  • What is PRP?
    PRP is a form of treatment made by the injection of a substance obtained from the person's own blood, consisting of the initials of the words in the expression "Platelet Rich Plasma" in English. The injected substance is platelet-enriched plasma. Plasma is special cells called platelets or other factors that help blood to clot. Plasma also contains various proteins that promote cell growth. By isolating and concentrating the plasma from the blood, physicians obtain a blood component called PRP, which is a plasma richer in platelet cells.
  • Is There a Risk in PRP Treatment?
    Since the blood is taken from the same patient to be administered, the risks of PRP treatment are minimal. There is minimal risk of infection from blood aspiration or injection at the treatment site. Since Buffy Coat is an autologous material, a negative or allergic side effect against PRP is unlikely
  • What are the advantages of S&M PRP Unique Kit and Highcell PRP Kit?
    All clinical and scientific studies suggest that the platelet ratio required to be obtained in PRP is 1 million per microliter. Too much platelet rate causes cell destruction called apoptosis, too little platelet rate does not provide adequate treatment. This is whyOptimum platelet ratio should be around 1 million. It is very difficult to achieve this ratio in straight tubes (Classic tubes and biochemistry tubes) because Buffy Coat is collected in a very thin layer (1mm) and efficient collection with a needle is not achieved. This is why patients complain that "I had PRP done, it didn't help etc" and that physicians could not benefit from this excellent treatment method. The thin throat design in our Unique PRP and Highcell PRP models has given excellent results as it perfectly adjusts the Buffy Coat part and provides the desired platelet concentration in each application. These products, which we have been offering to our customers for about 7 years, have been used more than 1 million times to date, and patient returns have resulted in 99.8% success.
  • When does PRP treatment show its effect in knee joint, skin and hair applications?
    The aim of PRP treatment is to secrete the Gorwth Factor (Growth Factors) contained in the alpha granules in the thrombocyte cells and to provide rejuvenation (tissue regeneration) in the target tissue. This process starts immediately after the injection and reaches its highest level within 2-3 days. Although the main effect varies from patient to patient and depending on the condition of the disease, it usually shows its effect in 10-12 days. If the effect of PRP is not seen in the first session, it can be reapplied at intervals of approximately 12-15 days.
  • I had PRP done on my hair but it didn't help? What is the reason?
    If the right kit is not used in PRP Treatment, the treatment usually fails. The PRP Tube used in the treatment should enrich the free-flowing platelets in the blood by around 1 million per microliter. If the tube used is not correct and efficient, this number is around 300-350 thousand and this does not give the desired result. However, in clinical studies, it has been proven that PRP Treatment strengthens the hair follicle, stops shedding by 98% and increases the hair follicle thickness from 40 microns to 72 microns. Actual PRP treatment cannot be performed with conventional biochemistry tubes, and platelet count of the used PRP tube should be requested.
  • Exorbitant price problem in PRP? What should be the PRP Treatment Prices?
    Unfortunately, PRP Treatment prices vary from product to product, from clinic to clinic. There is not a big difference in the market between PRP Kit prices, but price changes are observed due to the differences in the application quality of the practitioner clinics and health professionals. The SUT application price recommendations of the Ministry of Health regarding the PRP application price have been published. When you browse this document and contact your doctor, it will provide you with the necessary discount.
  • What are the indications of PRP Treatment? What diseases is it used in the treatment of?
    The main indications of autologous treatment methods such as PRP and Stem Cell therapy are as follows; PRP in the treatment of osteoarthritis: PRP and Stem Cell therapy give serious positive results in joint pain, OA disease, cartilage deformation. Hair Mesotherapy: PRP and Stem Cell (Renewa Capilla Kit) give serious positive results in strengthening weakened hair, increasing the attitude of hair follicles after hair transplantation and androgenic hair loss problems. Erectile Dysfunction (PRP in Urology): In case of erectile dysfunction, PRP injection gives serious positive results. In addition, PRP application for penis development gave very positive results. Skin Rejuvenation: PRP gives positive results in the removal of skin wrinkles, removal of acne scars, thanks to Endothelial Based GF Growth Hormone. Infertility (PRP and Stem Cell in Gynecology): In uterine wall applications, PRP increases fertility by decreasing the level of FSH hormone. In addition, stem cell therapy gave faster results in this area. PRP in Cardiovascular Surgery: PRP application to the closed surface while closing the sternum after the operation significantly reduced deep wound infection and accelerated wound healing. PRP in Post-Op Wound Treatment: After all surgical interventions, PRP applied to the wound surface allowed the wound to heal quickly without infection. PRP in Dental Applications (Dental Treatment): With the Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF) method, the adhesion of dental implants to the bone and rapid healing are provided. In the healing of long bone fractures, PRP mixed with bone graft provided rapid healing of the bones.
  • Is PRP Treatment covered by SSI? Is it covered by insurance? Why do physicians recommend unpaid treatment?
    Unfortunately, PRP Treatment is not covered by the state by SSI. SGK has published a price reference for PRP treatment, but this has to be borne by the patient. Our physicians recommend the best treatment method for the patient and leave the decision to the patient. There is no ulterior motive of our physicians here. PRP treatment is a scientific treatment method with proven effectiveness and our physicians recommend this method to their patients under current conditions.
  • What is the importance of centrifuge device in PRP treatment?
    As it is known, the most important factor in PRP is the differentiation of platelet cells in the desired number. The therapeutic threshold platelet count in PRP is 1,000,000 PLT/ul. Unfortunately, this number cannot be achieved in simple method tubes and simple method devices. For an efficient PRP treatment, the flying rotor of the centrifuge must be vibration free, fulfilling the desired RCF value.
  • What are the causes of swelling and inflammation in the knee in PRP knee joint applications?
    In PRP Knee applications, some patients complain of swelling and severe pain in the knee. PRP is actually a treatment without such side effects. The reason for such complaints is that inflammation developed in the joint before the PRP treatment. If there is an existing infection in the patient's joint, PRP should not be applied, otherwise PRP will cause severe pain in the knee and increase the existing infection. In such patients, it will be more beneficial to apply PRP after the infection is cured with anti-inflammatory treatment before PRP.
