PRP – platelet-rich plasma
PRP is a technique used in many medical specialties. In cosmetic surgery, we use it to rehydrate the skin, treat dark circles and furrows. PRP platelet-rich plasma can be combined with other techniques. It is also an interesting alternative to injecting fillers, especially hyaluronic acid.
In our practice, we use platelet-rich plasma in particular to give a boost of radiance or to treat dark circles with discoloration.
This involves collecting approximately 10ml of your own blood. The latter is then treated to obtain a citrine liquid called plasma, without red blood cells, but rich in platelets. As with mesotherapy, we perform an intradermal injection of plasma obtained from the entire area to be treated. The results are visible very quickly with little/no side reaction.
