Platelet-rich plasma (PRP)
In cosmetic surgery, the aim is to obtain proteins from the blood of the patient. These proteins have biological activity, the most important of which are growth factors for stimulation and regeneration of tissue. Its application in aesthetic medicine can restore the vitality of the skin, giving it greater moisture and promoting the formation of blood vessels, resulting in a more youthful and resistant skin.
There are no complications, since is the product is taken from the body of the patient him/herself.
It involves removing blood from the patient and, after centrifuging it, obtaining the plasma component and injecting that component under the skin in tiny, painless injections in the regions we want to rejuvenate. The most appropriate areas are the face, neck, neckline and hands.
Using this technique, we can:
- Increase the consistency of the skin.
- Attenuate, reduce and eliminate wrinkles.
- Increase luminosity.
- Avoid changes in facial expression.
- Biostimulate areas treated.
- It is compatible with other cosmetic treatments.
It is recommended that patients undergo three sessions of treatment over three months (1 each month). One to three maintenance sessions per year then follow, depending on the needs and type of skin of each patient.
Cosmetic treatment with plasma rich in growth factor is presented as one of the latest developments in facial rejuvenation (facial anti-aging). It is a technique that isolates and uses the growth factor present in plasma to stimulate, boost and accelerate tissue regeneration.
Does this treatment have any side effects?
No: when the growth factor of the patient is infiltrated, there is no risk of allergic reactions to any product or a rejection of the material used. As a result, it is highly recommended in patients with autoimmune problems or a history of allergies.
In addition to the face, where else can it be used?
We can also use it on the neck, chest and hands. It also produces excellent results in people experiencing hair loss since it strengthens existing hair, preventing it from falling out and helping regenerate the hair follicle so that new hair can grow.
