Prp ( Platelet-rich Plasma )
At some point, we all want a time machine to go back in time and bring us back our youth, firm and wrinkle free skin, thicker and shinier hair, stronger joints, etc . Well, the mechanism of natural restoration of health, youth and beauty is hidden in our own body and can be triggered by platelets containing proteins capable of stimulating cell regeneration – hence, healing us by using our own blood!
In ancient times, the healers believed that blood had magical properties and they were right. Blood is made up of an intercellular substance – plasma – and elements such as erythrocytes, leukocytes and platelets. Each of these cells has its own task: erythrocytes provide tissue respiration, leukocytes protect the body against infections, platelets are part of the blood clotting processes.
Therefore, platelets play an important role in the healing and regeneration of traumatized tissues, producing growth factors that regulate and stimulate the growth and survival of tissues. Growth factors are required for cell genesis and normal cell cycle performance. The symbiosis of growth factors is responsible for the reconstruction of blood vessels in the traumatized area, regeneration of new tissues (epithelial, cartilaginous, connective, muscular, nervous) and for stopping the bleeding.
Therefore, the solution for the regeneration and recovery of the human body is in the platelets. Autologous platelet (APT) injections naturally restore health, youth, and beauty.
The stages of Prp Method:
The essence of the Prp method is injecting into the human body plasma with high levels of platelets, which allows the cellular regeneration process to be triggered. The procedure should not last longer than 30 minutes and consists of the following steps:
1) Blood collection: blood is collected from the vein, in a special vacuum tube. The patient is prepped, then he is punctured with a flexible needle and between 10 and 60 ml of blood (depending on the protocol) are collected. The loss of such a small amount of blood does not have a negative influence on the patient’s health and does not stop the proper functioning of the body.
2) Centrifugation: autologous platelet-rich plasma is separated from the blood by centrifugation. To obtain this plasma with high therapeutic properties, one must process it. Normally, the amount of platelets in the human blood varies between 150,000/microliter and 350,000/microliter, but for the stimulating regeneration effect, their number must be increased to 1,000,000/microliter. Plasma with such a high platelet concentration can be obtained by centrifuging the blood in special biotechnological tubes. The increased efficiency and safety of the procedure can only be achieved by using certified equipment.
3) Injection: plasma is injected into the treatment area. The certified tubes allow the qualitative separation of blood in 3 fractions: red blood cells, the plasma suspension and the platelet-rich fraction (autologous plasma, full of growth factors). During this processing, the separated autologous plasma is then injected into the treatment areas. Autologous plasma is a highly effective biological regeneration stimulant that contains a high concentration of growth factors in their natural proportion. Platelet-rich plasma is obtained from the patient’s own blood, thus ensuring the complete biocompatibility between the injected substance and the body, excluding any immunological and allergic reactions as well as the possibility of rejection.

– allergic reactions to anticoagulants
– malignant neoformations
– acute infectious diseases.
Indications to Prp procedures:
Prp method is such a non-invasive technology, used in aesthetic medicine as an extremely effective anti-aging method, that makes the body work as the body of a young person. Prp procedure also helps to solve some of the patient’s aesthetic problems: improving skin color and texture, increasing skin elasticity and density, reducing wrinkles.
- age related changes in the skin (chrono-aging)
- aging skin, due to exposure to UVA and UVB radiation (photo-aging)
- excessive pigmentation (hyperpigmentation)
- acneic, post-acneic and scarring injuries
- sensitive, dull skin
- skin diseases (atopic and seborrheic dermatitis, psoriasis, eczema)
