Plasma therapy is part of a new wave of treatment protocols based on the study of the vital role platelets play in the healing process. When a wound or trauma occurs, platelets are the first cells to arrive on the site of the injured tissue thus aiding recovery as they are responsible for the rejuvenation of new tissue formation. They are our own bespoke army of nano-healers or orthobiologics.
Clinically, PRP therapy has been used to treat sports injuries such as tendonitis and nerve damage as well as in neuro and cardiac surgery. Injecting the platelet rich plasma into the affected are induces faster healing rates. More recently, based on clinical studies, its use has branched into medical aesthetics as one of the newest skin rejuvenation treatments.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) or 'Dracula Therapy' is an all accomplished 100 % natural procedure, without using animal products derivative. Research and clinical data shows PRP obtained from the patient's own blood is safe, with very minimal risk of adverse reactions or complications. It works on the basis that the body's own natural healing powers may slow and even reverse the ageing process; it's a revolutionary repair system that places growth factors (platelets) in the exact location where we want the skin to repair and rejuvenate itself. Your own biological material becomes your own filler.
