What is PRP?
PRP is the abbreviated name of the treatment method called “Platelet Rich Plasma- platelet enriched plasma application”. This application is based on the separation of a small amount of blood taken from a person into its components after it is centrifuged into a special tube, and the small amount of “platelet-enriched plasma” (PRP) obtained is returned to the same person by injection.
In what ways is the application made?
PRP applications are made by physicians through application kits produced by biotechnology companies. Masks prepared with PRP can be used in applications, as well as PRP can be used in mesotherapy and volume-enhancing treatments.
In the most general definition, in aesthetic medicine, PRP is used in body parts such as face, neck, décolleté area, hands, inner legs, arms;
one.Providing rapid structuring of the skin immediately after applications such as laser / peeling,
2.Reversing the results of years and exposure to UV rays on the skin, ensuring the correction of wrinkles, removal of depressions, and regaining its elasticity and brightness,
3.To ensure the control of wounds, cracks and situations where the quality of the skin is damaged, which takes a long time to heal,
4.It is successfully applied in many areas other than the above-mentioned areas, for purposes such as using it alone in hair loss or to strengthen the effect of other treatment options.
What is the purpose of PRP application?
Platelets – or platelets, in other words – are blood components that contain the “growth factors” necessary to repair damaged tissues in our body and return them to their natural state.
When any damage occurs in our tissues, our blood starts a repair process by collecting platelets to this tissue. The purpose of PRP application is to deliver much more platelets to this target tissue than can be carried by blood circulation, so the repair of the damaged tissue begins so quickly and powerfully and more quickly. results, because the density of platelets obtained with PRP is 2 to 4 times higher than that in blood.
The relationship between skin rejuvenation and wound healing
The aging of our skin is caused by losing some of its physical properties, just like in the process of injury. For this reason, in practices aimed at rejuvenating our skin, we actually imitate what our body does when healing a wound with various methods. For example, with methods such as laser and peeling, we cause a slight damage to our skin with certain limits and we use this damage as a trigger to heal our skin quickly. After this damage, growth factors are released and the healing process begins. Similarly, dermocosmetic products enable substances that restructure our skin or synthetically obtained growth factors to initiate a healing process.
The structure that can repair a damage to the skin in the most effective, fastest and most natural way is also a part of the whole to which the skin belongs, so plasma application has developed as a method that activates this magical power circulating in our veins.
In which areas is it applied?
PRP application is only one of the application areas of cellular therapy.
It is not a new method; application areas starting with dental (dental) implants; aesthetic medicine,
It is spreading rapidly in fields such as orthopedics and non-healing wound treatment.
In the near future, in the treatment of chronic pain, tendon injuries,
A large number of scientific studies on the use of PRP in rheumatic complaints are expected to be published.
