What is PRP?
PRP is the short name of the biological treatment technique called “Platelet Rich Plasma-platelet enriched plasma application”. Application; It starts with the centrifugation of a small amount of blood taken from the person in a sterile tube produced for the purpose, and as a result of the process, the blood is separated into its components. A small amount of “platelet-enriched plasma” (PRP) obtained from the tube is given back to the individual by injection.
What is the Goal in PRP Treatment?
Platelets (or platelets) are blood components that contain “growth factors” necessary for the repair of damaged tissues.
Under normal conditions, when a damage occurs in our tissues, our blood platelets are collected in this tissue and a repair process is initiated.
The formation of spots, wrinkles and sagging is also the result of damage of various types (ultraviolet, cigarette-exposed skin, environmental damage) to which our skin is exposed.
Aggravating the platelets and giving them to a tissue will facilitate the removal of these damages.
The goal of PRP application; The aim is to deliver a much greater number of platelets to the tissue than can be transported by the blood circulation. Thus, the repair of damaged tissue begins so quickly and strongly and results more quickly, because the density of the delivered platelets is 2 to 4 times higher than in the blood.
In Which Situations Is PRP Treatment Used?
-Skin renewal (the most obvious effect is that the dullness and dullness of the skin will improve within 15 days.)
-Tightening of the tissues around the eyes and under the eyes
How is PRP Treatment Performed in Practice?
8 cc of blood is taken from the person to whom the application will be made, and platelets are separated in the centrifuge device. The separated platelets become heavy and accumulate in the special tube in the kit. The resulting serum is applied to damaged skin areas with microneedles.
How Long Does PRP Application Take? Any Special Conditions Required?
It is an application of approximately 30 minutes in total. A local anesthetic cream is applied and afterwards, the process is painless. After the application, it can be returned to daily life without the need for a smoothing process.
Where and by whom should PRP Treatment be done?
Every stage, from blood collection to the injection process, should be performed by your physician personally, in a clinic or office conditions, for technical and hygienic reasons.
Is there a single method to obtain PRP by aggravating the platelets?
No, PRP can be obtained with many techniques. For example, blood taken into the analysis tube for diagnostic purposes can also be used to obtain PRP. However, it may be inconvenient to give the PRP obtained under these conditions back to the person.
If PRP can be easily obtained, how can it be a problem to use PRP obtained from assay tubes?
No matter how easy it is to obtain, in order for the obtained biological material (PRP) to be returned to the individual, the kits used during the process must comply with certain medical standards and in the classification of medical equipment approved by the competent authorities. The platelets obtained should not be damaged during the process, and should be able to produce growth factors in the same extent and variety as they produce in the blood’s structure, that is, when they are in their natural state. As a result, the platelets, which will start the beautification process in the tissues, may not be able to produce the desired quality of growth factor. For this reason, it is necessary to use kits produced for this purpose.
A very valuable point; Ask your doctor to see the special PRP tubes before PRP is made, and your doctor should paste the barcode of the special PRP kit on your document! This is an indication that CE-documented, FDA-approved, original PRP has been applied to you.
