The Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is a product with great advantages and numerous utilities. Among its current indications is the treatment of aging skin and hair loss.
One of its main advantages is that it is a product obtained from the patient itself, so it does not cause problems of allergies or rejections. In addition, it does not require prior tests, only the dermatological assessment of the patient (medical history and physical examination with clinical imaging).
What is PRP biostimulation treatment?
PRP is obtained in a similar way to normal analytics. It is an outpatient treatment and does not require admission. A little blood (20 cc) needs to be drawn and then placed in a machine (centrifuge) that separates the blood into several parts. One of them will be the PRP, which we will take, to infiltrate by means of very fine needles the area of the skin or scalp that we want to treat. The only thing added to PRP is a calcium compound to activate platelets and release growth factors, which are the key elements of treatment.
It is a minimally painful technique and with it you get very good results. Platelet-rich plasma contains abundant growth factors, are substances that help generate new blood vessels in the area we infiltrate by reaching more nutrients to it and, that help us increase the proliferation of cells and fibers, including some as interesting and known as collagen and elastin, which give consistency to the skin.
As a complication of the technique, some small bruising may appear in the infiltration area, especially in the area around the eyes. To prevent this, if we treat the area of the face, a cream with vitamin K and sunscreen should be used in the treated area.
What do we get out of all this?
In the case of scalp infiltration for the treatment of alopecia, the appearance of new hair and the increase in thickness of the existing one is achieved. All of this is perceived as an increase in hair density and aging skin.
In the case of skin infiltration (face or cleavage), aging skin for the treatment of photo or chrono-aging it is possible to increase elasticity, decrease sagging, increase luminosity and decrease wrinkles.
What is the pre-treatment assessment?
A medical evaluation is required before undergoing this treatment. The patient’s personal history should always be evaluated, especially those diseases and/or medications that may interfere, such as antiplates or anticoagulants that increase the risk of bruising.
In the case of alopecia, the degree and type of alopecia should be assessed, since not all alopecias are the same and therefore do not require the same treatment. Treatment with PRP has been shown to be useful for the treatment of both male and female androgenetic alopecia. In other types of alopecias there is still no evidence to promote their use. In addition, a baseline medical treatment, with few herbal formulations in form of extracts, should be established to achieve maximum treatment efficacy and proper maintenance of effects over time.
In the case of using it as an anti-aging treatment (Skin ageing) it is necessary to evaluate type of wrinkles, location, patient perspectives, previous treatments and home treatments. It can be combined with other anti-aging techniques (hyaluronic acid fillers or botulinum toxin).
There are no age limits for undergoing this treatment. As an anti-aging treatment, it should not be performed in patients under 30 years of age.
