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 and restore hair growth.
This course will cover the use of PRP for facial rejuvenation, neck rejuvenation and hair restoration.
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 is then applied topically to the skin of a the neck and face, or the scalp, and then a dermal roller is used to create tiny punctures in the skin, which allows the plasma to be absorbed.
What does the PRP training course for non-medics involve?
This course enables those practitioners who meet the entrance criteria to separate platelet rich plasma from blood by using a centrifuge. Pre-course reading will be provided via our interactive e learning platform prior to training.
The day will begin with a discussion on the theory content studied, alongside an explanation of the treatment process.
The afternoon will be given over to practical experience whereby delegates will carry out the treatment under the supervision and guidance of our expert instructors. Delegates will consult their models ensuring they are fully informed and consented. All delegates will be given the opportunity to carry out a PRP treatment on a model using 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).
In our training we use gel-free PRP tubes, which are 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 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.
