PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma)
for joint damage, hair thickening and rejuvenation.
PRP therapy is an injectable procedure in which a patient's platelet-rich plasma is injected into a part of the body that requires rapid healing, i.e. it is intended to speed up regeneration and stimulate the growth of the body's own cells. The idea of the method is to get the patient's own body to produce the amount of cells needed for tissue repair.
- Blood collection
- The production of enriched plasma by centrifugation.
- Injection of the plasma into the injured area (depending on the purpose of the treatment, the enriched plasma can be injected into the joint, under the skin or intradermally).
Platelets are essentially fragments of a megakaryocyte (the precursor cell of all form elements). On their surface, platelets contain a large number of so-called growth factors - proteins that stimulate cell synthesis. This is their success in haemostasis (stopping bleeding). When the concentrated platelets re-enter the body, they begin to actively stimulate the growth of new cells. Fibroblasts and muscle fibres are sensitive to growth factors. Increasing their quantity increases the firmness and elasticity of the skin, enables the repair of damaged parts of the muscles, fasciae, joint structures, strengthening the hair bulb in the bed.
As the growth factor helps to strengthen and grow blood vessels, PRP therapy improves blood circulation in the tissues, resulting in better metabolism, including gases, which helps to restore a deep, healthy complexion and helps with acne and furunculosis.
The patient's own blood is taken and a plasma supernatant rich in platelets and growth factors is produced by means of a centrifuge. Cell growth and angiogenesis are stimulated and self-healing processes are activated. Numerous recent studies (Cerza et al 2012, Patela et al 2013, Sanchez et al 2012) show a significantly better alternative compared to cortisone or hyaluronic acid. Depending on the indication, 3 to 5 injections are recommended. The system we use is a closed system and is therefore sterile, safe and excludes contamination.
