PRP Therapy

What is PRP?

PRP definition - a platelet concentration higher than the physiologic platelet concentration found in healthy whole blood. The PRP is often injected into areas within the body that have a poor blood supply to promote healing in these difficult to heal areas such as the plantar fascia (foot), achilles tendon (ankle), the rotator cuff (shoulder), tennis elbow and the patella tendon (knee). Also most joint surfaces and cartilage have a very poor blood supply so once injured, often the body cannot repair the damage on its own, which is one of the reasons why osteoarthritis becomes more progressive with time. PRP treatments are often used to treat healing and pain problems that have not responded to standard treatment approaches. The PRP treatment is performed in a doctor’s office and usually the procedure c an be completed within one hour.

PRP can be used to treat:

Musculoskeletal injuries PRP is often injected into areas within the body that have a poor blood supply to promote soft tissue and bone healing in these difficult to heal areas such as the plantar fascia (foot), achilles tendon (ankle), the rotator cuff (shoulder), tennis elbow and the patella tendon (knee). Also most joint surfaces and cartilage have a very poor blood supply so once injured do not repair ( especially in adults)

Wounds

PRP functions as a tissue sealant and drug delivery system, with the platelets initiating wound repair by releasing locally acting growth factors. These growth factors attract un-differentiated cells that aid tissue healing and regeneration, promote new capillary growth, and accelerate skin regrowth in chronic wounds. PRP therapy can positively impact wound healing and associated factors such as pain and infection in both chronic and acute cutaneous wounds. Wounds treated 
  • Arterial; 
  • Venous;
  • Pressure; and
  • Diabetic

Aesthetics (skin rejuvenation and hair restoration)

In dermatology and cosmetic medicine, PRP has been used to treat acne, scarring, skin rejuvenation and tightening around the eyes (for sun damaged and ageing skin and fine lines) and in the following areas: cheeks and midface, jawline and submalar regions, back of hands, decolletage, and others (eg, knees, elbows, and upper arms, as well as for stretch marks. In hair restoration, PRP is injected into the scalp. The application of PRP causes miniaturized hair follicles to become healthier and larger, producing more robust hair growth. PRP activates follicular progenitor cells (adult stem cells) and promotes angiogenesis and localised cell growth. Effective for both male and female pattern hair loss.

Surgical procedures

PRP delivers powerful growth factors that improve blood supply and cellular regeneration which is helpful for a broad range of surgical healing applications in head and neck surgery, cardiovascular surgery, ENT, cosmetic surgery, oral surgery and periodontal surgery. Because PRP is autologous (obtained from you), the risk of allergic reaction or rejection is almost zero
