Plasma Rich in Growth Factors (or PRGF) is a regenerative treatment that uses your own plasma and platelets to stimulate healing and cellular growth. PRGF can be applied in various ways – it can be used by dentists to help improve the recovery time after treatments. We can use PRGF to help restore the skin to a more youthful appearance through injections.
PRGF can help:
- Skin rejuvenation
- Hair growth
- Nerve pain
- Promote painless healing and bone regeneration
What does treatment involve?
This treatment is sometimes called the ‘vampire’ treatment as your blood is needed in the first step. A sample is taken from your arm – just as you would expect in a normal blood test. Using a centrifuge, we split the blood into its components – separating the plasma and platelets. These substances are what we use in PRGF. Please click here for information on BTi-biotechnology.
We numb the injection sites if necessary before injecting the plasma into your skin. Altogether, the treatment shouldn’t take longer than a couple of hours (the longest step of the treatment involves the centrifuge – not the treatment itself!).
You should start to see the effects of the treatment after 24 hours.
