It is known that our body has the ability to regenerate and self-renew tissues. Stem cells do this every day throughout our lives.
The PRP stem cell rejuvenation therapy is a treatment of rejuvenation with one’s own blood. This therapy is becoming the leading procedure that uses the treatment ability of platelets and blood growth factors to stimulate the stem cell response. These stem cells help create new collagen and blood vessels, repair and improve damaged skin, and they slow down and reverse the signs of aging.
The PRP stem cell rejuvenation therapy is a new and revolutionary method that uses a minimal amount of one’s own blood to rejuvenate the skin. PRP stands for Platelet Rich Plasma. In the PRP, along with the platelets, there are growth factors and stem cells, which further stimulate the regeneration process. Because one’s own blood is used in this treatment, no synthetic substances are absorbed and there is no possibility of side effects. Key cells and protein are used from your own blood, and special methods and procedures of re-injection promote the regeneration of the skin and subcutaneous tissue. This procedure naturally stimulates the regeneration and recovery of facial tissues, thus reducing wrinkles and improving skin tone on the face. The treatment is completely non-toxic, hypoallergenic and does not require recovery time.
At our Clinic, we use a method that is safe, effective, long-lasting, and most importantly – allows the highest concentration of stem cells, growth factors and platelets, and gives a synergistic effect of two valuable ingredients: hyaluronic acid and platelet-rich plasma.
Hyaluronic acid (HA) is an integral part of our skin. It has been used in aesthetic medicine for more than 25 years as a skin supplement, and millions of treatments have proved its effectiveness and safety. Hyaluronic acid binds water to it, which creates additional volume in the skin, stimulates the migration and proliferation of skin cells, and hydrates and vitalizes the skin from within.
Platelet-rich plasma (A-PRP) extracted from the blood has been used in aesthetic surgery, orthopedics and dentistry for more than 10 years. Its advantage is that it increases the production of collagen and improves the elasticity, color and thickness of the skin. It also stimulates the differentiation and proliferation of stem cells, activates angiogenesis (formation of new blood vessels) and gives the skin a voluminous effect. Plasma contains important molecules such as blood proteins, hormones and nutrients that help repair tissue.
Patient preparation and indications for the procedure
To better understand the needs of each patient and for correct indication of which treatment or a combination of treatments is needed, it is extremely important to consult a doctor.
The PRP stem cell rejuvenation therapy can be used for:
- alleviating glabellar lines, i.e. wrinkles between the eyebrows
- alleviating worry lines
- improving the appearance of the wrinkles around the eyes
- reducing nasolabial folds (laugh lines)
- treating acne scars
- reducing the wrinkles around the mouth
- rejuvenating the skin on the hands and other parts of the body
- stimulating hair growth on the scalp
Preparation for the procedure
5 ml of your blood will be removed by standard procedures before the treatment.
- After that, by means of a special technique – high-speed centrifuge, the plasma will be separated from the other components of your blood.
- The plasma obtained in that way is applied to the skin with small and gentle stings.
The results are visible several days after the treatment, while the full effect is expected in the following months due to the process of creating new collagen and elastin. During this period, the skin is revitalized, it becomes softer, more elastic and visibly rejuvenated. Three sessions are recommended. The second is to be done 4 – 6 weeks after the first, and the third also 4 – 6 weeks after the second. The check-up is after 6 months. The effects of the treatment can last up to two years, depending on the person.
Immediately after the treatment, redness, swelling and minimal pain in the treated area may occur, but they usually disappear within a few hours, and completely within a few days. Most patients return to their normal activities immediately after each session. As early as a few weeks after the treatment, a general improvement in skin moisture, structure and tone is visible. After three to six weeks, the development of new collagen and blood vessels begins, and in the following three to six months, lines and wrinkles disappear, and volume is corrected.
PRP stem cell rejuvenation therapy is a simple and safe treatment. As PRP is filtered from your own blood, there is no possibility of disease transmission, allergies or immunological reactions. The PRP therapy is not applied in the cases of platelet dysfunction, critical thrombocytopenia, hemodynamic instability, autoimmune diseases, sepsis, acute and chronic diseases, pregnancy, chronic liver disease and anticoagulant therapy.
