This is not a new treatment but has been around for many years and first discovered in 1953.
This treatment involves taking a small amount of your blood and spinning it in a centrifuge to separate the platelets from the red blood cells. The platelet rich plasma is then injected into areas required. This can vary from facial rejuvenation of skin to scar tissue including acne scarring and large pores.
It is also widely used in in osteoarthritis in particular knee joints. The platelets within the plasma enables healing to take place by stimulating the inflammatory process which encourages growth factors and healing.
We recommend initially two treatments followed by an annual maintenance treatment. Each session will take approximately one hour.
We generally add these treatments onto other treatments or can be done on their own within our Plymouth clinic. One session will cost £30-£50. Please ask for details.
