Plasma therapy, also known as PRP, is platelet-rich plasma therapy. In recent years, it has been applied in many medical fields in cases where repair and tissue regeneration is desired and successful results are obtained.
It has been determined that when any part of our body is injured, some cells collect in this region and their concentration increases compared to other regions. These cells initiate some reactions and provide healing in the tissues. In many tissue regeneration processes, we intentionally create controlled damage to the tissues, which increases cell aggregation in the area, initiates healing and rejuvenates the area.
Plasma therapy is a treatment based on this mechanism. As if a damage has occurred, some cells and growth factors are concentrated in the area and thus the repair process is initiated.
HOW IS PLASMA THERAPY APPLIED?
The treatment is done in sessions with an interval of 15 days. The number of sessions is 3 or more depending on the treatment to be applied.
There is nothing to be careful about before or after the application. No examination is required before the application. It does not require a recovery period after the treatment, the patient can immediately return to his daily activities.
There are kits specially developed for treatment, which are disposable. The patient’s blood is taken into these tubes and separated. While the unwanted part of the blood settles down, the desired part is collected at the top, this part is applied to the area planned to be treated with a very short procedure with fine-tipped needles. The separated part contains platelets and growth factors. These initiate a series of repair and healing reactions, causing stem cells to gather in the area.
WHO IS NOT APPLIED TO PLASMA REPLACEMENT?
