About The Treatment

Platelet Rich Plasma is a by-product of the patient’s own blood. The use of PRP in regenerative medicine has produced previously unattainable results in areas such as dark under-eye circles, hair loss, scarring, skin rejuvenation, scar removal, wound healing and acne.

Platelets are key factors in hard and soft tissue repair mechanisms . They provide essential growth factors, such as FGF, PDGF, TGF-ß, EGF, VEGF, IGF, which are involved in stem cell migration, differentiation and proliferation. Additionally, platelets also stimulate fibroblasts and endothelial cells to induce new extracellular matrix deposition and neo-vascularisation respectively.

Plasma contains many factors essential for cell survival including nutrients, vitamins, hormones, electrolytes, growth factors (such as IGF and HGF), and proteins. Among the plasma proteins, the molecules vital for the coagulation process and for the fibrin polymer formation will serve as a scaffold for cell migration and new tissue generation.
