Dr Daniel Sister brings to you a course in the much talked about subject of Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) using the Dracula Kit. For over thirty years, PRP has been used in many different medical fields including: cardiac surgery, oral surgery, dentistry and periodontal implants, orthopaedics, wounds care, sports medicine, neurosurgery, general surgery and cosmetics.
How does it work? A small amount of blood is drawn from the patient into a sterile tube in the exact same manner as a standard blood sample. The tube containing a patient’s blood is placed into a centrifuge and spun to separate the plasma and platelets from the other blood components. After a few minutes, the plasma and concentrated platelets are removed from the same tube and re-introduced into the patient at the site of injury, scars, skin, obvious lines or wrinkles. Using a small sterile needle, you inject the PRP in and around the desired site. The treatment lasts 30 to 45 minutes and can be applied to any skin type or colour. Is this safe treatment the nearest thing to a ‘perfect’ dermal filler? Time will tell.
Dr Sister has travelled the world to discuss with fellow professionals the remarkable array of treatments that have been made possible through this technique. During the course he will talk about his experience of PRP combined with mesotherapy or dermaroller, as a standalone treatment or post ablative laser; mixed (or not) with dermal filler, vitamins, amino acids and antioxidants; It can be used everywhere on the body, ranging from the treatment for hair loss to breast enhancement!
