Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
What is PRP?
PRP stands for Platelet Rich Plasma, which is blood plasma containing a high concentration of platelets, also known as thrombocytes. PRP can help regenerate and revitalise damaged skin, reduce fine lines and help to improve skin texture.
What is RegenLab PRP®?
RegenLab PRP is a world leading system for the preparation of PRP developed by RegenLab in Switzerland. RegenLab PRP is an approved system that has been used to successfully treat fine lines worldwide since 2008.
How does it work?
Direct injection of RegenLab PRP helps accelerate the process of tissue regeneration and repair encouraging new collagen, elastin and new blood supply.
For example, when you cut yourself, the body's natural response is to attract platelets that release growth factors and facilitate healing. By Re-injecting concentrated platelets made from your own blood, there is an increase in the release of growth factor, which accelerates the natural healing process
What does the treatment involve?
Preparing RegenLab PRP is a quick and easy process.Blood is collected from you in 1- 2 specially designed tubes, which are then centrifuged for 5- 10 minutes. During centrifuge process, a patented gel within the tubes isolates PRP from other unrequired cells within the blood.
RegenLab PRP is then ready for application. Depending on the indication, it can be applied as:
•Multiple small superficial injections
