What is PRP?

Platelet rich plasma (PRP=platelet rich plasma); It is the name of the application in which the blood taken from the person is centrifuged by placing it in a special tube, and the obtained platelet-rich plasma fluid is returned to the same person by injection with very small needle tips. Blood cells called platelets contain a large amount of “growth factors” in their structure. If there is any damage to our tissues, these blood cells come to the damaged tissue and initiate the repair process. In PRP treatment, on the other hand, under normal conditions, thrombocyte accumulates in much higher amounts than during tissue repair, and thus the repair process starts faster and stronger. With the PRP method, skin rejuvenation, wound healing, hair loss and acne scar treatments are also performed. In applications made for hair, it extends the growth and development phase of the hair follicle and reduces scalp pain. For treatment, approximately 10 cc of blood is taken from the patient and centrifuged. Since the person’s own blood product is used, no allergic reaction is observed. Although the application varies according to the indication and the needs of the individual, a total of 3-4 sessions can be applied weekly or monthly.
