PRGF: Help The Body Heal Itself
Plasma Rich in Growth Factors (PRGF) is the most cutting-edge in advanced Platelet-Rich Plasma system (PRP). It works by using the patient’s own platelets for both the stimulation and acceleration of tissue regeneration and healing. Thanks to this process, the effects or any injury, trauma or degenerative process (including aging) can be countered in tendons, muscles, hair, skin, and cartilage. Simply put, PRGF is the most effective way for your body to, quite literally, heal itself and it’s a procedure commonly adopted by celebrities to heal scars and reverse the signs of aging.
What is PRGF?
In the process of PRGF plasma or platelet concentrate is taken from the patient through blood from the arm. The blood is then filtered to extract a large number of platelets and plasma. The Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is then injected directly into the damaged area to catalyze the growth of new cells.

The Science Behind PRGF
Researchers have found that platelets contain over 1100 different proteins including growth factor and transforming growth factor. It’s these ‘growth factors’ that allows your own blood to repair and rejuvenate areas naturally.
Common Areas Treated By PRGF
PRGF is used in many areas of the body to treat injury and reduce trauma. When it comes to the skin, the most common uses are on the brow and eyes for both hydration and wrinkle reduction, and the cheeks and neck for improved luminosity.
The treatment is administrated through a process known as ‘Mesotheraphy’ which is a minimal invasive form of treatment which involves the use of micro-injections. These small injections go into the middle layer of the skin (known as the mesoderm) through a sophisticated injector which ensures the whole procedure is relatively painless.
Treatment Duration and Recovery
Many of our patients report results as early as 24 hours, by which point the skin might appear smoother and brighter. Some patients even see results before leaving our clinic! However, for best results, we recommend 3 sessions within 3 months. There is no recovery time associated with this process and you can resume activities straight away.
