Each person is unique and the response to intra-dermal injections will vary, though adverse reactions are rare. Your specialist may use a topical anaesthesia before injecting the Platelet Rich Plasma [PRP]. You may feel a ‘tingling’ sensation after the procedure and there may be redness, slight swelling and bruising. These symptoms will disappear.
The procedure will take on average 60 mins.
Platelet Rich Plasma encourages tissue growth and improves blood supply to tissue, both of which are important factors in anti-aging therapies. Your skin texture will improve as new tissue cells grow and visible results may take 3-6 weeks. The results continue to improve over time months and last approximately 1 – 2 years. Best results are attained through 1 to 4 consecutive treatments.
We are all unique and so results will depend upon a number of factors including your overall health status, age, dietary variations, whether you smoke, as well as a number of other health factors, including your unique skin type.
You must inform your specialist if you are taking medication, including blood thinning [anti-coagulant] medication, undergoing steroidal, or any long-term therapies.
Depending upon the patient’s individual needs and treatment plan, PRP treatment can be repeated until the desired result has been achieved. Our experience shows that regular PRP treatment every 3 to 6 months can be very beneficial.
