Platelet-rich plasma treatment
Presentation of the platelet-rich plasma treatment.
This treatment consists of the injection of PRP
(platelet-rich plasma) using different techniques (mesotherapy or filling). PRP
is developed from the patient's own blood, via a simple blood test. PRP contains growth factors which, once reinjected, will trigger a process of cellular rejuvenation in the various treated areas.
Indications for platelet-rich plasma injections
is intended for patients who are waiting for minimally invasive, safe, natural, effective and long-lasting aesthetic treatments. PRP
can be used to even out skin tone, smooth out wrinkles, rejuvenate the skin and lighten dark circles. Finally, PRP
can be used as mesotherapy on the scalp to promote hair growth.

In recent years, much has been written about a preparation called platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and its effectiveness in treating osteoarticular injuries. Many famous athletes - Tiger Woods, tennis star Rafael Nadal and many others - have undergone PRP infiltration treatments for a variety of problems, including knee and chronic tendon injuries. These conditions are usually treated with medication, physiotherapy or even surgery. Some athletes have recognised the ability of PRP to return to competition more quickly.
Although the PRP has been widely publicised, there are still many questions surrounding it:
- What is platelet-rich plasma (PRP)?
PRP is an acronym for “platelet-rich plasma”, which defines a gel-like substance (platelet gel) obtained by centrifugation of peripheral blood.
PRP is obtained by taking 40cc (one tube) of blood from the subject to be treated; after collection, the blood is subjected to centrifugation and cell separation processes resulting in the new, much more platelet-rich substance.
Platelets are one of the main cellular constituents of blood and are produced by the bone marrow; their importance is mainly due to the fact that, by adhering to each other, they promote the blood clotting processes in the presence of haemorrhage, trauma or injury. Platelet growth factors are responsible for these repair processes. The clots that form under normal conditions are composed of 95% erythrocytes (red blood cells), 4% platelets and 1% leukocytes (white blood cells); the aim of PRP production is to obtain a gel in which the concentration of platelets is very high, 95%. PRP is therefore a substance very rich in platelet growth factors.
The therapeutic objective in the different areas of clinical application is to stimulate tissue regeneration.
