PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma-Platelet) is a platelet and clot cell enriched plasma process. In this process, blood (8 to 20 cc) from the patient is centrifuged. The resulting plasma is injected into the area that needs to be repaired.
It aims to strengthen and accelerate the self-healing reflex of the impaired tissues intended for treatment. Since the patient’s own blood is used in the applied plasma, it does not cause any side effects in the body. The most important advantage of the “PRP” application is that the rejuvenation provided in the skin is seen not only in the area where it is applied but in the large part of the skin.
How is prp (stem cell treatment) applied?
“Platelet Rich Plasma” is not a surgical practice. No anesthesia is required. The patient can return to his/her daily life after the session (by paying attention to the recommendations of the doctor). The patient’s own blood is injected under the tissue of the application regions with the plasma needle.
Application areas are quite wide. It is used in accelerating the healing process after removal of traces, spots and blemishes, hair loss caused by effects such as age and rays of sun and dental implant applications and facilitating the recovery process after plastic surgeries.
Advantages of PRP application:
