Applications for Platelet Rich Plasma PRP

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is utilzed in many aspects of aesthetic medicine. In my world of aesthetic medicine, the uses for PRP have continuously evolved. There will be additional uses in the future. However, I thought I would start the new year out with a review.

SKIN REJUVENATION: Probably the broadest application is skin rejuvenation. The reason is simple. This is the mpost requested aesthetic medical procedure. PRP injections have proven to be efficacious because they increase dermal collagen production levels. Consequently, skin appears more youthful and radiant.

Platelet Rich Plasma may also be utilized in conjunction with other modalities to increase the positve effects upon skin texture and tone. For example, topical application of PRP and/or microneedling together with injections of PRP may enhance the postive effects of PRP.

HAIR REJUVENATION: PRP has been successfully employed to treat androgenic alopecia (hair loss). Results have been very variable but it is undeniable that this modility holds a lot of potential as a frontline defense against hair loss and as a weapon to regrow lost hair.

PRP has been combines with transplantation surgery as well as utlized as a stand alone procedure. The results have been outstanding both in terms of hair density as well as number of follicular units (number of hairs) LOL.

ACNE SCARRING: PRP in conjunction with microneedling has also proven effective to approve the appearanace of scars. Best results may also require laser to dimish the discoloration but PRP and microneedling siugnificantly improve the appearanace of all scarring.
