Platelet Rich Plasma injection or Plasma Rich Platelet (PRP) is a form of regenerative medicine that uses a person’s own blood to promote healing. PRP is made by taking a small sample of blood from the patient, spinning it in a centrifuge to separate the platelets from the other blood components, and then concentrating the platelets. The platelets are then injected into the area of the body that needs to be healed.

What are the benefits of PRP injection?

PRP has been shown to be effective in treating a variety of conditions even though we’ve most commonly heard of PRP or iPRF being used as part of the vampire facial protocol which tightens and rejuvenates skin. But the benefits are extensive, including:

  • Tendon injuries
  • Ligament injuries
  • Muscle injuries
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Hair loss – especially when combined with red LED light therapy
  • Skin rejuvenation – such as the vampire facial

As you can see above, this is why we often recommend PRP or iPRF combined with a deep tissue massage if you’re looking for impressive healing results.

PRP is also being studied as a potential treatment for a number of other conditions, including:

  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Diabetes
  • Chronic pain

This just shows the range and importance of this healing therapy on all aspects of our body.

How does Plasma Rich Platelet Injection (platelet righ plasma) work?/ What are platelet rich plasma injections?

PRP works by stimulating the body’s natural healing processes. Platelets contain growth factors, which are proteins that help to promote cell growth and healing. When PRP is injected into an injured area, the growth factors stimulate the regeneration of new tissues.But what does that actually mean in reality?

Imagine a wound as a battlefield where your body’s healing forces clash with the damage. When you get injured, your blood rushes to the site, delivering a cascade of nutrients, growth factors, and cells to repair the breach. Platelets, in particular, play a crucial role in this process. They act as first responders, initiating the clotting process and releasing a plethora of growth factors that stimulate cell proliferation and tissue regeneration.

PRP takes this healing potential to the next level. By concentrating the platelets and growth factors from your own blood, PRP delivers a powerful dose of healing agents directly to the affected area. This concentrated infusion of nutrients and growth factors speeds up the healing process, reducing inflammation, stimulating collagen production, and promoting tissue regeneration.

Plasma Rich Platelet Injection: All Natural

The beauty of PRP lies in its naturalness. Since it’s derived from your own blood, there’s no risk of rejection or allergic reactions. Your body recognises the concentrated platelets as its own healing agents and readily integrates this platelet concentrate into your healing process.

PRP’s platelet concentration versatility extends to a wide range of conditions, from musculoskeletal injuries and sports medicine to aesthetic treatments for skin rejuvenation and hair restoration. In each case, PRP harnesses the body’s innate healing abilities to promote faster, more effective recovery and restore optimal function.

So, when you consider PRP plasma injection, remember that you’re not just getting a treatment; you’re unlocking your body’s natural healing potential, empowering it to repair and rejuvenate itself with the very essence of life – your own blood.

What are the risks of PRP injection?

PRP injection is generally safe, but there are some potential risks to a  plasma injection, including:

  • Infection if you don’t keep the site of the plasma injection clean, but that won’t be an issue with us, we will thoroughly clean the area, before, after and give you instruction.
  • Bleeding, we are drawing your blood after-all.
  • Pain in theory is a side effect, but only in the sense that we’re puncturing your skin. It’s not pain, more temporary discomfort. And combine this with LED red light therapy and you’ll heal even faster. So, if you’re wondering ‘Do platelet rich plasma injections hurt?’ we would actually say no.

What is the vampire facial?Vampire facial iprf prp injection plasma rich platelet

The vampire facial is a popular cosmetic procedure that uses the platelet activation in a PRP injection to improve the appearance of the skin. The procedure involves injecting platelet plasma concentrate or platelet rich fibrin (iPRF) into the face to reduce wrinkles, improve skin texture, and add volume through the platelet derived growth factors.

What is the research on PRP injection and are platelet rich plasma injections safe?

There is a growing body of research that supports the use of platelet rich plasma therapy for a variety of conditions, as discussed above. You can see some of those we have used listed below.

Do platelet rich plasma injections work?

The benefits of PRP injections are diverse and depend on the specific treatment area. In orthopedics, PRP injections have shown promising results in accelerating healing and reducing pain in conditions such as tendonitis, arthritis, and ligament injuries. In dermatology, PRP injections can improve skin texture, reduce wrinkles, and promote hair growth.

Moreover, PRP injections are a safe and minimally invasive alternative to surgery for certain conditions. They have a lower risk of infection or adverse reactions since they use the patient’s own blood components. Additionally, PRP injections have shorter recovery times compared to surgical procedures.

In conclusion, Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) injections are a regenerative medicine which offer numerous benefits across different fields of medicine. From orthopedics to dermatology, this innovative treatment has proven its effectiveness in promoting healing and rejuvenation. With further research and advancements in technology, PRP injections hold great promise for future medical applications.

What should I expect if I am considering PRP injection?

If you are considering PRP treatment, it is important to talk to your doctor if you are in any doubt to discuss the risks and benefits of the procedure. Your doctor can also help you determine if PRP is a right treatment for you. We offer all types of PRP treatment, iPRF and prp hair treatment including vampire facial.
