This course is designed to provide students with a detailed overview of best PRP practices. It introduces topics that range from the technical to the soft skills required for success. To be certified it will be required to participate in a practical session at Looks Aesthetic Academy.
In this course, it is expected that students will work to achieve a basic understanding of appropriate PRP practices. Each student will begin the course with different ideas regarding what PRP practices are, but as the course progresses, it is hoped that everyone will learn what actions as a health professional injector are needed to maintain safety and best practices
Platelet Rich Plasma
PRP is produced from a person's own blood. It is a concentration of one type of cell, known as platelets, which circulate through the blood and are critical for blood clotting. Platelets and the liquid plasma portion of the blood contain many factors that are essential for the cell recruitment, multiplication and specialization that are required for healing. After a blood sample is obtained from a patient, the blood is put into a centrifuge, which is a tool that separates the blood into its many components. Platelet rich plasma can then be collected and treated before it is delivered to an injured area of bone or soft tissue, such as a tendon or ligament. PRP is given to patients through an injection or PRP Machine.
