Injection of platelet extracts (PRP)

This technique improves the vitality of tissues and repairs them. Its special feature is that it uses an autologous product (from the patient himself).

In the blood we have three types of cells: red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets. Here only the brochures interest us. Autologous concentrated platelet extracts (from the patient himself) are used here as a repair and revitalization product.

Growth factors released by platelets work by stimulating the growth of fibroblasts and the production of collagen. There are four main indications

The growth factors will stimulate microcirculation and the production of collagen. The skin becomes softer, more toned. The complexion is rosier, more alive. Brief boost, good looks.

This is certainly a flagship indication. The injected product has the color of plasma and its consistency is very fluid. The result is regularly spectacular and natural

Once under the skin, the P.R.P. (platelet-rich plasma), takes on a gelatinous appearance. A framework of fibrin is created which will be colonized by the surrounding cells. Thus, it will recreate living tissue where it is injected. Unlike hyaluronic acid gels (which trigger healing on foreign bodies), the tissue will remain flexible over time.

Here, it is the follicles of the hair which are quiescent under the skin which will be awakened. Hair regrowth and sometimes re-coloring of white hair would be possible.

All that is needed is a blood sample (as in the laboratory), followed by a 5-minute centrifugation. The extracts are ready to be injected. The session lasts 30 to 45 minutes.

The usual protocol consists of two sessions three months apart and one annual maintenance session. For the hair, the protocol is a little different with 4 sessions in 15 days then maintenance.

Platelets have known revitalizing properties and have been used for many years in reconstructive surgery and dermatology. These are living cells that will recreate living tissue where they are injected. The skin becomes softer, more toned. The complexion is rosier and benefits from a boost.

Some redness is still possible in the hours that follow. As the platelet extracts come from the patient himself, the product is 100% biocompatible: limited risk of intolerance! However, warn the doctor in the event of significant allergic conditions.
