What is PRP?
PRP is Platelet Rich Plasma. By using plasma taken from the patient’s own body it is possible to repair, rejuvenate and return loss of volume to the skin.
What does PRP involve?
A small sample of the patient’s blood is taken from their arm (you must be trained in phlebotomy/venepuncture to take live bloods) and placed into a centrifuge, which spins it very rapidly to separate the plasma from the red blood cells. The plasma can be injected directly into specific areas of the skin, or skin needling can be used to create tiny punctures across a larger area, to allow the plasma to be absorbed.
What does a PRP training course involve?
Pre-course material will be sent to each delegate prior to the training day. The day will start with a short assessment to ensure all delegates have a good understanding of the material, followed a discussion to reinforce the theory alongside an explanation of the treatment process.
Delegates will then consult their models ensuring they are fully informed and consented.
The afternoon will be given over to practical experience when each delegate will undertake a full treatment under the supervision and guidance of our expert instructors. All delegates will be taught how to use a dermal roller to apply the PRP. The roller used is a 0.5mm roller (this does not qualify you in microneedling, however, we do run a separate course should you wish to be trained in this procedure). Delegates with a medical background (ie doctors, dentists and nurses) will also be trained in the injection of PRP - see entry requirements below.
In our training we use gel-free PRP tubes, which is safer for the patient as there is less chance, if any, of an allergic reaction.
The aim of the course is that each delegate will leave confident in their knowledge, skill and ability to perform the treatment successfully in their own practice.
As ever we strive to provide a relaxed safe environment in order to maximise learning within the space of the day.
Following the course, what support will I receive?
We can provide you with a centrifuge on the day that is very robust and of the highest quality. It spins up to 4000 RPM.
Once you have introduced the treatment to your clinics, our team will be happy to offer advice and guidance should you have any questions. We can be contacted by phone or email and will ensure a prompt response.Enquire Now Book Now

Is the PRP training course open to anyone?

We are also one of the only providers of this course to be able to offer the training to certain non-medics as long as our insurance company is happy with the entry qualifications. Please ring for more advice. Non-medics will be taught to centrifuge and apply the PRP with a 0.5mm dermal roller.
You must have completed training in taking live bloods NOT just an attendance certificate.
