Plasma treatment

Does your skin have dryness, sagging, wrinkles or fine lines? Do you suffer from scars or hair loss, for example? Do you want to comprehensively improve the quality of your skin, activate skin growth factors and cell regeneration in the most natural way possible? In PRP, i.e. the so-called vampire treatment, the customer's own plasma is used, which provides versatile benefits in skin care and, among other things, as an aid to hair growth.

PRP treatment is a natural and effective form of treatment based on platelet-rich plasma. PRP (platelet-rich plasma) is an autologous biological blood product that contains plenty of growth factors and other bioactive molecules that play an important role in stimulating cell proliferation, tissue growth, collagen synthesis and neovascularization. Interest in PRP treatments has already started in the 1970s, and in the 1980s clinical studies reported the use of the treatment to heal wounds and stimulate bone formation.

 

Plasma therapy offers a new therapeutic approach to address tissue damage or wound healing caused by prolonged inflammation and/or altered signaling pathways by altering the balance of growth factors and other molecules at tissue damage sites, which stimulates tissue rebuilding. The approach is minimally invasive. As an autologous product, PRP is inherently safe, without any possible immunological reaction or infectious disease risks.

What is the treatment?

As you age, the surface blood circulation of the skin decreases, the production of collagen and elastin decreases and the functions of the skin slow down. PRP (platelet rich plasma) is a natural and effective form of treatment based on the ability of platelet-rich plasma to bring plenty of growth factors and other bioactive molecules to the skin. These active substances play an important role in stimulating cell proliferation, tissue growth, collagen synthesis, elastin, hyaluronic acid and neovascularization. As a result of the treatment, the growth factors in the customer's own blood plasma cause the skin cells to regenerate and invigorate the microcirculation of the skin. In addition to the aesthetic benefits, clinical studies have also shown its benefits, e.g. in promoting the healing of tissue damage such as wounds. PRP therapy can also be used along with other forms of treatment.

 

During the treatment, a blood sample is taken from the customer and the PRP solution is prepared by separating the platelets and plasma from the other components of the blood. The finished plasma is introduced into the skin in a similar way to mesotherapy, using small injections. The treatment can be performed manually with the needle-syringe technique, mesogun mesotherapy device or as part of microneedling treatment.

 

PRP is made by separating platelets and plasma from other blood components. The manufacturing method affects the final composition of the product, the concentration of blood platelets. The healing and regenerative effects of PRP are related to growth factors and other bioactive molecules that are stored in blood platelets or in plasma. The concentration of growth factors in PRP depends on the preparation method and the quality of the PRP (platelet quality, presence of leukocytes). In addition, the concentration of growth factors and cytokines in PRP may vary between individuals.

 

The most important platelet-releasing growth factors and their biological activities:

PDGF (Platelet Derived Growth Factor)

Cell growth, neovascularization and blood vessel repair, collagen production

VEGF (Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor)

Promotion of angiogenesis, promotion of wound healing

EGF (Epidermal Growth Factor)

Promotes epithelial cell growth, angiogenesis, promotes wound healing

FGF (Fibroblast Growth Factor)

A growth factor present in the epithelialization phase of wound healing. Keratinocytes cover the wound, forming an epithelium.

IGF (Insulin like Growth Factor)

Regulation of cell growth

TGF-B (Transforming Growth Factor Beta)

Growth and neogenesis of epithelial cells and vascular endothelial cells, promotion of wound healing

CTCF (Connective Tissue Growth Factor)

Promotes angiogenesis, cartilage regeneration and platelet adhesion

KGF (Keratinocyte Growth Factor)

Generation and growth of new keratinocytes

What kind of results can be achieved with the treatment?

As a result of the treatment, the overall quality of the skin improves, the moisture balance of the skin improves, lines, wrinkles and scars are evened out, the skin becomes more elastic and flexible. The treatment has sebum-balancing and antimicrobial properties. After the skin's functions are activated, the look becomes more refreshed and youthful. The treatment is also excellent for strengthening and revitalizing the skin around the eyes.

 

In the prevention and treatment of hair loss, PRP activates the hair follicle and improves blood circulation in the scalp - resulting in stronger, denser and more active hair growth. PRP is also used in the treatment of Alopecia.

 

Plasma therapy can be used as a post-treatment to other more aggressive treatments such as laser or deep chemical peels to promote recovery and results. Especially after a hair transplant, a plasma treatment series is recommended to guarantee the results of the operative treatment.

 

As a consequence of the treatment, the growth factors in the patient's own blood plasma cause the skin cells to regenerate and invigorate the microcirculation of the skin. The effects of the treatment can be seen in about three weeks, and after 2-3 enhancement sessions carried out every month, the results last up to two years!

What is included in the treatment?

The treatment includes a consultation, skin cleansing, blood sampling, preparation of PRP, injection of PRP into the skin, protective end products and a relaxing and restorative Klinik Linnea moment.

Who is the treatment suitable for?

Treatment of the skin around the eyes

Are there any restrictions associated with the treatment?

The treatment is not recommended for a person with blood cancer or skin cancer in the treated area, hepatitis C, HIV or AIDS, cardiovascular disease requiring blood thinners, platelet dysfunction syndrome (e.g. Von Willebrand's disease), critical thrombocytopenia or acute infection. The treatment is not performed on pregnant or breastfeeding women. If you have any questions about the suitability of the treatment for you, you can contact the Klinik Linnea staff directly.

 

Absolute contraindications:

– Platelet dysfunction syndrome

– Critical thrombocytopenia

– Hemodynamic instability

– Severe metabolic or systemic disorders

– Septicemia

– Acute/local infection at the procedure site

– Hypersensitivity to any ingredient, including HA

 

Relative contraindications:

 

– Continuous use of anti-inflammatory drugs within 48 hours of the procedure

– Continued use of other platelet-altering drug(s) or nutritional supplement(s) within 3 days of the procedure

– Corticosteroid injection at the treatment site within a month of the procedure

– Systemic use of corticosteroids within 2 weeks of the procedure

– Smoking

- Recent fever or illness

– Malignant diseases, especially those affecting the blood, bone marrow or bones, and cancers in the metastatic stage

- Autoimmune diseases involving antibodies that are progressive (Hashimoto's, rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, etc.)

– Coagulation disorder

– Hemoglobin count < 10 g/dl – Platelet count < 105/ µl

 

To achieve the best result, the patient should be 10 days before and 20 days after the procedure without using NSAID medications. Paracetamol can be used as a painkiller.

Healing time

There is no actual recovery time in the treatment. However, you should always be prepared for slight reddening of the skin during injection treatments. Slight swelling and bruising are possible. Most of the clients can return to their normal routines immediately after the treatment.

Maintenance of results

The most optimal and long-lasting results are obtained with serial treatment. We recommend performing PRP treatment 6-10 times in a series, with treatment intervals of 3-4 weeks. After this, maintenance treatments 2-3 times a year. The number of serial treatments is always planned in more detail according to the needs of your skin in consultation with a Klinik Linnea skin professional. The effects of the treatment are visible in about three weeks.

 

Remember to also take care of your skin with home care products. Home care further improves treatment results and also maintains them. Klinik Linnea recommends high-quality ZO Skin Health or AlumierMD products for home care.
