PRP stands for platelet-rich plasma. The first step is to understand what platelets and plasma are. Platelets are small blood cells that stop bleeding in case of cuts. Adhesion and aggregation are the main mechanisms they use to stop bleeding from cuts.
They play an important role in wound healing. They are also useful in aesthetics because they encourage the growth and regeneration of new cells, giving a more attractive appearance. Blood plasma transports hormones, nutrients, and proteins to specific parts of the body.
To get platelet rich plasma, the blood must first be processed. We can see that PRP therapy involves using your own blood to improve your skin's appearance and tone your skin. There are also PRP kits that can be purchased commercially.
The special features of PRP treatment
It works with your blood
The centrifuge machine is the most popular method of preparing PRP solution from blood. It separates red blood cells from platelets and then collects plasma rich in platelets to be used in dermatology treatments.
The platelets produce growth factors
Platelets contain a lot of growth factors. These growth factors include fibronectin and epidermal growth factors. This treatment is more effective than other ways to fight the effects of aging because it uses growth factors. The treatment does not produce immediate results, as it relies on growth factors. This is unlike dermal fillers in the aesthetic industry.
This treatment is versatile
It can be used to treat a variety of conditions. Unlike other treatments that mainly cause the regeneration of skin cells (e.g., aesthetic enhancing), PRP can be used in a variety of different ways. It can be used for hair loss, tendon injuries, and tissue regeneration. It is used primarily for treating acne and scarring as well as tightening loose skin.
