Our own blood is made of plasma, red blood cells, white blood cells and Platelets. Platelets are tiny bodies which contain granules. These granules contain clotting factors and growth hormones and researchers have discovered that when activated in the body, they release healing proteins called growth factors.
The Platelets are activated by injury resulting in the release of the clotting and growth factors. The clotting factors stop the bleeding and growth factors promote the healing process.
At the Me Clinic Autologous Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is produced from the patient's own blood by a process of centrifugation of the blood. The platelets are isolated and then mixed with a small quantity of plasma which are then injected into the patient. These platelets are packed with growth factor proteins, which assist with and accelerate tissue repair and regeneration. They promote the healing of connective tissue and the development of new blood vessels and also stimulate the wound healing process, and increase collagen production.
As such PRP treatments provide amazing opportunities in Cosmetic Medicine. We have been involved in Research & Development and performing PRP treatments for over 10 years.
Plasma Rich Platelet (PRP) can be used with the following treatments:

A no obligation consultation with one of Surgeons is essential in determining what you require and which procedure would be best suited for you.
Our philosophy is simple. We want you to be fully informed, and we want you to understand all your options and have one accurate price quoted once. Consultation fees may apply.
