Platelet rich plasma, abbreviated PRP, is obtained from the client’s own body. It is often used to stimulate skin repair and make the skin look younger. This works by using the body’s natural growth factors, which are present in high amounts in PRP and platelets. PRP skin treatment results in less wrinkling, less scar, more evenly colored skin and a return of volume in aging skin to a more youthful appearance. Results are often dramatic; reducing the cosmetic appearance of a face by 5-15 years is common. Making a neck look 10-20 years younger is common with impressive wrinkle reduction. The best results are in those with the most wrinkles, sun damage, volume loss and/or scar. A pretty, young girl with clear skin will typically not get dramatic results. Those who have some wrinkles, sun damage and/or scar have easily visible improvement, which makes the procedure especially popular in those over 40 and in anyone with acne scars or sun damage. Bags under the eyes and drooping eyelids also improve nicely. PRP can be used in any skin color, unlike most laser therapies.
