PRP, taken from the initials of the words Platelet Rich Plasma; Today, it is one of the best points reached in cellular therapy, which is one of the skin rejuvenation methods. Platelet means thrombocyte; Platelets are cells that exist in our blood. Their number is around 300 000 and their lifespan is 4 days. These cells with a diameter of 2-4 mm fulfill the coagulation or fluidity properties of the blood and the cleaning of the wound site in the healing of wounds. In addition, growth factors released from platelets activate the repair mechanism of cells and provide healing of wounds.
Anti-aging and PRP relationship;
Skin regeneration and restoration are actually triggered by stimulating the skin with light lasers or chemical peels. Activating the wound healing process is actually a trigger to rejuvenate the skin. In other words, it stimulates the skin by pretending to inflict very minor injury to the skin. As a result of the action that cells take after being stimulated, which starts with production that mimics wound healing, collagen and elastic fiber are produced, circulation increases, the stimulated area of the tissue is cleaned and purified; as a result, its color becomes lighter, its vessels are healed, and the health of the skin is restored to be better than before. The skin ages if it is not stimulated; My slogan is almost, but what I want to emphasize here is that by stimulating the skin by using the right methods suitable for the skin, mechanical or chemical, with or without needles, we can turn the years back and do anti-aging.
How effective is PRP alone? What are the results and how long does the effect last?
What is meant by the cellular therapy method is to encourage the cells to work and to give them the materials they need. Since this method provides an environment for growth factors that trigger the functioning of cells, it has settled in a place that will not change in anti-aging treatment. The adequacy of PRP treatment alone will vary according to the age, experience of the person, and the visible and analyzed result of the skin. Even if the skin is worn and sagging from the sun, it is beneficial to do it, it can only be done if it looks lifeless and pale.
Are there any side effects of the treatment?
Since this treatment is autologous, that is, it is related to the reintroduction of one's own cell, there is no harm, it can be applied; however, in terms of expectations, it is appropriate for the practicing physician to support his patient with the right treatments, if necessary.
Is it possible to have the same effect in every age group and skin type?
The results of Antalya PRP treatment are related to the age of the person, the way he protects his skin from the sun, whether he smokes or not, stress, nutrition, and sleep conditions. This is true in every treatment, it is a living mechanism made up of human cells. The triggered cells begin to reflect the stretching activities of the collagen and elastic fibers they produce within 2-3 weeks, and the moisturizing effect on the skin can be noticed earlier.
In particular, which aging problems can it solve?
It can solve the problem of non-homogeneous color in the skin affected by the sun, as well as increase the defense of the skin and improve the problems related to dryness or damage or skin eczema. It can be applied to every skin over the age of 30 to restore health.
