What is PRP?

What is PRP? PRP stands for Platelet-Rich Plasma, which is a method which is preferred for processes such as rapid cell regeneration and healing of damaged tissue; in short, it involves using a person's own blood that has been processed through various procedures for the treatment. Before giving a more comprehensive answer to the question "What is PRP?" it would be wise to explain the acronym.

Abbreviation of PRP stands for “Platelet Rich Plasma”. Platelets are components of the blood that help in tissue repair and renewal. The PRP procedure involves separating components of the blood, isolating cells that are rich in platelets, and injecting the PRP into the area deemed necessary. The PRP process can regenerate damaged skin cells and make the skin look more youthful and healthier.

What is PRP Therapy?

PRP therapy involves taking the person's own blood, breaking it down into its components with centrifugation and then re-injecting the platelet-rich plasma into the patient. PRP is a short application lasting 30-40 minutes. In the PRP process, 10-20 ml of blood is taken from the person.

It is important not to confuse PRP treatment with stem cell therapy. In the PRP procedure, the blood taken from the person is injected into the necessary area after various processes, while in stem cell therapy, the stem cells taken from the person are injected into the necessary areas. However, while PRP is obtained from blood, stem cells can be taken from different parts of the body.

During the PRP application process, it is important to obtain assistance from a specialist doctor in order to prevent any side effects and complications from occuring due to incomplete or incorrectly performed procedures during the execution of medical diagnosis, treatment and care services.

I had surgery 2 weeks ago by Dr Yucel Sarialtin. I have been to almost every doctor in Istanbul, but this doctor is so spontaneous and gives so much attention to his patient, I immediately felt good. I've had a Tummytuck 360 Lipo and BBL! What a great result I couldn't have imagined it better! Dear people please find the right doctor!!! Because I also had the same operation in 2019, but this doctor mutilated me, and Yucel Sarialtin had to correct this again, which of course makes the operation more difficult. I recommend this doctor 100%! & of course his team also lots of kisses to Buse Bayram Aysegul who helped me through this period

How is PRP Applied?

Although PRP is a short treatment, the process consists of certain steps. These can be expressed as follows:

  • Taking Blood: After deciding on PRP treatment, the first step is to take a blood sample. The taken blood sample is centrifuged with the PRP tube for separation of components. The separation process takes about 15 minutes.
  • Concentrating Platelets: During centrifugation, the blood sample is rotated inside the device for separation of blood components. The platelets to be used for PRP application are separated from the part called plasma and concentrated.
  • Preparation of PRP: Platelets that have been centrifuged and concentrated are mixed in the plasma to achieve its PRP state. It is an active substance that facilitates the rapid healing of injured tissue with high platelet richness.
  • PRP Injection: The prepared active substance is injected into the region to be treated with a PRP syringe.
