The PRP method consists in the harvesting and injection of plasma which is separated from the patient’s own blood by centrifugation. PRP stands for ‘Platelet Rich Plasma’.
The mode of action of this plasma is versatile. It contains growth factors, which have different effects. On the one hand, connective tissue is stimulated, thus triggering the production of elastin and collagen On the other hand, the production of hyaluronic acid is increased, enabling increased binding of water and consequently storage of moisture. Existing skin and stem cells are stimulated, so that the process of natural cell generation is supported. Thus skin cells are revitalised and renewed. Furthermore, blood circulation is increased.
By injection of the plasma, skin and stem cells are activated, collagen and elastin production is increased and skin blood flow improved.
Growth factors are released, skin cells are revitalised and renewed, wrinkles are reduced and overall, the skin looks firmer.
