PRP & i-PRF

PRP & i-PRF are innovative treatments which deliver gentle, gradual and long lasting results.

You might have heard of PRP, also known as the “vampire facial”

The treatment is popular with celebrities and featured in an episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians.

The treatment requires a blood sample from the patient which is spun in a centrifuge to separate the platelet rich plasma. PRP can result in in the reduction of fine lines and wrinkles, a minimised appearance of scars (for example acne scars), and a general improvement to skin tone and texture. The treatment can also be effective for treating lines around the mouth, under eye bags, dark circles and crepey skin.

Dr. Kathryn skillfully integrates PRP and I-PRF treatments with other advanced procedures to enhance outcomes for her clients. By combining these regenerative therapies with complementary treatments like laser therapy, microneedling, or dermal fillers, she creates a holistic approach to skin rejuvenation. This integrated method not only enhances the natural healing and revitalising effects of PRP and I-PRF but also ensures tailored, multi-dimensional care for each individual’s unique skin concerns, leading to more effective and lasting results.

What is i-PRF?

i-PRF stands for injectable platelet rich fibrin. It is a unique technique that uses the patient’s own blood plasma for rejuvenation. Blood plasma is enriched with platelets (a source of healing proteins and growth factors), fibrins (the wound healing and regeneration matrix) and stem cells (the conductors of our body’s own healing and regeneration modules).

PRF is injected directly into the areas of concern via a thin needle (similar to Mesotherapy), which activates accelerated healing and regeneration. New fibroblasts, collagen and elastin tissues are formed following injection which improves skin elasticity and complexion.

i-PRF has a gentle and gradual effect, but is long-lasting.

How is i-PRF treatment performed?

  1. A sample of blood is collected from the patients arm.
  2. Your blood sample is spun in a centrifuge to separate platelets/fibrin.
  3. The platelet rich fibrin is extracted from the test tube.
  4. It is injected into the patient where required.

What can i-PRF treat?

  • Scarring
  • Stretch marks
  • Hair loss/thinning
  • Acne
  • Skin rejuvenation
  • Joint and soft tissue disorders such as tennis elbow and plantar fasciitis

i-PRF can also be useful for enhancing results and reducing downtime of other procedures.

What are PRP and I-PRF treatments, and how do they differ?

PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma) and I-PRF (Injectable Platelet Rich Fibrin) are both advanced regenerative therapies using components of your blood. PRP focuses on platelet-rich plasma, while I-PRF includes fibrin, a protein that aids in healing. Both treatments stimulate skin rejuvenation but have subtle differences in their composition and application.

Who is the ideal candidate for PRP and I-PRF treatments?

These treatments are ideal for individuals seeking to improve skin texture, reduce signs of aging, and promote natural healing. They are particularly effective for those looking to enhance their skin’s appearance using a natural approach. A consultation with Dr. Kathryn can determine if PRP or I-PRF is suitable for you.

What can I expect during and after PRP/I-PRF treatment?

During the treatment, a small amount of your blood is processed to extract PRP or I-PRF, which is then reinjected into the targeted areas. Post-treatment, you might experience mild swelling or redness, but this typically subsides quickly. Results gradually appear as your skin rejuvenates naturally over time.

Frequently Asked Questions

Will it hurt?

i-PRF is not considered painful. However, some patients do experience minor discomfort because it is an injectable treatment.

Are there any side effects of i-PRF?

Because i-PRF uses your own blood cells, the risks of adverse reaction or complication are extremely low. Some patients may experience bruising at the injection site, but this should subside quickly.

How soon will I notice results?

Changes begin in a matter of hours. For injections to joints, improvements are expected to start within weeks. Results can vary, in part due to the number and quality of platelets in the patient’s blood.

How long do the results last?

Results are dependent on medical and lifestyle factors, but usually last between 18 months and 2 years, although this can vary between treatment areas. Dr Kathryn recommends a top-up treatment after 1 year.

How many treatments will I need?

The number of treatments required will be based upon the area to be treated and the severity of the concern. Some problems may need between 3 and 5 sessions at 4-6 week intervals. Joint injections are a single treatment which can be repeated after 3 months.

Are there any reasons I can't have i-PRF?

If any of the following situations or health conditions apply to you, you would not be suitable for this treatment.

  • Pregnant or breast-feeding
  • Undergoing anticoagulant therapy, such as warfarin
  • Any medical condition having a significant effect on platelet function
  • Haemodynamic instability
  • Sepsis
  • Acute or chronic infections

    Dr Kathryn has a wonderfully warm and professional manner! I am very happy with the removal of my skin tag. I have done extensive … More research and definitely 'The Real You Clinic' ticks every box! Thank you again Dr Kathryn, you are very trustworthy.
  • Avatar Rhonda Cox ★★★★★ 2 months ago
    So far, I've had just two visits with Dr Kathryn, for laser and botox, and the results have been so subtle and effective. … More Friends say how well I look and as if I've been on holiday! I sought out Dr Kathryn to help improve the quality my facial skin and diminish age spots, especially on my upper chest (sun damage!). I'm 60+ and never before had 'work' done. Dr Kathryn was caring, she's managed my expectations, and the results have really boosted my confidence. She is a caring medical technician in her field.

    Dr Kathryn Taylor-Barnes is an amazing doctor who really takes time with each patient and is very caring. Nothing is too … More much trouble for her when looking after her patients.
    I truly believe that I owe her my life, as when I went in to see her for Botox in the summer of 2022, she took a detailed medical history.
    I had been suffering from vaginal bleeding for 18 months when I saw her and I had been to a gynaecologist a month before, who undertook a full D&C to check me out and found nothing of concern.
    When pressed, I casually mentioned this to Dr Kathryn and she immediately insisted that I make an appointment with Dr Trevor Wing, at the Women’s Natural Health Clinic, who is conveniently located in the same building at 16 Bridle Lane in St Margaret’s, Twickenham.
    Dr Kathryn personally took me downstairs to make sure that I made an appointment. Dr Wing, was so encouraging, but firm and clear that I needed further testing, as was his wonderful nurse, Olga.
    From then it was a whirlwind of further tests and eventually a full hysterectomy less than a month later, which confirmed the diagnosis of cancer of the womb.
    I honestly do not think I would be alive today if it were not for Dr Kathryn Taylor-Barnee and Dr Trevor Wing and their truly exemplary care for me. And all because of a Botox appointment!
    Heartfelt thanks to both of you and nurse Olga.
    I really appreciate seeing a fully qualified Doctor for my skin and face treatments.Dr Kathryn is extremely experienced as a medic and this shows when she picked up on my symptoms in a blink of an eye. Dr Trevor and nurse Olga have the skills to perform ultrasound at high level and guided me
    for onwards referrals. This mix is incredibly convenient for rapid assessment and diagnosis and makes for an incredible patient-focussed service.
    I consider myself lucky to have been in their hands and advise others to never ignore vaginal bleeding, even if initial tests show nothing.
