This video shows the technique used to treat stretch marks with platelet-rich plasma.
STEP BY STEP PROTOCOL
EVALUATION AND PREPARATION
After reviewing your medical questionnaire, your treating professional will conduct a complete assessment, starting with pictures taken from different angles and a visual analysis. He will prepare the area to be treated by disinfecting it with compresses and an alcohol solution. This will eliminate all the impurities and the sebum present on your skin to promote better penetration of the PRP.
The professional will take a blood sample, usually from a vein located in the cubital fossa. It is important to be well hydrated in order to facilitate this step. Next, the collection tube will be installed in the centrifuge and then, in just a few minutes, the platelet-rich plasma will be separated from the other blood components and will be ready for your treatment.
PLATELET-RICH PLASMA INJECTIONS
The syringe containing your PRP will then be installed on the injection gun. The depth and pressure to squeeze the PRP out of the syringe will then be adjusted. The professional will do as many injections as possible on the treated area to get the best results possible. The more perforations there are, the better the collagen stimulation and therefore, the results. Don't worry, the procedure will be very tolerable and does not require anesthesia.
MOISTURIZING CREAM APPLICATION AND POST-TREATMENT INSTRUCTIONS
The session will end by letting the PRP dry for a few minutes, then applying a moisturizer with sun protection. Your professional will suggest a number of treatments at specific intervals. We will advise you to make your next appointment in advance to be able to book the time slot that suits you best.
