Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)
Founded around excellent patient care, safety and satisfaction Rippon Medical Services recognise that professional integrity and ethical treatments are of paramount importance in terms of meeting the needs of their patients here, in the North of England.
Expert Masterclass trained, Dr Rippon is one of the leading Medical Aesthetic Doctors in Cumbria, UK. He runs a busy Private Medical Aesthetics & Minor Surgery Clinic and is always looking for new opportunities to better his results and provide the best quality care for his patients.
Recent advances in regenerative (restoration and growth) medicine have led to the development of Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) combined with Mesotherapy or Microneedling for the successful treatment of hair thickening and regrowth in men and women.
PRP is the concentration of your own body's platelets in a small amount of plasma. This self-derived product possesses immense capabilities in terms of tissue regeneration.
At Rippon Medical, a small sample of blood is taken from your arm, exactly like having a routine blood test at your GP surgery. The blood is centrifuged to separate the platelet-rich plasma.
For men and women with hair thinning or loss, Dr Rippon injects the PRP into the scalp's vascular layer using the U225 which is the most sophisticated meso-injector on the international market delivering quick and painless PRP precisely into the area being treated. The PRP increases blood supply to the hair follicles and shaft size thickness, which triggers and maintains hair growth.
Introducing a new pain-free injections system at Rippon Medical Services Ltd for Mesotherapy and PRP treatments.
Dr Rippon is at the forefront of skin treatment technology and has invested in the very latest equipment to offer patients a genuinely pain-free injecting experience.
The system is state of the art and has been manufactured using quality components and aeronautical industry technology applied to advanced skin treatment techniques.
Mesotherapy is one of the most popular treatments at Rippon Medical Services Ltd. The treatment involves multiple tiny injections into the ‘meso’ or middle layer of the skin to add nutrients or hydration.
However, for new patients, the idea of ‘lots of tiny injections’ can be a little off-putting. The new injection system ensures that patients are comfortable throughout, providing fast, precise and efficient injections for a beautiful result.
PRP is a very sophisticated skin treatment technique where science meets nature. The procedure involves taking a sample of the patients blood and purifying it into a highly concentrated plasma, rich in the body’s own natural healing agents. This is then injected back into the skin where intense healing power is released, stimulating skin cell and collagen renewal.
As the process involves lots of tiny injections, the pain-free injection system is a very attractive prospect.
Dr Rippon has developed treatments for those with hair loss which involve PRP and Mesotherapy injections into the thin and delicate scalp area which boost the skin and scalp health, aiding retention of the patient’s natural hair without surgery or medication (although the technique is suitable alongside prescription hair loss drugs).
The pain-free injections system reassures those patients concerned about any discomfort.
