What is PRPS?

PRPS is your ‘own repair system’: Platelet Rich Plasma + Stroma. PRPS can help you by simply ‘repairing the damage’.

Better than what used to be called stem cells: PRPS

PRPS is your ‘own repair system’: Platelet Rich Plasma + Stroma (more than what used to be called stem cells). PRPS can help you by simply ‘repairing the damage’. Do you want to know more about how your platelets (PRP) and repair cells (SVF) can be transferred, then make an online appointment now with the doctor of your choice.

The Take Home Message

Discover the great benefits of PRPS, and what it can do for you.

Part 1

Platelet Rich Plasma

There is only 1 repair system, consisting of 2 elements, with which you repair every wound in the body:

Part 1. Signal substances (from your platelets = PRP) that can ‘instruct’ neighboring ‘repair cells’. By itself, PRP is not capable of repair, cells are doing the work and need to be present in the traumatized area.

Part 2


Part 2. Repair cells are present in the ‘blood vessel-connective tissue network’ and capable of doing the actual work: ‘repairing’.

These repair cells and their ‘matrix’ are everywhere directly under the skin in between the fat cells. Its scientific name is  ‘Stromal Vascular Fraction (SVF)’, or in STROMA, and is more effective than a single cell suspension of what used to be called ‘Stem cells’.

The technique we invented to get STROMA out of lipoaspirate without the use of any chemicals or enzymes has made our approach unique and very safe. Millions of repair cells become available for injection within 45 min, splitting subcutaneous tissue up into different fractions by Fractionation and sterile centrifugation.

Combining part 1 + 2

The final product: PRPS

Together they form your 100% own repair system.
This repair system is called PRP + STROMA, or PRPS.

Anywhere where there is Residual Damage, PRPS can restart the process of repair and thus reduce the source of the pain and give you back the appropriate function.

Examples of PRPS

Discover the great benefits of PRPS, and what it can do for you. See examples of success with PRPS at:

PRPS and joint pain

Before treatment with PRPS:

  • This former professional football player with a totally worn-out knee received 1 injection of PRPS
  • Depending on the amount of residual tissue damage, one or more treatments will be necessary
After treatment with PRPS:

PRPS achieves the maximum repair effect after +/- 12 weeks. The overall repair process will continue for more than 1 year. An average recovery might look like this;

  • pain reduced rapidly directly after treatment
  • new overload will show some return of pain in case there is Residual Damage
MRI imaging of bone bruise / arthrosis in the knee, before and after PRPS

This series of MRI imaging shows a person with Residual Damage with pain and loss of function due to bone bruise (red circle, white discoloration) rated -4 in 2016 and still -3 in 2018 after conservative therapy only.

After 1 session of PRPS pain was reduced, and function was regained but not to a full 100%. MRI imaging shows reduced bone bruising. Pain and loss of function were scored -1 to -2 and proved to be stable up to 18 months after treatment.

Residual Damage:

We invented this 5-step Stairway of Damage and Repair to allow you to appreciate the concept of Residual Damage.

Not everywhere in a joint, the damage (by trauma or arthrosis) will be equally distributed. As PRPS will give you 1 up to 2 steps of repair back up this ladder, it might imply that more treatments are needed if you start out with damage ranging from -2 to -4. As soon as you are -5, and 100% of all tissue is damaged, you might be ‘beyond repair’ and PRPS treatment is too late. Then joint replacement might be your only option left?!


PRPS the concept:

If you sum it all up, Residual Damage is varying from -1 to -5 and can be repaired 1 to more steps back to more normal tissue per session of PRPS, taking away the true cause of your pain and restoring functional impairment.

PRPS and irradiated skin

Before treatment with PRPS:

  • Irradiated skin after breast malignancy
  • Exhausted all regular hospital treatment
  • A disturbing large scar in the middle of the cleavage
  • People said there would be no more treatment options?
After treatment with PRPS:

  • For small scars, 1 session of PRS may be sufficient
  • Deeply irradiated skin will require several sessions of PRS
  • Every round of PRS seems to give about 20 to 25% improvement
  • Tissue damage will repair in all layers, superficial and deep.

PRPS and hair loss

Before treatment with PRPS:

  • Highly advanced photography and hair counting shows a spectacular result of PRS on unwanted baldness
  • 17 to 25% more hair density within 6 to12 weeks after 1 treatment with PRS (tested on 10 men)
After treatment with PRPS (1y later):

  • no additional hormone treatments
  • multiple patients’ hairdressers have stated: “I do not know what you have done, but I do know that you have more hair!”

PRPS and aging skin

Is it possible to go back in time?

  • At 61 years, after 1 procedure, you can look the same as you did at 43.
  • It is possible by combining the 1.2.3.Dimensional concept and PRPS.
  • dr Stevens introduced this combination as the 4D-Facelift
  • Check out all you want to know on his site,
  • Results that were previously not possible are now available!

Please notice, currently, this treatment is not being reimbursed by your insurance company. This can take another 5 to 10 years, despite all the promising results that we can already show. Until then, PRPS is only available by paying for it yourself.

At the same time, it is very encouraging that not only patients but also doctors are very satisfied with PRPS and also have been choosing PRPS for their own personal treatment and are referring their own patients regularly.
