For over thirty years, PRP has been used in many different medical felds including: cardiac surgery, oral surgery, dentistry and periodontal implants, orthopaedics, wounds care, sports medicine, neurosurgery, general surgery and cosmetics.

Platelet rich plasma (PRP) obtained from your blood contains platelets which work in the body to repair cuts and tears. Platelets also have growth factors on the surface which stimulate collagen production when injected into the skin.

How does it work?

A small amount of blood is drawn from the patient into a sterile tube in the exact same manner as a standard blood sample. The tube containing a patient’s blood is placed into a centrifuge and spun to separate the plasma and platelets from the other blood components.

After a few minutes, the plasma and concentrated platelets are removed from the same tube and re-introduced into the patient at the site of the injury, scars, skin, obvious lines or wrinkles. Using a small sterile needle, your physician will inject the PRP in and around the desire site. This is an all accomplished 100 % natural procedure, without using animal products derivative or any other foreign material.

Research and clinical data show PRP obtained from the patient’s own blood is safe, with very minimal risk of adverse reactions or complications. Because the platelets are produced from your own blood, there is no risk of rejection or disease transmission.
