PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) is a method called platelet (thrombocyte) enriched plasma application. Its popularity has reached its peak in recent years, especially with the introduction of Hollywood stars to the world market with the name of the wampire facelift. It is defined as the reapplication of the platelet-rich plasma part separated from the person’s own blood by a centrifuge device with special sets. Prp application has been used for many years in many branches of medicine, especially in the areas of aesthetic surgery, orthopedics, sports medicine, acne scars, hair loss in major wound treatments.
PRP is taken from the person’s own blood and then centrifuged 10cc. .The plasma part that separates from the red blood ensures that the hair follicles stay longer and alive in the plasma liquid until the hair follicles are transplanted due to the long waiting time of the hair follicles. In 450,000 joint treatments, there are around 800,000 leukocytes and white blood cells. Activated platelets and leukocytes secrete growth factor. In the PRP method, the growth factor triggers the strength and proliferation of the stem cell. With this method, the scalp is renewed and it is obtained from the person’s own blood, and there is no risk of allergic reaction.
