PRP – Platelet Rich Plasma

What is PRP?

PRP or Platelet Rich Plasma is part of your own blood which contains a number of growth factors and proteins essential for cell growth and rejuvenation. The plasma is separated from your blood using a special process, and this can then be used to treat a wide range of injuries and conditions. By injecting a concentrate of your body’s own growth factors into a specific area, it is possible to stimulate the growth and repair of tissue in that area in a natural way.

What can it be used for?

PRP is a regenerative treatment, and as such, it can be used to repair cells and tissue all over the body. When used for musculoskeletal concerns the treatment is also often called combined with a treatment called Prolotherapy. The treatment is commonly used for:

Sports injuries (muscle, tendon, ligament repair)

Hair Loss

– Skin Rejuvenation

– Wrinkles and Lines

– Erectile disfunction and sensitivity issues

While it can be extremely effective for many people in treating certain conditions, it is very important to note that this should not be considered as a lone replacement for all other procedures. For example, in some cases of injury, PRP may eliminate the need for procedures such as surgery, however in other cases it may not. A comprehensive consultation with the practitioner is vital to establish these indications.

FAQ

How do you extract the PRP?
The blood is extracted the same way as if you were having a simple blood test. The quantity of blood required depends on the area to be treated and the amount of plasma needed.
Is the treatment painful?
The treatment itself can be uncomfortable when performed without pain management, however when under the supervision of a qualified doctor you should have the option of local anaesthetics and a light sedative, which can mean your experience is totally pain-free.
How much does it cost?
The cost of PRP treatments will depend on the type of treatment performed, the area to be treated, and the specific treatment plan for that client.

As a general guideline, PRP treatments can generally cost from roughly €150 to about €1200.

This will also change if these treatments are performed alongside other adjunctive treatments such as PRF or Carboxytherapy, which can be the case for many treatment plans.

How long do I have to wait to see results?
This depends on the type of treatment you have, but in general, it can be an average of 6 weeks to 6 months before you see actual results. When you have a PRP treatment, you are stimulating the growth of new tissue. Therefore you must wait for the body to remodel and grow, and this does not happen overnight. Some clients can see results much sooner, and some may need to wait a bit longer, as everyone responds differently to these types of treatment.
How many treatments do I need?
In the case of treating sports injuries, it is generally possible to achieve effective remodelling with 1-3 treatments, however this can differ between individuals.

With aesthetic treatments such as hair loss, it is important to understand that you are managing ongoing ageing conditions, and this can involve multiple treatments over the course of time, and can often depend on the use of other . A specific treatment plan is developed with each client during the initial consultation and this will indicate how many treatments are recommended for effective results.

how do i find out what i need for my case?
The most important part of the process is the initial consultation. At NuaCell, this consultation is with our specialist restoration physician and surgeon. During this consultation you will discuss your particular case in detail, and you will develop a treatment plan based on your expectations and the doctor’s expert recommendations. This treatment plan will also give you a very good outline of the costs involved, how many treatments you may need, what kind of results are possible and all of the other information relevant to your case. You should never undergo a treatment without a comprehensive consultation first.

Client Reviews

Carboxytherapy – Circulatory issues

I had some sensation and circulation related issues in my fingers and toes, and would often feel cold or numb. I explored many options with my doctor and consultants but could not find any underlying reasons for this, or any effective treatments to help me.

My experience with Dr.Sam and the team has been exceptional. They take the time to go through how the procedure will work and the effects and benefits of the outcome, I’ve never been more comfortable sitting in a clinic in my life.

Secret to Looking Young

I am touching 80 years of age and I am regularly visiting Nuacell Clinic for the last six years. I am still very active in business and socially and people would never have guessed my real age thanks to the wonderful treatments and attention I get from Dr. Sam and his lovely team. I am regularly told I look in my sixties and I am grateful to know the secret reason for that.

Fat Loss Like Never Before

I have always struggled with unwanted fat around my sides (love-handles). Thanks to Dr. Sam’s treatment with Aqualyx, this greatly reduced, without any pain or discomfort. One of the best decisions I’ve made to date.
Thanks Dr. Sam and team!

“I know for a fact I wouldn’t get this service anywhere else.”

“I got a circumcision done by Dr Sam in Feb 2019 after many years of suffering.

My only regret is not finding Dr Sam sooner. He was world-class. Very calm and reassuring. He talked with me on the phone prior to surgery and any questions he was on hand to answer as was his secretary.

On the day of the surgery he made the whole process so straightforward I was in and out in no time. The procedure was quick and painless. The aftercare shown by Dr Sam was what really made him stand out. I had to contact him a few times afterwards with several questions and no matter what time or day/night he would respond. I know for a fact I wouldn’t get this service anywhere else.

Two years on and it’s the best decision I ever made. Dr Sam is a true professional and a master at what he does. Thank you.”
