How is Platelet-rich plasma injections prepared?
In the beginning, we need to know the components of the blood in the human body. It consists of red blood cells, white blood cells, platelets and a transparent fluid which is the plasma that contains vitamins, minerals, proteins and cytokines.
In order to get this plasma concentrated with platelets, the following steps are held:
1-Collecting blood sample from the patient.
2-Treatment of the blood sample with anticoagulants because the blood is rapidly clotted.
3-Separating the components of the blood by a certain centrifuge device dedicated to separate red and white blood cells from the required plasma.
4-The platelet-rich plasma sample is injected into the face or hair with a very fine sterile needle.
What are the benefits of platelet-rich plasma?
1-Hair loss treatment and giving the hair a special density and length.
2-Treatment of wrinkles and signs of aging.
3-Rejuvenating skin vitality.
4-Treatment of dark circles around the eye.
5-Treatment of delicate facial lines.
6-Uni-toning the texture and colour of the skin.
How does platelet-rich plasma work?
Platelet-rich plasma contains many vitamins, minerals, proteins that stimulate skin cells to regenerate, produce collagen and new cells full of vitality and freshness rather than old ones filled with imperfections.
After the sessions, you notice the change in your face and the disappearance of the defects and if injected into the hair follicles, you develop a magnificent progress in hair growth and its density together with stopping hair fall.
How many sessions are required for the outcome to appear?
The patient needs 3 consecutive sessions of three to four weeks interval between the session and the other, and for hair loss cases, the patient needs 4-6 sessions of a two-week interval between the session and the other, and follow up depends on the condition of the patient and his age where it is recommended in cases of increased and advanced wrinkles, that the patient commits to one session every six months as a follow up.
Platelet-rich plasma injections need a serious commitment to the number of sessions and their timing to get the expected result as cell regeneration and stimulation of growth takes time to show its effect on the face and hair.
The result is clear after the sessions have been completed.
Is there any risk from platelet-rich plasma technique?
So far, no risk has been proven, it is completely safe and no side effects have been observed after injection, just some redness and mild swelling, which normally disappear after a few days.
*It is necessary to ensure that the patient is free of any blood diseases or infections so that the sample does not cause facial and skin problems instead of treatment.
