Kensington Health Clinic are proud to be the premier provider of the PRGF®-Endoret® procedure in UK. PRGF® (Plasma Rich Growth Factors) Therapy is an innovative approach to anti-ageing, which uses your body’s own healing process to rejuvenate and restore the skin.
Thanks to advances in regenerative medicine, today is now possible to use the human body’s resources to heal oneself. Using PRGF®-Endoret® technique it is possible to isolate, concentrate and extract growth factors, a set of proteins present in our blood that are responsible for repair tissue naturally. Plasma rich in growth factors enables our proteins to rejuvenate our skin, conferring healthier appearance.
The ability of PRGF®-Endoret® to activate tissue regeneration can counteract degenerative changes in the skin from the third decade of life, improving the tone and skin elasticity.
PRGF® stands for Plasma Rich Growth Factor. They are natural proteins in platelets found in blood. The therapeutic application of growth factors is that it stimulates and accelerates the processes of tissue repair, healing and regeneration.
PRGF® Therapy is an organic rejuvenation procedure, whereby stem cell science is used to encourage your body to produce more collagen to create the appearance of younger skin. The PRGF® Therapy works with your own blood plasma as our Clinicians extract your blood to begin the anti-wrinkle treatment.
The PGRF® Therapy procedure is a 3-step process. You should be in and out of the practice within a couple of hours.
During the treatment, a sample of blood is taken from your arm and then placed in a centrifuge, allowing the platelets to separate platelet rich growth factor is then extracted into a syringe to prepare a platelet-rich injectable gel. This is then injected on to the face and neck.
The effects of PRGF®-Endoret® microinjections are progressive and begin to be evident after 24 hours from the first application, with an increase in the smoothness and brightness of skin with each new session. It is recommended to receive three sessions in the first three months. Subsequently, the treatment is personalised, with usual maintenance being one to three sessions per year.
Yes – PRGF Endoret is the only technology which holds the European CE and American FDA approvals for a variety of medical uses such as facial rejuvenation. It has been widely acclaimed in a number of international articles.
Production of own Hyaluronic Acid – PRGF®-Endoret® stimulates the production of natural hyaluronic acid, pro-collagen and elastin improving firmness and reducing sagging.
Increased consistency – The PRGF®-Endoret® promotes the increase secretion of collagen and elastin. This generates a greater consistency, firmness and reduced sagging in the skin of the patient.
Hydration – PRGF®-Endoret® ensures a high level of skin hydration compared to levels obtained with other cosmetic treatments as it has been proven in clinical trials.
Wrinkle reduction – The filler effect got through the use of PRGF®- Endoret® technology attenuates the wrinkles in the infiltrated areas. The facial expression lines lose their depth similar to the way they do on the treatments with hyaluronic acid.
Skin luminosity – PRGF®-Endoret® makes skin recover the lost luminosity over the years. Patients that have gone through this innovative treatment achieve a higher luster of their skin.
It is different from cosmetic injectables in that it does not only add volume and, but also, rejuvenates the skin by stimulating your own collagen production and cell migration to eliminate lines and wrinkles. Also unlike other such systems the PRGF®-Endoret® is capable of extracting the white blood cells during centrifugal process hence causing virtually no or minimal inflammation.
PRGF®-Endoret® is compatible with other cosmetic treatments, since there is no negative interaction with other substances. Indeed, some plasma rich in growth factors-based treatments can be complemented using a filler to increase the volume of a specific zone such as deep lines. PRGF’s attach to filler to stimulate collagen production, providing better volume results. PRGFs also make traditional fillers last longer, giving you younger skin.
