platelet rich plasma

Platelet Rich Plasma, also known as ‘PRP’ is an injection/micro needling treatment whereby the clients own own blood is used to rejuvenate the treatment area such as the face or scalp for hair loss.

A fraction of blood (5-20ml) is drawn up from the client into a vacuum sealed tube. This is a relatively small amount compared to blood donation which can remove 500ml. The blood is spun in a special centrifuge to separate its components (Red Blood Cells, Platelet Rich Plasma, Platelet Poor Plasma and Buffy Coat).

Once spun for adequate time within the centrifuge, the blood components should have separated. See diagram above. We look to extract the platelet rich plasma from the tube.

To give you an idea, in a tube of 10ml blood, we will be able to extract roughly 2ml of PRP. This is what is injected into the treatment area.

When PRP is injected into the treatment area it causes a mild inflammation that triggers the healing process.  As the platelets organize in the treatment area, they release several enzymes to promote healing and tissue responses including attracting stem cells and growth factors to repair the damaged area.

As a result, new collagen begins to develop. As the collagen matures it begins to shrink causing the tightening and strengthening of the damaged area.  When treating injured, aged, or damaged tissue, this can induce a remodelling of the tissue to a healthier and younger state.

The full procedure takes approximately 45minutes to an hour. Generally, 2-3 treatments are advised; however, more may be necessary for some individuals. Each treatment should be 4-6 weeks apart, or, until the treatment area has fully healed if taking longer than 4-6 weeks.

The client can be given a consent form to get completed by their doctor.

The product is injected in small ‘deposits’, you may be able to see them initially, but they settle usually within hours. It may be possible to feel the product where it has been injected under the skin.  It will settle, there is no need to massage.

  • Make-up should not be worn for 12 hours
  • You are advised to avoid alcohol and vigorous exercise for 48 hours
  • Avoid sun bathing, and extremes of heat or cold for 14 days post treatment.
    Any bruising may take a few days to appear, arnica can be helpful in clearing bruising.  It is advisable to avoid aspirin and alcohol for 12-48 hours after treatment.
  • Tenderness should settle as swelling and bruising goes down.

We apply a topical numbing agent to help ease any pain. However some clients still feel a stinging sensation as the product is injected. 

Sunekos can be used around the eye area and forehead, Profhilo cannot.

Profhilo treatments are spaced at 4 week intervals and a courswe of 2, Sunekos is every 7-10 days and a course of 4 is required to see long lasting results.

Sunekos is a blend of HA and amino acids, Profhilo is different levels of concentrated HA

Effects of Sunekos generally lasts for 6-9 months, this however can depend on the individuals rate of metabolism and on how fast the hyaluronic acid is absorbed. With repeated treatments the effects tend to last longer and clients can have smaller top ups every 6-12 months. 

Yes, your practitioner will massage the treated areas in one of two methods to provide maximum results

The Interstitial Fluid Technique is an injection technique developed by Professional Dietetics medical team to get faster results especially in the first phase

Using this injection technique and following with lymphatic massage towards the lymph nodes vastly improves the apearaqnce of wrinkles and fine lines for optimal results.

The RIFT technique involves massage in the opposite way of the lymph nodes. This will build and fill out the tissues giving a fuller effect to the area treated. This is good for clients with hollow features.
