Over time our joints gradually wear down. Cartilage is the substance that stops bones rubbing against each other in joints and it acts as a shock absorber. Over time cartilage gradually becomes thinner and the bones get close together. Eventually this becomes a condition known as Osteoarthritis which is due to wear and tear. Excessive wear and tear is seen in athletes or sports people as well as those who have had busy active jobs. Currently there is no way to reverse this process and many people go on to have surgery such as joint replacements later in life. A few years ago Doctors started using PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) either alone or mixed with a joint lubricant made of Hylaluronic Acid and injected this back in to aching joints.

The results have been exciting and today it is a treatment that is becoming more popular for joint pains. Our Doctors have had years of experience injecting painful joints with steroid medications that settle inflammation. With the advent of PRP we now have a treatment to offer that contains none of the side effects of steroids. PRP uses your own growth factors that help repair damage and these are extracted from your own blood sample. We commonly treat shoulders and knees with PRP, and our patients have had great pain relief with our treatments.


I cannot recommend NU-U highly enough. I have had my “Vampire Facelift” done by both Dr Rai and Dr Punater and each time it has had an amazing effect on my skin. I’m so glad I have found these doctors. They are welcoming and know exactly how to make your skin so much more radiant.

Excellent. I went to NU-U just before my wedding due to some frown lines. My treatment was amazing start to finish. Everything I was worried about was carefully looked at and precisely corrected.

PRP here is the best I’ve ever had! I have to get PRP done on my hair following a hair transplant. Lots of my friends have had very painful experiences with scalp PRP. Dr Rai does my treatment with a fast machine and it is so much better than the places I visited in London.

Excellent service. I’ve had several different treatments from Dr Punater at NU-U. Each one has given great results and I’ve been amazed at how easy he makes everything look. This is definitely the best place I have been to for cosmetic treatments.

From the moment I was greeted by Dr Rai I felt I was in safe hands. This is an amazing clinic where they really aim to look after you and I wouldn’t trust anyone other than Dr Rai now. The injections I had were far less painful and gave a much better result than anywhere I’ve been before. Would highly recommend NU-U to everyone.

Great Professional Service! I felt at ease with these guys. Very caring, professional and explained everything to me. Gave me my options and guided me through what would be best for my skin. I’ve not been to other clinics and having chosen this one I don’t think I’d ever go anywhere else.
