This is a product that is produced from a small sample of the patients own blood and then reinjected in different target areas. Usually, only a small amount of blood is required, typically just around 50ml so this is a relatively minor and the extraction is very similar to a blood test nothing extreme.
This is then put into our state of the art in house equipment to separate into different segments one that is plasma rich in platelets and some other blood components, through the use of a centrifuge that spins the sample at high speed. Red blood cells and other less desirable components of the sample sink in the vial, while the plasma that is rich in platelets rises to the top of the vial. This segment is separated and processed for precision injection in the target areas using small precision injections as very little is needed in each injection in most cases.
This resulting solution can contain as much as 10x the platelet levels found in the original sample through this separation process and removing the less desirable blood components. Calcium Chloride is added to this separated plasma just prior to use activating what is referred to as the clotting cascade, which results in the platelets in the solution becoming active and secreting growth factors. A typical blood sample contains around 6% platelet concentration, while Platelet Rich Plasma can carry 90%+ platelet concentration.
All you need to know about PRP Injections
Platelets are part of your blood, these cells in your body play a role in the healing and clotting process. When there is an injury or break in the skin, your body releases proteins in response that results in platelets binding to the region where the damage has occurred to help the blood clot and stop bleeding from continuing unabated. As this clotting takes place, the platelets start to secrete growth factors which contribute to repairing the damaged area.
It is useful in skin rejuvenation especially for older patients, by having precision PRP injections across a broad or problem area it can improve the texture, feel and overall aesthetics of the skin even reducing the visibility of fine lines in some circumstances.
PRP injections can be used to improve the results of fat transfer procedures; this procedure is where some of your fat is removed and transferred to another region using liposuction. There is always a degree of fat that doesn’t survive this process, by adding PRP into this procedure the amount of fat that survives the transfer is often improved thanks to the addition of extra growth factors introduced by the PRP injections into the area with the fat transfer.
In the medical field, PRP has been used to accelerate the healing of injuries such as tendon injury, dental surgery, and are commonly sought by athletes trying to get back into their sport as quickly as possible or avoid surgical interventions where possible. In recent years it has found many uses in the cosmetic fields as well for such things as skin rejuvenation, hair loss, hair thinning, increased recovery from laser resurfacing.
