Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) has been in clinical use for more than 10 years and the safety and efficacy is well documented in the surgical literature. Activated platelets release growth factors (GF), that impact positively on the wound healing cascade. Patients give a modest blood collection in a special vaccutainer tube called a THT (Thromboctye harvesting tube), this is then spun in a centrifuge for approximately 8 minutes. After spinning the PRP serum is drawn up into a syringe and injected into the skin, or clotted and used to form part of a wound dressing or sprayed onto surgical flaps by the surgeon. The autologous (your own cells) nature of the preparation makes this process attractive to those who seek a more natural alternative for cosmetic injection, and a risk free option for accelerated wound healing for doctors and surgeons. The process is simplier now than ever before.

PRP continues to become more popular as more people discover the potential ‘holy grail of wound healing’ which are the growth factors within their own  platelets.

Clinical Information

In summary, PRP is an autologous accelerator of wound healing.

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) has been in clinical use for more than 10 years and the safety and efficacy is well documented in the surgical literature.

The process is simplier now than ever before.

PRP continues to become more popular as more people discover the potential ‘holy grail of wound healing’ which are the growth factors within their own  platelets.

The vast majority of medical and scientific publications on the topic report a significant enhancement of healing when PRP is used, across a wide range of clinical applications.

PRP facilitates the healing of surgical wounds in many clinical situations:

  • Burns
  • Radio-therapy Burns
  • Cosmetic Surgery
  • Plastic Surgery
  • Dental Surgery
  • Orthopaedic Surgery
  • Cardio-Thoracic Surgery
  • Etc.

Perhaps the best proof of absolute clinical efficacy and value of PRP can be seen directly in published photographs of bone grafts and skin grafts tested side-by-side or left untreated. The differences are dramatic, and convincing. The diffferences are also substantiated thoroughly by histological observations and measurements of the two sites.

Because it is an autogenous preparation, PRP is inherently free from concerns of transmissible diseases, and therefore safer than any homologous preparations.
