PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma)

Plasmatherapy (Platelet Rich Plasma / PRP), also known as „vampire facelifting",is a revolutionary new system for renewing the damaged and prematurely aged skin through the application of one's own plasma.

The therapy is based on the ability of the natural healing forces of human organism to slow down the process of growing old of the skin.

After the respective processing of the blood plasma it is injected in the specifically determined sites in the derma, where there is need of nutrition, hydration, rejuvenating and stimulating the collagen.

The plasma rich in platelets contains „growth factors" - proteins, which help the quick restoration of the wounded tissue or the damaged and withered skin.

 

This procedure is also used in complex treatment of dermatological diseases such as acne, rosacea, seborrheic dermatitis, atomic dermatitis, androgenetic alopecia.

Indications:

    •    age-related changes of skin

    •    the reduced skin turgor, dry skin

    •    the rehabilitation period after aggressive cosmetic

          (e.g., laser resurfacing) or surgical  procedures

    •    acne, post-acne and other dermatological diseases

    •    treatment of age spots

    •    dull, thin hair

    •    diffuse alopecia (hair loss) and androgenetic  alopecia

At the beginning of the procedure the doctor takes fence blood sample using a special 

vacuum system in the amount of 9 ml per tube, which contains an anticoagulant and

separation gel (depending on the indications, it may take from 1 to 3-4 tubes)

Then  a special centrifuge for Plasmatherapy separates blood into two groups: plasma and formed elements.

The doctor injects plasma into the middle or deep layers of the derma, where the platelets release their growth factors. And stimulate regeneration and rejuvenation processes.
