PRP only

PRP is 1 of the 2 elements important for wound healing.


Platelet Rich Plasma, PRP, is 1 of the 2 parts important for wound healing.

Signal substances inside each platelet (> 2000 per platelet) interact with repair cells in their direct environment and in this way are an important element in orchestrating wound healing.

Obviously, wound healing can only take off if enough of these repair cells (STROMA) are present at the site of the damaged tissue. If this is not the case, wound healing is limited. Then PRP+S will work better than PRP only. Read more here.

The strength of PRP

Several studies from our group showed PRP reduced downtime by 30%.

Recovery from lipofilling of the face without PRP looked something like this after one week, with still quite a few bruises.

With PRP added to lipofilling simultaneously, one week after treatment, recovery is much quicker.

PRP against tendon & joint pain

As you can read on the internet almost everywhere, several studies show that PRP is supposed to be a new promising method to help to cure complaints of sports injuries and worn joints. You will read PRP can be injected into the inflamed tendon or the worn joint fairly easily under local anesthesia. The growth factors then should work through a combination of anti-inflammatory activity (leading to less pain) and at the same time more ‘lubricating fluid’ is produced, so that the joint can move better.

More than 2/3 of these patients, temporarily, reported a decrease in pain. Improvement often occurs 6 to 8 weeks after the first injection. Usually, 2 to 3 injections are given at an interval of 6 to 8 weeks. The effect of this treatment with ‘signal substances only’ lasts on average 6 months to a year.

To date, Platelet Rich Plasma has not been shown to repair damaged cartilage. The beneficial effects are attributed to the anti-inflammatory effect and the production of hyaluronic acid and collagen. A Platelet Rich Plasma treatment is most effective in combination with lifestyle changes, physiotherapy, weight loss, braces, and sufficient exercise.
