PRP is the abbreviated name of the treatment method called “Platelet Rich Plasma–enriched plasma application from platelet direction”. This application is based on the separation of a small amount of blood taken from a person into its components after it is subjected to the centrifugation process by placing it in a special tube and giving back the obtained small amount of “platelet-enriched plasma” (PRP) to the same individual by injection.
What is the target in (PRP) application?
Platelets – or platelets, in other words – are blood components that contain the “growth factors” necessary to repair damaged tissues in our body and return them to their natural state. When a random damage occurs in our tissues, our blood starts a repair process by collecting platelets to this tissue. results, because the density of platelets obtained with PRP is 2 to 4 times higher than that in blood.
Is the purpose of PRP to ensure wound compliance? What is the relevance between the rejuvenation of the skin and the beautification of the wound?
The aging of our skin is caused by the loss of some physical properties, as in the process of injury. For this reason, in practices aimed at rejuvenating our skin, we imitate what our body does while beautifying a wound, in various ways. For example, with procedures such as laser and peeling, we cause limited and slight damage to our skin and we use this damage as a triggering force to quickly adapt our skin. After this damage, growth factors are released and the smoothing process begins. Dermocosmetic works, for example, enable the elements that restructure our skin or synthetically obtained growth factors to initiate a beautification process.
The structure that can repair a damage to the skin in the most effective, fastest and most natural way is a module of the whole to which the skin relates, so plasma application has developed as a system that activates this magical power circulating in our veins.
Is it a new formula? In which areas is it applied?
PRP application is only one of the application areas of cellular therapy. It is not a new formula; Application areas that started with dental (dental) implants are spreading rapidly in areas such as aesthetic medicine, orthopedics, non-beautifying wound treatment. In the near future, it is expected that many scientific studies on the use of PRP in the treatment of chronic pain, tendon injuries, and rheumatic complaints will be published.
In what ways is the application made?
Many of the PRP applications are made by doctors through application kits produced by the biotechnology company known as RegenLab. Masks prepared with PRP can be used in applications, as well as PRP can be used in mesotherapy and volume-enhancing treatments. In the most general definition, in aesthetic medicine, PRP is used in body parts such as face, neck, décolleté area, hands, inner legs, arms;
Ø To provide rapid structuring of the skin after applications such as laser / peeling,
Ø Ensuring the correction of wrinkles, removal of depressions, and regaining its flexibility and brightness, in a way that reverses the results of years and exposure to UV rays on the skin,
Ø To ensure the control of wounds, cracks and situations where skin quality is damaged, which takes a long time to beautify,
Ø To use alone in hair loss or to strengthen the effect of other treatment options.
It is successfully applied in many areas with targets such as .. and in many areas other than the ones mentioned above.

Is PRP application a kind of stem cell therapy?
Stem cell therapy or cellular therapy means introducing new cells to a damaged organ with the goal of curing an injury or disease. In PRP application, platelets are used as a factor that initiates and stimulates repair for the repair of damaged tissue. The two applications are different from each other in this sense.
Is it a safe practice to pass the patient’s own blood through the process and reintroduce it to the patient?
PRP application is “autologous”, that is, the platelets used are those taken from the patient, and the processes such as blood collection and separation of platelets are carried out with the help of a sterile and closed kit, so there is no risk of contamination from the outside. Apart from these, there is nothing added to the platelets given. For these reasons, this application can be considered credible.
How is PRP application done in practice?
2 or 3 tubes (16-23 ml) of blood are 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 tube in the kit and a blood product called PRP emerges. This product (PRP) is applied to the skin by means of filling or mesotherapy, its rejuvenating effect becomes evident with a bright and lively appearance quickly after the application.
It is an application of approximately 30 minutes in total. It is applied easily and painlessly.
Can processes such as taking blood and separating platelets be done in a laboratory?
In PRP application, all processes from blood collection to filling or mesotherapy or mask application should be done in one place for technical and hygienic reasons.
Since the platelets circulate freely in our blood, why don’t they go to the aging tissue by themselves and start this process?
In fact, the platelets that reach the tissues with the blood circulation do this to a certain extent, but in general, this trigger is not enough in an aging body. For this reason, platelets are weighted and turned into PRP and targeted tissues; It is applied to the face, length, hands and other areas.
Is there a single system to obtain PRP by aggravating the platelets?
Obtaining PRP by weighting platelets is related to technical possibilities. First of all, platelets should not be damaged randomly during this enrichment process. In addition, enrichment must necessarily be in scale. For example, a highly enriched PRP will not work. Furthermore, traces and methods with proven efficacy and safety should be used to return the blood trace obtained from a patient to the same patient. RegenLab works are those that have been tested for activity and reliability in this area, approved as medical equipment in European Union countries, bearing the CE stamp, and are used all over the world.
Does PRP absolutely need to be injected?
PRP can be applied to the skin with mesotherapy or filling formula, or it can be applied with the help of a mask, it is also possible to mix PRP into a special cream and apply it.
Does the mask provide a rejuvenating effect as much as the mesotherapy method?
It provides. Because PRP applied through filling or mesotherapy is applied by being impregnated with a paper mask for convenience, it will show its effect no matter how it is given to the skin. In addition, PRP can be used not only in rejuvenation, but also in non-healing wounds, open wounds, chin implants and many similar areas.
Is there a certain dose of PRP to be applied? How much is needed? How much is applied?
There is no problem of overdose here. All of the obtained PRP can be used. In general, a total of 8 milliliters of PRP can be obtained with a mesotherapy kit. This is sufficient to treat all areas such as the face, neck, décolleté, outer arms, inner legs.
A healthy glow appears on the skin quickly after the application. Later, this bright appearance will regress a little, but after 3 or 4 applications (ie after 1 cure) a lasting effect becomes evident.
How many applications are required to achieve the full effect?
The full effect will appear in the form of a permanent glow, a recovery after a total of 3 or 4 applications, that is, after a cure is completed.
Do the positive results obtained with a cure completely disappear afterward?
It does not disappear, but it is necessary to repeat the cures consisting of 3 or 4 applications every 10-12 months. In this case, the effect of the applied cures is equivalent to a permanent rejuvenating effect. In other words, a cure consisting of 3 or 4 applications to be made every 15 days should be repeated every year on average.
What is the most valuable advantage of PRP application?
The rejuvenating effect provided is not only heavy on areas like the effects obtained in filling and similar applications, but also spreads over a larger part of the skin and is more permanent. The positive results provided by other formulas continue for a certain period of time, but the positive results of PRP belong entirely to the individual who is applied. It won’t disappear.
Are there any undesirable effects in this application?
The patient is given a device (PRP) produced from his own blood. The process is simply to initiate and accelerate the wound healing process. The probability of competition with an undesirable effect is quite low.
Does PRP application hurt?
PRP application is done by injection outside the mask. A greater pain sensation is not expected than the discomfort felt during blood collection. Mesotherapy with PRP is mostly applied 1.5 mm below the skin, and deeper application is required to add volume to the skin, but in these applications, anesthetic creams applied externally prevent the feeling of pain.
Are there any individuals who have objections to PRP application?
This application cannot be performed in patients with insufficient platelet count and cancer patients.
What should be the expectations from the PRP application?
PRP application for cosmetic purposes has superior features to meet many expectations. For;
Ø It is long-acting,
Ø Revitalizes and structures the skin in the most natural way.
Ø It is applied easily and faithfully.
Ø Reinforces not only the formation of new collagen, but also all vital functions of the skin.
Ø Removes wrinkles and lines by “rejuvenating” the skin, not “filling” it.
Ø After the first application, the bright and healthy appearance can slowly regress after a while, for this, successive applications should be made and the expansion effect should be accumulated.
Ø When the cures consisting of 3 or 4 applications are repeated once every 10-12 months, a long-lasting rejuvenating effect will be provided.
