What is platelet-rich plasma (PRP)?

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a product with great advantages and numerous uses. Among its current indications is the treatment of alopecia and skin aging.

One of its main advantages is that it is a product that is obtained from the patient himself, so it does not cause allergy or rejection problems. In addition, it does not require prior tests, only the dermatological assessment of the patient (medical history and physical examination with clinical imaging).

PRP is plasma with many more platelets than is typically found in the blood. The concentration of platelets (and thus the concentration of growth factors) may be 5 to 10 times higher (or richer) than normal.

To develop a PRP preparation, blood must first be drawn from a patient. Platelets separate from other blood cells and their concentration increases during a process called centrifugation. The increased platelet concentration then combines with the remaining blood.

How does PRP work?

Although it is not exactly clear how PRP works, laboratory studies have shown that increasing the concentration of the growth factors in PRP can potentially speed up the healing process.

To speed up healing, the injury site is treated with the PRP preparation. This can be done in one of two ways:

  • PRP can be carefully injected into the injured area. For example, in Achilles tendonitis, a condition commonly seen in runners and tennis players, the heel cord can become inflamed, inflamed, and painful. A mixture of PRP and local anesthesia can be injected directly into this inflamed tissue. Afterward, the pain at the injection site may actually increase for the first week or two, and it may take several weeks before the patient feels any beneficial effect.
  • PRP can also be used to improve healing after surgery for some injuries. For example, an athlete with a completely torn heel cord may require surgery to repair the tendon. Healing of the torn tendon can possibly be enhanced by treating the injured area with PRP during surgery. This is done by preparing the PRP in a special way that allows it to be sewn into torn fabrics.

The most notable benefits of this treatment are these:

– Increases collagen, a protein that enhances cell regeneration and promotes the repair of spots, marks and scars, expression lines, among others. In fact, collagen is well known when it comes to preventing and slowing down the appearance of wrinkles.

– Fight cellulite, one of the concerns of many women. Thanks to the regeneration of tissues and the increase in blood supply provided by the PRP treatment, you can see this condition greatly diminished.

– Eliminates sagging skin. Above all, platelet-rich plasma can help tone your muscles and restore the firmness that you may have lost over the years.

– Promotes the production of elastin, a substance indicated to preserve the elasticity of the skin and reduce the appearance of folds. Thus, it can be ideal for faces that have lost tone.
