Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
In order to understand better this technique it is necessary to understand that the cells are living structures, which have the ability to perform different functions and to respond to environmental stimuli. And that the main idea consists of multimolecular process acting simultaneously in different cell types by stimulating repair, repudiation and angiogenesis (formation of new blood vessels from pre-existing vessels), proliferation and cellular differentiation, extracellular matrix synthesis and remodeling.\
Already have long known that platelets are blood cells responsible for stop the bleeding in the case of vascular injury. But they are also a natural source of growth factors and have the peculiarity of release these proteins in the same lesion site providing the ability to regenerate tissues and remodel the extracellular matrix. In this peculiarity of origin platelet growth factors, is based on the technique, as these factors make that you become a treatment that accelerates the process of restoration of the involved tissues getting back much before the injury, even at half time. As well as stimulates the regeneration of tissues exposed to these cellular factors.
The great advantage of this technique is in the fact of being an autologous preparation, non-toxic, non-allergenic, obtained by centrifugation of the blood of the patient to intervene whose function is directly linked to the release of the own platelet growth factors. The main objective of the PRP is improving the quality of skin, achieving an effect of luminosity, stain removal and recovery of photodamage. Some lines may decrease, but it is not its main effect. Filler with hyaluronic acid or botulinum toxin treatments are recommended for this.
It is a simple outpatient technique, based on the intradermal application of Plasma rich in platelets (PRP) to activate the functions of the fibroblast cell determines the structure and quality of the skin in a natural way.
This treatment is recommended starting at age 30, age in which the skin begins to lose its power of regeneration (loss of collagen) or simply when the signs of aging are visible. Can be applied both as preventive treatment of a young skin or how to reinstate an aged skin.
Protocol with platelet-rich plasma is specific for each patient depending on the degree of ageing and the characteristics of your skin. In general, middle-aged people, are made of 2-3 sessions a year separated by 30 – 45 days, and then repeated once a year to continue stimulating the fibroblasts to produce new collagen.
