PRP Therapy

What is PRP?

PRP, derived from the initials of Platelet-Rich Plasma, stands as one of the most advanced methods in cellular therapy, particularly in the realm of skin rejuvenation. Platelets, also known as thrombocytes, are cells present in our blood, with an average count of around 300,000 and a lifespan of four days. These cells, with a diameter of 2-4 mm, play a vital role in blood clotting, maintaining fluidity, and cleansing wound sites. Moreover, growth factors released from platelets activate the cellular repair mechanism, facilitating the healing of wounds

Anti-Aging and PRP Relationship:
The stimulation of the skin through light, laser, or chemical peels involves inducing repair and rejuvenation in the skin with limited damage. In essence, by creating minimal damage that mimics the process of wound healing, the skin is triggered to rejuvenate. This prompts cells to spring into action, initiating production in a manner reminiscent of wound healing. They produce collagen and elastic fibers, enhance circulation, cleanse the stimulated area of the tissue, resulting in improved color, healed blood vessels, and overall better skin health. If the skin is not stimulated, it ages – my slogan, so to speak. However, what I want to emphasize here is that by using the right methods suitable for the skin, be they mechanical or chemical, with or without needles, we can reverse the years and achieve anti-aging.

How Effective is PRP on Its Own? What are the Results, and How Long Does it Last?

Cellular therapy aims to stimulate cell function and provide the necessary materials. This method, by providing an environment for growth factors that trigger cell activity, has become a fixture in anti-aging treatments. The effectiveness of PRP treatment alone will vary based on the individual's age, experiences, and the visible and analyzed results of the skin. PRP treatment is beneficial for sun-damaged and sagging skin, as well as for skin that appears lifeless and dull.

Are There Any Side Effects of the Treatment?

Since this treatment is associated with autologous delivery, meaning the individual's cells are reintroduced to themselves, there is no harm. However, it is appropriate for the treating physician to support the patient with the right treatments if necessary, in terms of expectations.

Can it Produce the Same Effect in Every Age Group and Skin Type?
The results of PRP treatment in Antalya are related to the individual's age, how they protect their skin from the sun, whether they smoke, their stress levels, nutrition, and sleep patterns. This applies to every treatment – it involves a living mechanism made up of human cells. Triggered cells begin reflecting the tensioning effects of the collagen and elastic fibers they produce within 2-3 weeks, and the moisturizing effect on the skin can be noticed earlier.

Which Aging Issues Can it Particularly Address?
It can offer a solution to the uneven color issues in sun-affected skin and enhance the skin's defense, providing benefits for dryness, damage, or issues related to skin eczema. The application can be performed for anyone aged 30 and above to promote skin health.
