PRP therapy is a unique method of skin-rejuvenation that uses a person’s own blood. The application of plasma – the liquid component of blood – stimulates the regenerative abilities of the skin. The growth factors of blood platelets activate rapid stem cell reproduction which rejuvenates the skin and makes it permanently tighter. The tone of the skin also improves with this procedure. The way that skin naturally heals under dried blood clots is an example of platelet-induced regeneration. Scabs, after all, consist mainly of blood platelets.

PRP therapy is used in various medical fields. It is especially popular with athletes, who have it applied into joints or muscles. This method is also used for healing chronic wounds (venous ulcers, diabetic foot and so on), in dentistry and aesthetic surgery and dermatology.

Advantages: results appear gradually, but are permanent. The skin becomes firmer, more youthful and brighter. There is no risk of an allergic reaction or intolerance to the treatment. This method is suitable for everyone. However, with increasing age, the activity of stem cells declines.

Contraindications to PRP include severe acne, or other acute skin infections in the application area.

The application is carried out using microneedles or by applying a moist mask to skin that is primed with some form of fractional treatment (microneedling, micro-plasma or laser). It is even possible to fill in individual wrinkles using a fibrin gel made from plasma.
