What is PRP therapy?
PRP stands for Platelet Rich Plasma. PRP therapy is the process of taking a sample of blood from the patient's body, spinning it in a centrifuge to separate out the plasma, and then injecting this plasma directly into the patient's face and neck for skin rejuvenation purposes.
How is the Platelet Rich Plasma training course taught?
All Facethetics Training courses include two stages - pre-course reading and the training day (or days depending on the course).
For the PRP training, pre-course reading is provided to each delegate via our e-learning platform. Delegates must complete their pre-course reading in full before the training date. This includes assessment questions, which enable us to ensure that all delegates have established a basic knowledge and understanding of the treatment before the training day.
On the training day itself, our Educator begins by leading a discussion on the content studied in the e-learning, alongside an explanation of the treatment process. This gives delegates an opportunity to raise any questions they may have come across from their independent study.
Following the theory session, delegates will observe as our Educator completes a full PRP treatment on a model. This includes consulting with the model to establish which area(s) of their face or neck they wish to have treated. The Educator will also demonstrate the correct usage of the centrifuge to separate the platelet rich plasma from the blood.
Is there a practical session included on the PRP course?
Yes. After lunch, the afternoon is focused solely on practical experience and each delegate will be given the opportunity to carry out a "Vampire Facelift" treatment on a model. During the practical session, our Educator will closely supervise and guide each delegate.
At Facethetics Training, medical professionals are taught two methods for administering the PRP into the skin - via injection and by applying the plasma topically to the skin and using a dermal roller to encourage it to penetrate.
Please note: if you are not a medical professional but still wish to attend a PRP course, you may be eligible for our non-medics PRP training. This course covers the method of topical application/dermal roller only and there are certain entry requirements that apply.
The aim of the PRP course is for each delegate to leave feeling 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.
We also offer a Combined PRP course, which is open to medical professionals only. The Combined Platelet Rich Plasma training covers the methods laid out above for skin rejuvenation, as well as the use of PRP for hair restoration and facial volumizing.
Following the course, what support will I receive?
We can contact a supplier on your behalf and provide you with a centrifuge on the day that is very robust and of the highest quality. It spins up to 4000 RPM. This will need to be pre arranged prior to training, please contact us to discuss this should you require our assistance.
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
