PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) means plasma enriched from platelets.
PRP is a medical application. It should only be done by doctors.
When the PRP process is decided, the person’s blood is taken into a tube containing a special solution that prevents coagulation. It is ensured that the elements of the blood are separated by rotating it in a certain time in the instrument called centrifuge. Thus, red cells called erythrocytes in the tube are collected at the bottom of the tube, white cells called leukocytes are in the middle, and platelets called platelets are collected in the upper plasma part. it is poor in platelets and is called PPP.
Platelets have a role in blood coagulation in the body, but they also secrete growth factors, which have the feature of making a tissue damage fit.
Therefore, the PRP obtained from the centrifuged blood, that is, the part with abundant platelets, is applied to the desired area of the face, neck, hair, etc., either by the mesotherapy technique or by turning it into a mask. Thus, natural growth factors that will reverse the effects of tissue damage or aging are given to the desired area.

PRP is not a stem cell treatment. However, it indirectly works on stem cells. Growth factors in platelets are stimuli that transmit the message of producing fibroblasts in skin cells. Fibroblasts are also key structures for producing collagen and elastin.
Does PRP have any side effects or risk of infection?
If hygienic conditions are followed, there is no risk and no side effects if it is centrifuged in the right time and in the wrong time. A disposable injection and tube is required for each session. He is extremely faithful. After the application, bruising can be seen at the needle sites.
