PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) Treatment
PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) formula, which is based on the logic of stem cells, is used in the treatment of wrinkles, skin rejuvenation, scars and acne scars and hair loss. A special kit should be used for the Prp treatment to be more effective.
For PRP treatment, the patient’s own blood is taken and centrifuged at 3000 rpm for 8 minutes. It is combined with a special kit that provides DNA activation. Activated platelets and leukocytes secrete growth factors. In the PRP procedure, growth factors trigger the migration and proliferation of stem cells. Thus, tissue regeneration is thought to occur. The most valuable advantage of this method is that it is obtained from the patient’s own blood and does not carry the risk of allergy.
PRP formula and curiosities
1) What is the recommended number of applications in PRP treatment and what should be the application intervals?
The PRP procedure can be done with 2 to 4 week intervals. An average of 3 to 4 sessions is recommended for PRP treatment.
2) When the PRP treatment sessions are over, after how long should it be repeated?
In general, treatment maintenance can be done every 8 to 10 months.
3) How long does the expected skin regeneration effect last on average?
Maintenance therapy is necessary as the aging process continues. Prp treatment is a very effective way to prevent hair loss and grow new hair.
Fibrocell (Stem Cell Method)
The fibrocell procedure, that is, the stem cell system, is an application that comes to the fore in the midst of skin rejuvenation methods. In this technique, stem cells called fibroblasts are reproduced in tissue cultures with a small module taken from the skin behind the ear. The resulting heavy cell cocktail is given back to the skin.
What are the usage areas of the fibrocell technique:
Reducing wrinkles on the face and décolleté
Sagging especially observed in the chin and neck area
Filling the pitted scars left after acne and chickenpox
Treatment of dull and porous landscape that has lost its vitality due to environmental factors such as sun damage and smoking
Shaping and plumping the lips
Treatment of burns and surgical scars
Treatment of chronic wounds
What are the characteristics of fibroblast cells given to the person as aggravated in the fibrocell method?
Fibroblast cells are the main cells responsible for collagen synthesis in the body. Besides collagen, they are formed by elastic fibers and hyaluronic acid fibroblasts. Fibroblast cells in human connective tissue play an important role in wound healing and tissue repair. However, after the age of 25, the fibroblast cells in the person begin to decrease and as a result of this decrease, hiding and wrinkles begin to appear on the skin.
How are fibroblasts taken in the laboratory to be produced in the fibrocell method?
It is sufficient to take a 2-3 mm skin module from the skin behind the ear with local anesthesia. Fibroblast cells in this module are grown in tissue cultures in the laboratory. Although it varies from individual to individual, the first solution containing heavy fibroblasts is obtained after about a month. After the first application to the skin, production continues in the laboratory. The newly obtained solutions are used in the second and third sessions.
How is the application made?
After the application area is anesthetized with local anesthetic creams (EMLA), the fibroblast culture fluid sent from the laboratory is given to the middle skin with small injections as in the mesotherapy technique. In each application, approximately 20-40 million fibroblast cells are injected into the skin. Treatment is usually applied in 3 sessions with an average of 4 weeks. At the end of three sessions, the number of cells delivered to the skin can increase to 100 million.
What are the results of fibrocell treatment:
The fibroblasts transferred to the skin with fibrocell treatment begin to repair the damaged tissue. Although the effect starts slower than other systems, it provides a regular improvement for 6-24 months. As a result, wrinkles and sagging are reduced and a bright and vibrant skin emerges. The improvement achieved is long-term and has been shown to persist even after 4-5 years.
What are the advantages of fibrocell treatment:
Since it is obtained from the patient’s own cells and does not contain foreign elements, it does not carry the risk of allergy.
Its restorative effect is more obvious than many other methods.
It is effective for a longer period of time (about 4-5 years) compared to other methods such as filler or PRP.
No side effects have been reported.
