Thanks to aesthetic operations, you can find a solution to the defects that you have experienced throughout your life or that occur after any trauma. While many problems are solved with surgical methods, non-surgical aesthetics has recently become popular. With these techniques, which allow patients to undergo an operation without going under the knife, results are obtained both quickly and without risk. Among these methods, there is also PRP, which we will talk about shortly.
What is PRP?
PRP stands for platelet rich plasma. During this process, a small amount of blood is first taken from the person’s body. Then, the plasma of the blood is separated by a special process. Afterwards, it is given back to the body with the injection. At this point, the plasma obtained is much richer compared to platelet cells. Platelets are responsible for blood clotting. In addition, thanks to the growth factor they contain, they especially ensure that the wounds heal as soon as possible.
PRP treatment is a gift of modern medicine. It is known that blood taken from one’s own body is used to cure some diseases. In addition, it is possible to achieve a much younger and brand-new skin with this method. PRP treatment is decisive to prevent slowing cell renewal due to both environmental and genetic factors. As a result, with PRP, solutions are found for pain treatment, skin rejuvenation and many orthopedic-centered diseases, starting with hair loss. The lack of any risk of PRP treatment draws attention as a serious advantage.
As we said before, PRP is used in the treatment of many diseases. It is used in solving many problems such as tendon injuries and tendonitis such as tennis elbow, especially leg wounds that arise due to diabetes and varicose veins but do not heal in any way, to accelerate the wound healing process after dental implants.
As anyone can imagine, many problems arise in the skin, both due to environmental and aging. Wrinkles and sagging, especially the decrease in the elasticity of the skin, cause serious problems. We must say that the effects of aging on the skin are a nightmare, especially for women. However, thanks to the PRP treatment applied for antiaging purposes, the growth factors contained in platelets come into play. In other words, it is aimed to increase the production of collagen and elastin fibers in order to prevent sagging and wrinkles in the skin.
It is a matter of curiosity at what intervals and at what rate the PRP treatment will be performed. At this point, with the application of three or four sessions at intervals of two to four weeks, a hundred percent natural rejuvenation is achieved without any foreign substance or medication in the body. PRP shows its effect as soon as it is applied simply. With almost the first sessions, the dry and matte appearance of the skin disappears. With long-term PRP sessions, significant improvements such as wrinkle reduction and increase in skin elasticity come to a noticeable level.

How is PRP performed?
Although PRP is in the non-surgical aesthetic category, it is an extremely serious operation. Therefore, it should be administered by a specialist doctor who is experienced and knowledgeable in this subject. As we said before, the PRP process is started by taking blood from the patient. The blood taken is placed in a special tube under sterile conditions. Then, the gel contained in the blood is placed in the tube. The substances in the blood placed in the tube are separated within five to eight minutes. In this way, the plasma part of the blood rich in platelets and growth factors is separated. As a result, the mixture obtained is applied to the area related to the injection method.
We stated that it should be applied at intervals of two to four weeks to get the best result from PRP. In addition, three or four sessions on average will be sufficient. At this point, PRP and mesotherapy combination can also be done according to the needs of the person. After the completion of the PRP cure, the continuation of the process should be ensured with one or two injections a year.

How to skin rejuvenation with PRP?
It is known that many people experience difficulties due to skin problems. We have to express that the skin gets old after a while because it loses some of its features, just like an injury. At this point, parallel to the solution of the problem, methods used for wound healing are also used while rejuvenating the skin. The structure that can repair skin damage in the most effective, fast and natural way is only in the whole of the skin itself. Therefore, the PRP method that activates the magic power in the veins and takes advantage of it works.
With PRP, skin rejuvenation procedures are mostly performed on body parts such as face, neck, hands, legs, décolleté and arms. PRP is extremely useful, especially in order to ensure the rapid reconstruction of the skin immediately after applications such as laser and peeling. Wrinkles, sagging, spots and depressions may occur on the skin exposed to ultraviolet rays after a while. In addition, due to aging, the skin loses its brightness and elasticity after a while. However, thanks to PRP, all problems experienced by the skin are solved. The skin is beautified in every aspect. In addition, the PRP method is effective in healing wounds that take a long time to heal on the skin.
As we mentioned before, PRP is the process of injecting one’s own blood into his own body after some procedures. This method, in which no foreign substance or medication is given to the body, will show its full effect in three to four sessions. Thanks to PRP, a completely natural rejuvenation will be provided. PRP will show its effect from the first sessions, especially when applied to the skin. PRP will gradually eliminate wrinkles, which will remove the dry and matte appearance on the skin. In addition, it will be beneficial in increasing this feature of the skin that has lost its elasticity. PRP not only reduces the signs of aging, which are nightmares for many, but also delays the aging process. In other words, it makes a youth vaccine that you won’t find anywhere else. As a result, it should be preferred by those who want to find a solution to aging without waiting for the signs of aging on their skin.
After PRP, a bright and healthy skin appearance that everyone will admire appears on the skin. However, there is a possibility that this appearance will disappear after a while. Therefore, additional applications such as rejuvenating the skin may be required. After 3-4 sessions of PRP application, it would be a right decision to repeat the procedure every 10-12 months.
Does PRP injections have any side effects?
We should state that PRP is not at a serious level even if it has side effects. Some swelling, pain and bruising may occur in the area where it is applied, especially in the places where the injection is intense. Therefore, the area where PRP is applied should be kept sterile in order to prevent any infection. We should state that there is no serious side effect that may occur in the PRP treatment because the patient’s own cells are treated.
PRP may not be suitable for everyone. It is not suitable for pregnant or breastfeeding women. In addition, it should not be preferred by those with certain blood diseases. Those who use blood thinners and those who have cancer disease should also avoid PRP. No bath should be taken in any way, especially on the first day after PRP treatment. Also, protection from the sun is essential.
