Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)
A Safe and Natural Technique
We use an innovative solution and natural process for visible improvement of texture, luminescence of your skin, reduction of wrinkles and fine lines, and fading of dark circles. It can also be used for hair loss (alopecia, alopecia areata), acne scars and stretch marks and is an ideal supplement to laser and chemical peel treatments.
Platelet Rich Plasma injections rely on a technique both simple and safe, using the regenerative and healing properties of platelets. They have the ability to locally release growth factors, small molecules that act as messengers to initiate the process of skin regeneration.
From a small sample of blood PRP is ready to be injected after only 10 minutes of processing. Prepared from your own blood, it is a natural product; the risk of rejection or allergic reactions is minimized.
Platelets are key factors in hard and soft tissue repair mechanisms. They provide the essential growth factors FGF, PDGF, TGF-ß, EGF, VEGF, IGF that are involved in stem cell migration, differentiation and proliferation. The stimulation of fibroblasts and endothelial cells induces new extracellular matrix deposition and neo-vascularization, thus repairing and regenerating cells.
Plasma is essential for cell survival as it contains nutrients, vitamins, hormones, electrolytes and proteins. Proteins are key molecules for the coagulation process and the formation of the fibrin polymer that will serve as a scaffold for cell migration, differentiation and proliferation.
These growth factors aid healing by:
- attracting undifferentiated stem cells into the newly formed matrix and triggering cell division
- suppressing cytokine release and limiting inflammation
- attracting macrophages to improve tissue healing and regeneration
- promoting new capillary growth (new blood vessel formation), and accelerating epithelialisation
