What are the platelets?
Platelets are tiny blood components (like the white and red blood cells), that help our body form clots, to stop any bleeding. Their mission is to rush to the site of damage and form a clot to seal it.
After the bleeding stops, they secrete certain substances which, in turn, stimulate the fibroblasts in that area, to produce collagen and help the wound heal permanently.
What is their use in cosmetic medicine?
Their natural attribute to induce intensive collagen production in any area of the body outside the vascular environment (an attribute given to serve another purpose), is an invaluable tool in our hands in our efforts to beat aging by increasing the production of collagen to the skin.
Platelets are also used for the treatment of hair loss, as their growth factors stimulate hair folicles to generate new hairs. In cases of recent hair loss, PRP therapy brings amazing results within a few weeks.
Concerning its compatibility with other treatments, it can be combined with:
- PDO threads
