WHAT IS GRP (GROWTH FACTOR RICH PLASMA)?
GRP treatment is made using approximately as little 10cc blood taken by doctor from your arm. This taken blood is turned at high speed (2000rpm) in centrifuge and at the end of 9-10th minute, the rich plasma part is obtained from blood cells we call platelet and from Growth factors. Following that, activator (buffy coat) is added and centrifuge is obtained again at a higher speed (4000rpm). This plasma is injected to necessary parts of the skin via ultra fine tip needles. Thus, increase in collagen and elastin which are among the main structures forming our skin are triggered in the most natural way.
