Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Treatments
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP), the hugest leap in the scientific and medical field, where hundreds of theoretical and experimental researches were performed to prove its effectiveness and positive results at the level of the renewal processes of various cell types in the human body, where this technique is based on different levels of stem cells* stimulation.
* Stem cells are the foundation cells for our bodies, and throughout our lives, we continue to rely on persisting stem cells to repair injured tissues and replace cells that are lost every day, such as those in our skin, hair, blood, and the lining of our gut area.
Collecting of a very small amount of blood (10 ml) from the patient using special disposable and sterilized vacuum tube is needed as a first step, then Red Blood Cells (RBC) are separated away from the plasma using a Center fusion Machine, a special medical device that needs 9- 12 min of high-speed rotation for the isolation of autologous platelet plasma.
Second step of preparing the PRP shut is done by carefully pouring the plasma away from RBC residue and adding special pharmaceutical products to stimulate the dividing process of the platelets to create thousands of stem cells instead, and this fluid is reinjected in the treatment zone.
PRP indication fields
There are several fields of medicine that can benefits from PRP treatments as the following:
- Cosmetology – Restoring Natural Beauty – (Face, Neck, and Hands)
PRP for face, neck and hands, is the best solution for enhancing elasticity and a smoother skin.

PRP injections can prevent stretch marks if applied regularly during pregnancy.
- Trichology – The Secret for Great Hair
PRP treatments must be used as complementary treatments after hair transplant procedures, to restore the implanted hair and increase the strength of the transplanted hair follicles.
Plasma is injected into the scalp to reactivate dead cells and stimulate hair growth, prevent hair loss and reduce hair loss. PRP can normalize function of sebaceous glands, eliminate seborrhea, dryness and itch, reduce brittleness and split ends, increase hair diameter and restore hair elasticity, shine and thickness.
- Frequency of needed PRP injections
Depending on each individual case, doctor will decide how many sessions are needed for a complete healing, usually not less than three sessions at intervals of three to four weeks between each session.
Mesotherapy for a fabulous feeling and younger looking
Mesotherapy is a minimally invasive procedure that is widely used to treat various injuries and medical conditions. This medical specialty targets problem areas with superficial microinjections of conventional or homeopathic medicines, vitamins, minerals, amino acids, nucleic acids and co-enzymes that can be tailored to each patient’s individual needs. Mesotherapy is a treatment that stimulates the mesoderm, which relieves a wide variety of symptoms and ailments since those products are delivered directly into the mesoderm (middle layer of skin approx. 1mm deep) that are highly specific to the condition being treated.
Mesotherapy employs both the physical (mechanical) and the chemical stimulation, since the needles are creating micro perforations that inducing the healing process. The posttraumatic response of the organism is to produce collagen and elastin – two of the key building blocks of skin. As there is no removal or “real” damage to existing collagen, the new formation of it simply adds to existing levels and the injected active ingredients will stimulate the healing process. The quality and quantity of the injected product and its composition regarding the indication to treat is of first importance.
Mesotherap can be used for:
- Eliminating cellulite & localized fat deposits.
- Promoting weight loss and body sculpting.
- Providing anti-aging benefits to the skin (face & body).
- Preventing hair loss and stimulating hair growth process.
Cellulite usually appears between the ages of 25 and 35, and progressively worsens with time. It is not related to obesity particularly, since it can occur from slow metabolism, insufficient circulatory, unbalanced hormones, poor lymphatic drainage. Although it’s easily treated with a few Mesotherapy sessions in its early stages, once cellulite progresses to more advanced stages, treatment usually requires a greater number of Mesotherapy sessions.
A Mesotherapy formula is usually customized for each patient, since different types of cellulite require different injection technique, and it is completely safe when performed by a well-trained physician. All patients return to work the same day.
Mesotherapy is a procedure used for promoting weight loss and body reshaping, it can also reduce, eliminate and contour specific undesired fat pockets.
A medical history and physical examination is required prior to receiving treatment for weight loss and body sculpting. (Once injected into the skin, the formula slowly diffuses into the fat, and breaks it down. The number of weight loss and body sculpting treatments required varies from person to person.
Mesotherapy is a safe, natural alternative to invasive cosmetic procedures. The Mesolift process delivers vitamins, minerals and amino acids directly into the skin to nourish and rejuvenate, promote production of collagen and elastin, and stimulate your metabolism. As your skin ages, circulation decreases, and the resulting reduction of oxygen and nutrients hinders your body’s ability to flush out toxins. This is what drives premature aging and causes the skin to develop an ashen appearance.
After treatment, patients commonly describe their skin as looking rested, radiant, glowing and firmer. Mesotherapy can be used a supplement, or an alternative, to many anti-aging regimens, including botox, laser resurfacing, peels, antioxidants, topical creams and facelifts.
Mesotherapy is also a highly effective rejuvenating treatment. The procedure can be used to tone and tighten sagging skin on the neck, legs, abdomen, arms and hands.
Most forms of hair loss are caused by:
- Hormone imbalances
- A lack of the right nutrients
- Reduced blood circulation

There is no dressing or local anesthesia required, and after the treatment you can just go back to work.
Mesotherapy for hair loss can:
- Improve blood circulation.
- Reduce inflammation.
- Stimulate collagen.
- Increase follicle size to stop hair loss.
- Stimulate hair growth.
- Stops hair loss.
