What is Platelet Rich Plasma(PRP)?

A Platelet Rich Plasma treatment, or PRP therapy, is sometimes known as the ‘Vampire’ therapy. The non-surgical therapy involves drawing blood from a patient’s body – similar to a blood test – and then separating the platelets with a machine. The platelets are then re-injected into the area of the body that requires treatment.

Blood platelets help the body repair by stimulating skin cells to create new tissue. It increases collagen production and ultimately improves skin tone. In comparison to other methods, a Platelet Rich Plasma(PRP) treatment is known to be one of the safest in the market.

How does Platelet Rich Plasma(PRP) work?

The human blood contains 1% of platelets and plasma mainly responsible for stopping the bleeding of a wound. However, platelets play a larger role than just clotting blood. Human platelets are what the body needs to help in the healing process. As platelets are rich in connective tissue growth and healing factors, the body naturally delivers platelets to an injury to initiate repair. And thus why the PRP therapy is effective.

By injecting the healing and growth factors of platelets into damaged areas – commonly the skin, ligaments, tendons, and joints – the body will naturally initiate the repairing process. When a maximised, concentrated amount of platelets are injected into the body, it automatically accelerates the healing process. A Platelet Rich Plasma treatment is known to be effective as it uses the body’s natural substance and ability to self-repair.

How is Platelet Rich Plasma(PRP) performed?

First, a vial of blood is drawn from the patient similar to a blood test. The patient’s blood is then spun in a centrifuge for a few minutes at a pre-calculated speed. By spinning the blood, the platelets are separated from the red blood cells. After which, the concentrated platelet – which rises to the top of the vial – will be extracted and re-injected into the skin. Minimal discomfort may be experienced during the entire treatment, and the option for an anaesthetic is available.

How many treatment sessions are needed?
