PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) is a skin rejuvenation method. In PRP treatment, a small amount of blood is taken from the patient. Blood is separated from its components by a special treatment. The platelet rich serum is injected into the patient.
The growth factors in platelets help to reconstruct damaged tissue, stem cell proliferation, and increase defense resistance against infections.
Treatment areas of PRP
PRP treatment is used for wrinkles, stains, acne and scars, skin cracks and hair loss. After treatment, a decrease in sagging and wrinkle marks is observed.
Is PRP a drug?
PRP is not a drug and does not contain any substance other than the patient’s own blood. The effect is limited to the region where it is applied. It does not cause side effects in kidney, liver and stomach. Does not contain cortisone. PRP includes growth factors that allow the cells to recover and proliferate into the body. These factors also have positive effects on the formation of new vessels, prevention of infections and production of tissue proteins.
Things to consider after treatment
After treatment, ice can be applied for pain and paracetamol derivative painkillers can be used. Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (such as voltaren, naproxen, majaly) are not recommended for reducing the effectiveness of PRP administration. Resting is an important part of recovery, and therefore, heavy exercise and sports are not recommended after PRP.
There may be swelling and pain at the injection site after treatment. This pain may persist for several days, but this problem can be resolved with simple painkillers and ice application. PRP has no side effects in internal organs such as kidney and liver stomach. There is no risk of an allergic reaction as the person’s own blood is used.
