PRP injections: all about the technique and procedures
Platelet-rich Plasma (PRP) is an autologous blood-derived preparation used by aesthetic specialists. Due to its higher than usual concentration of platelet cells than blood itself, PRP improves all skin aspects, and platelet cells play a major part in lesion repair (apart from blood clotting).
Widely used by aesthetic experts, this concentrate of platelet-rich plasma proteins is also used to regenerate lesions or for post-surgery patients. For instance, PRP speads up healing in patients suffering from Achilles tendinitis (a common lesion in runners).
PRP treatment is injected following a 4-phases process:
- Blood is extracted by a specialist. Blood amount needed depends on the area to be treated.
- Blood is centrifuged to remove red blood cells.
- Plasma is added to the remaining preparation to enhance its effectiveness.
- The final preparation is injected on the area.
