PRP stands for "Platelet Rich Plasma", that is, "plasma enriched in platelet (thrombocyte)". This process is basically a skin rejuvenation technique performed by placing a certain amount of blood taken from the patient into a special tube and separating it by centrifugation, and then injecting the platelet-rich plasma obtained into the same patient.
For PRP application, an average of 8-20 cc of blood is taken from the patient into a special tube. This tube is placed in devices called centrifuge and rotates at high speeds, and the blood is separated according to the weight of the substance. Separation is completed by using a special gel. The platelet-rich plasma, which provides regeneration and healing in the tissues obtained, is injected into the areas where the treatment will be applied.
The effect of PRP application is to regenerate by stimulating aged and damaged skin tissues. Platelet cells, which are found in plasma in a much higher amount than normal blood, are cells that are involved in the repair and healing of damaged tissues. When damage occurs in an area of the body, the healing and repair process of this area begins with thrombocyte cells. Since the thrombocyte and growth factors in PRP content are higher than in normal blood, a fast and strong repair process is triggered.
PRP application has a wide range of uses and can be applied for many purposes. It is widely used in the form of scar, acne and acne scar treatments, antiaging and skin rejuvenation, hair treatments and hair loss prevention approaches, treatment of various orthopedic problems, removal of cracks, and treatment of skin blemishes.
PRP treatment can also be performed as an auxiliary method in combination with various other procedures. In some peeling and laser treatments, after the procedure or as a support approach in hair transplantation, it can be applied to accelerate the repair and healing.
First effects are observed immediately after PRP application. However, it may take 2 to 3 months for the full effects to appear. Of course, at this point, it is also important for what purpose PRP is used. In each approach, the time it takes for the effects to appear may be different.
As we mentioned above, PRP has a wide range of uses. Therefore, the number of sessions and their intervals may vary. In an average treatment approach, we can say that sessions are held every 2 weeks. The number of PRP sessions can be 3 to 5 sessions.
