Platelet Rich Plasma

March 25, 2014 by

We have recently added Platelet Rich Plasma treatments to the services we provide at SCMC. This involves using the patient’s own growth factors to stimulate healing and rejuvenation. A small blood sample is taken and placed in a special tube. The various components are separated by centrifugation and the platelet fraction isolated for therapeutic use.

The platelet component of blood contains a range of growth factors. These can be utilised in a variety of cosmetic and musculoskeletal settings.

Regenlab TGA Approved PRP system

 

 

In the cosmetic context, we can rejuvenate ageing skin by stimulating collagen production, stem cell migration, differentiation and proliferation and stimulation of new blood vessels, nutrients and the other components of the extracellular matrix.

PRP also has a variety of musculoskeletal applications. By enhancing the healing cascade right at the source of the problem, we can treat conditions such as tennis elbow, plantar fasciitis, jumpers knee and other tendinopathies, as well as degenerative and arthritic conditions.

Contact us now for more information on this and our various other treatments.

Welcome to the first Blog entry for our practice. Our plan is for this to be a means by which all interested parties can keep up with developments as they happen. Whether this is a medical breakthrough, a new product or service, special deals, news relating to staff or important practice information, we will keep you up to date here.

For those that aren’t familiar, we opened last year after what had been years of planning. We provide medical consultations and treatments for both beauty enhancement and ageing skin.  Treatments involve anti wrinkle injections and fillers. We also have a top of the range Palomar laser platform for the treatment of pigmented and vascular skin lesions, scars, stretch marks, facial rejuvenation and permanent hair reduction.
A subsidiary of our practice is the Hills Vein Clinic. Here we treat spider, reticular and varicose veins without the need for general anaesthetics or hospital visits.
All consultations (apart from hair removal) are with our doctor, and treatments performed by either doctor registered nurse.
We are currently offering bulk billed initial consultations (no cost to the patient).
Over coming weeks we’ll go into more detail about the various treatments we offer.
We look forward to you visiting our practice!
