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.
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.
We’re opening on some Saturdays to accommodate those who can’t make it during the week. Call us on 88830449 to make an appointment.
We now have a Facebook page. You can view this at: http://www.facebook.com/SydneyCosmeticMedicalCentres
