Injection of Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) use the regenerative and healing properties of blood platelets. These have the ability to locally release growth factors, small molecules acting as real messengers to activate the skin’s regeneration mechanisms.
Blood plasma containing platelets and growth factors that promote the initiation of the skin’s natural regeneration mechanisms.
It is prepared from the patient’s own blood. It is therefore an autologous product, 100% biocompatible and without any risk of rejection or allergy.
Plasma is a serum that contains nutrients, vitamins, hormones, mineral salts and proteins, substances essential for the survival of cells.
Platelets are nucleusless cells with mitochondria, microtubules and alpha granules. A platelet contains between fifty and eighty alpha granules and synthesizes about thirty bioactive proteins which are growth factors. There are a dozen different growth factors that stimulate stem cells in the area where PRP is injecting.
Platelet-rich plasma has been known for more than twenty years in the treatment of osteoarthritis, tendonitis or in the event of rupture of the ligament. Its virtues are now increasingly used in anti-aging medicine.
Indications for PRP injection
