PRP treatment – Platelet Rich Plasma - skin rejuvenation with blood plasma

PRP treatment is one of the most popular skin rejuvenation methods which uses derived growth factors from a patient’s blood plasma. This allows tissue regeneration and better skin blood flow. It improves skin tone, elasticity, and stimulates the formation of new collagen.


As the years pass, the skin loses elasticity, radiance, and usual tone. It contains less and less collagen which makes skin tight and wrinkles start to appear. PRP treatment with the patient’s own plasma provides outstanding results in skin rejuvenation. This method affects the natural formation of new collagen in the skin.

What is PRP – Platelet Rich Plasma?

Platelet Rich Plasma is rich in blood platelets. It is obtained by centrifuging the patient’s blood, and the serum injected into the skin is full of platelets that are up to 4 times higher than usual, which release growth factors. For over a decade, this rejuvenation procedure has been extremely popular because of its effects.

This treatment helps the tissue to regenerate. It is also used for skin rejuvenation, and treatment of osteoarthritis and injured tendons and cartilage. This therapy is one of the most advanced medical methods – advantage is that it uses the body’s natural ability to heal itself. For example, when we hurt the skin, the body’s defensive reaction is to send platelets to the injured spot to accelerate the wound healing process.

What is PRP treatment used for?

Since 2005 is used for skin rejuvenation, and for more than 30 years in medicine, especially in orthopedics and cardiology.

PRP method is used when it is necessary to stimulate tissue regeneration and faster recovery:

  • in aesthetic medicine,
  • of degenerative changes in the joints,
  • in chronic wounds treatment,
  • of musculoskeletal injuries.

How is PRP treatment done at Diva Clinic?

At Diva Clinic, this simple dermatological procedure begins with an examination by an expert in dermatology. Thereafter, a small amount of the patient’s blood is taken to extract platelets that release growth factors and reject leukocytes and erythrocytes.

This is achieved with a special device that separates them during strong centrifugal force. In that obtained serum are added active substances to stimulate platelets to release growth factors.

The purified serum is applied to the skin by very thin needles, known as mesotherapy technique.

Within 7 to 10 days after the procedure, the applied platelets release growth factors. Better hydration and blood flow are achieved, the skin is nourished and receives more oxygen. This treatment:

  • improves skin tone,
  • skin tonus,
  • color and
  • skin texture.

The treatment lasts for about 15 minutes, and after the procedure, the patient can continue with everyday routine immediately.

This treatment is recommended for people who want to get refreshed skin and slow down the aging process without using aggressive treatments.

This method is also known as “vampire facial” and “Dracula therapy”.

Procedure is used for:
stimulating the formation of new collagen networks,
improving skin tone,
maintaining skin tonus and freshness,
controlled skin aging,
acne scar treatment,
improving hair growth,
wrinkles removal.

IS PRP treatment safe?

Absolutely. PRP is a safe procedure because it uses the plasma of the patient itself, so there is no fear of allergic response or any other immune reaction of the body.

How many PRP treatments are recommended?

Diva Clinic’s experts are recommending 3 to 5 treatments every 12 months, 4–6 weeks apart. Since the patient’s own plasma is used during the procedure, there is no limit on how many treatments can be performed over a one year period.

The first results in skin improvement are visible one week after PRP treatment, and the full effect is achieved a month after the procedure.

This treatment is recommended for people who want to get refreshed skin and slow down the aging process without using aggressive treatments.

Can PRP be performed without needles?

Yes. For those who are afraid of needles, the PRP procedure can be done by combining with laser rejuvenation. Combining these two anti-age methods has a powerful effect – combines the effect of laser rejuvenation with the stimulation of regeneration by blood plasma.

The laser makes micro-cuts into which the centrifuged serum from the blood plasma is applied, which guarantees that this procedure is comfortable for the patient

Can PRP be combined with other rejuvenation procedures?

Of course. PRP provides excellent results in combination with mesotherapy, laser treatments, hyaluronic acid fillers

Are there any other aesthetic procedures that use PRP?

At Diva Clinic, PRP is also used in hair loss treatments, and in combination with laser therapy or mesotherapy – for skin rejuvenation and scar removal.

Mesotherapy and PRP

Regular use of mesotherapy cocktails and growth factors maintain skin tonus and freshness and contribute to slowing skin aging.

PRP hair treatment

It is used for hair growth when thinning occurs, but also when you want to have lush, and stronger hair that grows faster.

When those 2 methods are combined, the treatment has a cumulative effect. Laser equalizes the skin, stimulates the formation of new collagen, with an anti-inflammatory and regenerative effect, which improves the quality of the skin.

The PRP method further contributes to the production of collagen, so after treatment, the skin structure is repaired – new, young tissue is created.
