What is PRP Skin Rejuvenation? How to Obtain?

“We always strive to do our best to meet your needs.”

Platelet rich plasma, that is, (PRP = Platelet Rich Plasma, Platelet = Platelet,  Rich = Rich, Plasma = Serum) Blood Serum; It is a yellow colored blood fluid containing only cells and electrolytes after the red blood cells that give color to our blood are separated (removed from the blood fluid). platelet; Blood cells are the first to go to the damaged area in tissues and organs in our body. It stops bleeding by clinging to the wall of the bleeding vessel and forming a platelet plug. Then, to repair the damage, it secretes “growth factors” surrounded by many structures called “granules”. Platelet Rich Plasma; It is a collection of platelets accumulated in excess of what should be present in the serum.

When BEAUTY is mentioned, the first thing that comes to mind is the face. Facial beauty consists of many elements that complement each other. Each eye, lip or nose may be three-dimensionally perfect, or even perfect in harmony with the face shape, but if your skin is beautiful and smooth, it means you have achieved holistic beauty. Beautiful skin has not aged or lost its elasticity and vitality. Aging begins with loss of skin elasticity and then becomes visible or noticeable when the support of the subcutaneous fat tissue is lost. AGING is a slowly progressing, long-term effect that occurs due to the negative effects of the external environment such as air pollution, long exposure to the sun, etc. and internal factors (smoking, chronic diseases and drugs, etc.). Stopping aging is a good effort and requires serious measures, reversing aging is a situation known as impossible and unsolvable, and catching both together is a situation that we call impossible. Many methods such as laser, chemical peeling and mesotherapy applications have been applied in this field until today. The aim of these methods is to damage the skin and benefit from the healing effects of platelets, as in wound healing. But now, with advances in “stem cells”, it has become possible to stop and even reverse aging. At this point, PRP emerges as a method that amazes us and achieves the impossible.

PRP is the application of a small amount of “platelet-enriched plasma” (PRP), which is obtained by placing a small amount of blood taken from a person and the platelets in our blood into a special tube, subjecting it to centrifugation and then separating it into its components (that is, by rotating it rapidly in a tube thousands of times per minute). ), is the process of returning it to the skin, hair or damaged tissue by injection into the same person. Just like in organ transplantation, when platelets are applied to the skin or the hairy part of our skin while they are still biologically alive, they secrete biological substances called “growth factors” of which there are more than 60 types…

Effects of “growth factors”

1. Rejuvenation of our skin (Reducing wrinkles, giving elasticity and shine to the skin, erasing sun spots), Providing rapid restructuring of the skin immediately after applications such as laser / peeling, Correcting wrinkles and eliminating depressions in a way that reverses the results of years and exposure to UV rays on the skin,

2. To control wounds that take a long time to heal, cracks and conditions where the skin quality is damaged. Self-repair of our damaged tissues (removing all kinds of scars such as acne, razor marks, surgery, stretch marks),

3. It is successfully applied in many areas other than the areas mentioned above, for purposes such as stopping hair loss, treating hair loss or strengthening the effect of hair transplantation. They are “miraculous” structures that allow us to reverse the negative effects of years and external factors on our bodies…

In aesthetic medicine, PRP is used in mesotherapy and volume enhancing treatments on body parts such as face, neck, décolleté area, hands, inner legs, upper arms and hair. It is also used successfully for this purpose in dental implants, orthopedic interventions and non-healing wound treatments. PRP is also used in heart surgeries to reduce the risk of infection, tennis elbow to accelerate the healing process, chronic pain treatment, rheumatic complaints, and tendon injuries. Why is blood not taken and used? because the density of platelets obtained with PRP is 6 to 8 times higher than that in blood.

PRP is a system that helps regenerate tissues by stimulating and activating stem cells in the areas where it is injected into the body.

How is PRP Applied?

PRP, or Platelet-Rich Plasma, is a procedure that involves extracting platelets from the patient’s blood and applying them back to the skin to stimulate rejuvenation. Here is how the procedure is typically carried out:

  1. Blood Collection:

    • Three tubes of blood are drawn from the patient.
    • The blood is then processed in a centrifuge machine to separate platelets.
  2. Platelet-Rich Plasma Creation:

    • Platelets in the centrifuged tubes concentrate, forming PRP.
    • PRP is a blood product that contains a high concentration of platelets.
  3. Application:

    • PRP can be applied to the skin using methods like fillers or mesotherapy.
    • The application is done through injection, and the procedure takes about 20-25 minutes.
  4. Repetitive Sessions:

    • It is recommended to have 3-4 sessions with a 2-3 week interval.
    • The initial glow and vibrancy are visible after the first application, but the full effect is achieved with repeated sessions.
  5. Combination with Other Treatments:

    • PRP can be combined with other treatments like dermal fillers or incorporated into skincare products for extended effects.
  6. Post-Treatment Effects:

    • The skin immediately shows a healthy glow after the first application.
    • Subsequent sessions enhance and prolong the rejuvenating effects.

PRP for Various Areas:

  • Effective for facial, neck, décolletage, hands, inner thighs, and arms.
  • Beneficial after procedures like laser peeling to expedite skin regeneration.
  • Addresses wrinkles, fine lines, and enhances elasticity and brightness.
  • Aids in healing for prolonged wound recovery, scars, and damaged skin.

Duration of PRP Effects:

  • The initial glow appears immediately after the first application.
  • A series of 3-4 sessions creates a longer-lasting youthfulness.
  • Results are not temporary; however, maintenance sessions every 10-12 months are recommended.

Advantages of PRP:

  • Long-lasting and revitalizing effects.
  • Simple, safe, and quick application.
  • Stimulates collagen and hyaluronic acid production.
  • Unlike fillers, PRP provides an overall rejuvenating effect on a larger area of the skin.

When is PRP Recommended:

  • For aesthetic purposes on various body regions.
  • Post-laser or peeling procedures to enhance skin regeneration.
  • To address wrinkles, sun damage, and improve skin texture.
  • As a complementary treatment for hair loss.

Is PRP Painful:

  • Discomfort during blood collection is minimal.
  • Application is typically through injections but can be mixed with topical creams for numbing.
  • PRP is not administered in individuals with platelet deficiency or certain medical conditions.

Safety of PRP:

  • PRP is derived from the patient’s blood, eliminating the risk of allergic reactions.
  • It is not animal-derived, immunological, bacterial, or toxic.

Note: Individual responses may vary, and personalized advice from a qualified professional is recommended.
