Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy (PRP)

We're pleased to 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 are present in each of our PRP injections.

This treatment has become 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.

What is the PRP injection?

Our method of Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy in London and Kent is a natural, safe and highly effective way to combat the negative effects of injury, specific medical conditions and skin ageing.

Each PRP injection involves the extraction, processing and deposition of plasma-rich blood into various 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. This is due to the fact that the 4S PRP® centrifuge separates the concentrated platelets from red blood cells, which are discarded in favour of the growth factor-rich PRP solution. 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 actresses in the public eye have frequently cited Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy as an effective means of hastening recovery from injuries and rejuvenating the skin of the face, hands and neck.

As an effective treatment in both aesthetic medicine and orthopedics, 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 medical conditions can the PRP injection treat?

Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy can alleviate many medical conditions, including chronic ligament and tendon sprains that are resistant to conservative therapy.

Other medical treatment indications include:

  • Lumbar sciatic pain;
  • Tennis and golfer's elbow;
  • Osteoarthritis-related joint pains as well as joint dysfunctions;
  • Hamstring, ankle and knee sprains;
  • Nerve entrapment syndromes (for e.g., carpal tunnel syndrome).
  • 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

    Preparing a PRP injection is a simple 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. In cases of aesthetic PRP injections, a small syringe is used to deposit the PRP subcutaneously. Although it may seem painful, the PRP injection is a well-tolerated procedure.

    The number of injections needed is dependent on the amount of skin to be treated, or, in cases of injuries, the extent of the problem. 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 we treat injuries and medical conditions with PRP injections, a reduction in pain and an increase in mobility levels are often reported after a month to six weeks. 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 our skin rejuvenation clients, we expect the skin 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.
