Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) has emerged as an innovative technique in the field of aesthetic medicine.

What is PRP?

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) is a concentrated autologous preparation of platelets and the linked growth factors in a small volume of plasma. Platelets are a natural source of growth factors in their natural and biologically-determined ratios.

What do Platelets do? 

Platelets release growth factors which regulate the healing cascade by signalling to surround cells to repair damaged tissue and regenerate new tissue. Key growth factors associated in this process include but are not limited to:

  • Platelet-Derived Growth Factor (PDGF)
  • Transforming Growth Factor group (TGF)
  • Epidermal Growth Factor (EGF)
  • Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor (VEGF)
  • Fibroblast Growth Factor (FGF)
  • Keratinocyte Growth Factor (KGF)

Regenerative aesthetic medicine is the future of aesthetics.

Regenerative aesthetic medicine encompasses a range of treatments and procedures that promote tissue regeneration, collagen synthesis, and cellular renewal. These therapies leverage the body's own regenerative capabilities, often utilising biological substances derived from the patient's own body, such as platelet-rich plasma (PRP), stem cells, or growth factors.

PRP is a natural therapy

Safety and Side Effects: PRP therapy is generally safe, as it utilises the patient's own blood, minimising the risk of allergic reactions or transmission of infectious diseases. Common side effects include mild swelling, redness, or bruising at the injection site, which usually subside within a few days.

Regenerative aesthetic medicine offers innovative approaches to cosmetic enhancement, focusing on long-term improvements and natural-looking results. However, it is essential for healthcare professionals in this field to have appropriate training and understanding of these techniques, including patient selection, safety considerations, and potential risks and benefits. By integrating regenerative therapies into their practice, doctors and nurses can provide patients with advanced aesthetic solutions that promote tissue regeneration and overall well-being.

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy offers a valuable tool in aesthetic medicine, harnessing the body's natural healing abilities to achieve rejuvenation and tissue regeneration. With proper training and understanding of its applications, doctors and nurses can provide safe and effective PRP treatments, leading to enhanced patient satisfaction and optimal outcomes in aesthetic medicine.

PRP revitalise the skin with regenerative medicine.

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy has gained significant popularity in the field of aesthetic medicine due to its regenerative and rejuvenating properties. PRP is a concentration of platelets derived from the patient's own blood, containing growth factors and bioactive proteins that promote tissue repair, collagen synthesis, and angiogenesis.

Mechanism of Action

PRP works by releasing growth factors and cytokines when injected into the target area. These factors stimulate cell proliferation, collagen production, and tissue remodeling, leading to improved skin texture, elasticity, and overall rejuvenation. Additionally, PRP promotes angiogenesis, which enhances blood supply and nutrient delivery to the treated area.

Applications in Aesthetic Medicine

  • Facial Rejuvenation: PRP can be used as a standalone treatment or in combination with other modalities like microneedling or dermal fillers. It improves skin texture, reduces fine lines and wrinkles, and enhances overall facial appearance.
  • Hair Restoration: PRP therapy has shown promising results in stimulating hair growth and thickening in patients with androgenic alopecia (pattern baldness) or hair thinning. It promotes the proliferation of hair follicle cells and increases blood flow to the scalp.
  • Scar Revision: PRP can be used to improve the appearance of acne scars, surgical scars, and stretch marks. It stimulates collagen synthesis and remodeling, leading to smoother and more even-textured skin.
  • Wound Healing: PRP has been utilised in chronic wound management, including diabetic ulcers and non-healing wounds. It accelerates tissue repair, reduces inflammation, and enhances the formation of new blood vessels.
