Plasma Rich Platelet


Plasm Rich Platelet therapy is a new form of regenerative medicine that utilises your own blood, where the platelet rich plasma component is extracted, concentrated and reintroduced to rejuvenate the skin. ​ Platelets are the key to the body’s ability to stop bleeding and repair damaged blood vessels and cells in the body. Platelets contain substances called growth factors that activate and rejuvenate cells in the body.

How it Works

Platelet Rich Plasma , or PRP, is blood plasma with concentrated platelets and other growth factors. The concentrated platelets found in PRP contain huge reservoirs of bioactive proteins, including growth factors and signaling proteins that are vital to initiate and accelerate tissue repair and regeneration. To prepare PRP , a small amount of blood is taken from the patient’s arm.


The blood is then placed in a centrifuge. The centrifuge spins and separates the platelets form the rest of the blood components. The entire process takes less than 15 minutes and increases the concentration of platelets and growth factors up to 600%. Using the patient’s own blood, specially prepared platelets are taken and re-injected into the affected area

Results

These platelets release special growth factors that lead to tissue healing. By using the concentrated platelets, we increase the growth factors up to eight times which promotes temporary relief and stops inflammation. PRP injections actually heal the area over a period of time. This can be anywhere from one to three months.

The number of injections performed depends upon the severity and the type of condition being treated. Age also seems to have an effect on the number of injections given. Typically, younger people generally need fewer injections for the same condition than a person who is older.

After the injection is given, there is usually a marked increase in pain for anywhere from 5-10 days. Tylenol and possibly a mild narcotic usually handle this pain. The pain may start up again only later to go away.

A good analogy is that of a roller coaster where the initial few days are like the big drop on the roller coaster than the remaining few days are like smaller dips on a roller coaster
