PRP or Platelet Rich Plasma technique was first developed 15 years ago when stomatologists sought a solution to prevent the fall of titanium implants placed in the elderly in a short time due to weakened gums. Such material had to be developed that when this material was placed on the gum, the soft area should be strengthened and be able to hold the implant. This strengthening substance also had to be accepted by the body and not be eliminated from the body over time. After centrifuging the blood, they coagulated it and allowed it to turn into a hard gel. The first use of centrifuged blood began many years ago in Japan, and later in Spain and America.
PRP is a medical procedure. It should only be performed by physicians. After examining the patient, the physician takes a small amount of blood into small tubes containing a special gel and performs the centrifugation procedure. At the end of this procedure, the blood in the tubes is separated into its components: that is, the part of this blood, which contains about 200,000 platelets in each milliliter, is separated from the red cells; thus a gel with a platelet density of up to 1.5 million per milliliter is obtained. This is called PRP. Platelets have functions related to blood coagulation; however, they also secrete growth factors that are capable of healing tissue damage. Therefore, PRP obtained from the centrifuged blood, that is, the part with abundant platelets is applied to the face, neck, hair and etc. Accordingly, natural growth factors that will reverse the effects of tissue damage or aging are provided to the desired area. Actually, there are two different blood products obtained by the proposed technique; one is PRP and the other is thrombin serum. These are obtained with two different tubes. The PRP tube contains a substance that prevents blood from clotting. On the contrary, there is thrombin in the other tube, which enables the blood to clot, allowing these platelets to be used as fillers. When these two are used together, the regenerative effect on the skin emerges more strongly. In other words, the filler is made from your own blood and applied to the basic folds and fine lines of the face.
Fillers containing hyaluronic acid last for 6-8 months. Filled PRP is produced from your own blood, and it triggers a biological process that starts a countdown against skin aging in the filled area! In other words, it not only fills but also supports the area that has weakened its defenses and succumbed to fighting against the wearing effects of time or the environment.
