PRP for facial treatment

The  PRP  (platelet rich plasma) has an immediate effect after treatment as it gives a greater hydration and brightness of the skin and a long-term effect thanks to the action of the active ingredients that act in time to compact the skin, making it smoother and with a consequent attenuation of superficial wrinkles.

Platelet gel has already been used in medicine for years, such as in orthopedic surgery, maxillofacial and odontostomatological surgery, ophthalmology and skin ulcer therapy.


Action of the PRP

The action is similar to biostimulation with  hyaluronic acid  .

Biostimulation with PRP platelet gel can be indicated both in young skin from 28-30 years of age as a prevention, and in mature skin as a treatment for skin aging.

This procedure can be performed, depending on the case, on the face, neck, décolleté, back of the hands, abdomen, inner part of the arms and thighs.

Treatment sites with PRP

In particular, PRP can be used to regenerate and, therefore, rejuvenate, not only the skin of the face, neck, décolleté and hands, but also of the abdomen and legs. It is also effective in combating  hair  loss (androgenetic alopecia).

Immediately after the PRP treatment, a slight  filler effect   is immediately obtained in the affected areas, but the most evident results occur within about a month.

Thanks to the stimulation of collagen and elastin cells, the skin appears more turgid, luminous and compact.

PRP is apparently just an abbreviation, "cold" and technical: PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma), plasma enriched with platelets. In reality it is an innovative method of regenerative medicine, based on the properties of the "growth factors" present in our blood. In aesthetic medicine in particular, PRP can be used to regenerate and, therefore rejuvenate and improve the quality of the skin of the face, neck, décolleté, hands, etc.
Once the solution has been obtained with a simple blood sample with prp tubes, which will be suitably treated with centrifugation, it is injected under the skin with micro-injections. A slight "filler effect" is immediately obtained in the affected areas, but the most evident results occur in about a month, thanks to the stimulation on the fibroblastic cells that increase their production of collagen and elastin, the skin appears more turgid, bright and compact. In case of acne, marks and scars are visibly reduced.

This technique appears equally promising to counteract hair loss: The principle of PRP HT (Platelet Rich Plasma Hair Therapy) is always the same: the growth factors present in the platelets are able to stimulate the activity of the stem cells of the hair bulbs still present , but silent or suffering, allowing hair regrowth.
Plasma injection of platelet-rich has been widely used in various clinical settings, including cardiac surgery, sports medicine and wound care. In PRP procedures, a small sample of the patient's blood is processed to release various growth factors from platelets - specialized blood cells involved in clotting. In recent years, PRP injections have become a "trend therapy" in aesthetic medicine, according to Dr. Hazen and colleagues. "Dermatologists and plastic surgeons use the natural healing properties of platelets to improve the appearance and overall health of the skin."
But while PRP procedures are growing in popularity, research supporting their clinical efficacy is limited. In a review and update, Dr. Hazen and colleagues analyzed 22 studies of platelet-rich blood injections for specific types of facial cosmetic procedures.

Fourteen studies evaluated the use of PRP  for face rejuvenation  . All studies reported  positive aesthetic results with PRP injection  ,  alone or in combination with fat grafting. The reported benefits of PRP included  improvements in facial skin volume, texture and tone and a reduction in the appearance of wrinkles.

Six studies using PRP to treat a specific type  of hair loss called androgenetic alopecia  (male or female pattern baldness) have reported  good results in terms of hair regrowth. "Androgenic alopecia is perhaps the most compelling indication for PRP treatment," according to Dr. Hazen and colleagues. Two other studies found positive results with the use of PRP to  treat facial acne scars.


But despite these encouraging results, the review highlights several  limitations   of the use of PRP for aesthetic facial procedures.  The methods of preparing and injecting PRP varied considerably; some reports did not provide information on the preparation technique. The studies also lacked standardized and objective assessments of skin quality before and after PRP treatment. Other issues included the lack of control (comparison) groups and follow-up to determine whether PRP benefits persist over time.

Therefore, despite numerous studies  reporting promising results, the true value of these procedures remains open to question  . “To date, the question of whether the PRP cocktail of growth factors generates a  more youthful appearance has not been definitively resolved  ,   the researchers write.
