Emcyte Pure PRP

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is an injectable treatment by which a person’s own blood is used. Platelets are fundamental in the process of tissue healing, and the growth of new cells.

PRP encourages collagen production, helps to regenerate the skin tissue, and may reactivate your cells into rejuvenating themselves.

The release of growth factors supports the healing process. 

The latest technology

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy has been around for years. Independent studies have now shown that plasma must be concentrated at more than 5 times normal baseline levels to achieve the very best repeatable results.

Many current systems do not achieve this. Emcyte Pure PRP does.

How does it work?

Creating PRP

Platelets are cells that circulate within your blood. When a blood vessel is damaged, platelets respond by binding together and stimulating many processes to repair damaged tissue.

Creating PRP

Emcyte PRP therapy can treat many women’s health conditions, including:

  • Urinary incontinence
  • Improve atrophic vaginitis

Individual results can vary.

Emcyte PRP achieves a purer product with higher PRP concentration and allows your practitioner to tailor the treatment to your needs.

  • Unique separation system for better cell extraction
  • Platelet recoveries of over 80% – far higher than earlier generation PRP systems
  • Choose to include or exclude neutrophils (immune cells) depending on the treatment

In a typical 30-minute appointment, we can:

  • Assess your needs
  • Collect and process your blood
  • Create and inject your PRP

You may experience some mild swelling at the injection site but are normally able to continue with your usual activities.

Emcyte Pure PRP FAQ

The treatment of PRP involves a portion of blood, collected from the individual patient into a syringe. The collected blood is then rotated down in a special centrifuge to separate its components. The platelet rich plasma is then reinjected, and/or micro-needled back into the skin.

Typically, a PRP treatment takes about an hour to complete. This depends on if the PRP is administered through injections only, and/or micro-needled into the skin. This timeframe includes an additional 30 minutes for the blood to be drawn and spun in the centrifuge, and topical numbing to be applied.

Some mild discomfort may be felt while the PRP is being reinjected. The sensation usually felt is a burning or tingling sensation. This sensation only lasts a few minutes after the PRP injected. We ensure our patients are comfortable throughout the entire PRP treatment and apply topical numbing cream and ice to reduce any discomfort.
Usually, patients notice tightening and a more even tone to their skin in a week or two after PRP injections. These results continue to build for up to 6 months after treatment.

Results from PRP injections can be seen for many years after treatment. However, these results vary due to the individual’s natural variation in quality of Platelet Rich Plasma, as well as their lifestyle.

For cosmetic purposes, PRP is most popularly used to treat the face, neck, and scalp.
There is no downtime associated PRP injections. However, after your treatment, your skin may be red. This is normal and to be expected. Redness usually lasts from 1 hour to 24 hours. You may also have a little swelling in some areas. Recovery time varies from patient to patient.
Results can be seen after one treatment, but the exact number of treatments needed varies from patient to patient. Generally, 2‐3 treatments are advised, but more may be indicated for some individuals.

PRP used for aesthetic procedures are safe for most individuals.

The most common side effects associated with PRP injections are
mild to moderate swelling and redness.

Patients with certain health conditions and who are pregnant are
not a candidate for PRP injections. Consultation and assessment will be made to ensure that you are the right candidate for PRP injections.
