Prp/Prf Arthritis Knee Treatment in Glasgow

Looking for expert knee specialists providing knee arthritis treatment in Glasgow? Ever Clinic is proud to be the only clinic in Scotland offering a revolutionary new treatment not available on the NHS. Evidence has shown that, in the months following treatment, most patients experience a significant reduction in pain as well as new cartilage growth in the joints treated.

The process takes approximately 30 minutes and involves injecting the PRF into the damaged area. The growth factors and platelets which are concentrated by up to 500% get to work by activating repair mechanisms such as new blood vessel formation thereby accelerating the healing process.

Your questions on prp/prf knee treatment for arthritis answered

what is prf?

Platelet rich fibrin or (PRF) is a unique rejuvenation technique that uses the patient’s own blood plasma, enriched with platelets (source of healing proteins and growth factors), fibrin (the wound healing and regeneration matrix) and stem cells (the conductors of our body’s own healing and regeneration molecules).

This product is injected, resulting in activation of accelerated healing and regeneration.  As a result, the body’s own powerful regenerative properties are concentrated and focused on the area of concern.

what are the results of prf?

General

New fibroblasts, collagen and elastin tissues are formed. Skin elasticity and complexion is improved and pigmentation is reduced.

Joint Treatments

Reduced pain, improved function/performance and cartilage regrowth.

Can i get PRF for my knee arthritis?

To be eligible for this treatment prospective patients must meet the following criteria;

  • Not scheduled for any surgery
  • Not be on any immunosuppressant medication
  • Not have a significant bleeding tendency
  • Not be undergoing cancer treatment

Following treatment, Ever Clinic will regularly track your progress using recognised outcome measures.

how does prf work?

PRF intensifies the functioning and reproduction of cells, thus having a gentle, gradual yet long lasting and accumulative effect. Of course, i-PRF results are all the more impressive when incorporated into a treatment plan with hyaluronic acid fillers, wrinkle-relaxing treatments and other skin treatments. Producing virtually no downtime, this clinic based treatment can be used for skin and hair rejuvenation as well as treating problematic melasma and acne scars.

whats the difference between prp and prf?

Both PRP (platelet rich plasma), and PRF (platelet rich fibrin) are platelet based growth factor treatments that are extracted using centrifuge. PRF is different from PRP in that there is no anticoagulant (blood thinner)​ added during the spin.

And here is the technical detail:
​The avoidance of clotting is physiological and is achieved through negative charge of the collecting tube to mimic the conditions within our own blood vessels (their lining is negatively charged) that prevent fibrin from creating a clot within them, thus, obtaining a platelet rich injectable fibrin. Once PRF is injected in the tissue it transforms from liquid into a gel, which not only lead to filling of voids in folds and wrinkles but also provide a powerful regenerative matrix that releases platelets’ growth factors in a physiological controlled slow manner that enhances tissue regeneration is a better way than PRP.

In addition, the enrichment of platelets in these two products is not the same. In PRP, the platelets are enriched two to four times above the physiological concentrations available in blood and there are very few circulating blood stem cells. In contrast, PRF contains all the platelets with no elimination of the powerful regenerative matrix (fibrin) in addition to another very rich source of growth factors and tissue regeneration: the circulating blood stem cells.
