is best known for its wonderful act of skin rejuvenation. When PRP
is injected into particular parts of the skin, its high platelet concentration functions as a matrix that stimulates the growth of new collagen, revitalizes skin tissue and hence leads to a naturally smooth and firm skin. As a result, PRP
treatment gets rid of wrinkles and creates a smoother skin feel and tone.
There is a huge difference between PRP therapy and other skin injections of fillers. Most fillers, including Juvederm and Restylane, are composed of solid material which fills skin lines and folds. They often last for short period of time and require repeated treatments to seal the area yet again. On the other hand, PRP fuels collagen growth for absolute facial rejuvenation instead of individual wrinkle enhancement. Platelet Rich Plasma therapy is recommended for faces that appear drawn, to soften below eye puffiness, enhance the overall skin tone, texture and tightness and seal skin areas where fillers are not able to reach. Fillers such as Juvederm and Restylane can be applied together with PRP given that the two forms of skin treatment actually serve different purposes. The fillers will fill particular wrinkles while PRP will enhance overall wrinkle improvement.
Platelet rich plasma (PRP) therapy is a revolutionary new treatment that relieves pain by promoting long lasting healing of musculoskeletal conditions. When the body suffers a soft tissue injury, its natural response is to deliver platelet cells to the area. Packed with growth and healing factors, platelets and other cells initiate repair and attract the critical assistance of stem cells. PRP therapy’s natural healing process intensifies the body’s efforts by delivering a higher concentration of platelets directly into an area of injury.
Initial improvement may be seen within a few weeks (depending on injury), gradually increasing as the healing progresses. Research studies and clinical practice have shown PRP therapy to be very effective at relieving pain and returning patients to their normal lives. Both ultrasound and MRI images have shown definitive tissue repair after PRP therapy, confirming the healing process. The need for surgery can also be greatly reduced by treating injured tissues before the damage progresses and the condition becomes irreversible.
There is enough evidence to show that Platelet Rich Plasma can be used to treat several skin issues such as hair loss, superficial and surgical injuries, and post-traumatic scars. Schedule a consultation to find out if PRP is right for you.
