Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy Training Courses are available in the UK for members of the medical profession including doctors and nurses.

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy, also known as autologous rejuvenation therapy, the 'vampire facelift', and by the brand names MyCells® and Selphyl® involves harvesting platelets from the patient’s own blood in order to inject them into problem skin areas. Starting with the extraction of a minimal amount of the patient’s blood which is then placed in a centrifuge to spin down the blood which separates the red blood cells from the platelet rich plasma. Platelets contain a high content of “growth factors” – proteins that help to heal injured tissue or damaged skin. Upon re-injection the platelets release their growth factors which trigger surrounding cells to proliferate, in turn stimulating repair, increasing volume and rejuvenating the skin.
