Rejuvenation with Platelet Rich Plasma
Platelet rich plasma (PRP) is a biological, autologous and non-toxic product obtained through centrifugation of venous blood in which its different components are separated.
The fraction containing PRP as the name suggests has a high concentration of platelets, which contain high amounts of epidermal growth factor (EGF) having the ability to naturally stimulate the direct production of collagen, elastin and other customary skin constituents. The application of PRP, promotes skin rejuvenation through regeneration and reorganization of tissues due to its high concentration of growth factors.
This is a safe practice supported by scientific medicine and tested successfully in other fields such as sports medicine, neurosurgery, orthopedics and surgical procedures for wound healing.

PRGF or PRP has a high concentration of growth intraplatelet factors (bio-stimulating substances), is re-injected into the patient through mesotherapy (intradermal injections) or injections (injections into subcutaneous tissue) to induce the production of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid. First, the extraction of peripheral blood from the patient is performed.
Subsequently the blood in order to obtain fraction PRP is centrifuged, which prior to use must be activated. Once PRP obtained, gentle cleansing area of the patient to be treated it is performed, a topical anesthetic is placed to minimize discomfort and is injected in small amounts of PRP in the skin.
