PRP is short for Platelet Rich Plasma.
After you have an extensive consultation with one of our nurses, you will be consulted by one of our doctors who will assess your needs. On instruction by our doctor, our Nurse will collect a small sample of your blood as you would normally conduct when you have your routine blood test at your doctor’s surgery.
The blood is collected and placed in a special container. The container is then placed in a machine called a centrifuge where your blood is spun for approximately 10 minutes so it can separate your blood components. The solution appears like a gold yellow clear fluid
While the centrifuge is spinning, we apply a numbing agent to your scalp for hair treatment or to your face or body for skin treatments.
The PRP is applied by a micro bore needle just under the skin. Immediately after the treatment the highly concentrated PRP that was injected in many different areas of the scalp for hair treatment and face or skin begins to work to bring vital nutrients to that area, kick starting the existing cells to do their job.
By separating the PRP from your red and white blood cells we essentially are able to take the pure form of your bloods best of the best nutrients and healing properties and inject it into the area we want to promote healing.
