Platelet-rich plasma treatment: the fountain of youth?
We are getting old; skin wrinkles, lines, spots, sagging occurs by time..
Our hair becomes dull, thin and fall down
Our musculoskeletal system is getting weakened, calcined
Turn back the time with PRP !
What is PRP?
PRP: Platelet Rich Plasma
Platelet cells present in the PRP is rich in proteins called “growth factors”. Growth factor is capable of stimulating cellular growth, proliferation, healing and cellular differentiation.
How is PRP prepared?
Blood is drawn from the patient. Blood is placed into a centrifuge that spins and automatically separates 2 parts ; red blood and yellow plasma. Plasma contains platelets. These platelets rich plasma is used for different treatments.
The science of PRP?
Platelet cells are in our own blood promote healing, accelerates the rate and degree of tissue healing and regeneration, responds to injury, and formation of new cellular growth.
When there is a tissue damage, platelets are collected at this tissue and healing procedure is started.
In PRP; the platelets are concentrated to 3X the normal blood values.
Inside the Platelets are many intracellular structures such as glycogen, lysosomes and alpha granules. These granules within the PRP contain clotting and growth factors that are eventually released during the healing and repair process.These structures functions:
- Promotes blood vessel growth, cell replication, skin formation,
- Promotes growth of matrix between cells, bone metabolism,
- Promotes blood vessel formation,
- Promotes cell growth and differentiation, blood vessel formation, collagen formation,
- Promotes growth of specialized cells and blood vessel formation,
- A regulator of normal physiology in nearly every type of cell in the body
Are there any side effects of PRP?
PRP treatment is safe and natural because PRP involves using your own cells that are not modified or changed, and it will not be rejected by your immune system.
