PRP PLATELET-RICH PLASMA®
What is Platelet-Rich Plasma?
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) is an autologous concentrated preparation of platelets and the associated growth factors in a small volume of plasma. Platelets are a natural source of a number of growth factors in their natural and biologically-determined ratios.
WHAT CAN BE TREATED BY PRP?
Fine Lines and Skin Quality PRP mesotherapy injections promote the process of natural tissue regeneration which naturally slows down as we age. PRP improves skin quality and smoothes fine lines. Dark Circles The eye area has very delicate skin that can appear bluish due to microcirculation. PRP mesotherapy injections stimulate circulation around the eye and as a result the under eye darkness will improve. Deep Wrinkles PRP can be combined with HA dermal fillers to restore youthful proportions to the volumes of the face. Areas include nasolabial folds, cheeks and jaws, periorbital area, crow’s feet, upper lip, nose and forehead. Scars PRP mesotherapy injections can greatly improve scars, acne scars, and stretch marks. Hair Loss PRP is a natural therapy that uses mesotherapy injections localized in the scalp to slow down hair loss and to stimulate hair growth. By exploiting regenerative potential contained in the platelets, this induces regeneration of the hair bulb environment, while increasing blood supply to the hair follicle. As a result, the hair becomes more enriched and stronger, in return enhancing the actual colour and brightness of the hair without any side effects.
What do Platelets do?
Platelets release growth factors which regulate the healing cascade by signaling to surrounding cells to repair damaged tissue and regenerate new tissue. Key growth factors involved in this process include but are not limited to: Platelet-Derived Growth Factor (PDGF) Transforming Growth Factor group (TGF) Epidermal Growth Factor (EGF) Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor (VEGF) Fibroblast Growth Factor (FGF) Keratinocyte Growth Factor (KGF)
