PRP Skin Rejuvination or Vampire Facial

 

PRP has been clinically validated and established as a treatment concept in a wide variety of medical disciplines for a long time. 

PRP particularly appeals to patients looking for a natural treatment result without the use of foreign substances such as botulinum toxin and hyaluronic acid. PRP is a well-tolerated procedure with short downtime. 

 

In addition to aesthetic medicine, dermatology and plastic surgery, PRP has also been used in orthopaedics and sports medicine for many years, primarily to treat muscle and tendon injuries, but also in the treatment of arthritis. PRP has been also successfully used for a number of years now in the field of wound healing such as diabetic foot ulcers. 

 

Skin Rejuvenation and Wrinkles

The rejuvenation process is initiated by the release of growth factors following the endogenic activation of platelets. PRP stimulates the break down of sun-damaged elements of the extracellular matrix and induces the synthesis of collagen. The number of studies reported a significant improvement in skin elasticity, skin hydration and voluminisation. 

PRP is an ideal combination with microneedling. Numerous studies have demonstrated how the combined PRP+microneedling leads to better results in comparison with microneedling with vitamin C serums. 

Overall, treatment with PRP results in improved skin texture and increased glow for the patient as well as volume improvements to a certain degree. PRP showed great improvement in the around eyes, hands, neck, decollete and for improvement in the appearance of stretch marks. 

PRP is well tolerated and can produce a significant improvement in wrinkles, without injection of a foreign substance, and with virtually no downtime. The procedure is especially beneficial for finer, superficial wrinkles. 

 

Androgenetic Alopecia and Alopecia Areata

PRP injected into the scalp is a treatment option for hair loss. PRP stimulates the proliferation and differentiation of stem cells in hair follicles. 

The growth factor VEGF triggers neoangiogenesis and stimulates the blood supply to the follicles. In addition, the dormant hair follicles are stimulated by growth factors released. Clinical studies have shown a significant increase in the diameter and thickness of the hair. 

 

 

 

 

  Arthrex® and Magellan® Autologous Platelet Separator Systems that we use in our clinic are leading in the industry. 

 

 

The blood of the patient drawn from the patient's vein, then autologous platelet separator used to separate the platelet-rich plasma (PRP) from other blood cells such as leukocytes and erythrocytes. Pure PRP injected into the deeper layers of the skin by using mesotherapy techniques or by the microneedling device such as DermaPen and providing skin rejuvenation. 

 

PRP consists of growth factors, fibroblasts, amino acids (proteins) in very concentrated form.
