PLATELET RICH PLASMA

The science of aesthetics is a rapidly changing one, with new advances almost daily in the

unending search for anti-ageing treatments. One of the most advanced new therapies is

called Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) and is now offered at Dr Niemann’s Aesthetic clinic. An

early sign of aging is the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the face, especially on the

forehead and around the eyes and mouth. In a quest to stay younger looking, many women

and indeed men, seek the help of aesthetic and cosmetic professionals to help smooth these

away. There are numerous anti-ageing treatments that will address this issue, but none as

novel and radical as this one.

So what is Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)?

PRP or Platelet Rich Plasma, is nothing but autologous blood with concentrations of platelets above

baseline levels, that contain at least seven growth factors.

Although blood is mainly a liquid (called plasma), it also contains small solid components (red cells,

white cells, and platelets). The platelets are best known for their importance in clotting blood.

However, platelets also contain hundreds of proteins called growth factors which are very important

in the healing of injuries.

PRP is plasma with many more platelets than what is typically found in blood. The concentration of

platelets and, thereby, the concentration of growth factors can be 5 to 10 times greater (or richer)

than usual

BENEFITS:

Normal blood contains only 6% platelets however, in PRP, there is a concentration of 94% platelets,

which translates to a powerful growth factor “cocktail” with a variety of growth factors and

cytokines. This stimulates cellular tissue regeneration to dramatically accelerate healing.

For this reason this treatment is very successful in treating the signs of ageing, as well as assisting in

hair regeneration and even muscle and joint regeneration.

IS THE TREATMENT SAFE:

Since the platelets come from the patient’s own blood, there is absolutely no possibility of allergic

reaction or other side effects. The only precaution you need to take is to stop any anti-inflammatory

or blood thinning medications while administering PRP.

WHAT HAPPENS DURING THE TREATMENT:

To develop a PRP preparation, blood must first be drawn from a patient. The platelets are separated

from other blood cells and their concentration is increased during a process called centrifugation.

The PRP is then further separated into 3 parts, namely,

The PPP (Platelet Poor Plasma) – which is very effectively used for skin needling as an anti-ageing

treatment,

The PRP– which is richer in platelets and growth factors, and

Super Concentrated PRP (known as the Buffy Coat), also known as “the Liquid Gold”, is usually

injected into the areas of greatest concern and yield the best results.

For Skin Rejuvenation: Once injected into your skin, the platelets will accelerate the normal healing

process and produce new collagen at the injected area. For this reason, we use all 3 parts of the

extracted plasma PPP for mild and general rejuvenation (we can use this on your hands, neck and

chest), while the PRP and Liquid Gold will be used specifically on the face and areas of most concern.

For Hair Restoration: The PRP is injected through the region that is thinning/balding which supplies

the nutrients it requires to continue growing a thicker, fuller and healthier hair strand. Although

there are no large scale clinical studies on this, preliminary evidence exposes PRP therapy as a good

fit for hair restoration.

WHAT ARE THE RISKS INVOLVED?

Due to the PRP coming from the patient’s own blood, there is no risk of allergy or reaction. The

procedure can be mildly uncomfortable however the patient is well numbed before starting the

treatment, so most find it quite comfortable. The greatest risk is mild bruising, redness, sensitivity,

swelling and mild peeling while the patient heals.
