We use the U225 Mesogun at Riya Clinic, which is based on the technology of the aeronautical industry–it provides a powerful delivery device which results in a treatment that is almost painless. The U225 gun incorporates needling and cannula into one treatment process–what's more, without the need for numbing cream, the pain is tolerable. The U225 gun's treatment time is faster and less pain.

PRP injections are not recommended for people with bleeding problems, those taking anti-coagulation medications (e.g. Coumadin), or those with cancer, active infections or pregnant.
