The NHS is using PRP therapy to treat tennis elbow and impingement syndrome due to its healing capacity. Studies dating back over 20 years prove it works to stimulate new collagen, and newer studies show it helps with skin aging and rejuvenation. It is extremely safe as it is your own cells being used.
A small amount of blood is taken from the arm, like when having a blood test. This is then spun in a medical centrifuge for a few minutes to separate the blood cells, serum and platelets. The portion that is rich with platelets is then injected into the skin or absorbed after microneedling the skin. PRP also contains your Stem cells and growth factors helping the skin to repair and produce more collagen, resulting in a healthier complexion with improved vitality. The plasma acts as a matrix that promotes collagen regeneration and skin tightening for a long term improvement. It improves skin elasticity and texture and is safe and effective for the delicate under eye area.
It can be used in areas where fillers cannot reach or where they are unsafe to use, such as under the eyes. It has also been proven to encourage hair regrowth on the scalp, and slow down the loss of hair follicles.
These types of more natural based treatments are the future of aesthetic medicine. Dr. Eddin was trained by the 2 pioneers of PRP, Dr. Daniel Sister, and Dr. J. Otto and is very experienced in PRP therapy, which can also be combined with Ozone therapy for added benefits.
