Prp (Platelet Rich Plasma)

During PRP, a small amount of blood taken extracted from your body (generally from a vein in your arm) was then centrifuged and separated from its plasma. Next, that platelet-rich blood is subjected to special processes. The resulting liquid contains high amount of growth factor. It then is injected back into the part of your body to be treated via a microinjection.

    No, it doesn’t. However, stem cells are collected from your body by taking during liposuction and then treating them – for esthetic and beauty purposes.

    PRP does contain growth factors that support stem cells.

    During PRP, some of your blood gets drawn from you, centrifuged, treated, and injected back into you again. However, certain details will dictate how many and how good the growth factors in the fluid to be transferred are.

    Vacuumed blood that is drawn for PRP and is not exposed to air needs to be transferred to special PRP tubes. Failure to do so can prevent you from getting the results you desire – given that coagulation gets activated when blood comes in contacts with air.

    Initial centrifuge adjustment is important in PRP. The minute and the cycle time are keys to this procedure’s success, because plasma is separated from the blood afterwards.

    The plasma should get carefully separated without being exposed to any blood, so that the procedure can continue with the next step.

    The finally liquid will be rich in growth factors, and should be injected only into parts of your body that require it immediately thereafter.

    PRP takes about 30 minutes to complete: 15 minutes to draw and treat your blood, and another 10 to 15 minutes to actually conduct the procedure.

    It depends on what your needs are!

    Initial applications should be spread out every 20 to 30 days.

    Routine applications thereafter should be spread out every 3 months.

    Yes, it can, but the risk is minimal because tissue from your own blood is being used. Otherwise, PRP is simple and safe.

    Only when you’re having your blood drawn, pain is slight at best.

    We use ultra thin needles (30 gauge).

    Some patients liken the pain to a mosquito bite, and thus don’t ask for anesthetic cream.

    Those who have a lower pain threshold can have the injection site numbed with anesthetic cream before the procedure, for a more pleasant experience.

    Approx. 10 cc (one tube of blood) is sufficient for facial applications.

    Yes. You can even return back to work, too! 

    However, during first 3 hours after the procedure, you would wear sunscreen and shouldn’t put on heavy make-up.

    Small ecchymosis may occur (all be they are rare), but are temporary. Try to avoid direct sunlight, and don’t forget to wear sunscreen.

    Details are important in PRP. Everything depends upon the quality of the growth factors that have been injected into your skin. Only a specialist should carry out this procedure on you.

    You should have Dr. Ozsular examine you first so that he can plan your treatment out based on your needs. However, don’t expect miraculous results after just one session. PRP requires between 3 and 6 sessions on average in order for it to take effect.
