We offer the most advanced method of Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy in London and Kent using the latest 4S PRP® machine, which ensures that the highest possible concentration of growth factors possible are concentrated in our PRP injections.
Hugely popular in both aesthetic and regenerative medicine over the course of the past few years due to its ability to stimulate the process of stem cell repair in the skin and body, PRP injections remain at the forefront of the current trend in positive age management.
What is the PRP injection?
Our method of Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy in London and Kent is natural, safe and highly effective. It's possible to combat the negative effects of injury, specific medical conditions and photo ageing through the careful extraction, processing and intradermal deposition of plasma-rich blood into different parts of the face and body.
Known for their clotting ability, platelets contain hundreds of proteins known as growth factors, which play a crucial role in the body’s ability to heal itself. Platelet-rich plasma contains five to ten times more growth factors than normal blood, however. This is due to our 4S PRP® centrifuge's ability to separate the concentrated platelets from red blood cells, which are subsequently discarded after centrifuge, leaving only the growth factor-rich PRP solution for injection. These growth factors initiate tissue repair and attract the body’s own stem cells to areas of damaged tissue in order to both fortify and expedite the regenerative process.
Sports personalities, celebrities and public figures frequently cite Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy as an effective means of hastening recovery from injuries and of rejuvenating ageing skin of the face, hands and neck.
Given its effectiveness as a treatment for a number of indications, we offer Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy in London and Kent for sports injuries and as part of physical therapy programs, as well as for aesthetic skin rejuvenation.
What are the aesthetic benefits of the PRP injection?
The aesthetic benefits are manifold. Aside from stimulating the production of collagen, the PRP injection rejuvenates the tone, texture, and clarity of the skin. Other benefits include:
- Subcutaneous volume restoration;
- Reduction of acne scars;
- Intradermal skin rejuvenation;
- Reduction in fine lines;
- Improvement in skin discolouration;
- Stretch mark reduction.
One of the benefits of undertaking Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy in London or Kent is that the treatment can be combined with our other aesthetic IV and micro-injection procedures in order to maximise results.
The treatment process
PRP injection therapy is a straightforward and relatively fast process. Initially, a small amount of blood is drawn before centrifuging this in our gold standard 4S PRP® machine. The PRP is then injected into the injured tendon, muscle, ligament, joint or disc with a fine needle. For aesthetic PRP injections, a small syringe is used to deposit the PRP subcutaneously. Although this sounds painful, it's important to emphasise that the PRP injection is a well-tolerated procedure and does not always necessitate multiple needle insertions.
The number of injections needed depends on the amount of skin that needs to be treated, or, in cases of injuries, the coverage of the affected area. With aesthetic PRP injections, we use a micro-injection technique, whereby a small amount of PRP is deposited at regular intervals directly under the skin.
What kind of results can I expect from Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy?
When injuries and medical conditions are treated with PRP injections, improvements are often reported. To be on the safe side, restraint from certain physical activities including rigorous exercise and heavy lifting is advisable throughout this period.
When we perform Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy in London and Kent for skin rejuvenation, we expect any treated areas to be mildly swollen and flushed for up to seventy-two hours. Mineral makeup and anti-inflammatory topical products may be applied throughout the first five days. After the first week has passed, you will notice significant improvements and at three weeks, you will appreciate a remarkable difference in the quality of your skin. Results typically peak at three months and retain for at least one year.
Single treatments are possible, although a course of six treatments is recommended.
