PRP, stands for Platelet-Rich Plasma, is a concentrate of platelet-rich plasma protein derived from whole blood, centrifuged to remove red blood cells. The PRP therapy has the purpose to revive your natural beauty but in a natural way, improving local blood supply and hydration, your skin texture and tone will gradually improve and lead to a younger looking skin. The PRP is used in aesthetics, your skin cells components are harnessed to reach the skin rejuvenation.
How does PRP work?
To develop a PRP preparation, blood must first be drawn from a patient. The platelets are separated from other blood cells and their concentration is increased during a process called centrifugal. Then the increased concentration of platelets is combined with the remaining blood.
PRP can be carefully injected into the injured area. For example, in Achilles tendonitis, a condition commonly seen in runners and tennis players, the heel cord can become swollen, inflamed, and painful. A mixture of PRP and local anesthetic can be injected directly into this inflamed tissue. Afterwards, the pain at the area of injection may actually increase for the first week or two, and it may be several weeks before the patient feels a beneficial effect.
PRP may also be used to improve healing after surgery for some injuries. For example, an athlete with a completely torn heel cord may require surgery to repair the tendon. Healing of the torn tendon can possibly be improved by treating the injured area with PRP during surgery. This is done by preparing the PRP in a special way that allows it to actually be stitched into torn tissues.
The PRP treatment is performed in a series of three to four sessions, 3-8 weeks the treatments are recommended to be repeated every 6-12 months for optimal long lasting results. Visible results may take between 2-12 weeks and vary between individuals, depending on different factors, such as: general health, age, diet, smoking and skin type. PRP can potentially speed up the healing process, and can also be used to promote hair growth when injected into the scalp.
