What is plasmotherapy?
PRP stands for Platelet-rich Plasma and it is a modern method, which boosts cell regeneration, recovery, anti-aging, and bio-stimulation. It is important to note that plasmotherapy uses the body's natural abilities to recover.
The human blood consists of liquid and cells. The blood plasma (liquid) itself consists of water, proteins, minerals, enzymes, vitamins, etc. The blood cells are erythrocytes, leucocytes, and thrombocytes (Platelets).
During plasmotherapy, a physician takes around 8ml of the patient's blood and puts it in an aseptic test tube. The blood is then put in a special spinner, which spins it at high speeds. The result is concentrated plasma rich in growth factors, which is then applied intradermally on the patient's skin.
The thrombocytes growth factors are natural controllers of important vital functions such as DNA synthesis, chemotaxis, cell differentiation and matrix synthesis. When applied to certain tissues these factors enhance their regeneration and slow down the aging process. Furthermore, the growth factors that the thrombocytes release feed the stem cells and the hair follicles by improving the local blood circulation. This method is absolutely harmless and hypoallergenic as it uses patient's own plasma.
Among the effects of plasmotherapy are:
better skin tonus and overall appearance, including the disappearing of tiny wrinkles
visibly smaller periorbital dark circles
hair loss treatment
improves stretch marks, scars, and acne treatment
Side effects and treatment duration:
Patients should not undergo plasmotherapy of they suffer from blood clotting disorders or have present infections. Plasmotherapy is not recommended to pregnant and lactating women, and people taking anticoagulant medicaments.
This method requires one procedure per month, 3-4 in a row.
