Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy
ABOUT PLATELET RICH PLASMA THERAPY
Over the past few years, the PRP injection has proved to be a hugely popular treatment in aesthetic and regenerative medicine, and it remains at the forefront of age management due to its well-known ability to stimulate tissue repair. We offer advanced Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy in London using the 4S PRP® machine, which produces the highest possible concentration of growth factors, in order to rejuvenate the skin and body.
WHAT IS PLATELET RICH PLASMA THERAPY AND HOW DOES IT WORK?
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. The platelet-rich plasma in PRP injections contains five to ten times more growth factors than normal blood. This is due to our 4S PRP® centrifuge's ability to separate the concentrated platelets from red blood cells, which are subsequently discarded after centrifugation, leaving only the growth factor-rich PRP solution. This growth factor initiates tissue repair and attracts the body’s own stem cells to areas of damaged tissue, expediting the process of regeneration.
Our method of Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy in London is a natural, safe and effective means of combatting signs of ageing through the careful extraction, processing, and intradermal deposition of plasma-rich blood into different areas of the face and body.
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 for sports rehabilitation, physical therapy, and for aesthetic skin rejuvenation.
WHAT ARE THE AESTHETIC BENEFITS
OF THE PRP INJECTION?
As well as stimulating the production of collagen, each PRP injection improves the tone, texture, and clarity of the skin. Other benefits include:
Subcutaneous volume restoration
Intradermal skin rejuvenation
Reduction of fine lines
Improvement of skin discolouration;
Stretch mark reduction
One of the benefits of undertaking Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy in London is that the treatment can be combined with our other aesthetic IV and micro injection procedures in order to enhance the results.
THE TREATMENT PROCESS
During PRP injection therapy, a small amount of blood is drawn before centrifugation takes place in our gold standard 4S PRP® machine. The PRP is then injected into the 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, each PRP injection is well-tolerated.
The number of injections needed depends on the amount of coverage that needs to be given to the affected area. With aesthetic PRP injections, we use a 'point by point' 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?
Improvements are often reported after PRP injections. 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 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.
