The realm of aesthetic medicine has witnessed numerous innovations and treatments designed to rejuvenate, repair, and enhance the skin’s vitality. Among these innovations, PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma) and Mesotherapy stand out as two of the most sought-after non-surgical treatments. Let’s delve deeper into the core of these procedures, exploring their mechanisms, benefits, and unique features.
What Are PRP and Mesotherapy?
PRP is derived from an individual’s own blood. It’s a concentrated solution of platelets, which are components of the blood known to have healing properties and growth factors. Mesotherapy is a non-surgical cosmetic procedure that involves the injection of vitamins, enzymes, hormones, and plant extracts into the skin to rejuvenate it and treat localized fat deposits.
What Does Mesotherapy Do?
Mesotherapy is an effective method frequently used in beauty applications. Before the procedure, it is critical to choose the right mesotherapy method and make sure that the person does not have any systemic disorders and does not use medications that prevent bleeding.
Mesotherapy increases collagen levels in the skin and helps the skin to become more vibrant, fresh and radiant. The frequency and duration of the application may vary depending on the drugs and substances used; however, as a general rule, 3-5 sessions in total are recommended at intervals of 2-4 weeks. In the light of this information, it is of great importance to consult a specialist when deciding on mesotherapy.
What Does PRP Do?
PRP application contributes to the strengthening of hair follicles by awakening them. Thanks to this method, hair strands can be strengthened, while hair loss problems can be reduced or completely eliminated. PRP’s ability to revitalize hair follicles allows new hair strands to grow. PRP can also be combined with mesotherapy treatment to achieve more effective results. Weak hair strands can become thicker and more resilient with PRP treatment. Hair follicles are nourished and strengthened with this treatment and your hair can have a fuller appearance.
How Long Does PRP and Mesotherapy Take?
PRP mesotherapy is a method of injecting platelet and fibrin components obtained from the individual’s own blood and enriched with special processes back into the individual for cosmetic or therapeutic purposes (such as skin and joint treatments). This procedure takes about 20 minutes. First, the patient’s blood is centrifuged in a special process to isolate the most active fibrin and platelets. Then, this enriched component is carefully injected into the area to be treated. This method offers effective results in many areas, from skin rejuvenation to the treatment of joint disorders.
Mesotherapy is a procedure that uses microinjections into the skin and this can cause the skin to become sensitive. It is important to take care of your skin for the first 48 hours after the procedure. Here are the things you should pay attention to during this period:
- Avoid direct contact with the skin for the first 15 hours after the procedure. During this time, avoid contact with water and other substances, i.e. it is recommended not to take a shower.
- Avoid heavy make-up for the health of your skin. Also, avoid contact with pool or sea water for the first few days to minimize the risk of infection.
- Avoid exposure to sunlight. Slight crusting that may occur on the skin after mesotherapy may cause uneven contact with the sun, which may lead to tone differences. For the same reason, avoid using a solarium.
- If your application was performed on other parts of your body, avoid tight clothing that squeezes these areas.
