PRP, taken from the initials of the words Platelet Rich Plasma; Today, it is one of the best points reached in cellular therapy, which is one of the skin rejuvenation methods. Platelet means thrombocyte; Platelets are cells that exist in our blood. Average numbers
About 300,000 and their lifespan is 4 days. These cells with a diameter of 2-4 mm fulfill the coagulation or fluidity properties of the blood and the cleaning of the wound site in the healing of wounds. In addition, growth factors released from platelets activate the repair mechanism of cells and provide healing of wounds.
Anti-aging and PRP relationship;
Stimulating the skin with lights, lasers or chemical peels actually means triggering skin repair and rejuvenation with limited damage. In short, it stimulates the skin by pretending to cause very slight damage to the skin; activating the wound healing mechanism; It is a trigger to rejuvenate the skin. Because cells take action after stimulation; production begins as if mimicking wound healing, collagen and elastic fiber are produced, circulation increases, the stimulated area of the tissue is cleaned and purified; therefore, its color is lightened, its vessels are healed, and the health of the skin is restored to be better than before.
If the skin is not stimulated, it ages; What I want to emphasize here is that we can turn the years back and make anti-aging by stimulating the skin by using the right methods suitable for the skin, mechanical or chemical, with or without needles.
How effective is PRP alone? What are the results and how long does the effect last?
What is meant by the cellular therapy method is to encourage the cells to work and to give them the materials they need. Since this method provides an environment for growth factors that trigger the functioning of cells, it has an unchanging place in anti-aging treatment. The adequacy of PRP treatment alone will vary according to the age, experience of the person, and the visible and analyzed result of the skin. Even if the skin is sun-worn and sagging, it just looks lifeless and pale. .
Are there any side effects of the treatment?
Since this treatment is autologous, that is, it is related to the reintroduction of one’s own cell, there is no harm, it can be applied; however, in terms of expectations, it is appropriate for the practicing physician to support his patient with the right treatments if necessary.
