PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) means platelet rich blood fluid. It is one of the methods of natural rejuvenation. When a part of our body is injured, platelets go to the injured tissue and initiate the clotting process. Platelets that contact the injured tissue are dissolved and the growth factors in their contents are released into the injured tissue. These growth factors ensure the acceleration and strongly continuation of the wound healing process. At the end of this process, the relevant area is rejuvenated and recovered.
Our skin that wears out due to many factors such as sun rays, smoking, pregnancy, stressful life and irregular eating habit regains the lost structures by means of the PRP treatment. The PRP procedure is performed in medical aesthetic for many purposes such as the reducing age-related skin damages, treating skin spots, wrinkles, and acne scars, giving a vivid and youthful appearance to the skin, and maintaining the protection of our skin from the ongoing sun damage in the coming years.
In the PRP procedure, the platelets in the blood are concentrated 10 to 20 times more, and then are injected into certain areas such as the face, cleavage, dorsum of the hand, and scalp. The goal is to enable the worn-out tissue to rejuvenate itself, by directly applying growth factors and a wide variety of chemical substances contained in platelets, which accelerate the healing-rejuvenation process.
It is performed 3 times a month in the first year. Then, it is repeated once a year. If necessary, more sessions can be added.
The application time of PRP is about 30 to 45 minutes.
The PRP procedure be performed in conjunction with another treatment (filler-oil injections-lasers and peels); and by this way, the effect and duration of the procedure is increased.
The difference of this PRP treatment is that the patient’s own serum and pure hyaluronic acid contained in the same tube is injected to slow down the effects of aging, by triggering the collagen and elastin production.
