Beauty From Our Own Blood
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) application is a medical method and should only be done by doctors. A small amount of blood taken from the patient is taken into small tubes containing a special gel and centrifuged. An enriched gel is obtained by separating the part of the blood that is separated into its components and the platelet cells. This rich structure is called PRP.
Platelets, which allow blood to clot, also secrete growth factors that allow tissue damage to be healed. For this reason, PRP obtained from the centrifuged blood is injected into areas such as the face, neck and hair. Thus, while the healing process of the damage in the tissues increases, natural growth factors that will reverse the effects of aging are also given to the region.
Are PRP and Stem Cell Therapy the same thing?
PRP is not a stem cell therapy. However, it indirectly works on stem cells. Growth factors in platelets are stimuli that transmit the message to skin cells to produce fibroblasts. Fibroblasts are also key structures for producing collagen and elastin. Therefore, Regenkit PRP indirectly works with stem cells by increasing the number of platelets that initiate this whole process, because the fibrin networks formed in the skin after the filling application also collect the stem cells in the environment in its own structure. In addition, in recent years, plastic surgeons have started to apply fat injection by mixing the PRP obtained with the blood taken from the patient during the fat injection operations into the fat taken from the patient. This increases the possibility of holding the given oil. Again, applying PRP to the operation area and incision line in surgeries such as tummy tuck, face lift, breast lift and reduction will result in bleeding, poor wound healing, etc. reduces problems.
Does PRP Have Disadvantages or Risks?
There are no risks and side effects in the correct application of PRP.

How and for how long should PRP be done?
PRP applied together with mesotherapy is done in 3-4 sessions with 15-day intervals. After 6-8 months, another cure is sufficient. There is another protocol in which filling and mesotherapy are applied together, in which 3 sessions of PRP are applied with 21-28 day intervals. Six months later, the doctor checks his patient. If the patient is in the menopause period or if he smokes, the doctor may need to do 1 more course. If the patient takes good care of himself, takes care of his health, and protects his skin from UV rays, it is waited for 1 or even 2 years depending on the situation for the second cure.
