Beauty From Our Own Blood
Platelet Rich Plasma, or PRP, is a medical procedure and should be performed only by doctors. A small amount of blood taken from the patient is taken in small tubes with a special gel and centrifuged. The decomposed blood is separated from the platelet cells and an enriched gel is extracted. This rich structure is called PRP.
Platelets, which provide blood clotting, also release growth factors that allow damaged tissues to heal. For this reason, PRP obtained by centrifuged blood is injected into areas such as face, neck and hair. Thus, while damage to the tissues increases as the healing process increases, the natural growth factors that reverse the effects of aging are also given to the area.
Are PRP and Stem Cell Therapy the same thing?
PRP is not a stem cell therapy. But it works on stem cells indirectly. Growth factors in platelets stimulate skin cells to transmit fibroblast-producing messages. Fibroblasts are also key-structures on producing collagen and elastin. Therefore, Regenkit PRP indirectly works with stem cells by multiplying the number of platelets that initiate all this process, because fibrin nets that form after the filling application collect the stem cells in the environment under its structure. In recent years, plastic surgeons have begun to apply fat injection by mixing the PRP obtained from the blood taken from patient in the fat taken from the patient during the fat injection operations. This increases the likelihood of permanence of injected fat. In addition, operations such as abdominoplasty, facial lifting , mastopexy (breast lifting) and breast downsizing, PRP application to operation area incision line reduces the problems such as bleeding, bad wound healing etc.
