Wrinkles that occur on the skin with advancing age can be a serious problem for many people. Many cosmetic products and various treatment methods are applied for skin rejuvenation. With PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma), signs of aging and blemishes on the skin are no longer a problem. With PRP, you can get rid of blemishes and acne scars on the skin, and have a brighter, tighter and more vibrant skin. With PRP, which is made by injecting the plasma obtained from the person’s own blood into the skin, the skin gets a brighter and younger appearance. PRP provides a younger appearance by repairing the damaged tissues caused by aging and can be applied to the face, neck, décolleté and outer face of the hands.
PRP is the abbreviation for platelet-enriched plasma therapy. This method is applied in the form of giving back the platelet-rich plasma obtained after a series of processes by putting a small amount of blood taken from the person in a special tube, to the same person by injection. Blood cells called platelets contain the necessary “growth factors” to repair the damaged tissues in our body and enable them to return to their natural state. If there is any damage to our tissues, these blood cells come to the damaged tissue and initiate the repair process. In PRP treatment, more cells accumulate in the damaged tissue than the platelets collected under normal conditions, and thus the repair process begins quickly and strongly.
How is PRP treatment applied?
For treatment, approximately 10 CC of blood is taken from the patient. It is centrifuged in a special tube. As a result of this process, more platelets than normal accumulate in the plasma. This platelet-enriched plasma is given to the same person by injection. Since the person’s own blood product is used, no allergic reaction is observed. The application is performed in 3-4 sessions with intervals of 4-6 weeks. It can be used together with laser systems, peeling and dermaroller methods in skin rejuvenation treatment.
In which cases PRP is not applied?
Patients with insufficient platelet count
Those taking blood thinners
Patients with active infection
Areas where PRP is used in dermatology
Skin rejuvenation: Studies show that with PRP treatment, the collagen structure of the skin, which decreases with aging, is renewed. PRP provides a younger appearance by repairing the damaged tissues caused by aging. For this purpose, applications can be made on the face, neck, décolleté and outer face of the hands.
Hair loss: PRP alone is an effective treatment for non-genetic hair loss. It is used alone or in combination with hair transplantation methods in genetic hair loss.
Wound healing:It has healing effects on long-term wounds that do not heal in the body, bedsores seen in bed-bound patients, and leg wounds caused by vascular disease.
