PRP - Platet Rich Plasma Therapy
It is an injectable treatment in which blood is drawn from the patient himself, after centrifugation his plasma, highly enriched in growth factors, is taken and injected into his skin. Autologous PRP mesotherapy is usually performed on the face or body and the injections target the middle layer of the skin, the dermis, which is why it is called mesotherapy.
How it works:
PRP treatment naturally smoothes fine lines on the face. The result is smooth skin and a youthful appearance.
Growth factors (plasma) are responsible for the repair and healing of skin and tissues when they are injured. By injecting them, the natural mechanisms of tissue regeneration (fibroblasts) are activated, while at the same time the growth of new collagen is induced.
Collagen gives elasticity and volume to the skin. Autologous plasma is administered with a needle. With this process, the body’s natural healing processes are activated.
People with good skin quality, moderate sagging and slight signs of skin aging.
The parts of the body where autologous PRP mesotherapy is most commonly applied are:
- The neckline
- The hands
- The neck
- The cheeks
- The jaw.
- The area around the mouth.
- On the body for the treatment of white stretch marks, treatment of postoperative and hypertrophic scars.
- On the scalp for hair loss treatment, hair growth enhancement treatment.
- Pregnancy or breastfeeding
- Existence of active skin diseases
- Take anticoagulants
- Hematological disorders.
With autologous PRP mesotherapy, the person’s own blood is used, so there is no risk of an allergic or immune reaction as with other injectable treatments.
- Pulls that have formed on the skin will subside in about 6 hours.
- Avoid touching the treatment area and applying products that may irritate it
- Sun protection at the treatment site when exposed to the sun for at least 15 days (SPF 50).
Steps for treatment:
We photograph the patient at the predetermined points depending on the treatment area.
We prepare the necessary items for blood collection on the tray (cuff, Hansaplast, negative pressure bottle with or without hyaluronic acid, butterfly for blood collection, dry gauze, Octenisept spray, nephroid for disposal of sharps).
We disinfect the place where the blood collection will take place with Octenisept spray. Usually brachial vein or dorsal surface of forearm.
Pass the cuff over the blood sampling point. We insert the butterfly and when there is a return of blood to the special chamber of the butterfly, we clip the negative pressure vial to the metal end.
When the flow of blood in the negative pressure vial becomes trickle then four important sequential movements take place:
dissolving the cuff – removing the butterfly from the blood collection point – dabbing with dry gauze – removing the metal part from the vial.
Shake the vial ten times and then place it in the centrifuge. CAUTION the counterweight of the centrifuge is directly opposite the blood vial for balance and proper centrifugation of the blood.
Close and secure the centrifuge and press the button Time 1:5 min.
We wear clean gloves and if deemed necessary the area is planned with a white pencil.
Clean the treatment area (face) with a special emulsion and gauze.
We apply an anesthetic cream to the points where the infusion will take place, according to the doctor’s order. In the case of anesthetic cream, a waiting time of about 30 minutes is required for it to take effect.
We prepare the treatment tray which should contain:
- dry gauze (optional)
- at least four saline-soaked gauzes
- 5ml syringe
- 19G needle
- 4 luer lock syringes 1ml
- 8 blue mesotherapy needles 31G
- 1 3-way
After the centrifuge is finished, a bell rings. We open the centrifuge and take the vial.
If the vial is enriched with collagen, carefully place it on the bench and a continuous gentle back and forth movement is made in order to homogenize the plasma with the hyaluronic acid.
Aspirate the solution into a 5ml syringe with a needle of approximately 19G.
Attach the 5ml syringe to one end of the 3-way and the empty 1ml syringe to the other end. We transfer the contents from the filled syringe to the empty one carefully, not too much pressure so as not to spill the contents.
This process is repeated until all the syringes are filled. We clip the blue 31G mesotherapy needles into the syringes.
We discard the used materials to keep the workbench clean.
We start the treatment with successive bites forming pulp.
The needle in the syringes is changed frequently for better injection of the material. Caution the sharps are discarded directly into the halibox!!!
Clean the treatment area from biological fluids (blood) with wet gauze soaked in saline. Be careful not to rub but to dab, as it irritates the area less.
After all the material has been injected into the treatment area, we clean the face with wet gauze. Except when the plasma is smeared on the face.
After the end of the treatment the area is intensely red and usually with pulp.
We apply sunscreen if necessary and give instructions for the following days.
