PRP for Skin Rejuvenation

What better way to rejuvenate your skin than to harness your own blood to revive your natural beauty? Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy is the latest medical treatment to cross over into the world of aesthetics.

A treatment made famous by Kim Kardashian, PRP therapy, sometimes known as the Vampire Facelift is a natural way of rejuvenating tired looking skin. PRP has been a recognised treatment in sports medicine and orthopaedics and is known to encourage wound healing.
Rippon Medical Services is proud to be successfully treating our patients with their own unique growth factors.  These growth factors are used to rejuvenate your skin, by healing damaged or ageing skin.

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is plasma from your own blood which contains concentrated platelets.

What are platelets?

Platelets are a specialized type of blood cell fragment in your own blood which are reservoirs of natural growth factors.  Platelets rupture and release their growth factors when they find themselves out of their normal environment (which is in your blood vessels).

Typically, this occurs when an injury occurs to the body and blood vessels are ruptured. This could be due to an accidental cut or scrape or a bruise. The released growth factors then get to work building new blood vessels and new blood vessels and new tissue.  In normal circumstances, growth factors are important in healing and skin regeneration.

  • Growth factors stimulate collagen secretion, cell growth and tissue remodelling.
  • Growth factors stimulate development of new blood vessels to improve skin nourishment.
  • Growth factors attract stem cells to assist in this role of new tissue regeneration. By injecting platelets in a PRP, we harness this new tissue regeneration ability of the growth factors.
  • PRP assists in recover from the ageing process and importantly, enhances the results of other rejuvenation treatments.

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) treatments are performed at our Carlisle Clinic by Dr Rippon who uses the U225 gun to perform platelet rich plasma treatments. The U225 is the most sophisticated MESO-INJECTOR on the international market, delivering quick and painless PRP precisely into the area being treated resulting in restoration of skin moisture and glow, and an improvement in skin texture and tone.

Facial rejuvenation is a top priority for many patients, but not all of them are ready or willing to undergo invasive surgery to achieve a more youthful appearance. Fortunately, there are a number of effective treatments available that can provide noticeable results without surgery.

One of the newest treatments involves the use of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to correct some of the most common facial aging concerns. PRP is a unique formulation created from the patient’s own blood, which has been specifically processed to increase the concentration of platelets in the plasma.

While its cosmetic applications are relatively new, PRP has a long history of use in orthopedic medicine, reconstructive surgery, and dentistry. It is a popular treatment for joint, tendon, and tissue injuries in professional athletes because it greatly reduces the amount of time the athlete is out of play after an injury. Platelet-rich plasma is rich in platelets and growth factors, which are known to stimulate stem cells. Stem cells in turn stimulate the growth of collagen to help the body heal and regenerate more quickly. 

How PRP is used in cosmetic medicine
