PRP

PRP

PRP, which means “Platelet Rich Plasma”, is a skin rejuvenation method that has been frequently preferred in recent years.

PRP Treatment

It is basically a treatment applied by superficial administration or injection of platelet-rich plasma (PRP), which is obtained by separating a small amount of blood taken from the person into its components with a special centrifuge process.

Usage areas

It is a method used to eliminate fine lines and wrinkles on the face, neck, décolleté area, hands and body, and to treat acne scars, blemishes and hair loss.

Reasons for PRP Application

Genetic, environmental, age-related, stress-related, alcohol and smoking-related factors negatively affect metabolism and slow down cell renewal. PRP leads to increased production and creates a regeneration effect in the tissue to which it is applied. Platelets have restorative effects.

How is PRP done?

PRP, obtained from the person’s own blood, is applied by injecting small amounts under the skin, and platelets, which are much higher than the amount that can be carried through the bloodstream, are delivered to the area that needs repair, ensuring rapid regeneration. . PRP strengthens the collagen structure and the bond between cells in the application area.

How many sessions are required for PRP application?

To get maximum results, 3-4 sessions of PRP should be performed one month apart. People who repeat this process every year will have a permanent glow, vitality and improvement in their skin.

When do the effects of PRP become visible?

Immediately after application, the skin shines and tightens. The permanent effect of the treatment is clearly seen after 3-4 applications.

Does PRP have any side effects?

PRP applied by an experienced specialist in accordance with the necessary hygiene conditions does not cause any side effects. Since PRP is obtained from the person’s own blood, it is a risk-free procedure. There may be slight sensitivity and redness due to the injection after the procedure and it will resolve spontaneously in a short time.

Who Cannot Do PRP?

PRP is not recommended for pregnant women, those using blood thinners, those with infections, or those with a history of cancer or blood disease.

Differences Between PRP and Stem Cells

While platelets that initiate and stimulate the repair of damaged tissue are used in PRP application, repair is achieved by using new cells to treat a condition in stem cell treatment.

What is a PRP kit?

The PRP kit consists of the necessary materials for blood collection, storage, special centrifugation of the blood, and return of PRP taken from one person to the same person. A wide variety of new generation PRP kits are available, specially developed for each branch. A high quality kit approved by the Ministry of Health should be used. In some PRP kits available on the market, highly harmful substances such as sodium citrate are added to prevent the blood from clotting when it leaves the body.

Will it cause harm if applied at home?

The PRP kit is a medical product and should only be used by qualified personnel. You cannot perform the procedure using the PRP kit alone. What is important in PRP treatment is to use the blood taken from the person before it clots, deteriorates and the proteins in it precipitate. Choosing the right PRP kits is very important in terms of which PRP kit will be used in which treatment and the success of the hygiene practice.

Benefits of PRP

The purpose of PRP treatment is to renew the skin. Accordingly, a tighter skin and less sagging, fewer wrinkles, lighter skin blemishes, brighter skin and fewer scars are observed.

How is PRP obtained?

The blood sample taken from the person under sterile conditions is transferred to a tube. It is processed in a centrifuge device with a special system, and platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is used by separating it from other components of whole blood.

Who Can Have PRP?

Anyone who does not have any contraindications to having a small amount of blood taken from their body and who needs skin rejuvenation, renewal and recovery can have PRP application.

PRP Price

Pricing of PRP application is planned completely individually. The price will vary depending on the number of areas to be treated and the condition of those areas.
