Platelet-rich plasma - what kind of treatment is it?

[one_half last="no"].

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatment is a procedure using a preparation obtained from the patient's peripheral blood, with up to four times the number of platelets, which stimulate tissue rejuvenation and regeneration processes.

Three stages of platelet-rich plasma treatment

The treatment proceeds in the following stages:

  • Collection by the doctor of between 9 and 60 ml of the patient's peripheral blood into vacuum tubes.
  • Preparation of platelet-rich plasma through a centrifugation process.
  • Platelet-rich plasma containing platelets taken into a syringe is then administered by the method of choice - through a mesotherapy treatment, either linearly or by cannula, following the application of local anaesthesia.

The most popular platelet-rich plasma therapy regimens

Platelet-rich plasma treatment, like other revitalisation treatments, should be performed in a series for better results.

  • For mesotherapy - 4 treatments every 2 weeks,
  • When these are linear or cannula-applied fillings -2 treatments every 3 weeks,
  • If it is a mask to accelerate healing processes after aesthetic medicine procedures - disposable,
  • When it is a cyclical treatment - 1 to 3 times a year in a series.

Platelet-rich plasma - what does the treatment offer?

The injection of platelet-rich plasma directly into the wrinkle area provides biostimulation and triggers the process of stimulating stem cells to proliferate and activates fibroblasts to produce collagen. As a result, this leads to skin cell regeneration and renewal, hydration and visible rejuvenation.

All blood components used for platelet-rich plasma treatment are autologous - they are the patient's own material, so the risk of a negative local immune system reaction, intolerance or allergy is excluded in this case.

Platelet-rich plasma lift treatment allows:

  • Set in motion a process of deep skin revitalisation,
  • Achieve a smoothing effect, unifying skin tone, improving elasticity and skin tone and density,
  • Smooth out wrinkles and skin folds,
  • Improve blood supply to the skin,
  • Rebuild collagen fibres,
  • Accelerate healing processes after aesthetic medicine procedures.

The first effects of treatment with platelet-rich plasma obtained from peripheral blood are visible after approximately 2 weeks. The process of tissue remodelling and visible rejuvenation begins as early as 48 hours after injection.
