Platelet-rich plasma is an injectable liquid made from your own blood that has been treated in a particular way to make it especially rich in platelet cells. Platelet cells contain several different substances such as antibodies and proteins that stimulate cellular growth and aid the healing and rejuvenation of bone and soft tissue. It is a biological cell therapy using your own concentrated and enriched plasma cells. Because it is made from a sample of your own blood and it’s a perfect match for you -there’s no risk of allergy, serious long term side effects or rejection.
There has been extensive publicity recently for aesthetic PRP Treatments and their rejuvenating properties – Who can forget Kim Kardashian and the ‘Vampire’ Facial Therapy©? PRP treatment has also been featured on the programme Cheshire Housewives. It is a truly personalised aesthetic treatment that can increase skin elasticity, firmness and volume, smooth fine wrinkles, fill deeper wrinkles and folds, minimise acne scarring and pigmentation of the skin and increase radiance.
There are also many other uses for PRP. It can be used to heal leg ulcers and scars for example and can be used for male and female intimate rejuvenation.
