PRP, Platelet-Rich Plasma procedure has been developed for the first time 15 years ago, in consequence of the solution seeking activities carried out by stomatologists (dental surgeons) with intent to prevent titanium implants of elders from getting dislocated due to age-related weakening of their gums. They needed to produce a material, which would be able to strengthen the soft area, where it would be located in, and keep the implant in its place. That strengthening material needed to be a material that would be adopted by the body, and be discharged in the course of time. After centrifugation process, they coagulated the blood and ensured it to turn into a hard gel. Centrifuged blood was used for first time in Japan, Spain and America many years ago.
What is PRP ?
PRP is a medical procedure. It should be carried out by doctors. After the medical examination of the patient, a small amount of blood is taken into small tubes containing a special gel, and then a centrifugation process is carried out. The blood in the tubes got decomposed at the end of this process: In other words, the part consisting of red blood cells of the blood, which contains 200,000 platelets per milliliter is separated; and by this way, a gel is obtained that has a platelet concentration of up to 1.5 million. And it is referred to as “PRP”. Platelets have a function related to blood clotting; but at the same time, they also secrete growth factors that have a feature of healing tissue damages. Therefore, PRP obtained from centrifuged blood, i.e. the platelet-rich part of the blood are applied to the desired area such as the face, neck, hair etc. by means of mesotherapy or in the form of a mask. By this way, the natural growth factors that can reverse the effects of the damage in the tissues or the effects of aging can be delivered to the desired area.
In other words, a filling material is produced from your own blood, and then is applied to the main wrinkles and fine lines in your face.
PRP is produced from your own blood and triggers a biological process that starts a countdown against aging of the skin in the application site of the filling material! So, it does not only fills but also sends support to the area that has a weakened defense system or that has been defeated in the fight against the back-breaking effects of time or environment.
Is PRP a Kind of Stem Cell Therapy ?
PRP is not a kind of stem cell therapy. However, it acts on stem cells in a roundabout way. Each of the growth factors in platelets is a stimulus that sends message to the skin cells for fibroblast production. Fibroblasts are the key structures in terms of collagen and elastin production. Therefore, PRP Regenkit indirectly cooperates with stem cells by increasing the number of platelets that start all this process because fibrin nets developing on the skin after filling application collects also the stem cells existing in the environment, within its structure.
