PRP Face Care
Genetic factors, environmental factors, aging, smoking and alcohol use may slow down cell renewal and negatively affect metabolism. The regeneration effect occurs as a result of the start of the repair process in the tissues in the PRP injection area.
Platelets, which have a reparative effect, provide regeneration in the area thanks to this feature they carry. After PRP treatment, which initiates deep-to-surface repair in the skin, sagging and wrinkles on the skin of the person are reduced, skin blemishes and scars are lightened. At the same time, a brighter and firmer skin is obtained.
What is PRP Facial Care?
The process of injecting PRP platelet-rich plasma into the body by injection is called PRP. The effect of PRP treatment, which is one of the favourite medical aesthetic procedures of recent years, is due to the fact that its main component is very useful platelets for the human body.
The active ingredient of PRP treatment comes from the person's own body. Therefore, there is no risk associated with the use of donor material or donated blood. Since the treatment is completely natural, it has the feature of supporting the body to heal. Since the substance obtained from the person's own blood is used, it is risk-free and has no side effects.
Who is PRP Face Care Suitable for?
People who want to eliminate aesthetic problems such as wrinkles, cracks, wounds, acne scars and hair loss that occur due to various reasons on their skin can undergo PRP if they do not have any obstacles to the application.
Since it is an effective skin rejuvenation treatment, PRP is generally applied to people between the ages of 30 and 40 with wrinkles, sagging and loosening of skin tissues in various parts of the body in order to provide cell renewal.
PRP is performed by injecting the plasma in which blood cells are concentrated into the damaged tissues in the human body. Thus, new and healthy cells appear in the PRP area. The main reason for this is that the substance taken from the patient and obtained by processing contains a large amount of growth factors. Thus, the healing process in body tissues is accelerated.
How is PRP Facial Care Performed?
PRP is basically the procedure of injecting small amounts of thrombocyte-rich plasma obtained by processing the blood taken from the patient under the skin. Taking blood from the patient and then separating the blood into platelets and plasma is the first step of PRP treatment. The PRP obtained is injected into the area to be treated with fine-tipped needles. In order to obtain high quality plasma, the patient must follow a healthy nutrition program before the treatment.
Thanks to PRP injection, it is possible to deliver much more platelets to the treated area than natural blood circulation can bring. As a result, the amount of collagen in the area is also increased.
How many sessions of PRP treatment should be applied in total may vary according to patient-specific needs. It is generally preferred to apply 3 to 4 sessions at intervals of 7 to 15 days.
Recovery Process After PRP Facial Treatment
Temporary swelling and redness may occur in the PRP injection area depending on the application. Ice compress is an effective method for the removal of swelling. It is important to stop blood thinners for 7 days after PRP injection.
It is recommended not to touch water in the PRP injection area for at least 6 hours. Make-up should not be applied for 24 hours after PRP facial care. In addition, it should not be forgotten that you should not enter the pool and sea in the early period after PRP treatment in order to avoid a possible risk of infection.
Care should be taken not to be in hot environments such as sauna, Turkish bath, and steam room for 2 days following PRP injection. In addition, avoiding smoking and alcohol for the first 3 days after PRP treatment can be counted among the factors that positively affect the healing process.
