Choosing The Best PRP Technology For Skin Rejuvenation and Hair Loss - Cellenis PRP

In the ever-growing world of cosmetic treatments, Cosmetic Courses stands out as a leader in providing quality training for Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy, a popular method for skin rejuvenation and hair loss treatment. At Cosmetic Courses, we are dedicated to offering the highest level of training. To achieve that, we collaborate with industry partners who share our values and support our mission.

Our trusted partners in PRP training is Cellenis® PRP. In this blog post, we’ll explain why we choose Cellenis PRP for our training courses.

Cellenis® PRP

First and foremost, patient safety is our utmost priority. Cellenis® PRP not only meets but exceeds the stringent regulatory standards set for medical devices in the UK. This ensures that patients are not put at risk during the treatment process.

PRP systems can vary significantly in their preparation methods and resulting PRP components. Cellenis PRP stands out due to its unique and proprietary Separator Gel technology. This optimises the biological profile of Cellenis® PRP in several ways:

  1. Effective removal of inflammatory neutrophils: Cellenis PRP efficiently separates inflammatory neutrophils from healing monocytes, which fight infections and stimulate stem cells. The ability to separate these specific types of white blood cells is unmatched by any other PRP system. As a result, Cellenis PRP is the least inflammatory PRP available in the market.
  2. Elimination of red blood cells (RBC): Cellenis PRP ensures that there are no detectable red blood cells present. RBCs are known to cause inflammation, inhibit fibroblast proliferation, and even lead to cell death. By removing RBCs, Cellenis PRP promotes optimal conditions for hair regeneration and overall skin rejuvenation.
  3. Cellenis PRP Training - Cosmetic Courses 1High platelet recovery rate: In hair loss treatment, Cellenis PRP has the unique ability to increase the platelet concentration to the optimal formulation required. This is four to five times the concentration found in patients’ blood. This means that each microliter of PRP injected contains at least one million platelets. Achieving this concentration is crucial for optimal hair regeneration outcomes.
  4. Modified anticoagulant: Cellenis PRP utilizes an anticoagulant with a pH of 7 and added dextrose, which is beneficial for platelets. Unlike other anticoagulants with acidic pH levels, Cellenis PRP causes no stinging sensation when injected. Enhancing patient comfort during the procedure.

Value for Money

Furthermore, Cellenis PRP offers excellent value for money. While there may be similar-looking PRP tubes available at lower prices, published evidence shows that the platelet capture of these lower-cost alternatives is at least half that of Cellenis. Consequently, using Cellenis PRP means you need only one tube, whereas you may require two tubes of the lower-cost PRP to achieve the same platelet concentration. By opting for Cellenis PRP, you ensure optimal outcomes for your patients and help build your professional reputation.

Now, let’s address a common question: why can’t we use vacutainers for PRP preparation, even if we choose a reputable brand like BD from a pharmacy?Cellenis PRP Training - cosmetic courses

Vacutainers, regardless of the brand, are intended for blood analysis only. They are not certified or classified for PRP preparation and injection into humans. The gel and tube contents have not undergone safety testing for PRP production. In addition, some anticoagulants used in in-vitro diagnostic (IVD) vacutainers can be detrimental to platelets. Their acidic pH levels may cause discomfort upon injection.

It is worth noting that in the United States, BD vacutainers come with labels explicitly stating that they are not to be used for PRP preparation. Although such warnings are not mandatory in Europe, it is possible that the UK’s new UKCA mark, replacing CE certification, may require similar precautions from the HMRA (UK regulatory authority).

At Cosmetic Courses, we strongly discourage the use of IVD vacutainers for PRP preparation. Your patients, who trust you and invest in your treatments, deserve a higher standard of care and safety.

Another concern: purchasing PRP tubes from uncertified suppliers offering significantly lower prices

If you come across PRP tubes from a supplier claiming CE certification but do not find the CE mark, the four-digit number, or the name and address of the EU Representative or UK Responsible Person on the label, be cautious. The absence of CE certification indicates that the manufacturer has not undergone the necessary inspections and audits to ensure compliance with EU and UK regulatory standards. It also means that there are no checks on the tube’s contents or the manufacturing processes.

In such cases, we strongly recommend insisting on seeing the CE certificate from the supplier. Verify the authenticity of the certificate by consulting a competent person familiar with the requirements. Using uncertified PRP tubes can pose risks to patient safety. This has been evidenced by past incidents like the PIP breast implant scandal, which led to stricter regulations.

The temptation to cut corners and save money through do-it-yourself (DIY) PRP preparation

While it may be tempting to save approximately £40-£60 per treatment. DIY alternative involves using sterile empty vacuum tubes and purchasing anticoagulant separately. However, this approach has several drawbacks. The platelet recovery rate is around 40%, meaning the concentration of platelets in the PRP is significantly lower. Moreover, the anticoagulant used is typically the standard acidic type, which may cause discomfort upon injection.

Using such DIY methods compromises the quality and effectiveness of PRP treatment. Your patients may not be aware of the suboptimal results, but as a healthcare professional, it is your responsibility to provide the best possible care and maintain high treatment standards.

In conclusion, Cosmetic Courses prioritises patient safety and effective outcomes. That’s why we choose Cellenis PRP, a superior PRP technology that ensures optimal biological profile, patient comfort, and excellent value for money. We strongly advise against using uncertified PRP tubes or resorting to DIY methods, as they compromise patient safety and treatment efficacy.

By staying committed to the highest standards of training and technology, we aim to provide our trainees with the best tools and knowledge to deliver exceptional cosmetic treatments.

Platelet-Rich Plasma Article

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is a treatment that is becoming more popular as patients are seeing the benefits of this aesthetic facial. PRP therapy or the vampire facial as it’s otherwise known is a great procedure for your aesthetic clinic either as a standalone treatment or to complement other procedures such as Dermal Fillers and skin treatments. So, what does this innovative and revolutionary approach in tissue regeneration for skin rejuvenation and hair loss entail?

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy uses the patient’s platelets to promote cell rejuvenation. The patient’s blood is collected and spun in a centrifuge machine to get the concentrated PRP, which is then injected back into the patient. This separation process enables the platelet-rich plasma ‘good plasma’ to be used in a higher concentration. This type of concentrated blood contains more platelets than other types of plasma. Platelets are tiny cell fragments that circulate in the blood. These platelets contain proteins called growth factors, which help promote tissue healing. They are important because they contain a variety of cell-signalling molecules that can activate healing processes throughout the body.

In regards to the centrifuge system, we use a proprietary, simple, safe, easy to use and highly efficient Platelet Rich Plasma preparation system. Cellenis®PRP closed system has only five preparation steps. You can find out more about the Cellenis PRP System here.

PRP injections are designed to speed up your body’s natural healing process

By injecting this highly concentrated form back into affected areas such as hair loss or ageing skin, Platelet Rich Plasma therapy promotes healing while stimulating collagen production to reduce fine lines and improve skin complexion/texture. These injections are designed to speed up your body’s natural healing process by delivering higher concentrations of platelets than would be possible normally. The treatment contains several growth factors, which are necessary for healthy skin cell production, resulting in fresher-looking skin.

Natural-looking results, minimal risk, little downtime

Why should you have Platelet Rich Plasma as a treatment in your clinic? PRP therapy is a minimally invasive procedure that stimulates the growth of healthy tissue. In addition, it requires no downtime after treatment so this is a bonus for the patient. Some of the benefits of PRP therapy include an increase in collagen production which results in fresher-looking skin, proven rejuvenation treatment for hair loss, and improved moisture retention whilst reducing fine lines/wrinkles. This treatment is also cost effective as it incurs very little outlays, making it a very lucrative procedure for your aesthetic business. Our delegates have found that PRP therapy offers many benefits for their patients looking for natural-looking results with minimal risk and downtime.

Next Steps

The Platelet Rich Plasma Training Course is the ideal next step to start implementing PRP in your clinic. You will learn how to perform this treatment from our expert trainers. Their hands-on approach will leave you feeling confident, giving you the knowledge and practical hands-on experience to start treating your patients.

What to look for in a Platelet Rich Plasma training course

Recently at Cosmetic Courses we have seen an influx of Platelet Rich Plasma training course enquiries. As with anyPlatelet Rich Plasma Training Course with Cosmetic Courses (1) course, it’s important to do your research before booking on especially when it comes to the products the course is using. The world of PRP is vast and should not be seen as a one size fits all treatment. Multiple courses are needed to cover the different areas such as hair, face, and body along with understanding different client needs and managing expectations.

There are also many PRP machines on the marketing, all using different centrifuge methods. In this blog we are going to discuss what to look for when choosing your Platelet Rich Plasma Training Course and the machines to perform your treatments.

What qualifications do I need to do PRP?

At Cosmetic Courses we only train doctors, dentists, and nurses with valid medical registration in our aesthetic courses including Platelet Rich Plasma training. Due to the nature of the treatment, our delegates need to have existing experience in taking blood and managing complications caused by trauma to the body.

Our courses are also taught by our expert faculty with extensive knowledge within their own medical fields, applying it to their aesthetic experience to lead example in safe and ethical practices within aesthetics.

What is PRP training?

Platelet Rich Plasma training is learning the fundamentals and practical elements of this sought-after treatment. PRP involves taking the patients own blood and spinning it within a centrifuge system to separate the good plasma. It is then injected back into the skin causing a slight trauma which urges the bodies own collagen supply to come forward and aid repair, working with the good plasma.

Developed over 40 years ago and used by dental and maxillofacial surgeons for its wound healing abilities, it made the move into aesthetics helping with skin rejuvenation, scarring, pigmentation, hair loss and ageing.

Who can administer PRP treatments?

Due to insurance policies PRP treatments can be administered by medically registered professionals with sufficient training behind them.

Choosing a PRP system

The original PRP machines used a buffy coat system, the same you would see within a laboratory to process blood samples for testing. With continued research and development, it became clear that using this system could cause contamination to PRP with red blood cells.

It later became apparent that by using certain types of tube when producing the PRP could result in some of the good plasma being left behind in the tubes when administering back into the skin, another area needed to be researched and developed further.

Centrifuge speed were monitored next, were they spinning fast enough to evenly split the samples, or were we not seeing the right results from the centrifuge and did it need improving…

Questions to ask when choosing your Platelet Rich Plasma training course:

  • What machines are you going to be trained in, do they have the relevant safety data and CE mark verification?
  • By using this machine how many of the platelets from the blood are delivered?
  • Can you vary the concentration of the machine?
  • Does the machine eliminate any red cell contamination?
  • Is the machine easy to use?
  • What areas will you be covering on your course?
  • Will there be practical experience on live models?
  • What support is available after and before the courses?

Cellenis PRP Centrifuge Systems

We are pleased to partner with Cellenis PRP for our Platelet Rich Plasma training courses, not only will you be taught in their machines and process but the PRP kits are available to purchase from us after your training.

Benefits of Cellenis PRP Centrifuge:

PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) Therapy and Dermaroller (microneedling) are both popular choices when it comes to skin rejuvenation. The remarkable results of the treatments are often seen throughout the beauty world as well as among ‘A listers’. Not only do these treatments create fantastic results on their own but once combined the results from working together are phenomenal. Here we look at each procedure in PRP vs Dermaroller and the benefits of combining the two into your patients treatment plan.

First things first, lets understand them a bit better…

What is PRP and how does it work?

Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy otherwise known as PRP is a natural treatment used to rejuvenate the skin. The results show a fresher, brighter appearance.

The treatment uses the bodies own growth factors to promote healthier younger skin. Using the Cellenis system, blood is drawn and then spun in the centrifuge machine which separates the platelet-poor plasma and platelet-rich plasma.

The clear (good) plasma is re-injected back into the skin which stimulates soft tissue rejuvenation. This wakes up the bodies own repair process which stimulates new elastin and collagen.

Platelet rich plasma therapy is suitable for all skin types and recovery time is little. Due to the nature of the treatment,  no chemicals are used, only the bodies own repair system to promote healthier skin with long lasting results.

What is Microneedling and how does it work?

Microneedling therapy is a treatment that stimulates the skin to repair itself safely and naturally. The roller contains clinically proven micro needles which when rolled over the skin cause minimally invasive puncturing and pin point bleeding, The body is then alerted and begins it’s healing process by sending collagen to the surface of the skin to repair the ‘damage’.

This influx of collagen begins to fix certain problems in that area;

  • Reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Minimising acne scarring
  • Refreshing the skin

The benefits of combining

Kim Kardashian is a big fan of the benefits of combing treatments

Both of the treatments work wonders on the skin by using a natural approach to skin rejuvenation. Although they may sound similar they work in different ways to achieve maximum results. Combining both therapies allows them to work hand in hand together to achieve maximum effect.

Both treatments work by controlled wounding of the skin which in turn stimulates collagen, elastin and fibroblast activity. The added growth factors from the PRP then intensify when combined with Dermaroller.

Dermaroller and PRP also carry great benefits when combined with other skin therapies. Making them a great component in your skin care regime.

Patients undergoing these treatments can see results such as: 

  • Reduction of fine lines & wrinkles
  • Smoother skin appearance
  • Reduction of scars
  • Skin rejuvenation
  • Even skin tones
  • Lightening of hyper-pigmentation & skin tone
  • Pore appearance reduction
  • Glowing, fresher skin
  • Younger complexion

As we make our way into Spring, we have decided to do a bit of spring cleaning and introduce a new PRP system to our training clinic.

Out with the old and in with the new they say! 

We have replaced our older and larger centrifuge machine with the new Cellenis Portable PRP machine.

PRP MachineThe compact machine (weighing 5kgs) is easy to move around. With an automatic lid-locking system it makes a great travel buddy for those of you who are mobile aesthetic practitioners.

To purchase a portable centrifuge from us then please contact the team on 01844 390110 or email us directly at [email protected].

Cellenis have also introduced a simple and efficient PRP preparation system with outstanding results.

5 Simple Steps

This new preparation system follows five simple steps down from the previous 6:

  1. Blood is drawn from the patient
  2. Blood drawn tubes are then inserted into the Centrifuge (10 minutes)
  3. Remove % of PPP (platelet-poor plasma)
  4. Gently inverted 10 x to re-suspend the platelets
  5. Withdraw the PRP (platelet-rich plasma)

This ground breaking new system has plenty of perks, one of which being that it now operates a closed system meaning a more sterile and faster process.

Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy is a treatment that rejuvenates the skin resulting in a fresher, brighter appearance.

The treatment uses the bodies own growth factors to promote healthier younger skin. Using the Cellenis system, blood is drawn from the patient then spun in the centrifuge which separates the platelet-poor plasma and platelet-rich plasma.

PRP has been around for many years and begun its life in the 1970’s with its first use in Italy (1987) were it was used for open heart surgery. It’s popularity rose with the discovery of its medical benefits in the mid-1990s. Since then it has been used in a variety of medical fields from cosmetic surgery, dentistry, sports therapy and pain relief.

A favourite with patients because of it’s natural process, using their own blood to produce healthier skin. The treatment has also become a must have to the stars with Kim Kardashian leading the way in this extraordinary treatment.

Newsletter (7)


With shocking celebrity photos and a never-ending supply of horror stories on Botched Bodies, as aestheticians we’re up against it. But what can we do to clean up the reputation of the cosmetic industry?

The long-awaited Keogh Report, published in 2013, found what most of us in the industry already know. Non-surgical cosmetic treatments are grossly under-regulated.

And while the report made several recommendations, so far it hasn’t translated into new legislation.

So in the absence of strong regulations, it’s our responsibility as practitioners to do what we can to reassure patients. And there’s a couple of important ways we can do that.

Cosmetic Training

UntitledUnfortunately, lax rules have created conditions where unqualified, unscrupulous practitioners have been allowed to flourish.

It’s hugely disappointing that Botox and fillers can be legally injected by people without any medical training. So if we want to raise standards, those of us who recognise the need for proper training need to make our voices heard.

Pursuing the best, most comprehensive cosmetic training we can, and displaying our credentials, is vital. We need to create a ‘race to the top’, where the best practitioners help decide the new norm.

Talking to patients about our training, in the form of newsletters and displayed certificates, will help raise awareness – and put clear water between us and unqualified practitioners.

We need to make sure patients expect their practitioners to be medically qualified, and have pursued additional cosmetic training.

Our patients trust us. So it’s our duty not only to make sure we’ve pursued the best training we can, and are updating it as needed, but to make sure they know how important that is.


Cosmetic Courses: Save Face Certification LogoAccreditation is voluntary, so by seeking it out you’re sending a powerful message to your patients, and by extension, the industry. The bare minimum is not enough.

The organisation Save Face was founded in 2013 as a direct response to the Keogh Review of the Regulation of Cosmetic Interventions.

Their Save Face Scheme is a voluntary register of cosmetic practitioners who have been thoroughly vetted by doctors.

It gives independent accreditation to practitioners and clinics who complete a rigorous cosmetic training programme and demonstrate that their practice complies with robust standards.

They check professional credentials, interview practitioners, and visit clinics to ensure they’re fit for purpose, all products are stored correctly and data protection is adhered to.

Accreditation is a reassuring ‘shorthand’ for patients. A prominent logo lets them know that their practitioner conforms to certain standards, and has nothing to hide.

The more practitioners seek and achieve accreditation, the more patients will start to look for it as a minimum standard.

At Cosmetic Courses, we’ve teamed up with Save Face to promote their enhanced accreditation programme to our delegates. All those who meet the criteria and achieve Save Face accreditation are entitled to a discount on further training with us.

As professionals, the power is in our hands to bring about the changes we want to see in the industry.

Educating ourselves and our patients, and seeking accreditation, are powerful tools to help raise the bar when it comes to patients’ expectations. And in time, those clinics and practitioners who don’t measure up will either have to take steps to improve, or fall by the wayside.

Cosmetic Courses offer cosmetic training to medical professionals looking to move into the aesthetics industry. We have training centres throughout the UK, including Bucks, Birmingham, Leeds, London, Kent and Essex. For information on any of our cosmetic training courses, call the team on 01844 318317 or email us at [email protected].



With demand for aesthetic treatments growing fast, and more professionals looking to enter the industry, the number of aesthetic training providers is expanding too.

Which means if you’re a medical professional looking to train in aesthetics, you’ve more choice than ever. But given the number of providers out there, it’s important to do your research and find the right provider for you.

If you’ve landed here, we guess you’re considering us (thanks!). So to give you a flavour of what you can expect, here are 5 reasons to consider our Aesthetic Training Courses…

1. Our team 

We think the number one reason to choose us is the thing we’re most proud of – our people. The Cosmetic Courses team, handpicked and led by Consultant Plastic Surgeon Adrian Richards, go the extra mile for our delegates.

All of them have excellent medical credentials and bags of experience. That’s a given. But what sets them apart – and what we consistently receive great feedback for – is their approach.

Our team understand that you need a little hand-holding while you’re learning, and in the early days after training. So we’ll always be there to help and support you throughout. We don’t just provide training – we see ourselves as a lifelong learning partner for our delegates.

2. Our history

We’ve been doing this for a long time. We’re the UK’s most established provider of aesthetic training courses, starting life back in 2002.

To date, we’ve successfully trained and mentored over 3,000 Doctors, Dentists and Nurses, many of whom are now running their own successful businesses – and 72% of whom came back for more training.

3. Our comprehensive service

There are plenty of challenges involved in changing career. So we’re determined to make the training part as easy and hassle-free as possible for our delegates.

We provide all the models and resources you need for your training. All you need to do is turn up on the day, ready to learn.

We also offer a bespoke, tailored service that lets you piece together a comprehensive training plan to suit your specific needs.

4. Our business support

As a medical professional, the practical side to aesthetics should come easily to you. But if you want to work for yourself, you’ll need to know about the ins and outs of running a business too.

So we’ve put measures in place to help you.

Once you’ve completed one of our aesthetic training courses, you’ll get access to the Members area of our website. Rather than having to create patient medical history and consent forms, treatment information sheets and other essential documents yourself, you can simply download them from here.

We’re also partnered with a pharmacy to give you a convenient way to access the products and supplies you need to run your practice – with cost savings too.

5. We’ll help you find new clients – for free

Training is only part of the picture. We know it can take time to build up your client base in the early days. So after you complete a course with us, we’ll automatically give you a free listing on our National Cosmetic Network (NCN) website.

The website is targeted at patients looking for safe, insured and accredited aesthetic practitioners in their local area. You can update your profile as you complete more training with us, so any prospective patients can see your expert credentials at a glance.

We only list practitioners that we’ve personally trained, so a listing on the NCN is a vote of confidence from the most established aesthetic training company in the land. Priceless!

Are you a nurse looking for a new direction? Still keen to keep using your practical and personal skills to change people’s lives?

There could be a home for you in aesthetic nursing.

The aesthetic industry is booming – and the non-surgical side in particular. Demand for non-invasive aesthetic treatments is now growing faster than cosmetic surgery.

And nurses have been at the forefront of the aesthetic revolution. They’ve been treating and caring for aesthetic patients since the early 1980s.

There are over 4,000 Aesthetic Nurses currently practising in the UK. So how do you go about joining them?

Aesthetic Nurse training – the requirements

Cosmetic Courses: Photo showing Mel Recchia, trainer on our Aesthetic Nurse training coursesWhile a minority of Aesthetic Nurses work in cosmetic surgery, most work on the non-surgical side.

Either based in clinics or self-employed in their own practices, they offer treatments like cosmetic injectables (Botox, dermal fillers), skin peels, sclerotherapy and medical micro-needling.

The most popular treatments by far are injectables. So if you’re serious about becoming an Aesthetic Nurse, you’ll need to pursue training in Botox and dermal fillers.

As long as you’re a Registered Nurse with current registration with the NMC, you’re eligible to train in the use of Botox and fillers.

Training can be completed in one day, and will qualify you to offer both Botox and filler treatments to your own patients.

But bear in mind that Botulinum Toxin is a prescription-only medicine. So unless you’re a Nurse Prescriber, you’ll always need to work with someone else who can prescribe it.

For that reason, we’d recommend your Aesthetic Nurse training also includes an Independent Nurse Prescriber Course. These are offered on a part-time basis at colleges and universities and can usually be completed in around 4 months.

Being able to prescribe Botulinum Toxin, as well as administer it, will make you a valuable asset to potential employers. It’ll also make it easier to set up and run your own business further down the line.

Other Aesthetic Nurse training options

Once you’ve trained in Botox and fillers, you’re ready to start practising as an Aesthetic Nurse. But in time, you’ll probably want to be able to offer more treatments to your patients.

You can add more to your repertoire at your own pace, as and when you’re ready. It’s simply a case of deciding which treatments you’d like to offer your patients, and completing the appropriate course.

Most non-surgical treatments only need a one-day course, letting you get up to speed very quickly. At Cosmetic Courses, we offer a wide range of one-day courses, including MicrosclerotherapyChemical PeelsDermaroller and Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy.

You might also want to consider advanced Botox and dermal filler courses to learn more specialist techniques like chemical brow lift and peri-oral sculpting.

Whatever you choose to learn on your Aesthetic Nurse training journey, it’s a great time to get on the aesthetics learning curve.

If the UK market keeps growing (and with an increasing – and ageing – population, it seems likely), you can expect to carve out an extremely rewarding career, both financially and professionally.

If you’re planning on taking several courses, our course packages are a great way to save while you learn.

2. Our 0% finance option

0% finance to help you start your career in aestheticsAnd if you’d rather not pay a lump sum for your training at the outset, we offer interest-free finance to help you spread the cost. 

Our 0% direct debit options are available on all the packages outlined above, as well as a select number of our individual bespoke, advanced and skin rejuvenation courses.

Because we know everyone’s circumstances are different, our direct debit plans are flexible. You can choose to divide the cost into affordable monthly payments over a fixed 6 or 12-month period, or together we can create a tailored plan to suit you.

All you have to pay in advance is a small fee to secure your place. Then once it’s set up, you can forget about paying and get on with learning.
