What is PRP with Hyaluronic Acid?

PRP treatment with hyaluronic acid is an innovative technique which combines two extremely popular treatments in one. These treatments are the following: Autologous Mesotherapy and Hyaluronic Acid mesotherapy.

Which are the advantages of autologous PRP facial mesotherapy?

Autologous PRP mesotherapy enables changing of texture and appearance of the skin, by offering immediate results. It is about an advanced form of mesotherapy, during which, plasma is used, that comes from patient’s own blood .

It is used in skin suffering from acnefreckles or discoloration and the results are the following:

  • restoration of small wrinkles naturally, helping to their elimination
  • enhancement of collagen production
  • radiance and hydration

Which are the benefits of facial mesotherapy with hyaluronic acid?

Hyaluronic acid treatment has the following benefits:

  • eliminates signs of tiredness of the face
  • provides deep hydration of the skin
  • improves deep wrinkles and expression lines

How does PRP with hyaluronic acid is performed?

Initially, blood samples (8-10ml) are taken from patients. Then blood is centrifuged in order to isolate the plasma, which is rich in platelets, from the other components of blood. After separation, plasma is activated by adding nucleotide solution (DNA Activator) and calcium standard solution (Ca++).

Thanks to the growth factors contained in the platelets, skin fibroblasts proliferate and consequently, collagen and elastin production is enhanced. Then, the plasma is amplified with hyaluronic acid in order to obtain the multivalent end product.

The particular treatment is performed in 2 methods. Either by needling or with a specific medical device of micro needling (Dermapen).

  • Needling

Injectable autologous mesotherapy acts through a very thin needle (30G), in order to achieve the anticipated therapeutic effect. The solution is injected directly into the subdermal tissue, in order to have the desired results.

  • Dermapen

It is about a relatively new method, similar to the injectable, but covers all the areas of head/neck/chest in order a solution of equal volume to be injected in adjacent areas that are going to be treated.

With this technique, we use a machine in the form of pen, with 12 pin-needles. These penetrate the skin up to 100 times per second, with adjustable speed and depth 0,25 – 2,5 mm, depending on the area we are treating.

With this method, we minimize the following:

  • skin damage
  • pain
  • bruising
  • recovery time

At the same time, we activate collagen and elastin production in the skin surface and in combination with the multivalent end product we are using, we achieve the desired results.
