PRP or Platelet-rich plasma is blood plasma that has been enriched with platelets.
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP), also known as autologous conditioned plasma, is a concentrate of platelet-rich plasma protein derived from whole blood, centrifuged to remove red blood cells.
PRP is a regenerative therapy, which allows the sampling of platelets rich in growth factors from the patient. The platelets are then used in several therapeutic fields and aesthetic treatments, from skin rejuvenation to hair regrowth. Positive outcomes are observed in 80% of cases.
HOW IS THE PRP TREATMENT PERFORMED?
PRP is a treatment, which takes about 30-45 minutes. No surgical tools are needed in this procedure but if you have bleeding problems or liver function is always advisable to make a preliminary assessment in a doctor’s clinic especially on platelet function (examination blood count).
A blood sampling is performed in order to collect some blood containing red cells, white cells, and platelets. After being collected in our vacuum sterile tubes is then put into a centrifuge and spinned at 4,000RPM for 5 mins so that its watery part (plasma) can be isolated. As a result, the plasma gets enriched with a number of platelets five to ten times bigger than the normal blood concentrations.
The platelets are subsequently isolated from the rest of the red and white blood cells. Once the plasma has been isolated, it gets suctioned through the test tubes into a syringe and is ready to be injected.
Certain physicians prefer to add small amounts of activators such as Calcium Chloride /Batroxabin or add Biotin to the plasma, thus activating the plasma and allowing the release of growth factors within the platelets.
The purpose of this procedure is to allow the release of growth factors within the platelets: The activator breaks the walls of the platelets and growth factors are thus released from the broken platelets and attracted within the plasma.
PRP is plasma that has been enriched with platelets that are then suctioned with a syringe and injected with a small needle into the area to be treated.
The platelet concentrate is then injected with a very thin needle in the scalp followed by a gentle massage to encourage distribution.
The patient can immediately return to any activities and social work.
