How is platelet-rich plasma or growth factors prepared?

“It is extracted from your own blood, it is first processed and introduced into a special culture broth that is reinjected in a short time,” says Carmen Fernández Astún, a dermatologist at Armstrong International.

In the opinion of Dr. Ricardo Vicario, Surgeon and Aesthetic Doctor of Clínicas Vicario: “Once the blood sample is obtained, we perform a centrifugation process, in such a way that the red cells are separated from the rest of the plasma. Platelets are obtained from plasma (platelet rich plasma, PRP). And it will be inside these platelets where the FCs are. Red cells are discarded (red blood cells) and we are left with the platelet rich plasma, which we apply calcium chloride for the platelets to release the FC. Growth factors are small fragments of biologically active proteins that activate various functions of the Cells to develop tissue regeneration and repair processes. That is, CFs are biological mediators that regulate essential functions in tissue regeneration / repair. “

What effects does it have under the skin?

“This plasma increases the ability of biosynthesis of fibroblasts and reconstructs the optimal physiological environment of the skin to increase cellular activity, production of new collagen, elastin and acid hyaluronic own, thereby increasing the strength, shine and smoothness of the skin. It has the advantage that virtually no adverse reactions are possible “explains Dr. Carmen Fernández-Antón, dermatologist – Armstrong International Clinic

How long do the results last? And how often should the treatment be repeated?

Treatments vary depending on the medical protocol to follow. As a guideline, Dr. Ricardo Vicario notes that “if we apply it as an autologous facial filler, it is usually enough once.
