What is Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)?
PRP mesotherapy is a procedure involving the use of a fully natural and biocompatible substance derived from the patient's blood. PRP is one of the most popular and favored methods in aesthetic medicine, colloquially known as the "vampire lift." PRP, or Platelet-Rich Plasma, is a preparation containing a concentrate of blood platelets rich in growth factors. This preparation is applied to the skin using micro-needles. When PRP is injected subcutaneously, it activates blood platelets and releases growth factors contained within them. These growth factors play a crucial role in skin regeneration. They accelerate cell proliferation, increase the number of blood vessels and nourishment to cells, activate stem cells, stimulate fibroblasts to produce collagen and elastin, ultimately enhancing the skin's condition, improving its tension and elasticity. PRP also positively influences the nourishment of hair follicles, slowing down the hair loss process.
Two methods of PRP therapy are distinguished:
High-concentration Platelet-Rich Plasma: This method uses high-specialization technology, resulting in high efficiency by achieving over a ten-fold increase in blood platelets and growth factors.
Standard Platelet-Rich Plasma: In this method, PRP is produced using a classic laboratory centrifuge, resulting in lower efficiency but still allowing for a five-fold concentration of blood platelets and growth factors.
Preparation for the Procedure: As a larger volume of the patient's blood is needed for the procedure compared to a routine blood test, it's advisable to maintain proper hydration, preferably with water. Additionally, three days before the planned procedure, it's important to avoid medications that increase blood clotting, such as aspirin, as blood clotting disorders are a contraindication for this procedure.
High-concentration Platelet-Rich Plasma: The procedure begins by collecting the patient's blood into a sterile tube. The volume of blood collected depends on the size of the treatment area to be subsequently injected. This blood is then processed through specialized equipment to create a high concentration of blood platelets and growth factors. This concentrate is drawn into smaller syringes and then injected subcutaneously into the desired area. The entire procedure takes about an hour, including the time required for local anesthesia.
Standard Platelet-Rich Plasma: The procedure is quite similar, but with a smaller amount of blood collected (approximately 9 ml), and the spinning process in a conventional laboratory centrifuge takes only a few minutes. This results in a smaller amount of platelet concentrate, with a concentration of blood platelets and growth factors more than two times lower than high-concentration PRP. This method is suitable for revitalizing smaller areas of the body, such as the skin around the eyes, lips, or other smaller regions.
