PRP is a newer method of rejuvenating the skin of the hands, neck, décolleté and body
The method (Platelet-rich plasma) or abbreviated “PRP” has become a world-famous method for facial rejuvenation since 2007. PRP is platelet-rich plasma. It is a concentrated preparation obtained after centrifugation of blood. This procedure removes red blood cells. In the residual plasma applied with this method, the concentration of platelets is increased. The method is non-invasive. It consists of injecting PRP preparations into a specific area of the skin. The preparation is prepared from the patient’s blood at the time of using the method. This brings numerous benefits (preserving the freshness of the components, excluding the possibility of an allergic reaction, etc.). Blood platelets are rich in numerous growth factors that stimulate the proliferation of fibroblasts and keratinocytes, say dermatologists. The effect of this is increased production of collagen and keratin. Growth factors have a positive effect on the concentration of hyaluronic acid, which increases skin tone. Increased collagen production directly affects the reduction of wrinkles. Research says that the use of inadequate blood centrifugal equipment has the consequence in the form of a reduction in the concentration of platelets in the final product which reduces the therapeutic effect of the method.
