What is PRP Treatment?

PRP treatment is a popular method of skin rejuvenation. Those who have had PRP hair and other skin treatments benefited from this treatment.

Platelets, which are the basic cells of our blood; They are the smallest cells with no nucleus in the blood. Main function of these cells are to ensure coagulation. The platelets in the blood that are released during a cut form a protective layer that prevents bleeding at the wound site. Thanks to this layer, the bleeding stops. This layer also plays a preventive role in wound healing. Thanks to the growth factors contained in the platelets, new tissues form at the wound site within 7 to 14 days. Accordingly, when the scab falls, we see that fresh and pink skin forms again. This wound healing power from the platelets is used effectively in skin rejuvenation, as is used today in many areas of medicine.

First, 10 ml of blood are taken from the person. After applying centrifuge to platelets for 15 minutes, platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is obtained. Since this plasma contains abundant activated platelets, it also contains abundant growth factors, which are the most important factors in wound healing and skin regeneration. The amount of growth factor in PRP is approximately four times higher than in normal blood. Thanks to this plasma, which contains a large amount of healing and repair factors, the level of collagen and elastin increases in the area of ​​application. Accordingly, the applied skin area is refreshed, tightened, gains brightness and becomes alive.
