PRP is short for Platelet Rich Plasma. Our Doctor or Nurse will collect a small sample of your blood as you would normally conduct when you have your routine blood test at your doctor’s surgery. The blood is collected and placed in a special container. The container is then placed in a machine called a centrifuge where your blood is spun for approximately 15 minutes so it can separate your blood components. Under the watchful eye and guidance of The GP Dr James Maungour, our Registered Nurses with qualifications & experience in cosmetic injection applications conduct all the works in a professional practice
This is when we apply a numbing agent to your skin. We commence stimulating the area initially with a small hand held derma pen or derma roller that consists of many micro fine small needles that we use. This procedure makes micro wounds in the skin that tricks the body by thinking that there is an injury in that location, so the PRP that will be injected directly into that area will begin to do its job immediately.
The Platelet Rich Plasma has now been separated from your normal whole blood. The PRP that contains abundant growth factors and stem cells is now ready to be injected into your skin. We use the PRP which normally appears like a gold yellow clear fluid.
We have two processes for skin treatment package:
Immediately after the treatment the highly concentrated PRP that was injected in the skin begins to work to bring vital nutrients to that area, kick starting the existing cells to do their job. By separating the PRP from your red and white blood cells we essentially are able to take the pure form of your bloods best of the best nutrients and healing properties and inject it into the area we want to promote healing.
