Platelet Rich Plasma is an innovative autologous technique that is highly effective to activate stem cells and fight ageing, treat scars and stretch marks, stimulate hair growth and repair tissues and wounds. It also stimulates skin cells and the production of collagen and elastin. De Felipe Dermatology Clinic has a long experience in PRP treatments and the results of our patients speak by themselves.

What is PRP or Platelet Rich Plasma?

PRP stands for Platelet Rich Plasma.

Platelets are the blood cells responsible for coagulation and for forming clots in wounds.

When we injure our skin, platelets form a clot that covers the wound. The skin must be repaired and, to obtain new cells, stem cells must replicate to create new young skin. Growth factors are needed to wake up and stimulate skin stem cells. Platelets contain many growth factors such as PDGF (Platelet Derived Growth Factor), EGF (Epidermal Growth Factor) and FGF (Fibroblast Growth Factor), among others.

Why is PRP indicated in so many patients?

For many years, Orthopedic Surgery had tremendous difficulty in suturing tendons and joints.They began to use platelets derived from the patient’s blood to obtain growth factors and improve the repair of damaged or aged joints. Nowadays, PRP is a very common treatment in traumatology, stomatology, trichology and regenerative medicine.

What is the PRP?

The procedure of PRP:

  • First step: A patient’s blood sample is taken. About 30 ml of blood is enough.
  • Second step: Blood is centrifuged to separate red blood cells from plasma and platelets.
  • Platelet-rich plasma is withdrawn with a needle and syringe and activated with calcium carbonate or another stimulant to release growth factors.
  • Finally, it is injected with a needle, microneedling or with a cannula.

Frequently asked questions from our patients

The most common questions about platelet-rich plasma in London:

The Spanish Society of Trichology, part of the Spanish Academy of Dermatology and Venereology, recommends 6 consecutive sessions to stimulate hair growth in different types of alopecia.
The results in the hair are noticeable from the fourth month.
These are the ones that arise in the upper third of the trunk after acne or surgery.
Dark circles are another very good target for PRP treatment. Since the skin in this area is very thin, any material or filler may be very visible no matter how little you put under the skin. PRP is a material rich in growth factors and ideal for stimulating skin and other tissues in the dark circles of the eye.
