Platelet Rich Plasma or plasma concentrate is a concentrate of plasma that is rich in platelets. We derive PRP from the patient’s own whole blood. Platelets are rich in growth factors and cytokines.
We draw a small amount (around 8ml) of blood from the patient and deposit it into a centrifuge, which runs at varying speed to separate the blood into three layers. We use a syringe to draw out the separated PRP and inject it into affected area.
Dermatologists use PRP for rejuvenation of skin, hair loss treatment, and wound healing. Injecting PRP into the dermis causes collagen stimulation and thereby:
At Derma care we combine PRP with microneedling, which is more effective in face, neck, and hand rejuvenation. For acne scarring, we combine PRP with fractional CO2 (Ultrapulse). For androgenic alopecia, we inject PRP into the scalp, which helps in rejuvenating the hair follicle.
No. There are no side effects associated with PRP.
The number of sessions depends on the improvement after each session of PRP. For consistent results, you need four-to-five sessions in a month’s gap.
