Let's explore the benefits, process, and efficacy of PRP treatment in detail (OR SKIP READING AND SCROLL DOWN TO WATCH A VIDEO).

What is PRP Treatment?

PRP treatment involves extracting a small amount of blood from a vein (usually the arm) into small 20mL tubes. The whole blood in the tubes is processed in a centrifuge to separate the platelets and plasma (beneficial components) from the red blood cells. The red blood cells are discarded and the concentrate a.k.a PRP (liquid gold) is injected into the treatment area.

The platelets in the plasma portion (gold bit!) contains over 20 different growth factors that are significant in cell regeneration and wound healing. Without sounding too scientific, when injected, these platelets release these growth factors to repair damaged cells and produce collagen. They also promote protein synthesis and regulate the cellular matrix at a deep level. Ultimately, this process means your blood supply is essentially supercharged with drug free, 100% natural, dense regenerative nutrients to transform damaged cells into healthy skin and hair (even bone!).

It's important to note, not all PRP systems used in clinics are the same. There are a number of PRP systems being used that are sub-therapeutic and these cheaper systems produce statistically insignificant results. The PRP system used at Nurse Nyma Aesthetics is the most scientifically studied PRP system in the world and are leaders in tube PRP technology offering approximately 4.4 billion platelets per 20mL.
